Since Arai’s inception, their RX Line of helmets has set an international standard for rider comfort and safety. The RX-Q is perfection incarnate, blending modern materials and safety features with decades of knowledge and racing heritage.

Arai RX-Q Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.9 5 313 313
Great field of vision, very comfortable been a long time arai fan, very happy with the field of view and fit. suprised by how quiet it is too - great buy! April 13, 2015
Nice Italian Helmet I've had two Shoei helmets in the past and needing a new helmet I wanted to try an Arai. The Arai RX-Q fits a whole lot better than my other Shoei helmets. Because of Arai's fitment guide I was able to go down one size and that made for a perfect fit on my head and it feels a lot lighter also . The Arai is not noisy, peripheral vision is good and I can wear my glasses when I have it on. And hey, I had to get an Italian helmet when I'm on my Vespa. Molto Bene Arai! March 30, 2015
Nice I ride a triumph street triple (fairly upright position). This helmet cuts through the wind nicely. It's been fairly cold, so I hope it lives up to its reviews of having nice ventilation. The visor is pretty easy to swap. The black looks great with gold visor March 2, 2015
Great airflow Extremely comfortable and light weight and it flows a ton of air. Only negative would be the D ring strap is not lined and it rubs on the jaw bone, but not a huge problem. Overall a great product. February 23, 2015
Excellent choice! Extremely satisfied! This helmet fits excellently and is well worth the cost. It is extremely comfortable and has plenty of airflow to keep you from fogging up the face shield. February 16, 2015
Nice helmet, hi-viz yellow with black still looks great, not like a bus. I like the Arai fine, the one real drawback is you can't really wear sunglasses with it as it doesn't have enough room. December 28, 2014
Replaced an Arai Quantum II The Arai Quantum II was the only helmet that really fit my head shape, so I was very sad when it was discontinued. I also have the Shuberth C3, which is ok for a couple of hours but has several problems. The Arai was the go-to helmet for extended travel. I called the Revzilla rep asking which helmet most closely resembled the fit of the Q2. He gave me two models, an HJC and this one. I checked both online and ordered the RX-Q. I'm so happy I called! The RX-Q fits just like my old Q2. I got the black pearl which is the sweet spot between matte and shiny. February 10, 2015
If you need a somewhat round head shape helmet and live in North America, get this now. I bought this helmet (in the Hi Viz Fluorescent Yellow) because of the company's reputation and because the RX-Q is one of the few remaining North American market helmets for my head shape. I have an ICON Airmada and Schuberth S2, yet this has already become my favorite helmet. It is the closest fit for my round head, has very good build quality, and it flows air very well. Background: the Airmada is famous for being one of the best bang-for-your-buck helmets as well providing tremendous air flow. The S2 is famous for being very quiet and having top-notch build quality. Unfortunately, neither of those helmets fit my round head shape. I developed hot spots after 90 minutes of riding in them - which was fine for most trips. Still, I needed a helmet for all-day riding. My head shape is round as is common in Asia. However, in North America and Europe, long oval and intermediate oval are more common thus Arai, Shoei, and others specifically distribute helmets for head shapes according to each region. The Arai Quantum II was perfect for my head shape (I tried on my friend's). Sadly, it was discontinued and its indirect replacement is the RX-Q which is in between a Round and Intermediate Oval. I had a choice: see if the RX-Q was round enough for my head, or buying an Arai from Japan which has several Round-shape models for her market. I chose the former option because I love Revzilla. How it feels: The fit of the helmet was slightly less comfortable than the Quantum II, but much better than the S2 and Airmada which are intermediate oval. No hot spots after several hours. The quality and vibrant Hi Viz paint-job on this is easily apparent, and motorists kept glancing at me. I appreciated that it came with silicone to lubricate the visor. Finally, the high airflow made riding on a warm day glorious given the numerous vents. At this price, some things bothered me like: a rough and scratchy chin strap, flimsy helmet bag, changing visors took too long, 3 massive logos which can't be removed, no retro-reflective materials anywhere, matte black vents and accents detract from the helmet's lines instead of being all solid Hi Viz like the other RX-Qs, and average quietness. The Schuberth addressed all of the above. Were it not for accommodating my round head shape, the S2 would be my favorite helmet, and I would have returned this one. With the Schuberth, I didn't need to wear ear plugs. With the Arai and Icon, I have to spend another minute or two dealing with them which is a hassle. February 9, 2015

Alex V: the best from my expirience Oct 23, 2014
Rosie R: Quality, fit, lightweight, quiet Jun 19, 2014
Chuck F: The RX-Q fits great, is comfortable and quiet. The bright yellow is obviously more visible. With traffic being as dense as it is where I live you do everything possible to be seen by distracted drivers. Every little bit helps. May 13, 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

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
