Hey this is Reuben with compettition accessories. Today we are going to be taking a detailed look at the shoei qwest. This is shoei touring helmet. This helmet has come out pretty recently which has somewhat replaced the shoei tzr which i have one of those up here to show you. Kind of in that same price point. But it has a lil bit more features geared towards touring. It has better ventaliation and a different shell shape. So if you take a look at the shoei qwest and the TZR side by side, you can tell what the differeneces are between the two of them there. Definitely more of an upright riding position helmet, it has a wider eye port to have better visibility out of the helmet. But we are going to kind of dig into this helmet here, and I will show you what it is all about. So taking a look at the ventalation features of this helmet, you have a nice large chin bar vent which is going to allow air to come in and keep your faceshield from fogging. A little bit of air through your face. The top air scoop is nice and large and you will notice it sits up nice and tall on the helmet. For those guys who sit up tall on those big touring bikes and have a lot of wind protection on your bike, this helmet will have a vent that sits up high enough on the helmet to block the wind. This helmet has two closable rear vents that are gonna draw warm air right out of the helmet. Talking about the shell, this helmet uses shoei AIm plus shell which stands for advanced integrated matrix plus multi fiber which is kind of a mouth full there. Carbon kevlar fiberglass composite and the helmet is snell 2010 and DOT approved. This helmet is quiet and is its claim to fame. it is 1.25 decibels quiter than the RF-1100 and that is largely impart to the vents. It has a lil bit less ventalation features, but for you guys that are riding longer distances, you are on the road all day long, you need your helmet to be as quiet as possible. Taking a look at the face shield on this helmet, this is the same faceshield that is used on their shoei qwest, rf-1100, and X12. So if you are moving between helmets in the shoei lineup, you can still use the same shields. There is a pinlock system available for this so if you live in an aread where fogging or is more humid, you can get a shield with pinlock inserts to help keep the shield fog free. I have used one of their products before and it works really well, so if fogging is an issue, I would encourage you to check them out as well. The way the shield mechanism works, it is very nice and easy. On the side, the first thing that I will show you is the face shield locking mechanism. You tilt this little lever towards the back and it will lock the shield down in place and it can't fly open on you incase you are running at high speeds on your sport touring bike. You can also push the lever mechanism forward and it will give you a very small opening in the front of the helmet to allow for a lil bit more air to come in. so again if you are running into issues with fog or if its really hot you can crack the faceshield to get a little bit more air flow. As you can see there are several different detints that allow you to crack the faceshield even further allowing more air flow to come inside of the helmet. There are ratchets points all the way up and down, so you have a lot of adjustability moving the faceshield up and down. To remove the shield, there are basically two shields on each side and you push that forward. If you get in nice and tight, you can see that lever there, that is basically allows you to remove the faceshield off. If you look at the top of the shield, it actually has a very large lip and it is kind of hard to see on camera. but it has a lip on top of the helmet and what that is going to allow it to do is give you a nice seal along the top of the gap. So if you are riding in the rain, you are not going to have water dripping down on the inside of your shield. So that is definitely a huge welcome feature for the touring rider. Let me go ahead and reinstall this shield here, you basically just line the pins up and it just clicks right on into place. Now we are going to take a look at the inside of this helmet. Okay so taking a look at the interior of the shoei qwest. Like I said at the beginning of the video, it has a wider opening so its going to be a lot easeier to get your head in and out. Now this helmet is a round oval fit so if you have a little bit fuller of a head, this helmet is probably going to work really well for you. The only thing removable about this helmet is the cheek pads, so I will go ahead and pop one of those out here for you. There are basically three snaps and then it comes right out and you can obviously take them out and wash them. and if you need to you can replace them or go up or down in size if necessary. They are a nice layered cheek pad, what they do is put down several layers of foam on the inside to give you a nice contoured shape. They feel really comfortable against your skin as well. One thing you will see behind this cheek pad is the recess which is perfect for installing a communication system. As I said earlier, this helmet has a nice chin bar space to install the microphone in space. As far as the chin curtain goes, it does come with this really small chin curtain here. If you need a larger one, there is one available as well. So that pretty much covers all the features of the shoei qwest helmet, and this helmet is great for long distance touring riding. Solids are going to start at just over 300 dollars and the graphic at just over 400 dollars. Another neat feature is that shoei does come with a five year warranty policy from the date of purchase or seven year from the date of manufactre. Shoei has a great inspection policy that if you drop your helmet or have a crash with it, you can send it back to shoei and they will inspect the helmet for free. They will even cover the cost of return freight back to you.
Hey this is Reuben with Competition Accessories welcome to our first ride in the Shoei RF1200. Now you may be looking at this video and thinking wait a minute that's a RF1100 on his head, That's right. Good Job. What I'm actually going to do in this video is do a real world ride test in comparison between the RF1200 which is all new and the Shoei RF1100. I think a RF-1100 vs RF-1200 comparison is worth doing for sure because a lot of you guys are Shoei helmet fans, and rightly so, they make a fantastic motorcycle helmet. Alright i just switched into the new Shoei RF1200 helmet and i literally just swapped it out after wearing a Shoei RF1100 so back to back comparison should reveal just how much improvement they have made. Now the Shoei RF1000 was also extremely well received very popular helmet design . A lot of people from what I've heard from feedback over the years, I've heard a lot of people actually prefer the RF1000 to the RF1100 of coarse it all comes down to personal preference . When i look at the RF1200 i think Shoei has really gone back in that direction back to a more compact shell, its definitely a lighter weight helmet which is always a good thing. Shoei said its one of the lightest SNELL full faced helmets they have ever produced which is great. So first impression putting it on its definitely got a tighter opening to put your head into the helmet and over all i would say its a little bit more snug actually , a little bit more of a sporty fit. Head shape is the same, its kind of a intermediate oval, But i definitely feel a little bit better of a seal at the base of the shell and around the jaw line which is very important on reducing wind noise. Were going to get up to speed to see how it sounds here . Lets see that's 80mph indicated right there. Head checks no problem , not really getting any type of whistling. Again the shield mechanism you don't have that lock on the side it actually just locks into place with the tab on the side and you'll notice that the tab is angled down like the RF 1100 tab was and its moved over again to reduce wind noise. Now I'm going to open these vents up you have just one slider switch on the back now to open the vent , and you have a new forehead vent which i have to hunt for because Ive never used it before .There we go i got that opened , chin bar vent actually has two positions. I can actually feel air from that going up onto the face shield that feels good. Obviously i didn't install the pin lock insert and lets go ahead and open these upper vents here. Okay cruising with all the vents open, You could say its similar to the RF1100. Of coarse its kind of difficult to tell exactly how much air is coming threw the helmet and i know Shoei did a lot of wind tunnel testing for aerodynamics and also for ventilation . But in the real world it feels about the same definitely not a dramatic difference , which is not a bad thing let me just clear that right up. The Shoei RF1100 was a very well vented helmet in my opinion, i think it flowed a good amount of air for the category that its in . Its not on the same level as the X12 which is Shoei's top of the line race helmet but it was a good amount of air flow. As far as aerodynamics go it feels very stable . The eye port is definitely dramatically improved i would say. The RF1100 eye port wasn't distracting in any way but looking out of this thing I've got a lot more vision especially out of the top of the shield not the same along the bottom but the peripherals and along the top which is improved for sure which is fantastic for you guys when you get in that sporty tucked position you can look out the top of it the new base plate mechanism also has it seems like more detente through out the range and definitely more pronounced detentes . Your getting definitely more positive clicks at each step. Now it doesn't have that lever on the side for the city position but you can crack it and it stops in this position here and this is the first real detente. You can see this is quite a bit larger of an opening in the bottom of the shield there which is good for when its really cold or foggy out. Were going to leave it open for a minute just to see how it feels. On the Shoei RF1100 in the sitting position you definitely have a bit of whistling in the Shoei RF1200 with this more pronounced crack I'm not getting any whistling but i am getting definitely a lot more air up into my face and eyes probably a little too much for the freeway really. You can just pop the lock and leave it in that position but it seems to obviously with the wind pushing it its pushing it closed a little bit so your not really getting much air flow down that way . I definitely like that you can open and close the rear vent with just one single motion its a much faster operation then opening and closing four individual vents . I'm getting virtually no air flow and that's without a chin curtain up inside the face shield or up inside the front of the helmet .A lot of motorcycle helmets will end up getting quite a bit of air up threw the bottom and you have to have a chin curtain installed especially in colder weather , not so on this one. And for my particular face these actually fit pretty well pretty comfortably , and i have enough room in the chin bar where i can stick my lips all the way out and they are not touching the chin bar. That's a good thing to and its not sticking out so far that I'm getting a lot of unwanted wind in the helmet. Alright well that's been our real world review first ride test of the Shoei RF1200.

    Shoei Pinlock Insert - Conedodger   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Just plain works
    Cons: A little fussy to install

    Combined with the Pinlock shield, this is possibly the best accessory safety item I have purchased in years No matter how hard I try, I can't fog my shield, even on 30 degree mornings.

    No fogging, no matter what. - btl68   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Works as advertised.
    Cons: Won't last as long as your face shield.

    This is the ONLY thing I have found that REALLY works to keep your face shield from fogging. I run mine day and night, all year long and it has never failed me. They do scratch easier than your face shield, so easy on the cleaning. Other than that, they are the one true way to eliminate fogging.

    Pros: Seal to Shoe Helmet RF-100 all Shoei helmets I'd imagine though
    Cons: high price

    I have had 41 years of all types helmets banging face-shield-clatter on helmets and this is the best I've ever experienced. It was hard not choosing a Chinese shield at a fourth of the price, but I'm sure, even with a Shoe RF-1100, it would clatter loudly huh what did you say I saved so much at Competition Accessories on th RF-1100 for 250 shipped, that it paid for my Shoei Chrome face shield for 99 free ship combined with RF-1100 helmet. Thanks Competition Accessories for letting me enjoy luxury helmet and accessories after 41 years I will always check you guys first from now on.

    Shoei RF-1100 and Qwest Breath Guard and Chin Curtain Replacement Parts - Johnny from Miami, Florida   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Excellent Quality and Very Effective. Much cheaper at Competition Accessories.
    Cons: Not better quality than HJC or Scorpion - at least not initially. Very pricey if you were to purchase at a bike shop.

    After years of using Scorpion and HJC I purchased a Shoei RF-1100. It was a store demo that did not have a breath guard or chin curtain. I do a lot of highway riding on a bike with no wind shield. At 70 mph the Shoei is dramatically much more aerodynamic and comfortable at highway speeds than either of the aforementioned. But Shoei is notoriously infamous for fogging and booming and my RF-1100 was true to its reputation. I ordered the Qwest breath guard and chin curtain which fits many other Shoei models and those problems were immediately eliminated when I installed them. The only disappointment was that neither seemed to be much better quality than what I had in my Scorpion and HJC but then again the curtain on HJC is sagging like a bad paint job and the breath guard on the Scorpion wont stay on anymore and I only used those helmets for a couple of years each. But like everything else with Shoei, the difference in quality is most evident over time under actual riding conditions.

    RF1100 37mm cheek pads - Thicker pads to fit better   FL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Better fit than original pads and make the fit of helmet more secure
    Cons: none

    I bought these 37mm pads as back ups to my standard 35mm pads that were still in good shape. The fit for me is better now than the stock pads and I have noticed that the way they clip into the helmet holds them more securely. The old pads would come loose in the rear at my neck after a few times of putting on and taking off the helmet. At a close look I noticed that the pads, where they slide into the slot in the back, are made a little differently and hold in better.

    Shoei Quality - rpalick   MN Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Very Clear with Excellent Interchangability
    Cons: None

    If you are like me, the clear face shield may be good at night but in the Texas sun, you definitely are going to need a tinted or smoke colored face shield. The Dark Smoke shield from Shoei was easy to install based upon their easy interchange system. This helmet and system is top notch with minimal noise and gives you a good seal. If your considering an alternate face shield you won't go wrong with this. At 45.00 the price was acceptable as far as I am concerned.

    Dark smoke shield - Ryan   CO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Everything
    Cons: None

    I bought the dark smoke as an extra shield to the RF1100 that comes with a clear shield. It works great, easy to attachremove, not too dark that you can't see at night but enough that you can ride into the sun and actually see where you're going. I've cleaned bugs off by running it under water and wiping it off with a no-scratch cloth.

    Pros: High quality
    Cons: none

    Worth the - Stacy G   IL Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Perfect tint Easy to Install
    Cons: Price

    This shield works exactly as advertised. It is easy to install and have had no issue openingclosing it. The tint is the perfect amount for a sunny day but not too much for night either. I don't like carrying extra shields with me when I ride so this one works well no matter the time of the day. At night, it can be a little dark on rural roads so I simply angle my helmet up a little bit which allows me to see thru the less tinted area of the shield. Only drawback is the price for this shield. This is the price I expect to pay for a shield with reflective coatings. It works and I would recommend to others. Guess that's all that really matters.

    X-12 Helmet & Shields - Pakleo   Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Helmet Fit and quality. Lenses Easily exchanged. Virtually no distortion. Quality construction.
    Cons: Helmet Difficult, if not impossible, to fit comm set. Lenses None.

    I have the Shoei X-12 Glory 2 Size XL with clear and Spectra Silver lenses. I recommend this helmet as the very best for all applications, except when you need a comm set. I went to a communications specialist store and they were unable, even with on-the-phone support from Shoei, to fit a comm set that I could comfortably wear without cutting some liner foam, which of course they advised against. In all other aspects this helmet exceeds my very high expectations. Is it expensive Yes. My thought, If you have a 10 head you should wear a 10 helmet. The lenses will meet all your expectations. However, they are not adverised to be fog proff and they are not. And all the cheap fog sprays and wipes will not make them so. Solution I just ordered the fog proof shield and inserts from my favorite supplier, Competition Accessories. Shoei. You meet the most intelligent people wearing the brand.
