Bell Revolver EVO Cheek Pads
heavy, pressure on cheek bones
bought this hat and a transitions face shield.[love the transitions face shield] tried on the hat and it seemed fine, however after riding for an hour I could not stand the pain on my cheek bones. bought thinner cheek pads. Same problem. I cut and removed the foam that pressed on my cheeks and that seems to have solved the problem. had a back procedure and have to wait for that to heal before I can take a long ride to see if the problem is solved.

Just what I needed.
helmet was tight, thinner pads fixed that.

Great pads and shipping!
I have owned a revolver helmet for about three and a half years. It fit me fine with none of the problems that the others had mentioned in their reviews. The cheek pads had become compressed so I decided to use my revzilla cash to buy new pads of the original 40mm thickness. The pads arrived with the usual packaging which, just like in previous orders, involved lots of bubble wrap. They essentially padded the pads - LOL! The shipping was head-swimmingly fast just like with the other orders too!
I immediately inserted the new pads in my helmet. They took a little finesse with the last snap like others have mentioned in their reviews but so did the original pads. The helmet fit me fine when I tried it on. I plan on ordering the helmet liner next.

not for my fat, round head..
I like the helmet just fine. However, the stock 40mm cheek pads are too thick. The 35mm cheek pads are still too thick, but I can at least tolerate this helmet for a somewhat longer stint-approximately an hour. What Bell should really offer are cheek pads in 25mm and 30mm sizes. Until this happens, I'll be looking for other helmet options. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

No more headaches
I bought these to relieve the pressure against my temples while wearing my Revolver Evo when riding. Long rides were brutal and always ended in a serious headache that was tough to knock back. Getting these did the trick and now I'm headache free.
My only gripe with these cheek pads is that the snaps don't line up well and often come undone. I noticed that I had this problem with the stock pads as well, but these seem to be a bit worse. I end up having to check them frequently to make sure they are still snapped in. Otherwise they get the job done.

Still a little tight
I got these smaller pads to make a little more room in my Bell Revolver Helmet.
It did just that..a LITTLE more room.
Its still pretty difficult to get a pair of glasses on, though it did relieve some pressure from my cheeks .
Maybe after they break in a little more they will allow for a little more room.
All in all it does help if your cheeks are feeling a little too snug or giving you a 'flushing' like feeling in your cheeks while wearing the helmet.

Made my Revolver Evo fit even better!
I liked the fit of my Revolver Evo, but it seemed a little loose on the cheeks. I didn't know you could customize the fit, until I happened upon the replacement cheek pads. My helmet came with 40mm pads, and I switched to these 45's. What a difference it made. It hugs my face like it should and wind noise was reduced even further.

Easy way to fine tune the fit.
The helmet fit my long oval head better after I installed these slightly thicker cheek pads.
