Just purchased the Scala Rider Q2 Pro and installed in my helmet. Took just a few minutes for the install, the paired the Q2 to my cell phone. Calls are clear with the two speakers mounted in the helmet and I'm told that I am heard with equal clarity. The FM radio will help pass the miles as they go by.
I'm anxious to get a bluetooth enabled GPS that I can pair to the Scala for voice command directions.
The Scala Rider Q2 is a well thought out unit for motorcycling is really at the center of your electronic accessories.

The Shoei Pin_lock shield system just flat works. I ride a 22 mile commute each morning before the sun is up and never have a fogging problem.

Since I've received these Held gloves, I've ridden in temperatures as low as 24 degrees and at the end of a 22 mile commute, it was a relief to arrive with my fingers feeling cool, not frozen. In the rain, my hands stayed completely dry. These gloves fit tight, so order accordingly. I am satisfied with this purchase.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Shoei Qwest Solid Helmet The Shoei Qwest Motorcycle Helmet was built with a focus on minimizing helmet weight, optimizing fit for comfort and protection and lowering noise levels to bring a new level of comfort to touring helmets. Featuring a slightly round oval internal shape, the Qwest helmet is manufactured with 4 individual shell sizes to keep the helmet as low-profile as possible. The smaller the helmet shell, the lighter the helmet weight. The Shoei Qwest Helmet also uses the Shoei's CW-1 visor technology with the Q.R.S.A system. This system guarantees a tight seal at the faceshield by pulling the shield back to contact the opening seal evenly. The Qwest also touts an extra-wide viewport for additional peripheral vision so you can more easily take in the world around you. Aerodynamic Shell Design Aerodynamic properties are maximized through extensive wind tunnel and feedback from professional riders Dual-Layer EPS liner enhances impact absorption and ventilation Four shell and six EPS liner sizes increase fit options that help to comfortably fit most head sizes Molded air spoiler reduces drag and lift as well as diminishes weight pressure on the neck while riding at high speeds Ventilation System Upper Air Intake Vent is positioned to maximize air volume into the helmet interior Large upper intake vent positioned to maximize performance in high wind conditions Easy to operate large lower intake vent Lower air intake/defroster vent reduces shield fogging and increases ventilation Rear/neck outlets allow for effective air exhaust Breath guard and chin curtain are included Lightweight Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus (AIM+) High performance fiber materials are combined with extremely elastic organic fibers to create a shell structure that is ultra lightweight, rigid and resilient Interior 3D center pad and multi-layered, polyurethane foam cheek pads Cheek pads are replaceable or removable for maintenance Eyeglass-compatible interior Standard chin strap clip neatly secures chin strap CW-1 Shield and Q.R.S.A. System Q.R.S.A. (Quick-Release Self-Adjusting) base plate allows for tool-less shield removal and installation Spring-loaded base plate pulls the shield back to contact the window beading evenly and ensures a proper seal Scratch-resistant coating 99.9 protection from harmful UV A and B rays Optional, CWF-1 two-dimensional Pinlock equipped racing shields with tear-off posts are available (sold separately) Optional, CW-1 Pinlock prepared shields are available to accommodate Pinlock Fog Free Inserts (sold separately) The CW-1, three-dimensionally curved shield is both wider and taller than the CX-1V it replaces A pre-set lever can easily lock the shield in place to prevent the shield from opening unexpectedly, as well as prop the shield open to increase airflow Additional Features Construction AIM+ (Advanced Integrated Matrix Plus Multi Fiber) Weight 3.644 lbs / 1,653 grams (approx, for Size Medium) Standards Snell-M2010, DOT Please Note The vents on the Brilliant Yellow helmet are black, not yellow as shown in product photo. Note Due to manufacturer restrictions, the Qwest Helmet and other Shoei products can only be shipped to addresses within the United States

This helmet fit perfectly the first time I tried it on. At speed, it's quiet and the airflow is completely adjustable. Shape of the helmet allows for upright sport touring riding with perfect vision through the faceshield. Weight of the helmet was absolutley unnoticeable. I'll be ordering one for my wife soon.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable, Great Value
Yes, I recommend this product.
