First and foremost, the Arai RX-Q Cheek Pads are sculpted in a way that cradles the head from underneath rather than the traditional pushing-against-the-cheek for snug fit. You can throw out everything you know of a traditional helmet's pressure fit as Arai has created cheek pads with greater surface area that make for a comfortable, cradled fit.

Finally, all Arai RX-Q Cheek Pads come equipped with Arai's game-changing safety innovation, the Emergency Cheekpad Release System. They invented this system, which features pull tabs that allow the cheek pads to be quickly removed by EMTs for easy helmet removal in the event of unconsciousness resulting from a crash, and it has now been copied by other manufacturers.
Arai continues to dazzle with their helmet designs, from a performance and safety standpoint, and the Arai RX-Q is no stray, offering some of the finest long-distance functionality we've seen from a helmet.
