Customer Reviews for Shoei Qwest - Matt Black
Top quality and very light
Top quality and very light, also I found it to be quiet and comfortable. Looks awesome with dark tinted visor. Matt black finish is quite durable, I went cartwheeling through a load of trees at 45mph in an accident, had branches and twigs sticking out all the vents etc, as well as a branch go under my chin inches from my neck and out through the visor, most of the scratches buffed out using Armourall.Read more
Best I've had
Best Helmet I've ever had but that's not saying much due to the crap I've bought before. It is a little noisier than I expected but I'm sure that's just buffeting from my screen because if I duck down it quietens down considerably.Read more
Great fit, great colour, well made, great value. Thank you.Read more
Straight out of the box this helmet looks great in the matt black finish. It's very comfortable with ample padding around the face, and has an easy to use double D ring strap. I always wear earplugs when riding but even so this helmet is noticeably quieter than others I have owned, there's very little wind noise and it feels light. The Pinlock insert and chin curtain are also nice additions that come in the box. Overall a great purchase.Read more
Fantastic and comfortable helmet, comes with Pinlock which is a bonus. However, quite noisy on motorways hence 4 rather than 5 stars, Looks great in Matt black.Read more

Originally purchased the Shoei open face helmet, great helmet but really did not suit me. Exchanged it for this Full Face and what a great helmet it is. Looks good in Matt Black, it's comfortable and quiet. Just needs the smoked visor to finish it off. Highly recommended helmet and once again superb service Sportsbikeshop.Read more

Great lid - quality price
Very comfy, low noise - greasy fingers show up easy on the mat black but easily wiped. Oly minor is the clasp. Priced matched me too so a bargain for the price.Read more

The Qwest Premium helmet from Shoei is a logical development taking the needs of touring bikers into consideration: light weight, comfortable fit and minimal noise level. The helmet's complex shape ensures ideal aerodynamics making it 60.3% quieter than the Shoei Raid-II (equivalent to 2.2db).
The Qwest features the Shoei AIM+ structure made up of 6 layers of fibres ensuring maximum strength and flexibility. Four shell sizes across seven helmet sizes ensure an optimal fit for virtually every head size possible. The Qwest has a weight of just 1400g (+/- 50) in the Medium and a spoiler integrated into the shell easing strain on the neck. The ventilation system incorporates larger, repositioned top and lower air intakes. The two rear ventilation holes are also new - warm used air is sucked out by low pressure. The rider's vision is maximised using Shoei's newly developed CW-1 visor technology with its Q.R.S.A. system which guarantees automatic sealing and an extra wide field of vision: a plus in safety and is especially panorama friendly for touring bikers.

Shoei manufacture all of their products using the keywords quality & value, and have used these criteria ever since they began manufacturing motorcycle helmets in January 1960. The Shoei helmet brand has always been at the forefront of motorcycle helmet technology since its creation, and continues to lead in terms of technical innovation, design, and safety. With over 50 years experience, they continue to manufacture the entire Shoei helmet range in Japan to this very day. Whilst the brand can undoubtedly be described as premium, Shoei helmets offer fantastic value for money when you consider the serious levels of comfort, build quality and technology that go into every helmet they produce. Shoei develop all of their bike helmets with a specific philosophy in mind which they call the Shoei Safety Concept. The thinking behind their philosophy is that crash helmets must be developed to ensure maximum head protection, whilst also providing unrivalled levels of comfort. Ultimately, Shoei believe that a relaxed ride provided through comfort makes a highly important contribution to the rider's safety. The safety elements of each bike helmet come under one of two headings, Passive or Active Safety. Passive safety includes focus on such elements as impact absorption and material rigidity whilst active safety refers to emphasis on ventilation, fit and noise reduction. Shoei are now, truly, one of the most popular and most highly rated helmet brands in the world.See all Shoei products…
