I was supposedly asking about doing turns at high speed. I suppose if the bank angle is always small, there's no issue. But in the real world, when pilots know that there is a big turn in a SID, especially if the aircraft would be normally be at high speed at that stage, do they enter a speed restriction so that the turn is taken more slowly (or there is already one in the SID??). Or is that not a factor?

Additionally bank angle is limited to 8° below 200ft.
That's an automatic function.
