Arai RX-Q Hi-Viz Helmet

The Arai RX-Q (the round-oval shaped cousin to the Signet-Q) is the product of a racing lineage going back to the late 1970’s. 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. The result are features like an eyeport designed to maximize peripheral vision, an aerodynamically tuned outer shell and a beautifully crafted and ultra comfortable liner. All these features, combined with industry-leading protection, provide riders with an unmatched level of safety and comfort.

Features:

  • Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell
  • Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V
  • Same face shield as the Corsair V
  • Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape  as Quantum 2)
    • Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads.
    • New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better.
    • Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet
  • Advanced ventilation
  • Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape
  • Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics
  • Retractable chin spoiler
  • Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll
  • One piece bottom edge trim
  • Race helmet for the street
  • 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL).
  • Meets or exceeds SNELL 2010 and DOT specifications
  • 2010 Model

NOTE: The pearl black listed for this product is a standard gloss black helmet, there is no metallic in it

Arai RX-Q Hi-Viz Neon Helmet 4.9 5 322 322
Comfortable helmet but very noisy Extremely comfortable helmet but for the price you should not have the loud wind noise. My cheaper HJC is much quieter and $350.00 cheaper. I would have given it 5 stars but it is way to noisy for a $500.00 helmet. June 13, 2015
Nice helmet Fit nicely. Felt tight for first hour then great. As soon as a move at all the air movement is great. Pretty light for a full face helmet too June 7, 2015
You get what you pay for After researching helmets for a few months, my search was narrowed, thanks to Revzilla's exceptional detailed product breakdown videos, to the Arai RX-Q and the Shoei RF1200. I like the shape and look of the Shoei, and the price is reasonable, as are the safety ratings. However, after watching all the detailed breakdowns of the Arai RX-Q, and watching the Isle of Man YouTube videos and seeing Arai as the primary helmet on the riders, and the price being a bit more steep, which can lend itself to appeal to less of a crowd than the Shoei, I found the Arai to be most desirable helmet. My father, whom I admire and miss dearly, rode in an Arai Helmet. And I just like the look of the Arai helmets better. As for the quality of the helmet: the paint/powder coat is fantastic. So much so, in fact, I could put it in a glass case in my foyer and display it as art. The materials have a high-end feel, and we're very carefully crafted. It's a very round helmet shell. As for fitment: Revzilla has made it almost too easy to find the correct size. I measured my head, and learned that my head measures to require a size Small helmet. (I'd been wearing a size Large Shoei RF-800... Quite a difference) The size Small fits my head perfectly. It is snug on my cheeks, but not too much that I can't chew gum or speak. Trust the size chart!!! As for while I ride: Road noise can be loud at times, no question. It's not a very sound-deadening helmet, but it's considerably quieter than the helmet I was used to (see above) At highway speeds it sounds windy, because it is windy. You'll really feel in tune with the weather, which in many ways is a gift. Head checks: when looking behind you the helmet doesn't feel like it's parachute has deployed, it is so round and uniform that it's almost no different from looking straight on! What a blessing! Visibility: is very good. Only limitations are my natural periphery, the helmet exceeds my periphery. Style: you're gonna look cool. You will likely be the minority, wearing such an expensive helmet, so that's cool. People who are in the know will see you wearing an Arai helmet and think, "whoa that's a sick helmet, they must really be into riding." That's pretty cool. Safety: it's got the highest ratings possible. Another feature that is cool. If you take a tumble, your head is going to be as safe as possible in this helmet. I trust this helmet and recommend it. I have the diamond black color with a gold mirror visor. And I've really come to enjoy both. June 17, 2015
The Best! This is my second Arai helment. They are in a league of their own. The Best! June 15, 2015
Beautiful design Love the design on this helmet. Fairly light, good noise reduction however wind noise is average. Helmet is extremely round. Faceshield easy to install/remove once get use to, however aftermarket Faceshields are very difficult to install, would suggest OEM sheilds only. Great helmet. June 8, 2015
Sweet looking helmet, noisier than expected Love the look of this helmet! I have gotten so many great comments on this helmet. The paint is amazing and looks great with my bike! Very comfortable as expected with a premium price point helmet, it is however noisier than I would have hoped for, but I wear hearing protection for long hwy rides. I requested fitment help via email from Revzilla and their advice was spot on! My head measurement was smack dab in the middle of size M & L, they recommended the M and I was glad I went that direction as I would not want it to fit any looser than it does. Thanks for the superb advice Brandon W. June 2, 2015
Beautiful, Comfortable Helmet Love this helmet! I purchased with the SAI purple mirror face sheild. The helmet looks fantastic. The helmet is light, comfortable and provides a reasonable amound of airflow and noise reduction. My only trouble is that at high speeds/or windy/windy days the helmet pushes back abit into my nose. (its not too big, its just the way it fits my head/face). I also own a ARAI Cosair and this doesn't happen. May 25, 2015
Arai is top of the world Look.... It's an Arai and it's just great ...... Period If you are Asian like me.... Buy this ! RxQ oriental matte graphic My head measures 58cm.... I went with size M... I always downsize and they will break in and be perfect Every rider should have an Arai helmet , this is my third May 6, 2015

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

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

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

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
