Great adjustment for greater fit and visibility
I bought this because my helmet fits very well all around the face, but it sat a bit low on my head. This brought the helmet up to where it should be, creating a snug fit and more visibility, especially in a tuck.
Please note, the "XS 13mm" DOES FIT in a size small, even though it says XS. The Revzilla team (John S.) was awesome enough to check with Shoei before I purchased it, and the pads fit the size small shell but just create a tighter fit as I wanted. Thanks again Revzilla!

I bought this liner to improve the fit of my Shoei GT-Air helmet that fit a little loose with the stock liner. This liner greatly improved the fit. Revzilla had a much better price than I would have paid if ordered from Shoei.

Need extra room in your Helmet?
I thought all was lost when I received my Shoei GT-Air and it was a very snug fit. I've always been a medium for my last 3 RF Shoei helmets. This replacement insert gave me just enough room to comfortably wear the GT-Air. Gonna have to wait a little while (break in) to use a helmet liner though.

Now it fits
My helmet was to to small for my big round head not it fits.

I just needed a snug fit after wearing a mask under my helmet during the winter. This does the trick nicely.

Michael B: Original was super stinky even after a mild soap bathSep 16, 2015
Cheol Ho H: Because I try the SM GT Air but it was to small, MD size it was a little bit loose so I am buying the cheek pad and center pad if fits me betterSep 9, 2015
H R: Replacement for current helmet inserts.Jun 11, 2015
Jeff B: I have a wind buffeting problem and I notice it goes away if I pull my helmet forward. If I wear a head sock, the buffeting goes almost away, but don't always want to wear one. I am hoping a larger center pad will give a tigher fit and reduce the wind buffeting as well.Jun 9, 2015
richard w: Got a killer deal on the helmet but it was a touch large, this will hopefully dial in the fit.Jan 23, 2015
Jorge P: I hoping this will solve a fit problem I'm having with my new tight helmet.Aug 12, 2014
Caner B: Because the current one size is change (L) and now my helmet like XL..This reason i bought these stuff.Jun 30, 2014
Glenn M: i wear a different inner liner in the winter as opposed to the summer due to the face mask.Mar 31, 2014
J O:You'll need to stick with the pads meant for the XL shell. I believe you can go up or down one size in each shell, so the XL 5mm is what you're looking for. Be forewarned the mounting system sucks, and will tend to pop loose. I went up to an XL 13 in my XL Wanderer. It pops loose all the dang time. I know the problem isn't isolated to my helmet or replacement pad as others have had the same issue.
It's the only negative I have for the system though. I still love the helmet.Apr 25, 2015
Fred J. B:
Thanks Jo, I ordered the XL 5mm after some research. Hopefully I get lucky and it doesn't pop loose on me too often that would make me sell the helmet asap. Especially since they just announced the photochromatic transition visor for the RF1200. I had a transition visor on my Bell Star and I can't for the life of think why so few companies have followed suit. It is the best feature I've ever had on any helmet. I'm hoping they come out with one for the GT Air even though it has an internal visor.

Benjamin F:You should get a 5mm XL. The XL comes with a stock 9mm pad. If you want a thicker or thinner pad you don't order a pad for another shell size. Shoei makes a 5mm for the extra large helmet, aptly called XL5. You would currently have an XL9 in your helmet. On a related note, if you find you need thinner or thicker cheek pads (e.g. from a 35 to 31mm) the sizes are universal fit across the shell size spectrum. Apr 25, 2015
Fred J. B:
Yes thanks Ben. I though that Shoei didn't make a 5MM centerpad for the XL since Revzilla doesn't carry it. As a matter of fact a lot of sites that carry the centerpad don't carry the 5mm XL. I only found it on one other site outside of Shoei and I was nervous to order it there because since no one else had it, I wasn't sure how correct their listing was. Needless to say it cost me an arm and a leg on the Shoei North America site. $57 with shipping and I personally think that's ridiculous. This is my third Shoei helmet in an XL and this is the first time I had to spend almost $100 in interior pads to tweak the fit so it not so tight. Not that $100 dollars is the end of the world but it turned a $600 helmet into a $700 helmet.

Terry N:On the Shoei web site you can view and download the owners manual for each of the helmets they sell. I own the GT-Air,XL helmet and, according to the chart in my owners manual, the helmet can be fitted wth Shoei's XL13, XL9, or XL5 center liner.to adjust fit. The helmet has the XL9 as shipped, so you would purchase the XL5 liner if you wanted a looser fit.Apr 25, 2015
Fred, you can order the XL5 center liner from Shoei on their web site. I tried to give you the link to it, but Revzilla doesn't allow me t put links to other web sites in my reply. Just click on the Store link on Shoei's web site and you can easily find it. Frankly, I am surprised Revzilla doesn't offer it.
Apr 30, 2015
Fred J. B:
Yeah thanks. I ordered it from Shoei already. I'm surprised Revzilla doesn't carry it also. It seems like the distributors don't really offer it to a lot of companies since I only found one other site outside of Shoei that sells it.

Vitaliy P asked:Since I bought this helpmet, it was good fit. Now when I go at a faster speeds my helmet moves loosely(going against wind) and thats so annoying. Somebody suggested to me that I should buy new padding, so I am here trying to understad what do I really need. My size of the helpmet is large. I either need size down or thicker pads? I am blode when it comes to sizing numbers. ThanksJul 5, 2015
John K:It sounds to me as though the helmet you bought is too big. A new helmet shouldn't fit "good", it should fit really tightly, but with even pressure all the way around, which means the helmet shape mirrors your head shape. As the helmet padding breaks in, it will change to nicely snug.
You could try getting thicker center and cheek pads, though. In the literature that came with your helmet there is a table that gives suggestions for customizing the fit with pads of different thicknesses. Follow what it suggests.Jul 5, 2015
steven a:Vitalily P, the standared thickness center pad for the XL size is 9mm, the center pad I bought (13mm) is obviously 4mm thicker which makes the helmet tighter, my helmet was slightly loose since new and this tightened it up nicely.Jul 6, 2015
Joel E:I was in between sizes (large and x-large). I went with the x-large. When I went riding, the helmet would move too much with shoulder checks. I purchased one size up in the helmet liner, and now it is perfect.Jul 5, 2015
Duane R:I'm not sure that I understand your question, but I'll give it a shot. I bought a GT-air size X-L which has been the size helmet that I have worn for 20 years. It seemed to be a good fit at first, but after a bit of use it was too loose. I bought the thicker pad over the crown of the helmet to pad it out and it is now a good fit and I am happy with the helmet. It has about 15,000 miles on it. Hope that helps.Jun 17, 2015
Colin S asked:I currently have the XL 9mm Center Pad in my helmet. I'm a long oval head shape and this helmet is causing a little discomfort just about and aft of my forehead. But I feel like the fit is ALMOST there. I like the helmet so much that I'd like to try to make it work if I can. I'm wondering if its because my head is fitting a little too deeply into the helmet with the OEM (9mm) center pad and thus creating a slight pressure point. I'm wondering if getting the 13mm liner will add padding to the top so that my head won't fit so 'deeply' in the helmet and thus eliminate this pressure point. Can anyone comment on getting a thicker liner and whether it has this desired effect? Thank you!May 31, 2014
Glenn P:I am finding that the center pad near the top front of my head is rough and hurts my head leaving a red spot (Shoei Head). Both the original and thinner 5mm replacement liner are not very smooth. I was hoping this would relieve some irritation but it did not. I have the same problem with Shoei helmets putting pressure points on my upper forehead. I have a NEOTEC with a thinner liner and really enjoy that helmet but the GT Air is proving to be a uncomfortable fit. I do not know if a thicker liner would help. I went thinner with no better results.Jun 4, 2014
john s:i think the wanderer is only a color scheme so the center pad should fit. check with shoei to make sure wanderer is just a color option and not a separate helmet and check the owners manual to your helmet for the size.Apr 6, 2015
