The new CW-1 Visor with Q.R.S.A. System

SHOEI's release of the CX-1 visor included technical innovations that quickly became de facto industry standards and have been adopted by many other manufacturers.

During the development of the next generation full-face SHOEI helmet we decided to re-think the design of the CX-1 as well.

As a result we came up with the CW-1 featuring Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self Adjusting), a brand new concept designed from scratch with nothing in mind but maximum customer satisfaction.




Q.R.S.A. (Quick Release Self Adjusting) System

Several factors have to be considered when choosing the perfect position of the opening/closing axis of a visor. The visor angle position has to guarantee an easy and convenient opening of the system as well as a perfect position of the visor to the shell when closed. These contradictory requirements are almost impossible to meet with a fixed axis system.

The perfect solution of this problem is our new Q.R.S.A. System where a variable axis is moved back and forth by a coil to attain the perfection position.

The mechanism enables the Pinlock Fog-Free lens to be moved upwards and improve the closing contact with the window beading even more.



Newly Developed CW-1 Visor

The CW-1 Visor is the perfect companion to the Q.S.R.A System. An enlargement of both horizontal and vertical dimensions results in a significant larger field of vision and a much more comfortable riding experience.

The visor is made of polycarbonate. SHOEI´s long history and experience in molding this material guarantees ultra clear vision with minimum distortion.

Almost 100% of UV rays are blocked and a special hard coating is applied to the surface to protect the visor from scratches.





Characteristics of Q.R.S.A.+CW-1 Visor

Substantially Extended Upper Vision of Pinlock Fog-Free Lens

Especially sporty riders with a riding style leaning forward close to the motorcycle need an  extended upper vision. With this in mind the new shape of the Pinlock Fog-Free Lens has been designed.

The Combination of a 2-layer construction with an air chamber between  the visor and lens together with a special anti-fog coating results in a Fog Free view even under difficult circumstances such as rain or cold weather.





Pre-set Opening and Visor Lock

The Q.R.S.A. System features SHOEI’s own visor lock and pre-set lever for easy handling and maximum fog protection. The system can be closed or opened easily to allow a maximum circulation of air between visor and lens.
