Arai RX-Q DNA Helmet - (Size LG Only)
Great helmet, crash performance was excellent!
Bought this helmet for one reason, crash protection. It performed flawlessly!
I slid about 100 feet on concrete pavement and the helmet did exactly what a quality helmet should do. I had no head or neck injuries, even after hitting the curb with my head and shoulder.
Yes the price is in the upper range, but how much is your melon worth? I like to be able to feed myself.
The pin lock face shield never opened and took a beating as well. This helmet literally saved my life.
I'll be replacing this helmet with another!

Great helmet. Worth every penny.
I bought this helmet a couple months and ridden plenty of miles with it. The first time I rode with it, I couldn't get over how smooth the air flow was. I have ridden this on various bikes such as a GS 1200, KTM 690, and a 899 Panigale. The helmet performs beautifully on all of them. I bought the helmet in a large, and when it got here it was just slightly too big for me. I knew I couldn't fit into a medium comfortably so I bought a replacement cheek pad set, which made the helmet fit perfectly. The other extreme pro of this helmet is the ear fitment. In some helmets I have tried on(Schuberth) there is a solid padding right where your ear sits, which over time causes extreme pain in my ear. In this helmet, there is a noticeable fitment around your ear where there is minimal pressure on your ear. iThe only downside that I have come across on this helmet is the odd airflow inside of the helmet when on the Panigale. Not all the time(which is odd), but some times, I get an odd "jet stream" of air into my right eye. Which gets slightly annoying. I have tried the chin curtain on the helmet, which helped slightly, but I still get some air in my eye.
Other than that odd thing, the helmet is GREAT!

BEST HELMET FOR ROUND OVAL SHAPES!
I recently bought the Arai RX-Q Retro 75. LOVE this graphic. I initially bought the Shoei rf-1200, but it was SUPER tight around the temple area. The RX-Q fit me PERFECTLY. Really quiet helmet. Thank gd I haven't had a chance to try it's protection; but definitely feels like an extremely durable helmet. Vents are great in the shield. I found it to break in a bit once I started wearing it more and the cushions got a bit more comfortable after shaping to my head specifically. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Another Great Helmet From Arai
I bought this RX-Q to replace my old Corsair V. I've crashed a couple Arai's in the past and the protection was always excellent, so I expect nothing less than that with this new one. The most important point for me is that these helmets are exceptionally comfortable. When you are pushing the pace, the last thing you need is to be thinking about some discomfort caused by your helmet. This helmet simply vanishes while you are riding - I can focus on my riding and my lines rather than worrying about some hot spot on my head.

Pay For Quality, Get Quality
The first Arai helmet I bought was an Agostini replica R7 back in 1998, and the helmet was fantastic. I replaced the interior pads once, and the helmet has worked without fail since day one. But like all good things, they must eventually come to an end. The helmet was starting to show its age, was wearing out and needed replacing. So I went ahead and replaced it with a new Arai. I have had other helmet along the way like a Shoei and a few others, and frankly none of them lived up to the Arai. Granted they were purchased for backups or spares for riding with my friends, but they didn't have the build quality or the comfort level of the Arai. I decided to go with the Arai RX-Q to replace my R7 and its everything I expected from an Arai helmet. Its light, feels sturdy, fits well, is easy to take apart in regards to removing the shield, the vents are easy to adjust while wearing and overall is the sort of quality and style I've come to expect from Arai. They make the best helmets hands down of any I've worn. You spend a little more on the helmet, but the functionality of it makes it well worth it. Replaceable interior, easy change out shield, air venting that you really notice doing its job, the helmet is a dream and worth every penny.

Less is More
I've been wearing a Corsair V for the last five years and I like this helmet WAY better. It feels lighter than the Corsair, and it seems to slip wind better. Those two things add up to much easier to ride with, seemingly quieter, experience. I didn't expect the difference to be as pronounced as it is. I've been wearing Arai helmets for 15 years and this is by far the best one yet.

I bought the rx-q on sale and I'm glad I did. The fit is perfect, me having more of a round head. The helmet is extremely light. The only complaint I have is that the visor fogs up a little bit when riding in colder weather, but other than that, an awesome helmet.
