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

Shoei Qwest Sonoma Helmet 4.6 5 441 441
Fits Perfect 2XL First I ordered the Icon Ghost in 3X and it was to small. My head is 24-3/4" and this fit perfect in 2X very comfortable. I also ordered the 31 MM cheek pads with it and they just put the icing on the cake. Thanks Revzilla for the painless exchange!! Oh and it looks even better in person. March 26, 2015
A quality helmet at a great price. I have been looking for a graphic yellow helmet to match some rider gear and when I saw this Shoei available on Revzilla I jumped on it! The helmet arrived practically overnight and the fit and finish do not disappoint. It is Snell and DOT, the Snell is 2010. The Qwest has been in production for some time so that may be the reason for the sale pricing. However it is a top line helmet at the best price and I am very happy with the product itself and the service provided by Revzilla. I think the sizing is true, so no need to think of a size up or down. Incidentally, the helmet also has enough room to be able to fit Bluetooth speakers in the ear cavities easily. March 23, 2015
Excellent! Expecially the price!! Awesome hemet, but did have to buy small check pads for my face March 23, 2015
This product met my expectations. I have been wearing this helmet for three months. I have had a few issues with fogging on colder days, but I have minimized this with opening all four vents. I have a long oval head shape, and this helmet has been more comfortable than previous helmets I have worn from other manufacturers. There is a loud whistle with the visor in the full-up position, but this is mostly eliminated by lowering it even by one notch. It is very quiet when closed. I bought this high visibility helmet to match a similarly colored jacket, and the combination has clearly made a difference in being seen by drivers. I can see the earlier recognition when wearing the hi-viz apparel. The helmet shape easily facilitated a right side mounting of a bullet style action camera. March 22, 2015
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

Suzane P: Went to local store and tried on a few, but wanted to come back and use Joe because he was very helpful on my first call in.... Dec 8, 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. And lastly, its a Shoei. Fantastic brand, extremely comfortable and safe. Did I mention it was pretty? Aug 22, 2014
Kurt S: It is a well built helmet by a company known for quality, and has a colored design pattern that is not overly flashy but elegant. Jul 17, 2014
Daniel A: Buying this for the wife. She wanted something girly but not too flashy. Jul 12, 2014

A shopper asked: I wonder if Qwest Sonoma helmet is good for long and fast drive like 120kph speed or so? Feb 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
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
