Shoei Qwest- A great fit

I've only been riding in this helmet a few times, but it has the best fit for the price. It's obviously well-made and very light weight. I've used an HJC before this helmet, and the weight of the HJC gave me neck cramps after long rides. The Qwest is also pretty quiet, and looks AMAZING in matte black. I'd recommend this helmet to anyone who wants bang for their buck and appreciates quality construction.

Shoe Qwest Helmet

Excellent helmet & quiet. Great air flow design reduces wind buffeting. Exactly what I needed. Visor does fog up a bit in the cold.

Shoei Qwest helmet

A helmet evaluation appearing in the April 2011 issue of "Cycle World" magazine peaked my curiosity about replacing my now discontinued HJC CS-12 model. The HJC has always provided good service, but since I have a huge XXL noggin I thought I'd splurge on a Shoei Qwest for perhaps a better fit if for nothing else. So far so, so good. GREAT fit and very good ventilation with negligible fogging. The liner is luxurious compared to my HJC. The check pads are a bit snug, but better snug than sloppy I always say! The magazine article claimed that the Qwest was THE quietest helmet their staff had ever tested. I concur, it's a real quiet ride on my non-windshielded Yamaha Road Star. For the size of an XXL helmet shell, this helmet seems light to me. The finish is excellent and even the straps are easy to manipulate in and out of the D-rings. The qwest has all the hallmarks of an excellent helmet. With a $20.00 off coupon I had from a previous purchase, $294.00 seemed to be a real bargain. In my 41 years of motorcycling, this is the highest quality, best fitting helmet I've ever had the pleasure of owning, and I've had a bunch of 'em.

This helmet is very good. I have the white color which is very visible, looks good and is very quiet. The faceshield fits great and opens easy when needed!

Great helmet

This is my first street helmet, but I've had a few motocross helmets, the most recent being a Shoei. This helmet is surprisingly affordable compared to some of the other comparable helmets from Arai, etc. Several ratings agencies gave it a 5/5 which rarely occurred for a single helmet to have 5's in all 3 ratings. Excellent fit and quality. Motorcycle Superstore is grerat. Lowest price, free shipping, and helmet got here in 2 days.

Love his helmet

The helmet fits great, looks good and is light! I was worried that my neck would get tired after long rides. Not with this helmet. I also like how easy it is to change out face shields. This is a very nice helmet.

Best helmet I have found.

As becoming a new cyclist, the purchase of this Shoei Qwest helmet has been a real joy. The helmet fit is very snug and comfortable. The inside cushion layers are soft and tight. The helmet quality is evident and the ride noise is very quiet. I am not an overall expert with helmets, but Shoei's quality and protection of one's head are the major reasons I chose this product.

Excellent value

This is my first Shoei, and I am impressed with how much quality you get for such a low price. The visor design is especially good. Pops on or off in seconds, and the spring-loaded seal when you close it is a nice touch.

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.

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.

Great Helmet

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.
