I just returned from an 1800+ mile ride with this helmet and I could not be happier. The vents are easy to operate with gloves and they provide excellent ventilation. Even after a long ride, my neck was never sore…this helmet has a good weight and is very comfortable. The visor is easy to remove for quick cleaning and the strap snap is a nice feature. If you want a comfortable and safe helmet, buy this today!

Excellent Helmet

I purchased this helmet and so far have put on about 400 combination highway/city miles. This helmet met all of my expectations for comfort, protection from road dust, clarity of view, air circulation and quietness. After looking at several helmets from several different companies, I settled on the Shoei Qwest in Light Silver. While on the freeway, I tested the fog clearing capabilities of this helmet and I was very impressed. If I close the helmet and breathe hot air into the helmet with the top vent open, the lens clears out immediately. If I need more air on a hot day, I can simply open the visor one click to cool off and the angle of the visor keeps out bugs and road debris. The helmet controls are easy to operate using gloves and everything seems to be very well thought out and designed.

My Shoei was older than this model but I looked for one that was as similar in style and features and approximately the same helmet so I could make this comment. My passenger and I were slammed into by a minivan doing 60 mph while we were making a slow speed turn. No one is quite sure why it happened because our memory of that day is mostly gone, but accident reconstruction showed our bike went over hard to the right and we went down hard, slamming our heads into the asphalt and then sliding for several hundred feet right into the oncoming lane. We were both knocked out but I was only out for a few hours while my passenger, with a cheaper helmet, was in a coma for three days. They survived too, but with greater injuries.

Excellent basic helmet

Great Helmet. I normally wear a small hat size but a large here fit me just right. This was reviewed by others as being one of the quietest helmets so hopefully it will not aggravate my tinnitus. Ear plugs don’t always remove all of the bothersome noise encountered on a bike so a nice quiet helmet is appreciated.

Great Brain Bucket!

This helmet is both Snell 2010 and ECE 22.05 rated. SHARP gives this helmet a 5 star safety rating as well, so it’s one of the few ECE rated helmets available in the U.S. with a 5 star SHARP rating. The vents are very intuitive to operate, even with gloves on it is easy to feel if they are open or not. The helmet has a nice defog setting and the visor mechanism is world class. It has depressions for speakers over the ears and removable cheek pads. The top lining is not removable. Wearing this helmet is a treat, with the visor closed it is very quiet and well vented.

Great helmet, fogging is an issue.

The fit of the medium Qwest is great for me, very comfortable. Visibility out of the helmet is very good. Aerodynamics are sweet as well.
{Motorcycle safety helmets have always been for both a good defense along with appearing attractive when using ones motorcycle. In addition to that, they don't really have to end up being expensive.

DIMENSION: For the very best protection, the dimension of the head protection is without a doubt crucial. A lot of people acquisition safety helmets that are a little too huge. A helmet must not allow ones head to move around too much, and need to really feel safe and secure.
