Shoei Neotec Cheekpads
The 31mm pads made all the difference in comfort.
The 31mm pads to replace the 35mm that came stock with my Shoei Neotec made a huge difference in comfort. Really noticeable when on an all day ride.
My wishful thinking is that Shoei would include both sizes with the helmet purchase. It's a pricy helmet to begin with, and having the cheek pad size options right out of the box would raise my appreciation level considerably.

If you have a Shoei helmet and a fat face like me, then you can get less padded cheekpads and have a more comfortable helmet to protect your noggin. These cost more than they probably should, but if they make your $600 helmet fit better then it's money well spent.

Must have for big cheeks
Based on my head measurement, a large was the right size in a Shoei Neotec. But when I I tried the helmet on for the first time, it was literally painful to pull it on. Bought the smaller cheekpads, and my fat face is still a little smushed, but entirely bearable now. I think once they break in a bit, the fit will be even better. Only wish you could choose between the sizes before buying, or both were included. Bummer to pay more after shelling out for a $600 helmet

Solved the problem
The Neotech was really squeezing my cheeks but these smaller cheek pads solved the problem. And, as usual, RevZilla shipped them on time.

Tuning The Fit
I like to make sure my helmets fit "just right" which for me usually means swapping out the cheek pads for ones a tad thicker. This is easily done on the Shoei helmets and takes just a few seconds. It's nice to be able to customize the fit of your helmet for long distance comfort and safety so affordably.

Fixed the Cheek Pressure
The stock cheek pads were too tight for me. Buying the 31mm pads fixed the problem. My Noetec fits perfect now. Highly recommend. Revzilla shipping service is fantastic, truly fantastic.

Saved my Neotec from Craig's List
I ordered my Neotec from my dealer when I purchased my CB1100 after trying on other Shoei helmets. I thought the XL fit best so that is the size I ordered. Helmet fit great until it broke-in. After two months, the helmet sat low on my forehead and cheek pads were a bit loose. I put the helmet on Craig's list for a while, but finally decided to take a chance and spend another $80+ on new, larger pads, and the fit is great. The additional $$ on top of an already expensive lid was money well spent. It saved me the hassle of Craig's List. And the expense of another helmet.

31mm pads for big head
31mm pads make my Shoei Neotec fit my square head very well. Stock 35mm's were way too tight on my cheeks.
