I had a heck of a time installing these in a new J-Cruise. I almost gave up and sent them and the helmet back. I recently changed the cheek pads on my Shoei Neotec and it was a 2 minute job - easy in, easy out. The problem here is twofold as near as I can tell. The cheek pad plastic insert isn't formed or angled properly and something between the liner and the shell prevents them from sliding in. I struggled putting the original pads back in, but not as much. Just sharing this in case someone else encounters same difficulties.

nice to have a Choise
I chose the J-cruz helmet for several reasons. The ability to get larger or smaller internal pads was a big factor! The pads are well made and fit well. The installation is straight froward and completed in just a couple of minutes.

The Shoei J-Cruise, like most of the Shoei line for me, fits very tight at the jaw.
In order to get a comfortable fit for the face the helmet would be just a tad bit large for the top of the head.
These cheek pads do the trick! Adding a custom fit to the helmet sure makes a difference!

Was good to be able to swap cheek pads and have the helmet grip my face a little tighter. material is same quality as OEM.

Howard B: The pads that come with it fits to sung that why i order the small ones for the better fit ONES COME WITH IT IS 35 MM AND I ORDER 31MMMay 16, 2015
David C: I have always had to order the smaller cheek pads for my Shoei helmets. The standard pads always put too much pressure on my face to be comfortable for an all day ride. I have ridden with my new J-Cruise for a few days and it feels the same as my previous helmets so I have ordered the 31mm pads.Jan 19, 2015
John P: My original cheek pads were a little too snug. Great feature to be able to customize to your size more precisely JohnNov 24, 2014
Tommy T: I chose this item to reduce the side pressure on my cheeks. I already replaced the center head liner with the thinner liner which made the gelmet more comfortable.Sep 11, 2014
Peter T. K asked:Hi all, bought the Shoei J Cruise in 2XL and love it for short and long distance riding. I still find the cheek pads a bit too tight. Do you know what size comes with the 2XL, and is there a narrower pair available? Many thanks, PeterOct 3, 2013
James P:I believe the 2XL comes with 35mm cheek pads. Shoei makes 31mm cheek pads for the J Cruise helmet.
I have the 35mm pads and the 31mm pads. I am getting ready to cut the foam inside the cheek pad cover (after removing the cover). I plan to use brand new Xacto knife blades in whatever Xacto handles work best for me. I am going to make the 35mm pad foam approx. 17.5mm very carefully.
Lots of 11-day Iron Butt Rally participants trim the foam in their full face helmets in order to get a fit that they can wear for 11 straight 16 to 20 hour days.
You can imagine how painful a helmet that does not fit absolutely perfect can get 9 or 10 days into the competitive scavenger hunt style rally.
Larry S:I wear a XL in the J Cruise. Mine also was a bit tight. The XL comes with 13mm and I bought the 11mm. The sizes are for each size helmet so be sure that you get the size for your size helmet exp: XL 13mm or XL 11mm.
Not sure of sizes for the 2Xl but if you take out your cheek pads the size will be on one them.
Hope this helps, Safe and Healthy Riding LarryOct 3, 2013
ron m:I purchased a large helmet and after ninety days I had to purchase larger pads. Once they broke in the helmet had to much play. I was surprised at how much smaller they became after break in.Oct 4, 2013
