Shoei Qwest Sonoma 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

Good but expected more This helmet fits good, looks good, and is light. This helmet is not as quiet as I expected. The fit is good but not as comfortable as the RF1000. Also looks rather large. I would not order again. I just expected more. September 8, 2014
A nice helmet despite a little bit of noise I like this helmet. It looks great and is very well made. I do experience a little bit of high-pitched noise if I'm not wearing my earplugs. September 8, 2014
Helmet seems very solid all around, fits well, quality construction. Planned to buy a less expensive helmet, but after trying on many makes and models, decided there was no comparison to Shoei quality. Was willing to pay more for a more solid feeling and comfortable helmet. September 8, 2014
Good helmet for the Average Rider I have been wearing this helmet for 2 months. Overall, this helmet is a good all-around helmet when it comes to being in the positions of upright, 3/4, and tucked. I made the mistake of not wearing the helmet to see if the fitting is correct for my noggin and settled for the large which is a size to big for my head. I tried the medium sized helmet at my local bike shop and was pleased with the fit and comfort of the helmet. I do however wish that the helmet came with a pin-lock visor instead of having to purchase one in addition. September 2, 2014
Fantastic helmet I'm very happy with this helmet. I switched from Icon Airframe to the Qwest Passage and couldn't be much more pleased. I have read conflicting reports on how loud or how quiet the Qwest is and for me riding upright on my cruiser, the helmet is very quiet, no wistle or wind noise other than what you would expect. Maybe I just have the right shaped head? The helmet is quite lite and extremely comfortable. I can feel the air being vented through the helmet when the vents are open, especially at the crown of my head. My only complaint is that the visor it comes with and other Shoei shields don't have any anti-fog treatment, if you want anti-fog you need to shell out some more cash and get the pinlock shield AND insert. The helmet should at least come with the pinlock ready shield. Overall, great value for money, great comfort, and great styling. August 28, 2014
Good product Was really quiet, and lighter then my other helmet. The airflow was good, and love the matte black look. August 25, 2014
Perfect, basic helmet 6'0", 170lbs, 59cm head, Large fits great. Very quiet and controlled at freeway speed on my V-Strom. Comfortable, light enough. My only gripe is there's no drop down visor, which I wouldn't mind EXCEPT neiter of the sunglasses I wear regurarly fit well inside the helmet. Sooo, I used my zillacash from the helmet purchase to buy a dark smoke visor. Now I'll have to carry an extra visor in case I'm out late but that beats uncomfortable smashed glasses. To be fair, the smaller pair fits okay and the foam may settle in. August 20, 2014
Unfortunately the only helmet that fit my head shape. Pros: - The helmet fit my head which most don't seem to. - The helmet is quiet. - The graphics are very nice and highly visible - Solid construction with a comfortable liner and Snell rating. Cons: - They forgot to put in any real ventilation. I had the visor fog up in 70 degree weather. A problem I did not even know you COULD have. - The 'crack and lock' function opens the visor so little that you probably will not see any difference in fogging. You certainly won't feel any cooler. - While their are pockets for speakers and a tiny amount of room for a microphone there is absolutely no way to run wires from one side of the helmet to the other. - The liner is not removable (cheek pads are but not the top liner) - No reflective elements. This is a hi-viz helmet but there are no retro-reflective elements. Your going to have to grab your own tape. - I miss my drop down visor. Personal preference but I really noticed moving to this helmet that there is no way to reduce sun glare when it suddenly comes up. Conclusion: if it were not for this being the only helmet I can find that fits my head I would have returned it. August 19, 2014

John B: I bought this for my lovely girlfriend although neither of us are crazy about the random splash of white on the back, its a very pretty design, has that comm pocket in the ears for the twin Sena SMHR10 comm pack so she can tell me to slow down.

A shopper asked: I wonder if Qwest Sonoma helmet is good for long and fast drive like 120kph speed or so? Feb 20, 2014

Karen R: As an avid frequent rider, I have traveled approximately 149 miles (240km) with speeds from 90-110mph (144-177 kmh) on my Dyna HD. The helmet is a solid fit with some wind noise and vibration at those speeds, however it is very light weight and long distance trips (4+hours) my neck and back muscles are not fatigued.
Personally, I am very very pleased with my purchase and love this helmet. In addition, I receive a lot of compliments on this helmet as it is beautiful! I am sold on the Shoei helmets as I have owned had four other types of helmets and none compare to the quality, fit, noise level and lightweight this helmet provides.

Patrick D: I have been driving at speeds which are any where from 75 and beyond (120 KPH plus) with this helmet on. It performs well above the rest. It is quiet most of the time at lower speed. At speed 75 MPH (120 KPH) and faster, the noise becomes more apparent, but not too unpleasant. I experience no wind lift at all. This full face helmet is a great addition to my collection. Hope this helps. Feb 21, 2014
