    Certain speed and it doesn't matter anyways. Past a certain point, they only protect you from roadrash

    Best way to cut foam is with a hot wire...but, since you can't do that, I would suggest trying this...shape an old butter knife blade into a curve and perhaps shorten it...wrap the handle with a cloth and wear a thick leather glove...heat the blade with a blowtorch until it slips thru the foam easily. Reshape as needed.

    Never tried this, but it's worth a shot.

    Even a metal coathanger might work, heated with a torch, or even the stovetop...if you could hold and maneuver it safely and accurately.

    Google hot wire foam cutter to get the general idea.
