Arai Cheek Pads For Defiant Helmets

  • Riders will sometimes need to change the cheek pads that come installed in their helmets. Some people need a little more or less space, while others simply need to install a fresh set of pads for better comfort (and smell)
  • The pads both come out and can be installed quite easily
  • Use the chart below to figure out what size cheek pad you currently have based on your helmet size, and then pick a replacement set based on your need

You can buy the same thickness of cheek pad if you like the fit of your helmet and just need a replacement set. Or you can buy a different thickness cheek pad to adjust fit as all the cheek pads are interchangeable between the different helmet sizes. In addition to the cheek pad thicknesses listed above, there is an optional 15mm pad.


Changing cheek pads to change the helmet fit: To get MORE room in your helmet, you need to buy a SMALLER cheek pad. To get a TIGHTER fit, you need to buy a LARGER cheek pad. Example: If you have a size Large Defiant helmet, you have cheek pads that measure 25mm. If the helmet is too tight on you, a 15 or 20mm pad would give you more room.

Our Two Cents

Before you buy a set of replacement cheek pads, keep in mind that the pads that came with your helmet have a “micro-fit” feature that allows you to peel away a 5mm thickness of foam, which may be all you need to make those pads more comfortable. Try the peel away option first, and if they’re still too tight, we’re happy to sell you a replacement set.
