Replacement cheek pads for Arai RX-Q, Signet-Q and Corsair V Helmets
Arai's truly unique sculpted cheekpad shape cradles the head from underneath for a level of comfort and security that needs to be felt to be believed. With more surface area, it moves away from the typical "pressure fit" to a more "comfort fit" based on the design's cradle support. The design was influenced by Arai's F-1 drivers, the most demanding of all for fit.
Emergency Cheekpad Release System
This now-copied groundbreaking Arai safety innovation was specifically developed to allow easier access to an injured rider by sliding out easily, making helmet removal easier for trained medical personnel
Cheek Pad Adjustability
A cheek pad feature found only on Arai RX-Q and Signet-Q Helmets is a removable 5MM layer of foam. This allows more room if desired without having to purchase an entirely new cheek pad set.
All cheek pads are interchangeable between the different helmet sizes. Remember, if you need more room in the helmet you need to order a smaller (thinner) cheek pad. To make a helmet tighter, you would need to buy a larger (thicker) cheek pad.
Quality cheek pads
The pads fit perfect in my Arai helmet. Feels like new again.

Arai is always a head of the rest!
I'm a 'round-oval' and Arai gives me the most options when it comes to the helmet shapes. It doesn't stop there with the fit. The RX-Q cheek pads are available in multiple sizes to fit your face and then each pad has a 5mm thick pull away foam section to customize the fit even further. It feels like my RX-Q was built custom for my head. Swapping the cheek pads is easy enough, but the pads don't come with directions. Either do them one at a time (so you have the other side for reference) or if you get over zealous and pull them both out there are install vids on YouTube. I've had 3 Arais and I don't think I could ride in anything else. It's not just a helmet, it's a complete safety system for your head. It works better than anything else out there.

does what is says
My helmet never 'broke in' as much as I thought it would, and my cheeks were getting too much pressure for all day riding. These smaller cheekpads gave me the extra room that I needed.

Tyler T: My wife is in-between a small and medium helmet. She got a medium, but the cheeks were too loose. I am upgrading the stock 30mm cheekpads to 40mm. If they're too tight to begin with we can always take out the 5mm adjustment.Dec 3, 2014

Stephany M: I bought my RX-Q helmet in 2010. After 3 years of commuting and weekend touring in the desert heat, the helmet's cheek pads have compacted and it tends to not stay in the proper place on my face. Plus, I have a sort of skinny face, so I'm hoping a set of slightly thicker cheekpads (stock is 25mm; I'm ordering 30mm) will help keep the helmet in place over my cheekbones and help make my helmet fit like it did right out of the box.Aug 21, 2013
A shopper asked:I'd like to buy an Arai RX-Q helment but I could use a little sizing advice. My head measures 24 3/8" at my brow which is the largest measurement I came up with after a few times. My measurement is right at the end of the XL size but I think a 2XL would be a bit too large. What do you suggest?
Also I have kind of big cheeks. Should I just try out the helmet first then if its really snug maybe try out the 12mm? And if its kind of snug and maybe not too far off try the 15mm pads?
Howard K:I tried the standard cheek pads first, on my Signet Q, and took them out and put them under a stack of books overnight. I have done this before, and even used concrete blocks. It usually works, but in this case it didn't compress them enough so I ordered smaller cheek pads and removed the removable foam Aria puts on.
My suggestion from struggling with fit for a long time is to go with the Arai helmet that best fits your head shape (clearly the Signet Q in my case). go with the smaller size and compress or replace the cheek pads until you get the right fit. Just remember, the pads and liner will break in and loosen up after a few hundred miles.Sep 18, 2013
Calvin B:I had about the same problem on a large RX-Q, I ordered the large and was very tight in the cheeks so I ordered the next smaller size cheek pad and it fits great now, my favorite helmet.Sep 18, 2013
Frank L:I think I would go for an extra large because if you get the large ones you will have to trim them and will have less padding to protect you in the event you have God forbid an accident. Sep 18, 2013
