Product Details

The Shoei Qwest 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.
   Aerodynamic Shell Design:
  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional rider's feedback
  • Dual layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Five shell sizes and six EPS liner sizes present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most heads
  • Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift, as well as diminishes weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds

   Ventilation System:
  • Upper air intake vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
  • Large upper air intake vent positioned to maximize performance behind wind screens
  • Easy to operate large lower intake / defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
  • The rear/ neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust
  • Breath guard and chin curtain included

   Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+):
  • High performance fiber materials are combined with elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra-lightweight, rigid and resilient

   Interior System:
  • 3-D center pad and multi layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads
  • Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance
  • Eyeglass compatible interior

   Standard Chin Strap clip:
  • Neatly secures chin strap

   CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System:
  • Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring loaded base plate (US. Patent Pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal
  • The CW-1, Three -dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller the CX-1V it replaces
  • Scratch resistant coating
  • Optional CWF-1 two dimensional Pinlock® equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available, and CW-1 Pinlock® prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock® fog free inserts
  • Safety Standards: SNELL-M2010, DOT-218
  • Weight: 3.644 LBS. / 1653 grams approx for a medium solid

      Comments about Shoei Qwest Solid Full Face Motorcycle Helmet:

      I bought this helmet a couple weeks ago and love it so far. My first quality helmet and I notice the difference. Very comfortable, pretty lightweight and looks sweet. I also bought the dark smoke visor to go with it, and found out that it's very simple to change the visors. Took maybe 60 seconds. Can't speak to the durability of the helmet yet, but no bad signs of wear yet. Overall A+.

            Comments about Shoei Qwest Solid Full Face Motorcycle Helmet:

            I finally got around to buying another bike after 5 years without one. I previously had a Shoei 700 and was considering an 1100. After reading the reviews on the Qwest I decided to save the $120 and get the Qwest instead of the 1100. I am glad I did the Qwest is just as good as my 700 was. It is quiet and has good ventilation. It fit a little tight on the cheeks when I first got it but now after wearing it for awhile it feels good. Good helmet for a good price.
