About Shoei
Q & A

Shoei's latest offering comes in the form of the brand new 'Qwest'. This new lid has all the qualities, features, cutting edge design and technology associated with the entire Shoei helmet range from entry level through to their full race spec lids, worn by professional racers from MotoGP to World and British Super Bikes.

Shoei helmets offer the highest levels of comfort with an unrivalled fit, plus the highest quality build construction and the usual Shoei attention to detail. The Qwest offers all riders an affordable entry point into the latest Shoei helmet technology - allowing everyone the ability to appreciate the technology, flawless fit and safety features employed in Shoei helmets. From the 'ground up' the Qwest has been designed with three main concepts in mind; comfort, weight and noise reduction.

The Qwest is a lightweight contender at just 1400g (+/- 50) in size Medium. The shell has been designed with a spoiler shape at the rear of the head, this feature restrains DRAG and LIFT by controlling the air stream over the shell surface easing the load to the neck. The Qwest is also 60.3% quieter than the Shoei Raid-II model (equivalent to 2.2db), this minimising of external ambient noise (a main contributor in rider fatigue) has been successfully implemented without effecting the ability to still hear essential 'informative sounds'. The helmets super smooth/flush surface design with improved shell to visor/ventilation amalgamation further aides in the reduction of uncomfortable wind noise whilst riding. With an increase of shell sizes from 3 to 4 the 'Quest' ensures an ideal fit for all, with the highest levels of comfort obtained from 3-D formed multi-layer cheek and centre pads; using a combination of polyurethene foam densities which help to maintain a firm hold with minimal deteriation after repaeted use and washing. The devil really is in the detail...and this helmet is no exception, easily glanced over features such as slits in the cheek pads, makes wearing this lid with glasses/sunglasses much easier and a great deal comfier 

Until recently Shoei's main focus has been on sports based helmets, so the new 'Qwest' was to design and develop the best touring helmet possible. Their development department was briefed to find the best balance between comfort, weight and effective noise-reduction so that the helmet would be a pleasure to wear...the result...Qwest!
