My knees usually slam hard enough into the handles (shifters) to prevent my genitals from slamming into the stem. I've been crashing for years: you don't need a cup for your bike, all you need is practise.

Stem pads never worked on BMX bikes anyway. They were just something else to sell. I have been a competitive cyclist for over 10 years and I have never, not once, hit my junk on my stem.

They should have invested their time in making an unbreakable collar bone. That would be a winner.
