Shoei Qwest Airfoil Helmet 4.6 5 196 196
A Gold Wing rider's perspective I wanted to love this helmet! It is well made and well-designed. I wore a Shoei J-Wing (3/4 helmet) for many years and loved the helmet. My brother tried to convince me to upgrade to a full-face helmet for more protection, so I tried the Quest. I ride a Gold Wing, which provides excellent wind protection with its fairing and windscreen. I found the Quest ventilation to be totally inefficient behind such a windscreen, causing the helmet to be too hot for temps above 75 degrees. The faceshield would fog up whenever I had it closed, which made it totally useless in the rain. So now I have gone to an Arai 3/4 helmet, sold the Quest on Ebay, and am comfortable once again! I'm not knocking the Quest.... It's just not right for you GoldWingers! October 14, 2012
Great Starting Helmet This helmet is great. I tried on all the other major brand helmets, this thing was tight and gave me a headache for the first few hours (mind you, it was my very first helmet and i hate having things on my head) So i knew that was a big contributing factor. Surely enough after taking it off/on for a good few hours it fit perfectly snug, no headaches anymore or anything. The airflow is fantastic, Im extremely impressed with the airflow in this helmet for simply having 3intakes. Next helmet will either be the rf100 or bell rs1. October 4, 2012
Expected much more from this brand... 1. Loud high pitch noise in the helmet when speed reaches about 60 km/h - tried everything, cannot get rid of it. 2. Faceshield is fogging consistently - unless you keep it open which adds to the noise level. Overall the helmet is very comfortable, replacing shield to tinted one is so much easier that on my old helmet (Scorpion Exo 700), but this high pitch noise and fogging is definitely two huge issues - I didn't have any of these problems with my old helmet. Somewhat disappointed in my purchase. October 2, 2012
Good helmet for the money I was looking for the quietest helmet I could find, for a sport touring bike. This new Qwest is quieter than my old Arai, but still not as quiet as I hoped. I really wanted to buy the new Schuberth S2, but I was right between a L and XL in their sizes. After a 1600 miles to/from the east coast, I can honestly say this Qwest is comfortable. The anti-fogging isn't as good as the Arai, but the more aerodynamic vents are more quieter, with less whistling. The size is definitely a more round oval, especially lower in the helmet. I ordered and installed the larger cheek pads to snug up the fit, but overall a good fit for my 59.5cm head. I'm not crazy about the cheek pad design. There is a long plastic trim piece on each, that wraps almost 1/3 the way around the helmet, between the shell and the inner liner. Fine, unless you are trying to get the wires for a helmet communicator to fit in. October 2, 2012
Best value for money and awesome quality Bought an XL size and fits perfectly and It's also very light. I'm very happy with the product. October 1, 2012
Premum helmet at reasonable price I've just started riding again after 30+years and was looking for a high quality helmet. I'm pleased with the fit and weight but a little surprised at the noise level. I've only used worn it in 85'F conditions so I really can't comment on airflow/cooling. September 30, 2012
Awesome graphics and finish Purchased this helmet for my fiance and it blows my helmet (HJC) away. Fit, finish and protective features are over the top. She loves the comfort and graphics. Looking forward to many rides with it. I'm seriously considering a SHOEI for myself. September 24, 2012
Overall really great Love my new helmet. Best price I could find and the fit is perfect. Seems loud but I don't have much to compare to and actually bought this Qwest helmet because reviews stated it was the quietest out there. No regrets. September 19, 2012
