HJC Cheek Pads for CL-16 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. Simply slide the pad into the shell and snap the closures into place.
- 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.
Here is a link to HJC’s website where you can download helmet manuals by model. You’ll find information on installing and removing shields, base plates, cheek pads, chin curtains, etc, as well as helmet care and cleaning.
Use this table to determine what cheek pad size you currently have:
|Helmet Size||Cheek Pad Size||Shell Size|
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 long as you buy a pad to fit the same shell size. The cheek pads for the XS, Small and Medium helmets are interchangeable since those three sizes share the medium helmet shell size. Likewise, the cheek pads for the Large, XL, XXL and XXXL helmets are interchangeable since they all share a large shell size.
Changing cheek pads to change the helmet fit: To get MORE room in your helmet, you need to buy a THINNER cheek pad. To get a TIGHTER fit, you need to buy a THICKER cheek pad. Example: If you have a size Large CL-16 helmet, you have cheek pads that are 25mm thick. If the helmet is too tight on you, a 17 or 20mm pad would give you more room.
