I haven't found any of the SFI spec to be easy to form to the roll cage and I have tried 3 different brands. If you do find some let us know on here.

I use the Allstar brand SFI padding. Take a heat gun and work it slowly into the bend.

I have found JAZ roll bar padding to be fairly easy to form and also has a velcro strip in it so you can remove it. With any brand take a heat gun a warm it up a little helps allot

Any sfi padding is going to be tough to bend...as mentioned a heat gun does wonders. I was able to do mine during the summer time and I just set it out in the sun for a while....bent easily without breaking

None, there is none I know of that conform well that are SFI approved and I have tried 4 brands. Worst was the Allstar and best I have found was Longacre. Heating them was a little help but still they crack and break.

The SFI stuff is very hard (Brittle) and I would think it should be softer to absorb shock better.

-a type of Cognitive bias where people with little expertise or ability assume they have superior expertise or ability. This overestimation occurs as a result of the fact that they do not have enough knowledge to know they don't have enough knowledge.

Before you argue with someone ask yourself, "Is this person mentally mature enough to grasp the concept of a different perspective?" If not there is no point to argue.
