Shoei Qwest Passage Helmet

The Shoei Qwest Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, decreasing noise and optimizing fit, comfort and protection 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 face shield  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. Snell M2010 and DOT ratings means the Qwest is no compromise when it comes to safety.

Aerodynamic Shell Design:

  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders
  • Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes
  • 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 intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions
  • Easy to operate large lower intake vent
  • Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation
  • Rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust
  • Breath guard and chin curtain are included

Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+):

  • High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient


  • 3D 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
  • Spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal
  • Scratch-resistant coating 
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A and B rays
  • Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (sold separately)
  • Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately)
  • The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces 
  • A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow 

Additional Features:

  • Construction: AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber)
  • Weight: 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium)
  • Standards: Snell-M2010, DOT

Please Note:  The vents on the Brilliant Yellow helmet are black, not yellow as shown in product photo.

Note: Due to manufacturer restrictions, the Qwest Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

Shoei Qwest Passage Helmet 4.6 5 482 482
the right choice I always curious what's the different between bands of helmets. Found a long crack on my RPS-10 jaw foam (I didn't go down or dropped the helmet), I decided to take everything apart because this helmet is a gone anyway. I pulled out the jaw foam, saw electrical tapes everywhere, and blocks most of of the vents. That explained there was so minimum airflow when riding. I decided to shop for better brand and looked into Shoei and Arai. Qwest is my option because it's slightly round and fit my head better than RF-1200. Two speakers pockets is a good feature, because I have a Sena's clone waiting to be installed. Wiring the headset couldn't hide all the wires due to the head pad was not a removable. I didn't care, it's inside the helmet, who could see that anyway. Today is my first ride, airflow, the view, the natural anti-fog system, the comfort of feeling the speakers not squeezing my head, all just play so well and rock solid. I thought my RPS-10 was top, the Qwest is. Not to mention the Hi-Vis color perfectly match my Hi-Vis jacket. Revzilla's staff was awesome, quickly price matched my helmet. Not to mention, Anthony's video did a good job in all the breakdown videos. Good to do business with you, Revzilla. July 22, 2015
Excellent Helmet I bought the helmet after fitting at the retail store. The salesman was excellent, with great knowledge of the helmets and good advice on proper fitting. This helmet is a great fit for me, and the vision is excellent--I thought my old helmet had clear vision, this one is much better. Also bought a replacement tinted visor which I easily installed and it cuts sun glare without reducing vision clarity. A GREAT helmet at a great price, saved me $$ over what I had been considering. THANKS! June 22, 2015
A solid helmet with beautiful design I had my eye on this helmet ever since it was on clearance here and was just waiting to save up the extra money to purchase it. I had an HJC CL-17 and wanted an upgrade, and also was giving my other helmet to my girlfriend so she could join me on my rides. The pros: - The design is amazing on this helmet. The pictures do it no justice. - With a light design, longer rides are less strain on the neck and it is overall more comfortable to wear. - Ventilation is good when moving (I have the CW-1 face shield that I purchased and haven't used the stock one based on previous reviews regarding fogging). A little fog when stopped at times but immediately goes away when you start to move again. - Fitment is excellent for a regular oval shaped head in my opinion. - A mesh wind protector is included. - Very simple to remove and install the face shield. - Many detents in the face shield allow different positions for various types of riding. The cons: - The head liner is not removable so wiring my Sena 3s was a pain. For this price point that should definitely be a feature. There are not many bad things to say about this helmet. Again, I purchased a separate face shield so I cannot comment on the stock face shield and it's fogging issues that other reviews have stated. Lastly, 'Murica - June 29, 2015
Amazing performance Great helmet. You get what you pay for, works well in heat/cold. Lots of lens options. Ability to open the lens at any angle, also can add a bluetooth system without issue. June 27, 2015
Beautiful helmet. Fits perfectly. Love this helmet. Great looking helmet with an exceptional fit. Great price for a Shoei. Good for novice or experienced riders. June 23, 2015
Overall a great helmet I upgraded from a different brand's hi-viz helmet to this Qwest Overt. Things I like: 1. The brand name. 2. It is very comfortable and light. 3. It looks great with my hi-viz Tour Master Sonora Air Jacket. 4. I think the paint quality on the Shoei is very good. The paint on the competitor's helmet started to flake off after a few months but they said I'd been dropping the helmet (not!). Funny that another brand new competitor's helmet still on the shelf at the local bike shop where I bought my helmet had bubbles in the paint ready to flake off. 5. The shield stays firmly in place when I open it a notch or two. A few things I'm not too crazy about: 1. The Qwest shield fogs up pretty easily, enough so that at any temperature under about 60F I have to leave the shield open a bit. 2. The snap to hold the excess chin strap can be a bit of a pain. It always takes me a bit of fussing around to get the strap snapped. 3. Even with all the vents open the air flow feels pretty marginal. 4. The top interior padding leaves three deeps furrows in my hair at the top of my head by the time I get to work, which leads to a bit of wise-guy comments from some of my colleagues. Of course none of them wear a helmet so I can deal with the teasing. That's about it for the cons. Overall I'm glad I bought this helmet. June 16, 2015
Satisfied Overall, I'm satisfied with this helmet. It is my first one though, so I don't have much to compare it to. it is comfortable and I can fit my glasses comfortably under the face shield. I do get a whistling sound in the helmet and I find that the face shield fogs up frequently. The face shields are very easy to change out when switching from tinted to clear. The helmet is fairly lightweight and is pretty quiet (although my bike is not a very loud one to begin with). June 15, 2015
Best helmet I have ever used. I love this helmet. Add in Uclear 200 and it is the best I have ever worn. This is the second Shoei Qwest helmet that i have purchased, and the design... MERICA!!! Only fault I can think of it not including a wiper to get rid of the bugs that miss my windscreen... June 10, 2015

A shopper asked: how would this helmet be in a 3/4 tuck position? Aug 8, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
Reply to Randy L Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
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: 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.

Summer Y asked: I just got this helmet in the mail [pretty quickly I might add]. When I measure my head I get 21.5, and small adult hats are too big on me..so I went with the small. It squishes my cheeks, but I'm pretty sure it fits everywhere else. When I move my head it doesn't jiggle.

Am I able to replace the cheek pads to get some thinner ones?

Also, my glasses are so hard to get on. They are plastic and not wire frames [seems a lot of ppl wear those when riding]. Will the pad stretch out a little so eventually my glasses are easier to put on?

I'm a new rider so pretty clueless. Thanks!
