Pros:
Saved my life

Cons:
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.

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.

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!

This helmet makes it worth giving up the modular functionality. Its my second Qwest because the first was so good. Quiet as you'd like, leaving any modular wanting. No more ringing ears when earplugs aren't worn. This helmet is stable with only slight rise in the 120-140mph range. Best fit of any Shoei i've worn. I love the fit of an HJC but this feels perfect for my bean. A little more oval than the Korean manufacturer, but not as elliptical at most Shoei / Arai lids. Shield change is quick and easy. Easy to operate on the go and the liner feels like heaven. It's not just a helmet... its your life when things go wrong, and your hearing when things go oh-so-right!

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.

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.

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.

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!
