Product Details

The Shoei Qwest Prestige Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, optimizing fit for comfort and protection and lowering noise levels to bring a new level of comfort to touring helmets. Featuring a slightly round oval internal shape, the Qwest helmet is manufactured with 4 individual shell sizes to keep the helmet as low-profile as possible. The smaller the helmet shell, the lighter the helmet weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet also uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield by pulling the shield back to contact the opening seal evenly. The Qwest also touts an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you.

My new helmet

By JFRA

from Clyde, Texas

Comments about Shoei Qwest Prestige Full Face Motorcycle Helmet:

Shoei helmets are very well finished and very functional. Without the removable cheek protection pads this helmet is extremely comfortable, however the pads are too tight on my cheek area. Maybe with time they will relax and be more comfortable, as the helmet breaks in. The ventilation system is good, and the optional breath guard helps prevent the visor from fogging better than most other helmets. This helmet is also quieter than any other I have worn.

    Comments about Shoei Qwest Prestige Full Face Motorcycle Helmet:

    I have rode with Bell RS-series, Scorpion EXO-series helmets, replaced my Akuma Stealth recently with the Qwest Prestige... Forts out of the carton, quality, care and precision have been taken to preserve a quality helmet.

    As I saw in the production of the Qwest Helmets, meticulous care to every detail down to the graphics, and the protective cover it arrives with.

    The helmet itself is lightweight, fits snug and for those like me who wear glasses, you can put your glasses on quickly without having to turn your head to one side then the other.

    This is indeed one "Sick" lid! The Qwest Prestige compliments the patriotic fairings my bike is adorned with.

    Can't wait to ride home from my office sporting my new lid... the bike turns heads, the Qwest Prestige is the icing on the cake!
