Saved my life
If you don't like your life, it might save it.
I have a neighbor who races motorcycles and flat out told me to buy a Shoei. I did as much research I could, but at the end of the day Shoei had the reputation and history of making great quality helmets that kept you safe and I knew if there was one place I should spend my money it would be on a high quality helmet and so I bought this one.
I went riding on a beautiful, dry, sunny morning on some longer country roads when I hit a patch of sand at about 50mph and immediately hit the road face first and then rolled/slid on my side with the helmet scraping the whole way. The helmet took the full force of the fall, the face shield was cracked where it meets the helmet and scraped but did not completely break. If I had been wearing a non-full-face helmet I would easily be dead or drooling in a hospital bed to this day. No single part of my head or neck hurt, not even a headache or any sense that I had just hit my head so hard. I had other scrapes and some major bruising on other parts of my body, but no head trauma what-so-ever.
I guess I could talk about things like good air flow through the helmet, how easy it is to snap the shield on and off (I clean mine before every ride), I don't notice any major heat issues like and other poster, but honestly, all of these things are completely secondary after saving my life. Along with my family, I thank you for such a well made helmet Shoei.
Major selling points are the fact that the Shoei Qwest is both DOT and Snell approved and the helmet includes a 5 year warranty. A breath guard and chin curtain are included but I have not yet used these. I expect performance to be even better if I took the time to install the chin curtain.
The light silver is good for two reasons: (1) it is more visible to drivers than darker colors, and (2) it matches my bike. I originally ordered size XL but it was too large. Following the fit instructions from Shoei, I knew that I needed the next smaller size so I returned the XL and ordered the L. This was easy to do through Amazon, so thanks for that. I highly recommend this helmet.
Afterward, since it was now wrecked I decided to see if I could crack the helmet. I slammed it into the ground as hard as I could, hit it with a sledge hammer and slammed a big rock on it and no way could I crack it. Solid as a rock.
I am sure that Shoei saved my life. Features don't really matter as much as the quality of the build, because at the end of the day your lid is there to save your life and my Shoei did. Thanks for building a quality helmet Shoei!
