Shoei Qwest / RF-1100 Cheek Pads 4.3 5 72 72
Makes my RF1100 fit my skinny head My helmet fit the top of my head well, but it was a little lose arround my face. It now is snug and much quieter. September 8, 2014
A must if you accidentally purchased a size to big of a helmet I accidentally purchased the Shoei Qwest Lg helmet where I should've purchased the Md sized helmet. With this, head checks at highway speeds resulted in my helmet trying to rip my head off. I ordered the went with the size 39 mm and was pleased with the results. Head checks and the issue with the helmet moving about was gone. Would highly recommend. September 2, 2014
Improved fit and reduced noise. I purchased a Shoei Quest helmet a year ago. In the store, I thought the Medium was too tight, so got the Large. Over time, as the cheek pads wore in, I realized that I probably should have gotten the Medium. I replaced the stock pads in the Large with two sizes up and now the helmet fits great and it significantly reduced the noise level in the helmet, particularly on the freeway. Definitely a cheap way to feel like you just got a new helmet. August 12, 2014
Product lives up to what's promised I got what I expected from Shoei...an excellent product! I didn't rate the values because I think those are subjective to the person wearing the helmet. All I can say is I'm very satisfied with fit and comfort. August 4, 2014
Shoei Cheek pads Wanted to move down on size of my cheek pads so I purchased the smallest level for my helmet and the fitment was perfect. They install just as they should. August 4, 2014
Fits Perfect At First But Shrinks A Little After Use I bought a size Medium Shoei RF-1100 Helmet, but unfortunately it fit me a bit loose (Size small helmet was way too tight). I decided to buy the next size up cheek pads and center pad hoping it would solve my problem. It did at first. The helmet felt nice and snug. After a couple of uses it wasn't feeling as snug anymore. It still feels better than the original pads, but not the perfect fit I would want. It will help out if you have a problem with your helmet being a little loose on you. July 21, 2014
made my rf1100 a perfect fit Easily removed stock 35mm cheek pads and replaced with 31mm pads.Made helmet much more comfortable June 23, 2014
Get 31mm if your stock 35mm pads are too big. I have a medium Shoei rf-1100 helmet that comes stock with 35mm pads. I found the stock pads to be too bulky and squished my cheeks to an uncomfortable level. I ordered the 31mm pads and they are much more comfortable but still touch my cheeks. If you need smaller pads, don't bother with the 33mm, get the 31mms. June 23, 2014

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

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

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

A shopper asked: I ORDERED A SIZE LARGE RF-1100, HOWEVER THE HELMET DOESNT SEEM AS SNUG AS IT SHOULD. I WANT IT TO BE MORE SECURE FIT RATHER THEN IT BE LOOSE. WHAT SIZE PADS WOULD YOU RECOMMEND? Jun 28, 2014

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)
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?

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
