Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads
snugs up a big helmet
I bought my Shoei helmet two years ago and have since lost more than 50 lbs. Well my nice shoei helmet no longer fit as it was very loose and had gotten louder as well. Insert these thicker cheek pads(I chose to go to 39 from the stock 35) and the helmet fit tight, almost too tight. A few weeks later and all is well, they broke in and the helmet fits comfortably and is quieter.

The Fit Makes the Helmet
I read the reviews, seems most guys out there have fat cheeks. I have a Shoei Qwest. It fit good with the 35mm cheek pads, until it broke in. I ordered a pair of 39mm. Fits much better. I do believe it also helped with the noise. Installed the chin curtain. I know this cut the noise down. A helmet is only as good as it fits, for comfort, protection, and noise. I don't like paying the extra cash after spending hundreds of dollars for the helmet, But it was worth it.

Should NOT be an additional cost.
The smaller profile 31mm cheek pads fit my chubby cheeks better than do the 35mm pads that come stock.
A Shoei Qwest is an expensive helmet. Cheek pads that fit the size and shape of your cheeks should be included. I can choose the helmet size I want, why can't I choose the cheek pad size?
Is it worth the extra money to have proper fitting padding? Yes. Should it be an option in the first place? Absolutely!

two year old shoei rf1100 refit
shoei rf1100, I ride a lot and to be able to refit my helmet with new interior pads is a big plus. brings the fit back to just like new for a fraction of the cost of a new helmet. extends the wearable life of my helmet out to about 4-5 years before the helmet should be replaced.

Customizing Helmet Fit a Good Idea
Thanks to the help of the Gear Geeks at Revzilla I've learned how to customize helmets for a personal fit. I normally wear an XL helmet size however I can squeeze into an L.....so after input from Revzilla I have ordered cheek pads for the Shoei that have made the comfort/safety/fit of this excellent helmet just about perfect for me personally. With the XL that I did order and these slightly oversize cheek pads inserted as replacements the helmet has gone from really good to great as far as my personal fit zone is concerned.
Most modern helmets have replacement pads available in some variety of thickness. Using these (unfortunately there is an extra cost) allows you to vary the internal dimensions to just about perfection.
If you have a modern helmet that is slightly too large or slightly too small check with Revzilla and try some replacement interior pieces. Highly recommended.

Change it atleast once in 2 years
Guys, these replacement cheek pads and headpads need to replaced / refreshed atleast once in 2 years. It feels great to have a fresh set of pads. The fit of helmet improves tremendously and feels snug. Also the sweaty smelly old pad feel is gone. Go for it - change 'em now!
