What's this?

Shoei Qwest Wanderlust 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.

Good Helmet
I bought this helmet because it is SNELL approved and my Schuberth was not. Overall this is a well made helmet that is extremely light and comfortable.

Great everyday helmet!
I own multiple helmets, but this is my go to helmet for commuting and touring. Comfortable all day fit with adequate ventilation. I ride both faired and un-faired motorcycles, and helmet performs equally well on both. Somewhat prone to fogging for me, but a CW-1 pinlock shield takes care of that for cool/wet weather riding.

Excellent Helmet
This is my first shoei helmet. I'm very impressed with the clarity of the visor and the quality of the construction. Helmet fits comfortable and has great padding. It's very aerodynamic in the wind, and considering I don't have a windscreen this is a must for me. Only complaint I have is after a few hours wearing it, my left ear begins to hurt. Something that I haven't figured out is pushing just below my ear hole. I haven't seen this complaint anywhere so it thinking its either just my head shape or how my ear is located on my head. Perhaps after the helmet breaks in this problem will remedy itself.

Shoei is the best helmet manufacturer out there, been around for a LONG time. Needed a hi quality helmet from the best that wouldn't break the bank
William H on Aug 22, 2016
I have a odd head shape I suppose, I been to a few helm stores to try on the helm , but most of them only carry up to XL and I could not get anything fit except one. shoei neotec , but Qwest is oval shape so I am ordering this hoping it would fit , if not I will have no choice but to go with modular helm.
