racerailz are good for what they are designed for. The low speed stunter who also rides on the street. If you think about it...they are metal and metal TRANSFERS energy and doesn't absorb it like sliders or other materials. Anything that transfers energy isn't the best for protecting the bike if high impacts happen (over 40mph). Just basics physics is all it is. You don't see any type of protection for drivers/bikes made out of hard metal. You want them to blow up, smash, scrape, and disfigure as that is them absorbing the energy. Same reason the inside of a helmet isn't made of metal or f1 cars...

Hope this explains. If you want them for low speed issues then they are fine.
