Bell RS-1 Replacement Cheekpads
Saved my helmet choice!
I've always had to compromise in helmet selection. The crown of my head is a Lg, but around my cheeks and jaw I'm more like an XL or even XXL. In the past, I was adding padding above the liner to snug the fit of a helmet that was really too big.
Bell changed my life by offering various size cheek pads! I pulled the pads out to find the right size for the top of my head, but noted that the cheek pads were way too tight when installed. I looked at the pad size, and used Bell's chart to select the thinnest option. Magic!
I wish Bell did two things: Detail what pads come installed in each helmet in the catalog, and offer one or two more thinner selections. I am using the 30mm pads, but could easily go to 25mm, if offered.
My helmet is the RS-1 RSD Flash Bronze special edition. It has a dark grey interior, however the replacements are light grey

My head size was on the XL side of Large vs Extra Large size chart. I decided to go with the extra large and it fit perfectly in the top of my head but the stock cheek pads were to lose on my face. These extra larges defiantly helped the size of my helmet!

Exactly what I needed!
Did the trick for me! Just needed a slightly thinner cheek pad for that perfect fit. They are another premium bell product for sure. Anyone that buys a bell helmet should be happy to know they can make their helmet custom fit to their exact needs. Revzilla is the best and most knowledgable site out there! Thanks for all the info!

Bought these in a 2X to replace the cheek pads in my medium Bell helmet because the stock pads pushed in too much on my cheeks. They fit almost perfect, snapped right in. Very comfortable. Shipping was insanely fast, Revzilla has made a lifelong customer out of me.

helped quiet my Bell
When I bought my Bell RS1, I bought at a store where I could try it on. I bought a large, even though a medium fit, because it was more comfortable, and the med. felt too snug. In retrospect, large was too loud because there were gaps in the padding. Purchasing these $20 replacement pads in the med size, I was able to change my helmet size back to a med, literally! Bell uses the same shell for both. Check the charts and tune your fit.

Good price and function
With a head circumference of 56.5 cm I am between a small and medium RS-1 Bell. I went with the medium and ordered the 5mm thicker cheekpads. Snapped in no problem and now I have a great fitting helmet.

Just what I needed!
Was having trouble finding a helmet that would fit me in the jaw/cheek area and was getting nervous I would have to order smaller cheek pads. So I went with the helmet I was eyeing for a while and got these cheek pads and I can tell you that they made the helmet fit like a glove. They were just what I needed to fix my problem!
