Bell Star Firm Cheek Pads
Bell Star Cheek Pads - 50mm
I purchased the Bell Star cheek pads from Revzilla after Bell sent some to me to try out because I was having fit issues with my Bell Star helmet. Bell sent me 55mm firm cheek pads and I found them to be too snug so I purchased the 50mm and it has completely changed the helmet. My helmet came with 40mm cheek pads and I was having big problems at speed with my helmet sucking up against my face and I have never had that happen with other helmets. I cannot believe the difference the change has made. I love my helmet now where before I was tempted to sell it and try something else. I am also so impressed with Bell's customer service when I emailed them on how to fix the issue. And as always thank you Revzilla for always being on point!

Exactly what I needed
I bought a Bell Star and the size was good, but not as tight through the face/cheek as I wanted for racing. I ordered the thicker firm cheek pads and now the fit is perfect. Installation was not hard either. I just took my time and they went in great. The fabric feels really nice as well. Overall, this was a great buy and worth every penny to get the fit just right.

Make your helmet fit you.
I really like the tunability of my Bell helmet. These cheek pads are just the ticket to making it fit perfect. I'm not sure how they determine what firm or soft is, because my firm pads feel pretty soft to me. I highly recommend these pads for no other reason then to get your helmet to fit just right, always a plus. The color didn't match the rest of the inside of the helmet but no biggy.

Now have a perfect fit
Ordered the 55mm for my XL helmet. The extra 5mm made all the difference and now my helmet fits perfect. Easy fix!

Good Replacement Pads
These were purchased for the Bell Star (Snell 2005) which was the first year of the redesigned Bell Star in 2008. The styling is slightly different than the pads that came with the helmet in that the replacements have webbing between the lower and upper pad. This doesn't cause any issue and the snaps line up correctly. Replacement color of the firm pads is black whereas the original pads were silver. Not sure if the silver pads were just for my version of the helmet or not but the two different colors next to each other don't look bad either, so it's a moot point. I prefer the firm pads over the soft pads because of the snug fit it provides in the helmet. Hats off the Bell for making different sizes in the pads, these make a great customized fit with the helmet. 50mm Firm with a Medium shell are perfect for me.

Made helmet fit more snug.
After purchasing a Bell Star Helmet (with 50mm cheek pads), I found that it was not as snug as my other brand helmet. After getting these larger cheek pads (55mm), my helmet fits the way I thought it should have to begin with.
If you're between sizes and you need to snug up the helmet to your face/head, then I recomment these replacement pads.

Great addition to my helmet
Only thing that I do not like is that for my Bell Star Hess, the color does not match the original liner. This one is total black.

Makes your bell helmet a better fit
If you have a top end bell helmet that just isn't fitting quite right or you want firmer cheekpads for the track, these are a must. I went a size tighter from stock. They don't seem much firmer at first, but once you put your helmet on, you can immediately tell a difference in fit. After spending the cost of a top end helmet, there is really no reason not to fork over another 20 or so to make the fit more precise. 5 stars.
