The 2010 Shoei QWEST Motorcycle Helmet

Released in 2010, the Shoei QWEST is a worthy successor to the very popular TZR. The new QWEST comes in a range of new colors and design features that improve its comfort.

The new SHOEI Qwest is available in several styles of silver finish to suit most riders tastes. (Light Silver, Deep Matte Grey, and Anthracite). The matte deep grey has a matte style finish which is less hard wearing than the gloss finish helmets.  Keeping the helmet in its soft cloth helmet bag will help the helmet keep its matte finish from marking.

Countless hours in SHOEI’s in-house wind tunnel have yielded a reduction of wind noise without blocking the road’s “informative sounds” thanks to optimal shell aerodynamics, and liner components designed to prevent unwanted road noises from entering through the bottom of the helmet. The result: A maximum 2.2 dB* reduction in sound.

AIM+ Shell Construction (Snell M2010-Approved) SHOEI’s proprietary AIM+ technology combines fiberglass with organic fibers that are so strong they can only be cut with a laser. The end result is a stronger, lighter shell that will absorb and distribute the force of an impact safely and efficiently.

The all-new QWEST is equipped with a 3D center pad, fully removable, washable, and replaceable multi-layer cheek pads, and removable chinstrap covers. The 3D center pad components are three-dimensionally shaped to match the contours of a rider’s head.

This 3D fitment allows SHOEI to provide a helmet with an extremely comfortable fit, while maintaining the firm hold that is necessary for distraction-free, high-speed riding. The QWEST’s multi-layer cheek pads are available in six different thicknesses to allow riders to customize the fit of their new helmet. In addition, the liner features eyeglass channels and an integrated neck pad.

Utilizing SHOEI’s wind tunnel to help reveal the optimal balance between airflow and silence, SHOEI engineers equipped the all-new QWEST with a larger Lower Vent Shutter for easier use with riding gloves; a strategically-positioned Upper Vent for optimal air intake, and uniquely-positioned Upper Exhaust Vents to take better advantage of negative pressure suction—all yielding dramatically-improved cool-air intake and hot-air expulsion.

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 tomaximize air volume into the helmet interior
-Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions
