Shoei Qwest Passage Helmet 4.9 5 14 14
great helmet! good looking helmet and the matte finish stands out, only downside to it is I find cleaning a matte finish helmet is a bit more tough then a glossy finish, other then that, it looks good, fits great and has an easy venting system on all sides to manage with your gloves on even while on the move. March 8, 2014
Great Helmet This is the first Shoei helmet I have owned and so far I love it. It is much more comfortable and quiet than my previous HJC. When I first received the helmet there was a loud whistling noise coming from the face shield just like others had noticed, but I just loosened the two screws on each of the base plates and pushed the plates back as far as they would go and retightened the screws, whistling noise eliminated!! Now it is whisper quiet, great helmet! January 21, 2014
My first helmet and I'm glad I chose this one This is my first helmet and after *a lot* of research I selected the Shoei Qwest Passage. I actually tried on several helmets at a local retailer just to see what helmet line seemed to fit my head best, and I would highly recommend this as I found some of the other lines didn't seem to be as comfortable for me as this. What sold me on this helmet (besides the fit) was the wide field of vision. I would have really liked to have a PinLock visor included, but it is available as an option. I've been very happy with this helmet and would recommend it. October 29, 2013
Great Helmet! I received my Qwest helmet about a month ago and it just continues to get more and more comfortable. I originally owned the rf-1000, which I had for 5 years+. After that I strayed away Shoei and went through several other brands and was miserable the whole time. It was like a dream putting this on for the first time. A highly stylish, matte black dream. My only complaint is that there is a small whistle when you look left or right at speed. (checking for cars). August 22, 2013
Great helmet for the price I havent had a whole lot of experiences with other helmets. But the one other full face helmet I had was a KBC and it just felt cheap wearing it and looking at it. My Shoei Qwest Passage feels like my head is going to be safe whenever I wear it. I love the quick release face shield so I can quickly switch between clear and smoked shields. Ventilation is good. All in all, I would definitely make another shoei helmet my next when the time comes. August 11, 2013
Great Helmet! Quiet, good airflow, great visibility! Looks awesome, and comfortable.The sizing is right on; if you're on the cusp go for the smaller size, it will break in nicely. June 11, 2013
Love the helmet This is my first full-face helmet so I don’t have much to compare to (other than a ¾ open face helmet from Harley). Love the styling and fit of this helmet. I read many reviews that these helmets are a bit too tight – the cheek pads are supposed to be snug! Avoid going to a larger helmet size unless the actual head portion is too tight. You don’t want the helmet flying off your head in the event of an accident. The cheek padding breaks in over time or you could buy smaller padding. I also love that the face shield stays open in various positions rather than just open or closed. The field of view is great and the helmet is very quiet – it even greatly muffles the sound of my very loud Harley. The other huge plus is that it is very light and is Snell 2010 rated. Very well made helmet. My one main complaint is the fogging. I actually ride a lot with the face shield cracked a little – which is why I like the fact that the helmet will stay open in various positions. I am a bit disappointed that this helmet does not come pin lock ready. I will be purchasing the pin lock shield and lens. But for $450, I would expect it to at least come pinlock ready. But again, overall, great helmet. Also - loved the superfast shipping from RevZilla! The review videos are also very helpful! October 27, 2012
Fantastic! I love everything about it. Extremely comfortable and looks really bad a*s (with a gold visor). My only issue with it was that the visor was not set up probably which caused it to whistle like crazy and had to 'fiddle' with the screws on the mechanism till I got it right. A fairly easy process but be careful you don't thread the screws :). I get complements all the time - the finish is top class and it's so comfortable you forget it's on. Go for it. September 3, 2012

Randy L C: I'm not sure if you are concerned about ventilation, aerodynamics or what??? The helmet is reasonably quiet..vents pretty well and seems pretty stable when making head checks at speed, so I would think it would be fine in a 3/4 tuck position. Hope this helps. Aug 10, 2013

Rodolfo M: Because It's based on the RF-1100 it will do fine, but its designed for upright riding so the field of vision and the venting might not be the best. Aug 8, 2013

Dena J: It is fine but if you wanna stay in the 3/4 for a long time or go deeper then you need the RF series. Dec 8, 2013

A shopper asked: Color of Qwest Passage? Does it match the Harley Davidson orange? specifically the Black Denim Night rod special ? May 8, 2012

RevZilla: Although the pictures may appear to give this helmet an orangish hue (mostly due to lighting of the photograph, varying computer screen color settings, etc.), the actual accent color is red. May 15, 2012

groc: I have a Harley Iron 883 in Black Denim (no orange), but I got the Quest Passage with the silver striping. The Denim black goes awesome. I think it'll look great with the organge too. Oct 27, 2012

A shopper asked: Looking at the Shoei Qwest and the Bell RS-1. Do they fit the same and are they similar in quality? Jan 14, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
nobie381: Mike,
I can't speak to the fit of the Bell helmets but in reviewing it quickly the Bell you are looking at was designed more for a sport rider which means the vents and aerodynamics work better for a more forward riding position. The Qwest is designed for a more upright riding position. This matters for optimal ventilation etc.

Joel P: The Bell RS-1 has a narrower fit than the Qwest and is a little more of an aggressively designed helmet intended for sport riding. Both are well-built helmets but Shoei, in general, will be of better quality than Bell. If you have any other or more specific questions, please e-mail us at cs@revzilla.com or call us at 877-792-9455. Jan 31, 2012
