Shoei GT-Air Cheek Pads
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.

Helps make the helmet a bit less tight on the cheeks.
Very simple and easy to put in. Well built. Glad Revzilla keeps them in stock.

Shoei Cheek Pads
The cheek pads that came in my Shoei GT Air helmet, size XL, were a little too tight for me so I went to the smaller size pads and the helmet fits perfectly. The pads are easy to remove and install so it only took a couple minutes to change out. The pads are a bit expensive but they are a quality piece.

shoei gt air cheek and center pads
i fell between sizes so I went with the smaller size helmet- a medium gt air. after wearing it for a few days I decided it was too tight for comfort. the optional cheek and center pads made it fit a lot better- it's stll pretty snug, but is still better than a helmet that is too loose.
