Shoei Qwest Helmet - Metallics

Aerodynamic Shell Design:
  • Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel testing and professional riders’ feedback
  • Dual layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation
  • Five shell and six EPS liner sizes present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes
  • Molded air spoiler to reduce drag and lift as well as diminish 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
  • The 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 System:
  • 3-D 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. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal
  • The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces
  • Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock® equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (this is not a part we currently carry)
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A & B rays
  • Optional CW-1 Pinlock® prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock® Fog Free Inserts
  • 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

Our Two Cents

The Qwest Metallic color helmets from Shoei incorporate an aerodynamic spoiler right into the shell, helping to reduce lift and drag, making for a stable and less fatiguing ride. Shoei’s engineers have worked to improve the ventilation system to increase the flow of cool air and exhaust hot air, all the while reducing noise. The metallic colors offered are popular choices and really show off the clean lines of the helmet. Another quality helmet from Shoei, one of the leaders in the market.

Our friends at webBikeWorld have conducted an extensive, thoughtful review of the Qwest helmets; it’s well worth a read.

From: Michael S.
Location: California

This helmet is light and appears well built. It's just as comfortable as the Arai Quantum/f I replaced with it and probably quieter. The ventilation isn't as good but it is more than adequate. I feel like I got a lot of helmet for the price.
