The pads turned a helmet I inherited into one that fits the way it should.

Arai XD-3 Cheek Pads
The Arai XD-3 comes with 25 mm cheek pads. I needed 20 mn in my medium helmet and my wife needed 15 mm in her helmet. The Motorcycle Superstore had them in stock and delivered them in a few days. The product is what it should be, only the price for simple cheek pad is too high. If you need them, you pay the price.

Arai Cheek Pads - Adjustment
I bought an Arai X-3 helmet in Medium; this is my typical size. But when I got the helmet, it was squeezing in my cheeks although the rest of the helmet fit fine. So I ordered a 20mm set of Cheek Pads to replace the stock medium set of 25mm.
The fit is now perfect. good to know that you can customize the fit. The pads themselves were exactly the same product that came out of the new helmet. So the quality, fit and finish are outstanding. A little expensive, but worth it for a custom fit.
