Shoei qwest - quiet
« on: November 30, 2011, 03:41:01 PM »

 Just tried my new helmet and been out for a couple of runs. As is the case, different screens and turbulence make a big difference... Firstly went out on the crossrunner with standard screen... Helmet doesn't have whisper kit fitted yet so is as it comes out the box. Impressively quiet. I always normally wear ear plugs but not for this test.... 90mph and whilst noise had increased i wasn't in pain with my hearing and not getting my teeth. The vents work nicely. Open top vents and u can feel the breeze over your scalp. No whistles from anywhere on the helmet. the sprung visor certainly works and maintains a seal on the helmet apperture seal. Just out of curiosity i fitted the touring screen back on. Second run. a lot lot louder. no where near my caberg but still loud enough that at 80 mph it was painful. Some owner reviews have said with the whisper kit its quieter than a schuberth.. cannot comment on that. but the qwest is a very quiet helmet. Its worth trying... Paul

Am starting to think about a new helmet for next sumer. Currently use an Arai Chaser - bould like a flip helmet - Shark Evoline flips all the way over and can be ridden as open face - but so far when I have tried one on I have found it is a poor fit (medium too tight, large too lose). Also like the feel of the Scorpion 900.

Ive just fitted the whisper kit to the shoei Qwest.....  The difference just in the house with how it cuts noise down is remarkable.  Itching to get out on the bike to try it now, but sadly the depths of winter are now upon us.....  Need a fine day....

 You should try moving down to the civilised South mate. Cold but sunny here today. I had an enjoyable ride into work (from where I'm posting this) at lunch time

The frozen north aye  :190:

Is the whisper kit the stretchy thingy that you fit round the bottom of a helmet ?

I've tried the Quest today at HG and I was very impressed with the fit. Shoei have a reputation for comfortable lids and this one is no different. It is very light compared to the Multitec and reading your review helped me set my mind on it. I love the whisper kit especially on winter as it keeps some of the  cold air out. I didn't know the Quest would have it as well so that's a bonus. Also the pinlock insert is a lot larger compared to other helmets.
