Arai RX-Q Oriental 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.


  • 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

Note:  2012 Oriental graphic has a Frost, satin finish.

Fits Round shapes well I bought this helmet primarily because this was the only helmet I could find that was shaped for round heads (Asians commonly have rounder heads). I can't really comment on noise level because I had tinnitus to begin with (so take this with a grain of salt), but while wearing this helmet noise just kind of seems to get amplified, so earplugs of some kind is mandatory for me. In short, this helmet is LOUD. As far as range of vision goes, there was still maybe 5% of my vision range obscured, but that shouldn't really matter. For the most part I can see very clearly. The faceshield will fog up sometimes, but as soon as I get going it disappears. This mostly occurs in the morning though. I never figured out how to use the locking mechanism that they showed in the booklet that tells you how to crack open the shield WHILE it is locked in, and iirc it was supposed to help with the fogging though I might be wrong. Just a little trivia regarding the graphic for this helmet, in case you guys didn't know: it is depicting the story of the Dragon Gate in Chinese Mythology, where if a Koi (or Carp) could jump over the waterfall (the Dragon Gate) they would transform into a Dragon.

Solid I've crash tested these before and owe my life to them. Amazingly strong, super comfy, great ventilation and easy to use features with gloves. August 10, 2015
Love the graphic! I just got my RX-Q DNA Graphic helmet and went for a ride right away. I like the ease of putting on and pulling off the helmet, very comfortable. The vision is very good and venting is good too. I notice that the helmet is slightly loud at speeds above 60 mph. I know the helmet is for upright riding, but during head checks at speed there is slight buffeting. Love the clean graphic of the DNA and the build quality and safety of Arai is top notch.

Win-Win When we added a full face helmet for my wife I wanted her to have an Arai and she wanted one that matched her TriGlide. This one was the perfect helmet, the metallic blue was very close to the Harley Big Blue Pearl and she has the protection of an Arai helmet. Win-Win! August 6, 2015
Design is a result of Function and it is beautiful I was always skeptical about Arais in the past. I had Nolans, Sharks in the past. Still have the Shark because it is badass. But for my dual use of cafe racer + sports bike needed something that could be aerodynamic, right fit and was modern. The shape of some AGVs, etc recently are really futuristic and had an eye on them. Last store visit I tried them all and finally decided to buy the Arai due to fitting. Finally wore it on my ride and all that they claim about the aerodynamics and ability to move your head for check is all brilliantly executed. Need I say am a fan of the egg shell for life!

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
Wanted a quiet, high quality helmet For the most part this helmet satisfied my requirement for a high quality helmet, quiet, good vision. I have a roundish head, 22" exactly, high cheekbones, a square jaw. While I have broken this size Small helmet in, it is still a small shell, and it squeezes my temples when I put it on. I removed the extra foam on the cheek pads, not a lot of difference. Also, the strap is short and I have to fiddle with it to get the flap snapped. It seems to be made for a tiny person. Once it is on, it envelopes my head firmly, without squeezing, and I no longer notice it. Good ventilation, shield doesn't fog much. I read somewhere that the velcro on the Sena speakers doesn't stick very well. This is true, I had to stick them on with the adhesive that came with the Sena kit. I have small ears, and sometimes they get folded against the speakers, ouch! So, from the classic head size fitment advice, Small should have been the one - but I wish I had tried the medium.

RX-Q matches the Corsair At the end of the day it's really quite simple. We are RX-Q matches the performance of the Corsair the difference being that you're riding in a much more upright position. If you never owned an Arai helmet, you should know that while it's the most expensive but it is quite simply the best helmet if the fit is right for you. My first ride with it was around Lake Superior in Canada with varying conditions in terms of heat and cold and rain and during the entire trip of 2400 miles, I never once experienced an issue with fogging Taking off and putting on the face shield does require a little bit of practice. I have seen more intuitive systems for taking off and replacing a shield, but the extra work is definitely worth it. If your unconvinced look at the other helmets over the last several years many of their improvements are based off of Arai including vent in the shield its self. July 20, 2015

PDXgearhoarder: It all depends on how thick and rigid or thin and malleable your temples are and what material they're made of. My ancient steel Raybans I can still manage to squeeze into the helmet. My Oakley Oil Rig and Gascan, forget about it. Like driving a railroad spike into my skull. Good god though, the helmet is gorgeous. Oct 4, 2012

Victoria P asked: Hello, I bought the Arai RX-Q matte finish helmet about a month ago. The visor fogs up a lot when it rains or when it's cold. The visor the helmet came with does not have the fog insert or the pin lock capability.

I am trying to buy a new visor with the fog insert but I am not sure which visor to buy. I am also trying to buy a second visor that is black tinted so that it can block out the sun. Could you please tell me which visor works with this helmet? Thank you.
