Easier to slip on!
With the original 20mm pads I felt overly packed in. I have a feeling this Summer will be hot and my Gen 1 Matte Black Retro Lifer is going to be a heat magnet. I got the cheek pads and at first I thought they wouldn't fit. You have to examine how the original ones are put in. The pads kind of lay packed on the edge, but the buttons really hold the cheek pad to the helmet. So go ahead and mash them into the sockets. Just make sure you got the right cheek pads to match your helmet Generation.
