Long in the planning.
Over the last couple of years SHOEI research and development has been
focussed on mainly sports oriented helmets. The results are well known
and leaders in their categories: VFX-W, one of the most popular popular
professional motocross helmets that truly changed the shapes to come.
XR-1100, introduced 2009 as the new benchmark in sporty touring helmets.
The same year SHOEI came up with X-Spirit II, the top-of-the-line racing
helmet trusted by professional racers from MotoGP to World Super Bike.
In 2010 SHOEI made the decision to concentrate on the development of a
new and ground-breaking touring helmet, a new concept that would keep
the best balance of light weight and noise reduction for maximum comfort
plus experience and knowledge from over 50 years development of quality
motorcycle helmets for the highest level of safety while touring the
A new SHOEI helmet on the market does always mean a lot of innovation,
and so does the new touring helmet SHOEI QWEST. Riderīs will not only
read about it, they will see, feel and even hear it.
COOL EXPERIENCE. By all means the new SHOEI QWEST will take
your breath away, but it wonīt leave you breathless. As the inventor
of ventilated motorcycle helmets SHOEI has been working on the perfect
in-helmet climate system and by doing some clever modifications like
repositioning and resizing of the air intakes and adding outlets to
the back we got the result that used air will be actively sucked out
of the helmet by low pressure.
PERFECT FIT. The SHOEI QWEST comes in additional sizes to make
sure it fits sizes from xxs up to xxl perfectly. The feeling is safe
and strong but comfortable without any markable pressure points. The
Cheek Pads are removable for cleaning, and especially while touring
riders may enjoy the low weight of 1400 gr and the shell integrated
spoiler eases the strain on he riders neck even further.
ENJOY THE SILENCE. Noise level is a very important factor when
touring the road. SHOEI has a long history in taking extra care of
noise reduction in itīs products, still we where able to do even
better and the new SHOEI QWEST is 2.2 decibel quieter then previous
models. That means an impressing 60% more silent, you will definetly
hear the difference by not hearing it. Itīs all about aerodynamics and
before even starting to put hands on the helmet SHOEI developed a
whole new dedicated wind tunnel just to make sure the right tools are
Look good. See better. Already wellknown from the flagship
racing model X-Spirit II and the premium sports tourer XR-1100 the new
SHOEI QWEST comes equipped with the revolutionary CW-1 visor system
and the Q.R.S.A variable axis mechanism . The CW-1 is made of
polycarbonate and 3-D moulded with minimum distortion. It is hard
coated and vastly reduces the effects of UV. An effective PinlockŪ
fog-free lens has been enlarged by about 30% through the combination
of a CW-1 visor and the Q.R.S.A. system with variable axis mechanism.
The vision in the upper portion of the visor has been substantially
improved and promises high safety and comfort in such varying
situations as rainy weather and cold mornings for different
motorcycles and riding positions.
Safety comes in layers. The AIM+ shell is one of the core
elements forming the SHOEI QWEST. Itīs 6 layers of reinforced organic
fibres and glassfibre result in a more elastic and still lighter
construction than a pure glassfibre shell. The technology has been
patented and is regarded as the technical property of SHOEI.
