Arai RX-Q Oriental Helmet - 2010 4.9 5 310 310
Helmet all that I expected and more A firm fit but extremely comfortable. While a little noisy a much better fit for me than my old Shoei. Service delivery from Revzilla outstanding with regard to speed to New Zealand and quality of packaging - outstanding. January 30, 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
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
AWESOME I highly recommend this helmet. I traded up from an ICON Airmada to this and the amount of features alone for airflow in incredible. This thing is so well balanced that your head doesn't feel bogged down. You must ensure you have a proper fit. Go to a dealer and do your due diligence by having them size you up. Then come and order from Revzilla :). Seriously though, I was riding with a helmet too large for me for almost two years before I decided to get measured and getting an Arai that's properly fitted makes all the difference with airflow issues.

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
My Go-To Hot Weather Helmet This is my second Arai helmet - while they are noisier than my other helmets - the air flow is excellent and I am very comfortable in hot weather. In the fall my face can go numb on colder days so I switch to my other brand helmets. Got a Triumph Daytona this summer and this Union Jack design goes perfectly with it! December 14, 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
