Shoei GT-Air Cheek Pads
Stock pads were too tight
I bought these as replacements for the originals in my GT-Air helmet. I know the helmet is supposed to be tight, but geez...My cheeks were not happy with the originals. I do shave my head, so maybe if I had hair I'd be in the next size up and my cheeks would be fine.
Anyway, these broke in in about a week and fit great now.

You're gonna need them
Buy these if you fit in a medium helmet, but that tight neck roll and super-thick pads are smashing your face. I think these should be offered as a swap at the time of purchase since we're spending a lot on this helmet. I'm happy I bought them. They're a little more comfortable than the stock medium pads, which are the 35mm ones as opposed to these 31mm ones.
Just get them.

Cheek pads...an expensive mod
I ordered both the cheek pads and the skull liner in a smaller size to see if they'd make my Shoei J-Cruise fit better. They helped but it still seems to fit fairly tight so I'm not sure if it was worth a hundred bucks; the jury's still out on whether or not there's enough difference to justify the expense. In conclusion I really like Shoei helmets but next time I'll probably order a size large instead of a medium. Probably my bad for not exchanging the lid when I first received it.

Great replacement pads
I wear a medium size Shoei GT Air helmet but the standard cheek pads that came with the helmut where pretty tight and I needed some smaller ones. I ordered the XL 31mm ones (seams counterintuitive) to replace the stock ones. Now the fit is perfect!! Really made a big difference for me. A bit expensive for what it is, but the much improved comfort is well worth it.

The cure for too tight cheek pads.
Not too much to say. They are about 4mm smaller on each side and they solve the problem of cheek pads that are so tight they are uncomfortable.

Improved fit of helmet
Easy to install. Relieved the extreme tightness of the stock pads on my cheek bones. Well worth the cost for a much improved fit.

Shoei GT Air Smaller Cheek Pads
They made a definite improvement but not quite as much as had hoped for and they are pretty expensive. Overall, I'm glad I did it.
