Have Icon Four Horsemen Airmada Large Helmet. Helmet fit great but cheek pads were tight. Order a size smaller (20mm) than what helmet came with (25mm). Now helmet fits perfectly. Thanks Revzilla.

Corrado B: I ordered an Icon Airmada helmet, size small, and it fit well around the head, but the tightness and cushioning for my face needed some extra padding. Once I put these in the helmet, it was a perfect fit.Oct 22, 2014
O N: Stock pads on the XL were way too tight. XXL's are 5mm thinner on each pad.Sep 1, 2014
Jeff E: I purchased a the Icon Salient in green because I liked it, the brand because of the reviews and cost. The choice of being able to get a better fit with the cheek pads was also an important factor in the helmet purchase. After a month of wear I find I need a little bit thinner cheek pads.Jun 16, 2014
W C: I have a small head with fat cheeks so a medium helmet should fit my dome perfectly but it squeezes my cheeks too much. I'm trying these smaller pads so I can try to dial in a perfect fit around my face as well.Mar 31, 2014
jeffrey c: Bought Icon Airmada 4 Horseman Large, helmet fits great except little tight on my cheeks. hoping this will make my helmet fit comfortably. Thanks Revzilla!Feb 12, 2014
GREGORY D: Salient helmet I bought is very tight, which I like, but a little looser in the face will do the trick.Nov 16, 2013
A shopper asked:How are we supposed to wash them when they get dirty?Nov 26, 2014
Daniel H:I'm sure the Icon site has an answer to this, but failing that I use Woolite and warm water, make sure they don't get too soaked and before the need to wash arises I spray the inside of my helmet with Febreze Free Nature.Nov 26, 2014
A shopper asked:Just bought an XL Airmada(my first helmet ever). I like the fit of the liner, but it is tough to get the helmet on and off, and the cheek pads are a bit tight. Will larger cheek pads help me with the on/off issue? Or should I exchange the whole thing?Feb 19, 2014
ivan o:I had the same issue, found the stock cheek pads to tight . You'll need to go thinner. That solved my problem and the helmet is much easier to get on and off. Plus its way more comfortable on long rides since the pads don't smash my my cheeks in. Remember you don't want your helmet to loose, it needs to be snug so it wont wiggle when you shake your head. Get thinner pads the smaller the number, i went with the 20mm and it was perfect but i ride a MD helmet ..find out the stock L helmet pad size and go one step thinner.Feb 19, 2014
rick m:If its too tight u would want to get smaller/thinner cheek pads. The airmadas have different shell sizes as well as different cheek pad sizes for more options. Also, I found that if i set the helmet on top of my head and then push it down from the top it goes on much easier. Trying to pull the helmet down with the straps just wasn't working.Feb 19, 2014
Eitan T:Hi, I've had the same problem so i've got one size thinner cheek pads and it helped. Another thing - keep in mind that after approx. a couple of months of using the helmet your cheek pads will get thinner as a side effect of getting your helmet on and off everyday...Feb 19, 2014
Jeremy W:The cheek pads did not seem to help all that much with the on and off. The helmet is a race fit helemt which makes it.nice and snug and with the neck roll it is tough to get on and off. The only thing that the cheek pads did was make it more loose once the helmet is actually on. I bought a medium because once it is on it fits great and a large was way to big once on.Feb 19, 2014
A shopper asked:I recently purchased a Size Large Airmada (sportbike scheme) helmet. as I am riding it, I have noticed that the cheek pads do not provide enough force to keep the helmet located forward on my head; other than this caveat the fit of the helmet is perfect. is there a thicker pad that will work with this helmet to assist in keeping it properly located? being as the helmet is only like a month old, I don't want to purchase another new helmet.Oct 1, 2014
Matthew L:Yes there are. So, I bought the Airmada in an XL but the cheek pads were so tight that they gave me headaches. I believe that the XL Airmada came with 25mm cheek pads. So, I bought a pair of 20mm cheek pads and no longer get the headaches. A bit of lift, but not much. The size L Airmada also came with 25mm cheek pads. So, if I were you, I would purchase the 30mm to reduce the lift and give you a tighter fit. Oct 1, 2014
Brock F:Yes, buying a size larger cheek pads would help. Mine were too big originally and had to order smaller ones. The bigger cheek pads held the helmet too tight against my forehead while everything else fit fine, so I'm sure it would solve your problem. Check the chart to make sure you order the right size for your helmetOct 2, 2014
Ryan M asked:Does the 5MM difference from each size encompass the difference of both pads combined or is each side of the pad 5MM smaller than the next size? What I'm asking is, is the difference between each size 5MM or 10MM total?Sep 15, 2014
Daniel H:I'm not qualified to answer the specifics of your question Ryan, I think only Icon could do so. I didn't measure the pads because I had no way to do so. All I can say is I bought a Small helmet (I've worn Small helmets of every make for 40 years of riding) and it was way too tight. So I exchanged it for a Medium which still felt snug. I swapped out the cheek pads for one since thinner, and the headliner, and the helmet fits perfectly. It's one of the best helmets I've ever owned and it was worth the fiddling about to get it to fit.Sep 15, 2014
travis m:i have a md airmada and put in the 3xl-15mm cheekpads to make a looser fit, worked good for me, but if your wanting just slightly smaller cheekpads you might want to go with the 2xl-20mm cheekpadsNov 25, 2013
A S asked:hi, i got aairmada medium and the cheek pads are killing me i thought they would break in a little after a while but nothing...what size do i need to buy to have a slightly looser fit? thanksMay 23, 2014
Michael U:My boyfriend has a medium and experiences the same problem. You could order large cheek pads but I would call revzilla and ask them if the shell size for a medium and a large are different. I have an airmada in a XS. I ordered XXS cheek pads for mine because they don't make an XXS in this style helmet. I was able to do that because the shell size between the two were identical. Hope this helps. May 23, 2014
James P:Even with four different shell sizes (Anthony says in the video), the shell's internal cheek pad fitment component seems to have two brackets: 2XS-SM and MD-3XL. I doubt the buttons for 2XS-SM cheek pads would fit correctly in the MD shell.Apr 15, 2014
A shopper asked:I have the parahuman in large. Obviously cheeks pads are to tight helmet fits nice just squeezes the living hell out of my cheeks what would be the best size to get get xl20mm?Mar 29, 2014
jeffrey c:I have large helmet and the cheek pads (25mm) were little tight on my face, got the 20mm pads and now it's easier to get on and off, plus fits my face better. I recommend trying one size smaller. If they don't fit try next size. Revzilla is great with exchanging and returns. Hope this helps. Feb 26, 2014
