These tapes are way thicker and a special material that’s absorbs impact. It would be too thick for a rail saver.

They have a demo of this tape on a glass tube and hitting it with a metal hammer and it does not break

This Shelter tape is way thicker and more protective than helicopter tape.

I use that in scuff areas on my bikes so I know the difference

With helicopter tape you get the same protection as rail saver for half the price and unless part of your exercise is taking the board downhill as a snow sled hitting some tree trunks on your way down you should be fine ;)

The shelter tape comes in 2 thicknesses 0.6mm and 1.2mm.
 I checked and the rail tape I use is 0.4mm. So even the 0.6mm is a big difference.
 Will I be able too bend it around a 90° corner though? I didn't put rail saver here as it didn't really want too bend around the corner.
 I can get a 5m roll of the 0.6mm for 25 euros.

I have bent shelter off road 90 degrees but make sure it and the Board are warm when you do that.
