Looking for a full-face helmet with good ventilation. Have been looking at the shoei qwest but still looking around. What do you guys think?

Recently bought a Shoei Neotec modular and find the ventilation to be excellent even behind my XR's windscreen. Full open, the top vent does a great job of scooping in the air. If the quest has similar vents you will be pleased.

You will find most medium to high line helmets have adequate ventilation ports these days. What I suggest you look for is the right head shape. I have a Shoei and it is the worst I have every used when it comes to noise at highway speeds. Over the years it's buggered up my hearing but it's too expensive to trash so ear plugs need to be worn. The proper shape (they have three I believe) will help keep the wind noise down. If you can, take the helmet for a test ride before you buy.

Personally, I'm done with the experimenting on helmets. I've had cheap ones that fit poorly and rattle, I've had other expensive brands that had poorly designed features and breaking plastic parts. I've owned a bunch of Shoeis and they've always been excellent in every way. They also fit my head perfectly. I tried on a QWest earlier this year and the thing went on like sex.

I want one too!

I think their GT Air is their current gold standard for the venting. Frankly, I'm not sure how much difference those little cool slivers of air running over the top of my head make. If I need ventilation, I open the visor.

My ARAI SignetQ (long oval shape) fits my head and has good ventilation.
It is the only vented helmet I have used, and so cannot make any comparisions - but it is well ventilated.

I have a Shoei Neotec and it has good ventilation for warm weather and I also have an HJC.

One issue I have is keeping the visors clear on cold, raining, low speed roads.

To help fix this problem I added a heated visor to my HJC helmet. I haven't had a chance to try it yet.

If you get the heated visor you might want to also look at the automatic eye moisturizer. :ltr:

Not only does the C3 offer exceptional air flow, it does with while also being the QUIETEST helmet on the market today. However, you WILL pay a large price for those qualities

I have the Shoei Neotec as well. I primarily use it for extreme cold or very heavy rains. On the rare occasion I have used it during the summer. Like already said, it works very well, even behind the bike's wind protection.

Best helmet I have every placed on my head for any of the other extremes. IMHO.

You get what you pay for too. Keep that in mind.

I am using a Nolan modular. Tried to go with Scorpion but they do not fit me. I found a XXXL & the Nolan is twice the helmet. thumb up
Just remember, with a windshield, vent systems are not fully effective. Nice thing about my Vision is being able to lower the screen in warmer weather.
The Nolan comes with the addittional "pinlock" inner shield. It is impossible to fog up & no need for a heating system! thumb upthumb up

I currently have a Schuberth -best full face I've ever found to fit my fat head-that said, ventilation sucks behind the Vision's windshield/fairing & I can't wear it-love it on my other vic with no windshield-it is a bit noisy but most modular helmets have that issue to some degree.
