I hit a tree pretty hard two weeks ago. Bruised thigh, bruised arm/shoulder, and bark on my helmet and handlebars. Like I had to scrape the bark off the handlebars. I wish that tree was padded, it would've helped.

With how tight the trails are its not uncommon to brush a tree with the shoulder, the padding is nice for that.
