I got the Hi-viz hoping it was truly neon and it was. The pictures make it look yellow and it's not. It's crazy bright neon and matches my A-stars air hi-viz jacket perfectly.
I put the dark smoke visor on it and it just rocks now with no need for sunglasses. Plenty of airflow here in 95 degree humid Richmond, VA days
Yes, I recommend this product.

This is my first helmet, and I decided on the RQ-X because of their reputation and positive reviews. So far I'm not disappointed. It has been very comfortable with good airflow. Excellent visability! I just bought my wife one- hopefully she will like it as much as I like mine.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I upgraded from a Speed & Strength helmet and what a HUGE difference. This helmet is smaller and it gives me more confidence when I'm out riding and the main reason is because of it's design and stability that it adds when I'm riding at faster speeds. I definitely recommend it and I already have a friend ready to purchase one!
Yes, I recommend this product.

Unfortunately I bought mine before I heard about Revzilla.com. I could have saved myself $100. However, the helmet is simply awesome!

Unfortunately I bought my helmet for $620 before I heard about Revzilla.com and, although, that was expensive for me, it was worth every penny. However, for the price Revzilla.com has these helmets tagged its a steal. The helmet performs as expected for an Arai. My only Knit-pick would be the shell bridge across the chin/lips should have been designed to accommodate a little bit more space to allow communication mic installation. In fact that knit-pick goes for all manufactures providing full face touring designed helmets.

Bought this helmet based on the features and high ratings from expert opinions. Love the looks and performance while riding (weight, ventilation, etc.) but found it snug around the cheek area. So, I took advantage of the ability to remove 5mm layer from the cheek pads and that seemed to help a lot. However, I committed the cardinal sin of dropping my helmet from atop a ledge outside my place - about 6 feet high - and the 'pod' on one side that holds the face shield in place broke off. I'm hoping that Arai can send me whatever parts I may need to fix it, or otherwise make it right, because $600+ for something that breaks from gravity is not great durabitlity in my book. Otherwise, very satisfied with the product.

This is my first "expensive" helmet with a retail of over $500. At that price, you definitely expect more, and in almost every area, the RX-Q delivers. It's extremely comfortable, feels very light and the ventilation is outstanding. The fit & finish and general quality is excellent too. I simply cannot find any manufacturing flaws, which is great.
In the minus column, this helmet is definitely noisy. In fact my $99 Zero-Nine helmet is far quieter than this new Arai. After looking it over closely, I'm not sure why. The cheek pads under the ears offer a snug fit, and the helmet fit is perfect for my head shape and size. The neck pad at the bottom of the helmet is a little loose, but compared to other helmets I've had, it's not bad. It could be the numerous vents on the helmet, or the face shield, which uses a 1/2 cut design near the hinge, which may allow more air to rush around the ear area. Combined with the fact that there's inadequate room for helmet speakers, this helmet is a poor choice for those wanting a quiet ride or want to listen to tunes.
However as a functioning helmet, in every other way - it's perfect. I ding it one star for the noise...
Yes, I recommend this product.
