Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads 4.3 5 85 85
Fit perfectly Changed cheek pads fits perfect now, easy to replace October 19, 2015
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. September 9, 2015
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. June 16, 2015
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! May 11, 2015
OK The product supplied my expectation and decided my helmet adjustment problem. May 11, 2015
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. May 4, 2015
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. April 13, 2015
OEM Shoei product Great quality and price, not to mention customer care. Feels like a new helmet. Thanks a lot Revzilla!!! April 10, 2015

John J: Wanted to improve slight the fit of my RF-1100, and these did the trick. Jun 21, 2014
Wilson L: #35 pads in helmet were WAY TOO TIGHT for my jaw shape. After using the #33 set for over 3 months, they are tolerable for street riding (really a good track helmet fit right now), but still push my cheeks between my teeth when I open my mouth at all with helmet on. I might order the #31 set (for XL and larger), and see if they are more comfortable for long-distance riding. All it takes is money, right? Jun 14, 2014
doug h: I had purchased a Shoei Quest Helmet. Although the helmets shell fit me properly, the standard 35mm cheek pads caused my inner cheek to squeeze between my teeth slightly when I opened my jaw. Also, the tight fit was giving me "fish lips" for lack of a better description. I asked Shoei what size pad they would recommend. They replied with a 31mm cheek pad based on my described problem. Jun 9, 2014
Daniel H: My Shoei Qwest size Large fit great everywherebut squeezed the Dickens out of my cheeks. I'm downsizing from the 35mm to the 31mm pad, and will see if they help. Jun 7, 2014

Luis B: Need thinner pads Apr 30, 2014
Richard C: 35 MM stock cheek pads too snug! Apr 28, 2014
JAIME A: I purchased a fairly new Shoei RF-1100 in a size Medium. Technically, I should be a Small since I wear a size 7 hat, but I tried out a couple of Small sized RF-1100 helmets and they were just too uncomfortably tight on my head. Now the Medium is just a little loose, specially towards the top of my head. So I purchased the next size up cheek pads (37mm) and the thickest center pad that is offered (13mm). Hopefully this solves my problem. Apr 25, 2014
Timothy T: Original cheek pads were 35mm and too tight. I hope that the 31mm size works for me ! Apr 24, 2014
Melissa C: Because I lost 80 pounds and my my face isn't as fat...I think I need small helmets now :( Apr 17, 2014

Michael S: The stock cheek pads are a little to tight so I got slightly thinner cheek pads to fix this. Sep 19, 2013
Erasto I: Shoei doesn't give an option to select different size cheek pads. That's not good , I have to spend more money to buy these...revzilla you guys rock!!! Sep 12, 2013
William G: Need a bit smaller cheek pads Aug 30, 2013
Minh H: The last one you guys recomended was still too large, and since I used it on a test run, I can't return or exchange it. Aug 23, 2013
A shopper asked: Just purchased a medium SHOEI QUEST helmet with standard 35mm cheek pads which are too tight for the shape of my face. There are 33 and 31mm pads listed but there are no instructions to determine which would provide the best fit. any advice would be appreciated. Jun 15, 2011

Mikeyforgets: That's a tough question & I haven't found any useful information from Shoei to help. What I did was quickly go through the user reviews & found most people went with the 31mm cheek-pads & were happy. This was also my solution.

If it's an extremely tight fit I would go for the 31mm. If you're feeling just a tiny bit of pressure & wish it were just a little bit less try the 33mm.

I'm sorry I couldn't come up with anything better than that.

tminculvercity: Not exactly technical advice, but I'm 48 and not in the same shape I was in high school. I went down to the 31 mm cheekpads with my RF 1100. Love them. I'm not drooling now from my mouth being squeezed open and the helmet is still snug. And I figure if they start to feel loose in time, I can just put the 35 mm originals back in. Hope this helps.

Flogger: There really isn't any way sure-fire way to find out which would fit best without wingin' it. However, I had the same problem with a size LG and found that the 33mm pads were much better. With that said, the 31mm pads would probably be even more comfortable, but not so much so to send the 33s back. Just have to pick one and see how they fit. Dec 9, 2011

Estano87: I would highly recommend the 31mm if your head is slightly smaller than normal like mine. I too struggled with the 31mm and 33mm decision. I chose the 31mm and I'm glad I did. It seems I made the right choice. If it doesn't fit, you should be able to send them back to Revzilla and get the slightly larger 33mm - but try the 31mm first. May 9, 2012

tomZilla: Unfortunately there are no specific instructions on the specific fit on cheekpads. Depending on how tight the stock 35mm cheekpads you can figure if you need to step down to the 33mm to 31mm cheekpads. Please note that new cheekpads do break in about 15%-20% so please take that into consideration when determining a size. Jun 16, 2011

NCdon: I have the SHOEI RF-1100 in XL. I just replaced the 35mm with the 31mm. 4mm is about 15 hundredths of an inch which is incredibly small. I'm surprised they make a 33 in between the two. I think if the 35 is tight enough to bother you after break-in, go all the way to a 31mm. Apr 23, 2012

Adam M: If the helmet is not snug you should switch to a smaller size helmet. As the RF-1100 line uses 5 shell sizes you may also benefit from a lighter, small profile by downsizing as well as it being a safer fit. Jul 1, 2014

Steven B: If it is too loose around the cheeks, then the 37mm pads worked great for me. If it is too loose around the forehead area, then you might need to go with a medium sized helmet. Jul 1, 2014

Ben D asked: I experience a *LOT* of wind noise when wearing my RF-1100 (Size L) . I find that most of the noise comes from directly under my ear; if I place a finger on that spot and push the pad toward my jawbone/neck or shrug my shoulders up to the helmet, almost all of the noise cuts out. I even use a Proline Windjammer to try and reduce the noise, but it only helps marginally. The forward portion of the cheeks isn't as tight as it could be as well.

Would a thicker cheek pad help to alleviate this?

R. Verne B: Are you using the chin screen? My helmet came with one and it helps keep noise down, although it does worsen the fogging problem. As to the cheek pads, I'd use the thickest ones I could without sacrificing comfort. Overall, I've found the helmet to be comfortable and relatively quiet, although I do always wear earplugs. It's quieter than my Arai was anyway. I guess what I'm sayig is, if the fit is right you shouldn't have a high noise level. Hope that helps. Nov 15, 2013

Morris R: I don't think the thicker cheek pads will make any difference. I bought thinner pads because for me the standard pads were way to tight. There was no difference in noise between the standard pads and the thinner pads I bought so i don't think you will see an improvement. The RF-1100 is a bit noisy whether I had the tight pads in or the new ones. The only difference I notice is it is a bit quieter with all the vents closed. Nov 14, 2013

Steven B: I put the next size larger pads in mine and would estimate a 40%~50% reduction in wind noise. Nov 14, 2013

A shopper asked: The Helmet goes on fairly snug, but taking it off feels like my ears are going to rip off. Would smaller cheek pads provide more room around the neck padding area? Other suggestions? May 22, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: Cheekpads play a little roll in ripping your ears off. The majority of that pressure is derived from the neck roll and the actual opening of the shell. When donning and doffing the helmet grab both sides of the chin strap and pull them apart. May 25, 2012
Reply to RevZilla Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ole H: Yes cheek pads should help. I think teh 35mm are stock & you can get either 33's or 31's to replace the stock pads.
Also might want to double check the fit & size, make sure its right for you before you spend +$30.00 on new pads?

Ole H: The original should be a 35. Next size to tighten would be a 37 or a 41 from Shoei. Revzilla also shows an aftermarket in 39. I think the size is in mm's so it's kind of trial & error to get the right fit, depending on how loose the stock pads are. Hope this helps. Jun 12, 2014
Reply to Ole Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Morris R: I had the opposite problem-needed to buy smaller than OEM pads. I picked two sizes thinner to make up for it. Your OEM looks to be 35MM from the chart. If was going larger, I'd pick something more than a 2MM increase and go with the 41MM. Jun 14, 2014
