Shoei Qwest motorcycle helmet the best balance between a comfortable; lightweight and effective noise-canceling helmet that is a pleasure to wear.
The Shoei Qwest motorcycle helmet utilizes The CW-1 visor and Q.R.S.A. system (currently used on both the X-Spirit-II and the XR-1100). The visor system ensures easy fixing and removal by a one touch; variable axis mechanism by a spring equipped visor base; which maintains close contact between visor and helmet.
This reduces wind noise caused from around the visor substantially and makes adjustment of the visor easy. High visibility increases safe and comfortable riding.
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 Pinlock® 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.
Main components such as a shell and an impact absorbing liner have been newly designed to ensure performance to satisfy all requirements.
Noise reduction during riding has been improved to minimize external ambient noise; which causes rider fatigue (during especially long rides) as much as possible. This has been done without reducing the noise blocked by the interior padding which may block essential ´informative sounds´ which improve road awareness. A flush surface design reduces the occurrence of uncomfortable wind noise. Reduction of steps between the shell and parts; such as ventilation and visor; minimizes other uncomfortable noise.
Increasing the number of shell sizes from 3 to 4 ensures ideal fit for all helmet sizes. Interiors consist of a 3-D centre pad and a multi layered cheek pad. While a 3-D pad (a Shoei standard) is used for a centre pad; a multi layered polyurethane foam; as used in the XR-1100; is utilized for cheek padding. A combination of polyurethane foams in different softness maintains firm hold whilst minimizing deterioration after a long period of use or repeated washing. Elimination of excessive pressure together with adopting soft touch fabric maintains the flawless fitting that riders have to come to expect of a Shoei premium helmet.
Slits for glasses applied to a cheek pad makes wearing with glasses / sunglasses easy and comfortable. An integrated neck pad reduces riding wind and noise from around the neck.
Cheek pads and the chinstrap cover are both removable ensuring a perfect fit through the application of varying cheek pad sizes. A space in the liner (left) can accommodate an intercom speaker.
A newly designed large upper intake is equipped in the perfect position and angle for the most effective performance through viewing and analyzing the data of experiments in Shoei´s cutting edge wind tunnel facility.
A lower air intake has also been newly designed to be visually appealing and the large shutter has been designed specifically to be easily operated by a gloved hand.
Air absorbed from around the mouth is fed through a defroster; minimizing fogging of the visor. An outlet defroster exclusive to the Shoei Qwest motorcycle helmet is angled so that the air absorbed from the lower air intake will not come into contact with the eyes directly. The brand new top outlet exhausts hot and humid air inside the helmet which makes use of the negative pressure of riding wind and controls the air stream effectively.
The well balanced Shoei ventilation performance guarantees real comfort.
Shoei´s own dual liner has been adopted for the Shoei Qwest motorcycle helmet. An air route installed between the two layered impact absorbing liner distributes fresh air absorbed from a large intake and exhausts hot air effectively from the rear outlet. Its combination of intake and outlet parts gives the very real impression of a ´breathing helmet´.
A shell shape formed of complex lines gives an aesthetically pleasing appearance and was developed using Shoei‘s accumulated scientific data and expert knowledge; as well as repeated experiments in Shoei´s own wind tunnel facility. Extensive riding tests have also been undertaken. A spoiler shape at the rear of the head restrains drag and lift by controlling the air stream over the shell surface and eases load to the neck.
A combination of Shoei´s own AIM+ shell and dual liner is used by the QWEST.
Strict safety standards in various countries and areas have been easily met and the European model satisfies ECE R22/05.
