Comments about Shoei Qwest Solid Full Face Motorcycle Helmet:
This helmet has Shoei build quality and advance design. I bought the non graphic one. It has almost exactly the features as my friend's Shoei RF1100 but cost almost $150 less. Also when compare to my friend's RF1100, my newer design Qwest is actually slightly quieter and has a little bit better ventilation. It keeps me comfortable during 5 hours of riding. The cheek pads are removable but the top liner can not remove completely on this [$] helmet. I am OK with that. You can still rinse the top liner with the helmet once every year if needed. Overall I think this is one of the best helmets in $300 to $400 price range now.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Very Happy with the QWest
from Friendswood, TX
My second Shoei, excellent build. I am impressed with the light weight. Larger eye opening than prior helmets. Very aerodynamic shape reduces wind noise. I used a measuring tape to determine size. Ordered a L instead of prior helmets being XL. Great fit.Ordering process very easy, got a good discount vs retail stores using my AMA membership number and Bandit Bucks. [...] I couldn't be happier with the purchase!

Great helmet, very comfortable. I have a large head and Shoei is one of the only helmets that fits comfortable. It has a rounder construction and does not dig into forhead like many other full face helmets.
A great helmet
from Middle TN
I really like this helmet. It is well built and fits true to size with no pressure points or hot spots after long term use. I ordered a dark face shield and changing out the face shields could not be easier. The Matte Gray color looks really sharp too.
