Fit is great for my round melon, but, much like others have mentioned, it pinches tight at the cheeks. I had to buy thinner replacement cheek pads and the fit is perfect now. The airflow is good for breath-ability, but it's not too good at keeping the visor from fogging up during cold morning rides. It's biggest selling point for me is its quietness. Yeah, I'd buy this helmet again from Motorcycle Superstore.

Its obviously a very good helmet, well built, really keeps the wind off my eyes, which is great. I was, however, disappointed that I still get an awful lot of wind noise, but maybe that is because my head or neck is too skinny, and not the fault of the helmet. I have to tilt my head down, like I'm looking at the ground, in order to reduce the wind noise.

I'm new to motorcycling and decided I wanted a high-quality helmet. This helmet met it's claims. Comfortable, light weight, great build quality. In a past life I did a lot of drag racing, using a Snell certified Simpson open face helmet. The full-face Shoei is lighter than my old open-faced Simpson. And the Shoei is Snell certified also.
Shoei Qwest Helmet

Fits perfectly. Priced right. Bought it as a race helmet. Shoei has a good name so I have confidence in the product. My everyday helmet is a Schuberth.
Shoei helmets are simply the best

The Qwest is superb in every instance: comfort, silence, easy to clean, air flow, presence, visibility, shape, weight. I have other Shoeis and other brands, and the Shoeis are the best in every category.
I like this helmet

Quietest helmet I have owned. I like the vent controls, currently learning to use them while riding. Good vision. Fast shipping from Motorcycle Superstore.

It is worth every penny. I had a cheap Vega and now Shoei Qwest Helmet I gained 30 km more speed on my 800 volusia bike just by switching to the aerodynamic helmet and will save my ears as well.

Fit is perfect and the padding is luxurious. I really like how snug the shield fits against its gasket, making for a water-tight seal. I find that with earplugs (I always use them) it is quieter than my previous helmets. The only problem I have is the venting: even with all the vents open, fogging is pretty bad on cool mornings. Don't know what to make of that. Otherwise a GREAT helmet.

Overall a great value. Not quite as good as an ARAI, but it's not as expensive.
Good then not so good

Feels plush and luxurious when you first put it on - major selling point. Does not stay this way as inner materials give over time. Cancelled noise well at first, but now is starting to whistle as the innards lose their original shape. It's a little heavy which rather than improving wind cancellation, seems to make my head bounce around more when a good gust gets hold of the weighty lid. Ok helmet for the price I guess which is why I bought it, but doesn't seem to hold up.
