Qwart Phoenix Standard helmet in gloss white (QWP003)
Product InformationWe first saw the Phoenix helmet last November at the international motorcycle trade fair in Milan. It made quite an impression on us. Partly because of its looks, but also because of the ability to customise it. All the trim pieces, including the entire chin section, can be changed to create a helmet that looks very different to the base model. These pieces are not all available yet, but they’ll be coming through soon.
Made from carbon, the Qwart weighs in at just 1,190 grammes. It’s got to be said that it’s unlikely to be anybody’s first and only helmet. It’s more about Sunday mornings and special occasions commuting or touring. You can expect it to be a bit noisy, and without a high-tech rubber seal around the visor, it probably won’t perform too well in heavy rain. But nobody can deny that it’s a funky looking helmet. Beneath the chin piece, there’s a trellis frame that gives the front end of the helmet its strength. Now the helmet is not certified to be worn without the front panel in place, but clearly some people will wear it like this anyway for an airier feel. At £600+, the Phoenix is not cheap, but is is a truly original and different design. Clearly the folk at Qwart think it could be the helmet that replaces the Ruby. There is one important issue with the Phoenix, however, and that is the fit. It won’t work on everybody. We’ve already found that some people need to go up a size.
If you’re interested in the helmet, your best course of action would be to visit us in Guildford to try it on. We’ve all the sizes, although some colours have not yet turned up.
