The CW-1 Visor System
The new Shoei CW-1 Visor is the perfect companion to the fntastic Q.S.R.A System. With an enlargement of both horizontal and vertical dimensions, increasing the overall aperture results in a much vaster field of vision and a far greater comfortable riding experience.
Shoei's visor is made of a strong polycarbonate material, their long history and experience in molding this material guarantees ultra clear vision with absolute minimum distortion.

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) Systemarrow
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.

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 Visorarrow
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 Lockarrow
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.
