The Shoei Qwest is an ideal lid for many styles of riding, from everyday commuting to continental touring. It has been designed to block out ambient noise on a long ride with a sleek aerodynamic design, neck padding and excellent visor fit. The reduction of ambient noise prevents rider fatigue on long rides, making the Qwest a great choice for touring. This versatile helmet is very popular, making use of Shoei's pioneering technology but without an overly hefty price tag.
This helmet deserves its popularity. It has achieved the maximum SHARP safety rating of 5 stars, which means that the Shoei Qwest has proved that it is second to none when it comes to protection. Shoei have achieved this by using an AIM+ outer shell, which is an extra-strong and highly rigid matrix of organic and high-performance fibres. It is also very lightweight.
The main shock absorption within the Qwest comes from the dual density EPS inner shell. Designed to compress on impact, the various densities offer the greatest protection at the major impact points, whilst keeping the weight of the helmet to a minimum wherever possible.
Shoei use their own wind tunnel to test and develop their designs, so the aerodynamics and ventilation on the Qwest are highly refined. The multiple intake vents to the front of the helmet channel cool air around the rider's head, before exhausting warm air out of the helmet through the exit vents to the rear. The integrated spoiler and aerodynamic shape of the Shoei Qwest will reduce drag and lift at high speeds, reduce the pressure on the rider's neck and generally make for a more pleasant riding experience.
For longevity and hygiene, the cheek pads and chin strap cover on the Qwest are all fully removable and washable - Two Wheel Centre recommends hand washing these and leaving them to dry naturally. For a tailored individual fit, the cheek pads come in different sizes which can be changed to suit you.
The Qwest comes complete with a clear, Pinlock-ready CW-1 visor, with a Pinlock anti-fog insert supplied. The visor also features Q.R.S.A. self-adjustment technology, so the visor will always fit well to the beading. The visor is simple and quick to change.
With a double D-ring fastening system, the Qwest is easily fastened and adjusted.
Dark visors are for illustration only - a clear visor will be supplied.
