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
Arai Saved my Head!! I was leaving on the first day of a ten day ride from Houston, Texas to Colorado. I made it about forty miles from home when I was hit from the side buy a Truck. I landed on the back of my head and right shoulder! I remember the helmet did not bounce? I have broken ribs and a hole in my lung but no injury to my head or neck! I have inserted some pictures that do not show the soft spot that I feel saved my head! I hate that this cost me my new Oriental 2010! I am hoping he has insurance to cover it! August 6, 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
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
I love this thing After not having ridden for 40 years I don't have a lot of helmets with which to make comparisons, but I love this thing. I opted for an Arai RX-Q black DNA to complement the red '12 Triumph Speed Triple I now ride. ...an excellent choice. Some years ago I when to watch a race at Barber in Alabama and an Arai rep was there and fitted me with the helmet shape that is now the RX-Q. But that was a few years ago. I used a tape measure to measure my head size and then bought the recommended size for my measurement (large). When I got it, it was so difficult to put on that I thought I had made a terrible mistake. It was so tight it was almost painful when I did get it on. However; I did remove the 5mm from the cheek pads in accordance with the instructions and that helped....a little. I've been wearing it (7,400 miles on the bike since mid March) and this thing fits like a glove right now. It's had time to mold to the exact size and features of my head and it just couldn't fit any better. It's comfortably snug and no amount of wind, no position of my head in the wind, causes it to wobble or shift. There is no buffeting at all...even when I'm looking left and right at the country side. It does have significantly more wind noise than I thought it would, or should, have....but then, I have nothing to compare it to. I had been advised to wear ear plugs and that turned out to be excellent advice. Wearing the simple, squeezable, earplugs in this helmet makes the bike much more comfortable to ride. I love this helmet. Great style, great protection, no buffeting. I highly recommend the RX-Q. August 24, 2014
Great Quality This is my first helmet purchase and I don't think I would go with any other helmet for future purchases. The style and comfort is second to none. I've been using this helmet to commute everyday for 3 months and it still looks like the day it came out of the box. When it comes to protecting your head, there is no reason to go with something cheap. I can wear this helmet for hours with no issues. Had to have an Arai helmet once I tried on my brothers. Everything else I tried on just didn't feel for fit the same. The comfort of the helmet is enough for me to justify the cost. You can't go wrong with an Arai. August 18, 2014

A shopper asked: Hi there,

How would you compare the RQ-Q to the Shoei Qwest? I am leaning towards the Qwest because I want the quietest helmet I can find! Also I am an XS size...and Arai doesn't make that shell specific size do they? My riding style is mostly sport-touring/ weekend trips on my ninja 400r.

Thanks!

SpeedTripleFan: I believe you mean the Arai RX-Q. I can't comment on the Shoei Quest but, I can tell you that Arai goes to great lenghts to fit their helmets very well and while not specific to XS, I wear a small and the XS shell is the same for the two sizes. So it is a small shell size with no "lolipop" styling. Just a word on noise since you mention about wanting a quiet helmet. No helmet will be super quiet unless perhaps the Shuberth C3 modular but, it comes with a big price. Noise levels will always be a compromise of a helmet that vents well and has sufficient padding and construction to minimize air entering the helmet (especially under the chin bar). While I may have not exactly answered your question, I hope I was able to help. Both helmets are quality products and good luck with your choice. Dec 23, 2011

RideorDie145: You really can't go wrong with either helmet. They are both great brands with plenty of features that should satisfy any needs you have. As far as noise goes they should be pretty similar (I have the RX-Q but have not tried out the Qwest). I switched to the RX-Q from an HJC CL-15 and the noise level was significantly decreased. And Arai does indeed offer an XS size, so no worries there! Hope this helps Mar 15, 2012

Stevan P: The RX-Q has 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Both are really quiet helmets and we believe you would be happy with either! Dec 14, 2011
