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.

Shoei Qwest Helmet Review


Shoei Qwest Solid Product Details:
Shoei has developed a brand new, high grade shell design. Ventilation is integrated into the shell for a more streamlined look. The aerodynamically improved shape utilizes an air spoiler to reduce drag and lift, as well as diminish weight pressure on the neck, while riding at high speeds. All Shoei helmets undergo rigorous wind tunnel testing in developing a design that can withstand severe real world riding conditions.


  • Aerodynamic Shell Design
  • Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior
  • High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient
  • 3-D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads
  • 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
  • Scratch-resistant coating
  • 99.9% protection from harmful UV A & B rays
  • Snell-M2010, DOT
  • 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium Solid Color)

    Our Thoughts
    Shoei QWEST Helmets are your perfect companion for every day ride and the grand tour as well. A concept that would keep the best balance of light weight and noise reduction for maximum comfort and overall keeping your head safe.

    Quest Helmet - Crossbones   TX Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Comfortable, quiet, proud to own.
    Cons: None

    This helmet is a huge upgrade from my Zox and Bilt. They both were good but the Quest is so much better. I ride a Harley and needed a new helmet. The fit is so comfortable and the quality is so much better as far as the head and check pads. The visor is so clear and precise it's like you don't have one. I use the light smoke all they time. Very quiet , lots of air flow, good look, and to protect my head the price is more than fair. Buy now.

    shoei helmet - kmmcleod   NY Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: light weight
    Cons: nnone

    The helmet is very comfortable and light weight.

    Outstanding product - Terry   OH Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Fit, looks, noise level
    Cons: Cost of parts.

    Overall the Qwest is a great helmet. I have one for myself and one for my girlfriend. The fit is excellent and the matt coloring looks great, in my opinion. I appreciate how quiet it is when you cinch in the face shield. There is just a hint of wind noise but not like my old helmet which sounded like I was in a wind tunnel. My only major complaint is the cost of the accessories. I think 90 for a mirrored face shield is a tad on the high side. And the slap in the face is that Bell beat Shoei with the release of theit transition face shield...now that would be worth 90. Even that won't stop me from buying Shoei in the future.

    Buffalo Ny rider  
    I bought this helmet based on the reviews I had read, that said it was the quietest helmet they had ever tested. I had also read that Shoei helmets are of very high quality. Well, both are true, and to top it off, Competition Acc. quoted me a killer price, well below what other websites had advertised. I am very happy with this helmet.

    Good Shoei Helmet - Brent Wallace   MO Recommended by Reviewer: Yes
    Pros: Shoei Quality, good protection, color selection, wind noise, good vents
    Cons: not a removable inner liner

    Bought this helmet for my wife and she likes it. My biggest problem with it was the inner liner was not removable. She will riding two up on the back every so often so it won't get much use. If is is an every day user, may want to find one with removable liner.

    I ordered the new Qwest to replace my Sparx great helmet for more safety. The helmet looks great Anthracite color is awesome. It is comfortable and is pretty quiet. I ride a Triumph Tiger so no helmet will be "quiet" but this is as good as it gets. The optics are great and I recommend the pin lock for anti-fogging...I will need to get those. I ride with the shield partially open usually anyway so mute point. I tried an Arai Quantum 2 and it was so loud...booming...had to ride back home and switch helmets. It was nice but not for me!

    Almost Perfect  
    I bought a Shoei Qwest full face helmet a couple of weeks ago and it's almost perfect. It's a good-looking helmet, warm in the winter, and easy to open or close the vent ports. The fit is snug getting it on and off but you want that--that's a good thing. You don't want a loose helmet. The paint on the light silver I bought was flawless and offers good visibility. It's reasonably quiet over my last helmet, and I ride a cruiser with a windshield. The only downside is the chin strap center pad material is thin and flimsy and falls off to the side, causing the strap itself to cut into the neck. Shoei needs to redesign this using a thicker, more rigid but still comfortable chin pad material. I had to sew a few stitches to join the strap and material so they wouldn't separate. I don't think the center pad material will last very long. Not a big deal, but for the price I paid I want a very comfortable helmet all the way around that will last several seasons of riding. Other than that, it's a great helmet. Shoei, fix the chin strap center pads material!!!

    So So - Shoei Qwest   CA Recommended by Reviewer: No
    Pros: Solid construction
    Cons: Cost is way too high for what you get

    The product fits well but it is not quiet at all. At highway speed the wind passes through the visor attachment points and produces a very high pitch noise that drives me crazy. Wish I had bought a different helmet and after three weeks of this disaster I probably will.

    Matt  
    I got the Quest in white, it's nicely made and really comfortable, but unlike the other reviewers here, I do not find it quiet at all. Subjectively it seems much louder than either my Shoei RF1000 or AGV S-4. I'm riding a G650 with no windshield and an F800ST. I've played with all the vent permutations to no effect. Unfortunately I bought it purely for the promise of it being "The quietest", which I'm finding it not to be. The RF1000 and AGV also seem to vent more aggressively. Otherwise a great helmet.
