What's this?

Shoei Qwest 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 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 eyeport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you. Snell M2015 and DOT ratings means the Qwest is no compromise when it comes to safety.

Aerodynamic Shell Design:

  • Aerodynamic properties 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 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 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

Interior:

  • 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 (sold separately)
  • Optional CW-1 Pinlock-prepared face shields accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately)
  • CW-1 three-dimensionally curved face shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces 
  • 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)
  • Standards: Snell M2015, DOT

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

Shoei Qwest Helmet - Solid 4.6 5 535 535
Great helmet! I don't have much reference as it is my first helmet. I can comment though on the sizing, I measured my head and was in between a MD and a LG size, went for the large and it was too tight. Went to test a couple in a brick-n-mortar store and found this exact same model in the XL size. Fit was perfect - went back home and made the exchange. May 20, 2016
FOG CITY This is my second helmet, first one being the ICON Alliance. I thought it time to upgrade for whatever reason. First off, the helmet FITS SMALL. I actually sat and measured my head and the measurements came out as a size medium. NO WAY. Had to send it back. My jaw felt as though it was in a vice. Finally got the right size and have worn it for the past two days. It FOGS LIKE CRAZY. Yesterday was 65 and sunny...fog. Today it was 50 and rainy....couldn't even see unless I cracked the visor a bit. My ICON at $150 never fogged like this. I've been reading about the pin lock system which seems absolutely necessary if I am actually going to wear this helmet. Thats another 100 bucks. Not super pleased... May 13, 2016
Excellent helmet for the price. Comfortable and relatively lite for the price. I like Shoei helmets so I might be a little bias. For a comfortable all around bonnet this will do the trick. May 12, 2016
Just what i wanted I have always had cheap helmets, and I wanted a quality lid for the drag strip as well as everyday riding. This is excellent for everything. I rode several hours the other day in it and it was outstanding. My bike is LOUD and this helmet makes it a lot less loud. It is stable even at 100+ mph. It is comfortable and air flow is great. It has the inserts for Bluetooth speakers. I would definitely recommend this helmet May 3, 2016
comfortable, sturdy, loud, foggy been wearing this helmet daily for a few months. I like this helmet, It is comfortable and has a great field of view. the fit and finish is high quality and it has great safety ratings around the globe. There are some problems that I will detail here. Fit: It is advertised for round heads, but I have a normal head and it fits fine. I ordered true to my size, and it was a tight fit. the break in was 8-10 rides, now it is comfortable. one problem with the fit is that the chin bar sits really close to your nose, promoting fogging. Weight: this is a major strength of this helmet. It is light for the price. much lighter than my old HJC. Many shell sizes means you are not oversizing. Noise: This helmet is loud. It is advertised as quiet, and it is unless there is air moving around it. Huge wind noise comes from the bottom of the helmet but I can make it stop my placing my hand near my neck. I suspect that the aerodynamics were designed for a fully fared bike. I think this helmet would be amazingly quiet on a bike with a windshield. I wear earplugs so it doesn't bother me. Also there was a loud whistle when I first got it. this was coming from the edge of the shield. I fiddled with adjustment screws and fixed the whistle Vision: the vision is wonderful on this helmet. Your face sits close to the shield so you feel like you can see everything. another strength of the qwest. Fogging: this is a big problem. If the temperature is below 60F or it has rained in the last 5 hours, there will be fog. cold and rainy? fog city. opening all of the vents helps, but does not fix the problem. there is a little lever to open the visor a crack, but this does nothing for me. The only fix is to use the lowest open detent. This will clear the fog unless you are stopped. You could look into the pin lock system. Other: There is a mild amount of air flow around visor with all of the vents open, but there is little air to the rest of the helmet. It is enough for me but I don't have a sweaty head. one nitpick is that the material used for the comfort liner is a velcro magnet! it will grab any hook side velcro and bind very strongly. This is very annoying when I'm wearing my rain suit that has a velcro neck flap. i try to turn my head and have to drag my jacket with it. Overall, it is a solid choice. I bought it because of the great safety ratings and weight. I can live with the cons, but I expect to be looking for a different model when I replace this in ~2 years. April 26, 2016
Better than my Bell I haven't had this for very long yet but I can tell right away that it is much more comfortable and quiet than my bell revolver. Seems very well made. April 19, 2016
Great entry-level Shoei I've had good experiences with Shoei helmets in the past, and the Quest has been a nice replacement for my old Shoei. Good fit, build quality, and air flow. April 13, 2016
Great helmet I bought Qwest late summer 2015 and did approximately 3 thousand miles with it. The fit and comfort is great, pretty much in line with Arai and Shoei helmets I owned in the past. It's fairly light and even after 3-4 hour long rides my neck feels pretty good. Although Qwest is the most affordable helmet in the Shoei lineup, it performs pretty close to much more expensive lids. The field of view is wide, unobstructed and "blind spots" are brought down to minimum. My only complaint is the noise. Riding in the city is comfortable and helmet is pretty quiet but once on a highway it produces pretty annoying high pitched whistling noise regardless if vents are open or not. I even installed a chin curtain but that didn't help a lot. Anyway, I just might be too picky when comes to noise but I can tell you it's definitely much noisier than my Shoei RF1200. Overall, Qwest is a great helmet and I would definitely recommend it. Btw, it looks simply mighty when paired with dark smoke visor. April 1, 2016
