Shoei GT-Air Cheek Pads
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.

Great for getting the fit just right
My new helmet was really tight and I thought it would improve with use, no, it was too tight. Fortunately Shoei sells the cheekpads separately and now my helmet is my favorite. However I would like them to be cheaper, included with the helmet on purchase or to have the option to select cheekpads when buying the helmet.

Expensive but comfortable helmet that fits me better because of the smaller cheek pads I I stalled
The pads were easy to install. They made the helmet fit my face better. I could not have worn it for long distances without the new smaller cheek pads.

Should not incude any cheek pads so you can buy what you need.
I don;t thik these are small enogh. They should also not include any cheek pads in the helmet. After spending $600 I should not have to spend $50 more to make it fit and then have an extra set of worthless cheek pads afterwords. This is NOT Revzillas fault, so don't get me wrong, I think Shoei should chane how they sell these combos.

Cheekpads at 3x normal cost!
The Shoei GT Air helmet is awesome, unfortunately it comes with cheek pads made for skeletons and severely anemic riders. These thinner cheek pads make the helmet fit much better, and make removing and putting the helmet on much easier, especially since now you don't need vaseline and a shoehorn to do it. I'd recommend these to anyone, anyone who is willing to spend the outrageous amount on just cheek pads that is.

Does the job, but adds extra expense
My advice for sizing helmets is to take the cheek pads out and find the shell that fits your noggin first, because it is probably smaller than you think. Once you have the shell size right, then order cheek pads to fit your face. It adds extra expense to an already spendy helmet, but it has made a comfortable helmet out of a jaw-crushing headache-on-wheels.
In this case I went with a Large helmet (GT Air), and had to buy the 31mm check pads (the thinnest available) to get a good fit.

Fits perfect in my Shoei GT Air helmet. These smaller sized cheek pads gave this helmet a completely different feel, which created the perfect comfort for my big head.

Made it fit
I bought a XL demo and it made me fill like my head was in a vise, between these and the new center pad it fits perfectly.
