Review: I love this helmet and all its features, being able to change the cheek pads made it a very comfortable fit, I have a hard time to find a helmet that is just the right fit and this is the one that you can tailor to your head !!!!! Great company to deal with also !!

The Qwest is the Best
This helmet is amazing! I enjoy taking long rides on my bike but always had a problem with comfort when it comes to helmets. But not anymore! My new Shoei Qwest looks stylish and is extremely quiet, among other things. I experienced one of my best motorcycles rides this past weekend and it's all because of this helmet. Usually my neck starts to bother me after being on the road for a long time but with this helmet I was comfortable my whole ride. It's hard to beat the quality you receive with a Shoei helmet, I would recommend this helmet to any rider who likes to go long distances in comfort.
