Touted as a "Universal Touring Helmet," the Shoei Qwest Motorcycle Helmet was built with a focus on light weight, comfortable fit and minimal noise levels to bring a new level of comfort for those long rides. The Qwest Helmet offers a slightly round oval internal shape, a vent configuration which flows tons of air in an upright touring position and is 1.2DB quieter than the RF-1100 Helmet. The Shoei Qwest Helmet is also SNELL 2010 Approved.
With 4 different shells sizes for seven sizes of helmets (2XS-2XL), optimal fit can be acquired without the additional weight and bulkiness that other helmets suffer from. This saves not only size which helps the helmet cut through the wind and decreases buffeting, but also saves weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield and an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision.
Noise reduction has been aided by a heavy focus on aerodynamics in the Shoei Qwest. In order to obtain an optimal shape, Shoei built an entirely new state-of-the-art wind tunnel. While a number of factors can impact noise levels, in development the Shoei Qwest has tested to be significantly quieter than other models.

This helmet is sometimes denoted as the Shoei Quest Helmet.
