Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads 4.2 5 61 61
Just what I needed My current helmet is the first helmet I ever bought. I bought it in size XL because a size L felt extremely tight. The XL didn't fail any of the tests you're supposed to do, like the 3 fingers in the forehead or trying to pull your helmet forward. However, in gusty winds (such as when you're exiting from behind a hill), the wind felt like it was trying to pull my helmet off. I checked the technical specs and found that the size of my head was at the bottom range of the XL. Some sites say that if you're at the bottom of a range, you might want to go a size down. However, I wanted to try and avoid purchasing a new $500 helmet when my current one is less than a year old (from when I purchased it). I bought these cheek pads to try to make the inside tighter. One side was giving me slight problems (the button was maybe a millimeter off), but after bending here and tugging there, I got it to fit. The feel of the helmet with the new cheek pads is the same (it barely made the inside feel tighter), but the wind no longer tugs at my helmet. Thus, I can put more miles on this helmet.

Not a direct replacement I purchased the 31mm cheek pads to replace the 35mm cheek pads in my Shoei Qwest Overt helmet. I could not get the rear-most portion of the pad inserts to fit into place properly (near the back of the helmet). After a lot of frustration I realized they do not have the same cut-out configuration as the original 35mm pads to fit into a tiny tab towards the back of the helmet. The three snaps per side line up fine, but the rear portion will not stay in place like you would expect. I have to check it every time I pull my helmet off. Basically, not a true direct replacement.

Wish they had thinner cheek pads Don't misunderstand my rating. The pads are exactly as represented, the problem is my head shape. A helmet that fits my crown is too narrow for my wide jaw. I hoped these 31mm pads would be thin enough, but they aren't and I've had to do major surgery on the lower part of the helmet. I may have to go back to an Arai since their cheek pads can be altered (some of the foam removed or shaped) because the cover is removable. Very thin Shoei cheek pads would solve my problem.

Good, but still could use something smaller I ordered size 31 the smallest to replace the 35 that the helmet came with but I still could use something smaller. Hopefully once they break in. January 6, 2014
As new replacement parts I bought a new cheek pad set for my Shoei RF1100 as the originals were way overdue and getting kinda squishy. The replacement parts fit properly (fit is always a concern with non-factory replacements right?), snaps and tabs located as stock. One button is a little weak and pops off once in a while but has not been an issue during wear. Good replacements, work fine, no probs. +1. November 25, 2013
Awesome service as always I replaced the stock cheek pads in my RF1100 with the next size up. Now my helmet fits perfectly. November 11, 2013
Awesome fit! My wife has high check bones and these fit much better than the stock size! November 4, 2013
31mm's ... My 1100 fits my face better now. I'm happy. Nothing more to say. October 30, 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

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

ONH1: 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?
