Inspired by the journey and the adventure that accompanies every motorcycle ride, the Shoei Qwest is a helmet designed to enhance and complement the experience along the way. Shaped by countless hours in Shoei's wind tunnel, details like foam placement along with the lightweight aerodynamic shell design combine to cancel out noise while reducing drag and lift. Add in an industry leading ventilation system and over 50 years of helmet building experience and the affordable Shoei Qwest not only gives you all day riding comfort, but the finest touring helmet available.
Aerodynamic Shell Design -Aerodynamic properties are maximized wind tunnel and -Dual Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation -Five shell and six EPS liner sizes present increased fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes -Molded air spoiler to reduce drag and lift as well as diminish weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds
Ventilation System -Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior -Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions -Easy to operate large lower intake vent -Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation -The rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust -Breath guard and chin curtain included -Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) -High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient
Interior System -3-D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads -Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance -Eyeglass compatible interior -Standard Chin-Strap Clip -Neatly secures chin strap -CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System -Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation. The spring-loaded base plate (U.S. patent pending 11/799935) pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal -The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces -Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available -Scratch-resistant coating -99.9% protection from harmful UV A & B rays -Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock -Fog Free Inserts -A preset lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow
