There are 2 sizes of cheek pads provided, I find these actually contact the cheeks, so I’ve left them off, they don’t seem necessary and would make it hot to wear.
Isn’t that half the point? They’re there to stabilise the chin guard against your face I’d guess; stop it from clattering into your jaw and taking out your teeth in the event of a crash. The was a bit by Justin Leov on the EWS in Whistler where he said he takes them out on the transitions to make it cooler and then stuff them back in for the timed stages.Posted 3 years agotheendisnighMember

yeah maybe, but i think if it fails in such dramatic fashion you’d be in trouble anyway regardless of the pad. I reckon it still provides protection without them in place. Certainly from a faceplant impact I think it makes little difference if any. In the event of a side impact and the chin guard caving in you would have less protection. Personally, I can’t be arsed taking the helmet off to put them back in for descents and its too hot with them in this weather. The helmet is fairly resistant to twisting on the head even without the pads.Posted 3 years ago
