Christopher W on Jun 1, 2017
I replace the original cheek pads with one size larger to make the helmet fit my head better, a little more snug. These also made the helmet more quite when riding.

Because I have a wide face and big cheeks.
Shmoo on Dec 30, 2016
great helmet, gt-air. but the tight fit after 4,000 miles sent me to the revzilla site for thinner pads. hoping it helps.
A C on Oct 9, 2016
OEM replacement . perfect fit
Ryan H on Aug 6, 2016
great helmet but after 20,000 miles something had to give
A s on Jul 22, 2016
I'm in between a L and an XL on Shoei helmets, so I picked these thicker cheek pads to bring the interior size down a bit on my XL helmet.
Bodybuilder805 on Jul 16, 2016
The original is not a good fit, this is better.
Claudio113 on Jul 5, 2016
can't beat original factory parts
steven on Jun 19, 2016
The originals are a little to thick.
John M on Jun 16, 2016
I have a three year old helmet, plan to use it for two more years, and need to tweak the fit a bit to restore the original snugness.
John P on May 5, 2016
Need to loosen my cheekpads a bit to help the fit of my helmet.
P E on Feb 16, 2016
Helmet was too tight with the original cheek pads. Needed smaller ones.
Alex M on Feb 15, 2016
Needed slightly smaller fit in the cheeks.
brumms013 on Feb 2, 2016
My Helmet cheekpads are bigger XL (35mm) I moved to a different size 31 mm and now is the fit is excellent.
guillermo l on Nov 9, 2015
needed a little extra room in my helmet and these did the job just right
david p on Nov 7, 2015
The GT Air is known to be a very snug fit. The 31mm pads give me an option to comfort fit if the helmet is just too tight.
R O on Sep 30, 2015
Original was super stinky even after a mild soap bath
Michael B on Sep 16, 2015
Because I try the SM GT Air but it was to small, MD size it was a little bit loose so I am buying the cheek pad and center pad if fits me better
Cheol Ho H on Sep 9, 2015
Needed to make my helmet just a little bit more loose.
Robert F on Aug 25, 2015
Because Shoei sells this helmet with way too thick a cheek pad and it appears everyone is getting tooth aches and headaches from it (I know I am)
Aaron K on Aug 3, 2015
My helmet fit too tight.
Chris S on Jul 11, 2015
The crown fits great, but my Irish face is a little too generous in cheek size for this helmet.
Jim B on Jun 15, 2015
Replacement for current helmet inserts.
H R on Jun 11, 2015
My Shoei GT-Air is just a little tight around my face.
Dion P on Mar 15, 2015
The GT-Air fit tight on my face. These made the fit much better.
Chris H on Mar 12, 2015
This reduced the pressure on my cheek bones. They are slightly thinnerthan the factory size.
Patrick L on Nov 14, 2014
I need an XL helmet, but XXL cheek pads. Otherwise I look like a chipmunk.
Lunchbox601 on Oct 20, 2014
I purchased the GT Air (Large). Used the measure tool on this site. My noggin measured 59-60CM size (exactly like my older AFX). I was warned by some that have purchased Shoei in other models that the helmet will seem like your head is in a vice at first, but will settle in with time. I got the helmet yesterday and my experience was no different. I had to pull off the chin curtain to get it on. The standard 35 MM size was too much. I hope the 31 MM size will improve the break in experience.
Glenn H on Aug 14, 2014
Purchased a large GT-Air and though the helmet is the right size for my head the cheekpads are too tight and squash my face. Other user comments suggested that replacing the cheekpads with thinner ones would lead to a more comfortable fit.
John T on Aug 2, 2014
To make my helmet fit better, duh!
Paula R on Jul 28, 2014
Helmet fits very tight in the cheeks.
Jeffrey N on Jul 18, 2014
"Because the current one size is change (L) and now my helmet like XL..This reason i bought these stuff."
Caner B on Jun 30, 2014
cheek pads that came with the helmet were just too small, these did the trick and the helmet fits perfectly now
Jonathan L on May 11, 2014
my new gt air helmet is a little too tight-- I am between sizes. the crown of the helmet is a good snug fit, but the cheeks are tight and this makes it pretty tough to put on and take off the helmet.
johnniecafe on May 6, 2014
I have fat cheeks
Jason on May 3, 2014
I have extremely wide check bones. I tried a couple rides with my size medium SHOEI GT-AIR helmet and the stock 35mm cheek pads are very uncomfortable. The SHOEI rep at the international motorcycle show warned me I may need these. Should have just bought them outright. Oh well. Thank you RevZilla for being who you are and as honest as possible. Love the video reviews, keep up the good work!
Brian R on Mar 20, 2014
Needed thinner pad
Jim M on Mar 8, 2014
Helmet is too tight in cheeks
Scott R on Feb 7, 2014
To have a spare set
Rob M on Oct 29, 2013
I tried this helmet on and considering the feedback from other users, I opted to order this item in case this product would improve my fit with this helmet, which during trial seemed to really squeeze my cheeks rather stiffly inward. Revzilla allows for a great return program so no harm in having the option. Was hesitant as the price for an accessory was way out of line considering the actual cost of the helmet.
Silvio M on Oct 18, 2013
I was in between the medium and large size, the cheek pads just put a bit too much pressure on my face, these replacements worked great!
Vincent L on Aug 26, 2013
Love my new Shoei GT Air, just is a bit to snug around the cheek pads. I'm hoping this will solve my problem.
Adolfo V on Aug 25, 2013
I'd like to renovate my helmet.
Luis Fernando F on Jul 8, 2017
I replace the original cheek pads with one size larger to make the helmet fit my head better, a little more snug. These also made the helmet more quite when riding.
Harold C on May 8, 2017
My Gt Air seems loud like air coming in from neck. If I got thicker cheek pads would this help close gap. If I look up no noise at all. Riding, looking straight wind noise from bottom. Might be gap in rear of helmet? Any help out there?
A shopper on May 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have the same problem with My GT Air and my RF1200 .. Haven't found a solution yet . Changed the interior to smaller size in rf1200 but no change . Now looking at other helmet Brands.
The online photos on this cheek pad DO NOT show the red emergency cheek pad release feature on the standard pad for the GT-Air. Do these pads from revzilla come with red cheek pad release? Thank you.
A C on Feb 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the replacement pads have the red emergency release. Other than the thickness these are identical to the pads that come with the helmet
I have the Shoei GT AIR. The stock cheek pads are too tight. I'm not sure on which size to select. I read some reviews and It seems that the 31mm 2XL size is the way to go. Please help. I am having trouble understanding the size chart....31mm 2XL means a smaller cheek pad?
ROD N on Mar 18, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I went with the 31mm which means a smaller cheek pad, it's the thickness if the pad that is measure.
I tried on the GT Air XL helmet and felt that the cheek pads were tight enough to make me into a fish face. The 2XL is on the bigger size and does not fit as snug. I'm assuming from reading a lot of replies here that even if I buy the XL, the 31mm cheek pads labeled "2XL" will still fit in the XL but give less pressure on my cheeks?
Todd B on Mar 8, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I had the same problem with my helmet. My GT air in Medium the cheek pads were way to tight. Tried the Large GT Air and the helmet was to loose. Almost went with a totally different helmet. Instead i purchased the 31mm cheek pads. Best thing i ever bought. The GT air in Medium with 31mm cheek pads fits perfect. I love my helmet.
I have 35mm cheek pads , what size should I get for a tighter fit ?
NinjaFrank on Sep 3, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The larger the number increases the thickness; make it tighter. ie the smaller the number gives you more room
Hi, it's possible in GT-Air L, change interrior in size M?
A shopper on Jun 17, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I did just the opposite I went from L to XL and I am satisfied.
Looking at the various cheek pad sizes, it seems based on the OEM sizing that this helmet has 4 shell sizes and not 3 - what gives? It looks like XS-S, M, L, and XL-2XL share shell sizes. Am I wrong? I tried a helmet from a friend which is Medium. It was a tad loose. He wore it for 700 miles and I am considering buying his helmet and changing the cheek pads. Thanks for the advise!
Daniel K on Nov 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I purchased a new Shoei GT-Air and found it too tight. Ordered the cheek pads for the looser fit and it worked out great for me.

jim k
does anyone know what size the pads are that come with the helmet off the shelf?
Andrew J on Jul 19, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The medium helmet came with 35mm cheek pads.
my snap in for my gt air helmet looks different from the picture, one is straight in drop to lock and the other side you have to push in then slide to lock it. are the snap ins different from the picture?
westley w on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: That might just be a "similar" picture as the ones I got fit perfectly. I didn't even notice that when I ordered.
