Shoei Qwest Ascend Helmet - Size MD Only Videos

Shoei Qwest Ascend Helmet

The Shoei Qwest Motorcycle 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 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

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

Over all this is a great helmet. There are two reasons why I got this helmet. First is flat out I needed a new one. The second reason was I read just how quite this one was. When I got it I was so excited to see just how nice it would ride. The comfort was great but wow was it loud. March 16, 2015
So far best helmet! I really enjoy this helmet. It looks awesone and feels great. It is a little bigger than I would have liked but if I went one size smaller it would have been way too tight. Air flow is pretty good. I really only ride to commute and haven't been out in the dead of summer yet but I am sure it is great. March 9, 2015
Great value and awesomely quiet. I just love my Shoei Qwest helmet. It's light, comfortable and quiet. Ideal for long rides and short ones. This is a great helmet overall. I give it my seal of approval. March 9, 2015
Good value. Good helmet. Good helmet for the price. Very comfortable, feels a little heavier than the 3lb 8oz specs, or maybe riding without a windshield puts added pressure on my neck when doing longer rides. The visibility is good and it is a relatively quite helmet. Would buy again. March 3, 2015
Very good helmet. I love this helmet. I've owned HJC, O'neal, and some off brand helmets, but I've been converted. It's true, "You get what you pay for". It fits fantastically. The visor has no fogging problems. I love the way it looks with a smoke shield on. Couldn't be happier! February 18, 2015
Great helmet for the price Was needing a new helmet and kept bouncing between a full face or a modular. Had a HJC modular and it was time to replace it - as well as it being noisy. I had a Shoei Syncrotec and it was somewhat noisy also. Decided on a full face helmet and saw this one on close out. Liked the graphics and the fact it was a Shoei was a bonus. Purchased it and installed a Sena SMH10R in it and am a VERY happy camper. Fits great, helmet is quieter than what I have been using and it's very comfortable. February 16, 2015
Its a Shoei Well winter is here in the Midwest and I haven'tbeen afforded the opportunity to ride yet. But knowing the brand and having had them before I'm sure this will be an excellent purchase. February 16, 2015
This helmet is an awesome value! Supper price for a helmet that looks incredible, is well made and is one of the safest helmets I have owned. I have a big head, in more ways than one, and the XX I ordered fits perfect. February 16, 2015
