Arai RX-Q Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.9 5 296 296
Arai RX-Q Got this helmet for my wife after getting Arai's Signet-Q for myself. Both have been excellent purchases and a huge improvement over previous helmets, particularly in terms of comfort over multiple 8-10 hour days on the road. The RX-Q has excellent ventilation, and the smaller overall shell size (for the same helmet size) and light weight mean less fatigue at the end of a long day battling head and cross winds. Overall, very glad to have selected this helmet. The hi-viz color is a big plus, too. September 29, 2014
Excellent fit and visibility. The saying of, "you get what you pay for", holds true for the RX-Q helmet by Arai. Sizing per Revzilla's website chart was exact, I ordered a medium and it's more comfortable than any other helmet I've worn or owned! Noise levels are fine, I have a Fat Bob with Cobra Slip On Mufflers and the helmet tones it down just enough that I can still hear surrounding traffic etc. in summary, if light weight, extreme comfort and DOT + SNELL ratings are your requirements then this helmet is a perfect choice.

Great Helmet, versatile, excellent internal airflow and external aerodynamics. High Quality and Highly Recommended. Quality: Arai helmets are of very good or excellent quality. Fit: I bought the RX-Q model to fit my Intermediate Oval to Long Oval Head Shape. I tried the Signet Q but it was a just a tiny bit too long for me. Airflow: The Airflow features are excellent and manageable. Top of helmet flow, face shield flow and around the mouth/chin level can be opened or closed. Rear of helmet outflow can be open or closed. Rear outflow open enhances overall flow over the top of the head. Padding: Interior padding is snug and fit well for me. There are different padding sizes if you need it. I have not experienced any discomfort from the padding or the strap. Fogging: The helmet has not fogged internally while riding except one time when we had 100% humidity and I was riding through the clouds on a rainy, cloudy, 100% humidity afternoon on the BlueRidge Parkway. Face shield choices: There are a variety of face shield choices from clear to dark smoke and grey, amber, blue and purple mirror shields as well. I ride with the light smoke face shield during the day and carry a clear shield in my hard bags in case I am riding after dark. I find the light smoke fully adequate to dampen the effect of bright sun though others may prefer different colors. This may be more of a preference point. The clear is for night or for cloudy grey days. Switching the face shield is very easy. The Revzilla video instruction is great. Watch that once and it is quick and easy to change shields thereafter. Face Shield Field of View or Visibility. Visibility side to side and top to bottom is excellent. This is appreciated when in a full crouch position in the fast and tight twisty corners. Wind Buffet/Aerodynamics. Riding behind a touring wind shield there is no buffet even when your head is up in the wind. Behind a sport windshield the air hits your body and the helmet unless in a tight tuck. The helmet is very aerodynamic and when your head is in normal straight ahead or cornering position, the helmet feels very smooth in the air. I only feel the pressure of the air on the helmet when changing lanes at high speed on a freeway and looking hard left or right to check for cars. Value: I find the Value is good +, but it is tough to give a higher end helmet a 5 on the bang for the buck score. Overall: I think Arai makes an excellent product and I highly recommend the line. The RX-Q and Signet Q line seem ideal for the Sport, Sport Tourer to Tourer rider and works well in a traditional sport crouch position. I like the versatility of the helmet. I ride both a 2007 Honda VFR 800 and a 2009 Harley Davidson Road King. Two very different rides, but both very fun in there own way. October 13, 2014
protection, viability, comfortable, light weight and style important in choosing a perfect helmet for me. I love this helmet that I have chosen. I call it perfect. I love that the visibility with the helmet on is like not having a helmet on but you are protected and comfortable all at the same time. There will always be a better one, one day but right now this is perfect. September 9, 2014
Fantastic Helmet This is my first helmet and I chose well. I got the Blue Diamond Large sized helmet and it fits my head perfectly. There are no pressure points and I did not have to adjust any cheek pads on the inside. It is very lightweight and the features seem very well thought out and executed. The protection is typical Arai, top of the line. The viewing angle is excellent - much wider on the periphery than any other brand I have tried. I highly recommend this helmet. September 9, 2014
Great piece of gear This helmet sets the benchmark for me. I live in Florida and the weather is pretty hot and/or humid most of the year.I wanted a helmet that vents efficently and doesn't create any weird forces on my neck when doing blind spot checks at speed. It fits me perfectly but i wouldn't trust the manufacturer's sizing chart or get all caught up in head shape definitions. Use your head (pun intended). In other helmets i wear a medium and according to the Arai charts i should as well, when i got a medium there was just a little too much give. Trust in the excellent customer service for brand insights and free returns if needed but above all try moving the helmet when wearing it, IMHO that's the best method to know it fits you. Visibility is great as with any Arai and the helmet is quiet enough for me at all speeds. It will fool you into thinking it's lighter than it actually is when wearing it. I won'even try to describe the graphics; it has been described by people in the know as possibly the most visually stunning helmet ever made by Arai yet i'm sure some guys are going to second guess sporting a helmet that has some pink accents on it. To that i've got only four things to say: 1- If you worry that much about what people say about you, you've got bigger problems. 2- If it makes you happy get it and man up to your choice. 3- Notice next time you're at a bike hang out; you won't see 5 of these on other people's heads or bikes, it's exotic looking. 4- Most important of all is that motorist will probably only see the highest point on your bike, to maximize your appearance it's better to be reflective and catchy. I don't ride my Ducati in the rain so i can't intelligently speak about rain induced fog in the visor or about the combination of pinlock pocket and silicon seal remedies some other have needed with the brand. Overall a solid helmet, one of the safest rated (DOT and SNELL 2010) albeit a little on the pricey side, but for the admission price you get the whole package fit, drudi performance design w/ excellent finish, quality and above all world class protection. I highly recommend the RX-Q September 8, 2014
11,000 Mile Experiment. Bought this helmet for two reasons. First, to have the best protection and comfort. Second, the styling and paint. After riding for more than 11,000 miles with this helmet on, overall I am pleased. It is a bit pricey, but performs well. Tends to be a little noisy around the pucks, and the face shield removal is a bit quirky. Very resistant to buffeting when head is turned at speed. Good control of air flow. Peripheral vision is superb. High quality. My head is worth it. September 5, 2014
My First Arai This first Arai, I have always been a Shoei guy, this is my first Arai. The quality and feature is great, it is more comfortable than my Shoei, and I guess it is about how my head fits. I had to purchase a separate pinlock face shield, since unlike Shoei, it doesn't come with one. The face shield locking mechanism is not great, I consider that a poor design. Shoei got it right on that. Over all it is a good product, but at that price, I think it should be perfect in all areas. September 2, 2014

A shopper asked: I ride a yamaha xt 225. The riding position on any enduro style bike is very upright. Is this the correct model for an upright riding position? Thanks Aug 30, 2013

Kevin L: I ride a cruiser (very upright) and this RX-Q model works great for that. Their Corsair model is more for racing position, which is why I didn't choose that one. The airflow is really good and it never fogs up. It is the most comfortable and aerodynamic helmet I have had - head checks into the wind are easy and I forget I am even wearing it. Some people complain about the noise level. I wear the disposable ear plugs half way inserted to take the edge off wind noise anyway, so I do not find it problematic... I have had a helmet with bad airflow, and I will take a little noise and supreme comfort over that any day... hope this helps... Sep 3, 2013

John B: I ride a TU250x with a fairly upright riding position as well and like the helmet very much. I do find, however, that if I lower my head slightly, there is less buffeting. I am just talking about a few degrees difference, nothing extreme. This is something I notice mainly when wind pressure is pushing my head back.

For an enduro, consider the XD4 as well.

Dan H: Yes. I ride an HD XR1200, which reminds me of a big dirt bike, in terms of riding position. RX-Q is best when upright. If I really get on it on the freeway, I will tuck and I find the RX-Q gets noisy then.

p.s. I commute and believe the hi-viz helps make you more visible.

Brandon W: I sit pretty much upright on my FZ1. I feel like upright to just a little bit leaning is the right range for this helmet. I like it. Ventilation is good for a full face road helmet. At speed there is some wind noise from the side pods covering the visor hinges. Sep 3, 2013
Reply to Brandon Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Richard P: I believe so. This was specifically designed to be a top quality helmet, but for a much more upright seating position. I have both this and the Corsair V, and there is a noticible difference on how the air flow is. You will LOVE that helmet. Sep 4, 2013

Christopher C: Yes, I ride a Concours with handlebar risers so I'm riding pretty upright. The noise level is quite low, the venting works well and the aerodynamics are quite good in that position. No buffeting or pulling that I've noticed. Sep 10, 2013

Carlos B: I ride a 1200GS and jave just arrived from a three week trip ( 4300 miles) to Newfoundland and Labrador. It was my first trip with rhe Arai RXQ. The helmet is light, perfect for an upright position and performed beautifully. Sep 3, 2013

Charles N: All of my bikes are upright position bikes and this helmet works very well for my needs. It is the most comfortable helmet that I have ever owned and has excellent side vision. Sep 3, 2013

Nathaniel A: I have an NC700x which has an upright riding position too. I find it works for this riding position. Especially since I lean forward a bit at high speeds anyway. Sep 3, 2013

Mars W: I ride a ZX14R mostly upright - this helmet is perfect for that riding position. In fact, the wind noise is reduced significantly when upright. Sep 4, 2013
