Arai XD-4 Cheek Pads
Just what I needed
my xd4 was slightly large for my head so I ordered thicker cheek pads and helmet liner to make the helmet fit tighter. Success. I feel much more secure. I ordered a medium helmet, when I should've ordered a small. Glad these items are available for a better fit

Purchased a Small Arai XD and I kept getting a headache during long rides that started from my sinus area and worked its way to the top of my head. The helmet size was correct and I guessed that the headache I had might be due to the pressure from the cheek pad being exerted on my sinus. Swapped out the cheek pad for one size smaller and now have yet to experience a headache. So something worked.
FYI: The cheek pad size reduces the overall length not the thickness.

Arai cheek pads & the helmet
Riders understand its the crown of the head which should be used to properly fit a helmet which is precisely what I used when purchasing my Arai helmet. Unfortunately the cheek pads were too tight which another way to say it is my cheeks were too big for the helmet. Rather than the manufactuer taking into consideration the variance in head sizes, Arai choose to go with the one size fits all, pass the cost onto the customer approach. The small cheek pads fit perfectly but at a cost of $49 plus shipping/handling. With any luck Arai will offer different cheek pads at the point of sale someday... and I want a pony.

Nice to have spares!
Quality product, just wanted a second set to swap-out after a long day of riding.

Custom fit a plus for Arai Helmets
I am hard to fit. This adjustability made all the difference comfortwise.

The originals were unconfortable for my type of head, these are better overall.

A bargain at almost any price
This is the second Arai I've owned, the first having been in the late 1980's. Why I didn't buy another one after that one I don't know...probably too cheap to realize what the quality was. At any rate, BEST HELMET I HAVE EVER OWNED! Hands down. I've been riding since 1974. I've owned Shoei's, HJC, and Airoh (British brand), and the Arai. It is by far the quietest and most effective helmet. Not only does it protect you from the pavement if such happens, but it FEELS GOOD!! Much quieter than riding without a helmet, great eye protection, the vents REALLY work, and the finish is amazing. I will NOT doubt Arai again.

The pads are very comfortable and the choice in sizes makes it easy to get the right fit.
