Bell Helmets Cheek Pads For Vortex Helmets
- Riders will sometimes need to change the cheek pads that come installed in their helmets. Some people need a little more or less space, while others simply need to install a fresh set of pads for better comfort (and smell)
- The pads both come out and can be installed quite easily
- Use the chart below to figure out what size cheek pad you currently have based on your helmet size, and then pick a replacement set based on your need
Use this table to determine what cheek pad size you currently have:
|Helmet Size||Cheek Pad Size||Shell Size|
You can buy the same thickness of cheek pad if you like the fit of your helmet and just need a replacement set. Or you can buy a different thickness cheek pad to adjust fit as long as you buy a pad to fit the same shell size. The cheek pads for the XS, Small, Medium and Large helmets are interchangeable since those four sizes share the medium helmet shell size. Likewise, the cheek pads for the XL and XXL helmets are interchangeable since they all share an XXL shell size. You also have at least one optional size cheek pad for each shell size, so customizing the fit of your helmet shouldn’t be a problem.
Changing cheek pads to change the helmet fit: To get MORE room in your helmet, you need to buy a THINNER cheek pad. To get a TIGHTER fit, you need to buy a THICKER cheek pad. Example: If you have a size Large Vortex helmet, you have cheek pads that are 45mm thick. If the helmet is too loose on you, a 50mm pad would snug up the fit on your cheeks. If it’s too tight, a 40 mm pad would give you a little more room.
