As you know, we normally don’t shamelessly plug ourselves but we have to make an exception this time around. We are well into riding season and motorcyclists everywhere are enjoying the feel of their new gear. One item which has stood out in the last month or so has been the Shoei Qwest helmet. It is no surprise that most of you have opted to upgrade to this helmet with its advanced ventilation performance and long-distance comfort. Noise reduction technology has been significantly upgraded as well so it’s an easy transition from your previous hat.
If you are in the market for a new helmet, we highly recommend giving the Qwest a try. We have a large selection of color combinations available at Extrememoto.com.

In the past couple weeks we have been answering a lot of your product questions through our blog. We wanted to give you a quick recap of the products we have featured lately. Below you will see an image of each product which will link you to the blog post. Your feedback has been great and we thought this would be a great opportunity for those of you which may have missed a few posts.
Every week we receive thousands of fan emails asking questions about our gear. By far, helmets are the item the majority of you ask about the most. Lately, we have been receiving a lot of questions regarding helmets that offer great comfort and ventilation. You can really tell summer is here.
Whenever comfort and ventilation come into question, there are two helmets which always top my list: The Shoei RF-1100 and the Shoei Multitec Modular. Both offer excellent doses of both.
The Shoei Multitec Modular is the complete package for security, versatility and convenience. It allows riders to perform tasks that would normally require the removal of a full-face helmet since it can instantly convert to an open-face configuration. The aerodynamic shape also allows for very quiet riding while providing great ventilation.
We are headquartered in Miami which means we deal with some very hot and moist weather most of the year. The Shoei Multitec Modular still keeps your head cool on our hottest days.
Take a look at some of the technical specifications of the Shoei Multitec Modular Helmet:
Shoei helmets have been in production since 1958, but their roots go back to 1954 with the founding of Kamata Polyester Co., which produced helmets for the construction industry. In 1960, Shoei’s founder, Eitaro Kamata, began to produce helmets for motorcycle racing, which were the first helmets to meet the Japanese Industrial Standard (JIS).
In 1965, Honda Motor Co. adopted Shoei’s helmets as their genuine helmets, increasing their popularity and availability. Despite their international success, Shoei remains a relatively small company with a workforce of under 500 worldwide.

Take a look at Extrememoto’s best selling Shoei helmet here.
By far, one of the most important pieces of equipment one can own as a biker is a helmet. With so many options on the market, how do you know you aren’t just buying into hype? That’s where we come in.
When we got our hands on the Shoei RF-1100 we were instantly impressed with its superb build. Available both in solid colors and with eye-catching designs, we began to feel that if there were any one helmet to own, this one should be it. Here’s our breakdown:
Previously, there was some belief that Shoei would be changing the internal shape of the RF-1100, but we quickly realized otherwise. One change we did notice was the helmet’s shell; it’s a bit larger than the RF-1000. Per Shoei, the RF-1100 comes in five different shell sizes.
When testing the chin and top vents, the RF-1100 opened and closed with ease which made for all-around good air flow. Without a doubt, there is a noticeable difference in air circulation when the vents are open and closed. Great news considering many helmets we’ve tested don’t appear to offer much of a difference in this area. If ventilation is a key selling point for you, this helmet has you covered.
The face shield was also impressive, equipped with all things necessary for a proper fit, snug feel and a trouble-free removal mechanism.
Quality and Score
The RF-1100 comes with an first-rate five-year warranty, meets the Department of Transportation’s Safety Standards and is Snell approved. Buyers will certainly get some bang for their buck with this purchase, as it is just as impressive as its pricier counterparts. We rate the Shoei RF-1100 as “Excellent”.
