Shoei Qwest Helmet

Posted on: January 26th, 2013 by Road Rider MCA No Comments

For the Qwest, Shoei wanted to give cruiser and sport-touring riders the best full-face helmet they could muster. The Qwest has since stood out as one of our best-selling helmets, and one of the finest full-face helmets of the style on the market. 

The engineers at Shoei used extensive wind tunnel research to mold and shape the Qwest’s shell for optimum aerodynamics and comfort while riding in an upright position or behind a windshield. A single large intake vent on the forehead allows maximum ventilation when open, and its design keeps wind turbulence and noise to a minimum.

Shoei’s internal shape, 5 different shell sizes, and contouring 3-D Liner System ensure an immediately comfortable but snug fit for most riders. And as always, Road Rider will change out the cheek pads on your new Shoei helmets for free to provide the best possible fit for your head.

The Qwest comes in at a very reasonable price, but is Snell approved for safety and supported by Shoei’s five year warranty.

“The Shoei Qwest is one of the nicest helmets I’ve worn in the 10+ years of reviews.” – Rick K,
