As Advertised Fits a little more snug then my Vector but should break in about right. Little tight around the top. Really appreciate the time and energy Revzilla/Anthony puts into video information. Almost as good as being in the store. Often times better info then you get from some brick and mortar stores in person. Thanks for all your research. April 14, 2014

Great helmet I never knew what I was missing until I tried this helmet on. It really makes a huge difference to wear something that's light, comfortable, has great air flow, and with the assurance that you're paying for the protection of your head. I didn't mind paying a little more money for these features at all. I have a slightly round head, generally I would consider it small to medium and the medium size fits perfect. It's also very quiet compared to other helmets I've had (all cheap sub $200). I usually still use earplugs or in-ear headphones and they fit much better than other helmets I've had. There is a space around your ears which I find very comfortable. Surprising amount of air flow, and the vented lens keeps it from fogging up at all. Overall I'm very happy with this helmet, I would buy it again. March 18, 2014
Arai RX-Q Excelent fit and finish! RX-Q Medium fit me perfect, very very quiet, features are excellent. Can't wait to wear it on extended ride! April 2, 2014
Great Quality and Customer Service. I seriously love this helmet. Before owning this helmet I had a Scorpion, which I HATED. It gave me headaches all the time and it would make my ride shorter because I'd find myself going home to take it off. So, that's when I decided to invest into a good helmet. Not only does this helmet fit wonderfully, the design is awesome and its super light weight. I got mine at the Revzilla store in Philadelphia. Not only are the employees knowledge about the products, their customer service is awesome and I will definitely being going back there again. March 30, 2014
For a big guy/fits great! Had a tone of helmets, i am a big guy with a 8 1/4 ball cap head, very round head. I am short and stocky not much neck, this helot is the best fitting, comfortable, and best view(because i can't turn my neck as much due to big body and stomach) it gives more view than any other helmet i have had. Plus i live on the coast, were fogging up is a big problem, not so with this helmet. February 24, 2014
Arai RXQ DNA This is an Arai RXQ helmet. There are many like it, but this is mine. Seriously, Arai is the best helmet for the money. All of the hype is true. The noise level, protection, widest peripheral, everything they say it is. Buy one, you won't be disappointed. February 17, 2014
Arai makes the best helmets at good value for the money I have ridden about 10k miles with the Arai RX-Q. I have ridden through torrential down pours, 100 degree plus heat, and near freezing all with great results. My only negative would be the air flow isn't always enough in very hot weather. This is a minor complaint. I can ride for hours and hours and be perfectly comfortable, the fit is near perfect. I considered the Schuberth, but couldn't justify the extra $$$'s. Great helmet and I love hi-viz! February 15, 2014

CHRISTOPHER G: I HAVE A 2014 HARLEY DAVIDSON SPORSTER 1200 CUSTOM AND MY BIKE IS ACTUALLY BIG BLUE PEARL I AM HOPING THAT THE COLOR WILL MATCH Feb 8, 2014
Gary P: The Arai RX-Q is the best Helmet Ive ever had. Fantastic product, Beautifully made, Perfect fit. Jan 27, 2014
David R: The pic shows a solid black helmet. I bought the diamond white.

I chose diamond white because of visibility, and the Arai because of it's reputation as the safest helmet available.

Rejean H: great helmet overall. comfort.price Jan 21, 2014
Gregorio V: Fit and quality. Went to the 2013 Progressive Motorcycle show in Long Beach and of all the helmets I was able to try on, the Arai RX-Q (and Defiant) fit me the best. The materials and craftsmanship were also impressive. Jan 14, 2014
Kyle S: Was trying to decide between the Schuberth SR1 Tech, the Shoei RF 1200 and the RX-Q. I was trying to justify $1000+ for a helmet and dark visor, but just couldn't bring myself to it. The RF 1200 looks great but none of the graphics impressed me (not a fan of flashy skulls or looking like darth maul) and none of the solids blew me away either. Owned several arais before, can't go wrong and the diamond blue really impressed personally. Its flashy but clean looking and at an affordable price. Jan 5, 2014
L U: Arai Quality and fit. I have owned Arai helments before - great fit for my intermediate oval head. Price is not bad for such a quality helmet. You only have one head - protect it with the best helmet you can afford. Sep 8, 2013
A shopper asked: Can I purchase the RX-Q with the thinner cheek pads or do I have to buy the helmet with the thicker ones and purchase the thinner ones seperate? Feb 9, 2012

Racer04: To directly answer your question, I don't know. I know they can be ordered as an accessory.

Mine came with the standard cheek pads. However, the stock pads are easily made thinner by removing different thicknesses of foam from them. The cheed pads are made so that this is an easy adjustment. The first thing I did was disassemble the helmet. I believe the first section of foam that can be removed is 5 mm thick.

For what it's worth, I initially thought my pads might be too tight. I left them as delivered. Don't know if I just got use to them or what, but almost 2000 miles later, they are still stock.

Great helmet, but I will be buying pinlock shield with insert to handle fogging in this cold weather riding.

Chris K: The RX-Q comes with a certain type of cheekpads for each size that you would buy. Unfortunately, you can't order one with anything other than "stock" cheekpads.

The good news is that the stock RX-Q cheekpads come with a 5mm peel-off layer. Just take out the cheekpads and remove the cover, and you will see this layer available to remove. This simulates going one size down in cheekpad.

Jkenny: You can fit them yourself, just peel a layer or two of foam off the cheek pads. They are made so you can self adjust without ordering additional cheek pads. I peeled 1 layer off on mine and it fits great! Jul 8, 2012

A shopper asked: I noticed that "TommyHolly" reveiwed the Arai RX-Q Helmet and mentioned that he uses the Sena but not how he has it attached. Thanks. Aug 1, 2011

TommyHolly: I have a Arai RQ-Q helmet (and an older Shoei RX-700)... I also recently bought a pair of Sena SMH-10 Bluetooth Headsets and they fit great!

The clamp on the side easily will fit the Arai helmet and pretty much any other helmet you can think of. There is a slight 1-2mm gap at the top of the headset where the helmet starts to curve in but that doesn't affect wind resistance, noise, or anything else. Attaching the earbuds inside of the Arai helmet required the supplied sticky velcro pads that came with the Sena because the material the helmet is made from doesn't work that good with velcro. The Shoei material worked fine with velco and I could attach the headphones anywhere without a stickypad.

Doghouse: ! used the adhesive pad that came with the SMH-10 on both helmets. 130 miles in the rain and no problem. the clamp sets into the helmet. I had J&M and love this system. Jul 16, 2012

CHAR;ES H: I am not familar with the Vector helmet in that I have not tried one on. The Arai line uses the same head demensions for determining the size for each of their modles. The Difference comes in the different modles fit different head shapes. I went from a Quantum 2E to the RX-Q and its a great repalcement as both helmets are for a round/oval head shape. The Vector is more intermediat oval and though the circumference of the XL Vector and RX-Q may be the same, the fit won't be the same. I tried on lots of helmets on multiple occassions and though the Arai Defiant is supposed to fit the same head shape as the RX-Q I found it to be more oval in shape and not as good a Fit for my Quantum 2/RX-Q head. If you ride a in a 3/4 to uparight riding position the Defiant might be a better choice for you. I loved my Quantum and the RX-Q is even better. Mar 21, 2014

Per K: Hi, I've owned the RX-Q for a couple of years now and absolutely love the fit. I got it for a cross country ride (east to west) and couldn't be more happy with it for the rare 8+ hour days. Great air flow, lightweight, & quiet at 70mph.

I can't comment on the fit of the Vector, but I have a pretty round head which The RX-Q conforms to well. The cheek pads support upward nicely for even balance around the whole helmet. Hope this helps. Revzilla has awesome customer service!

Rafal C: Hello there,

The best way to answer this is to try on the helmet and then but online. I can tell you that it is significantly lighter and more aerodynamic than my Arai quantum2.

Good luck!

A shopper asked: It seems the white helmets are mixed between diamond white and white. I do not want a glaring white helmet, so which white, the diamond white or white, is the off-white?? (Color on this rx-q page may be reversed because it seems the white is really off-white.)

Please advise.
Thank you.

Rey I asked: Can the retractable chin spoiler be used effectively as a chin curtain? I'm looking for a relatively quiet helmet that will prevent dust and debris from coming up into my helmet on the road. Sep 23, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Steven R: Not really. I have used the chin spoiler to keep my chin warm on chilly days, but from my experience the chin spoiler is there to settle an aerodynamic instability in the helmet. At some head angles, you can get some minor buffeting and lowering the chin spoiler settles this out. It won't keep dust out of the helmet. This helmet needs to flow air to keep the visor from fogging, and to keep you breathign; so there is no way to keep dust out. In terms of wind noise, I wouldn't call this a particularly quiet helmet, nor would I call it a noisy one. Pretty much average in that regard. Always wear ear plugs. Sep 23, 2013
Reply to Steven Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Scott S: I ride a KLR everywhere with this helmet and have never had issues with dust or debris. I use a foggy mask when it's needed and goggles when the visor is up. I don't think the chin spoiler makes much of a difference in either position, but I'm not traveling at speeds over 50mph much either. My fiancée tried three helmets and ended up with this model as well. We are happy. It's the quietest helmet I've ever had, never found a need to use the earplugs I carry. Hope that helps, ride safe.

A shopper asked: Hi,
Is it true that generally Arai shells are more compact than Shoei's for the same size helmet?....
Also, I have a round head and 56 cm. Do I go by the chart and get the small RX-Q?
Thanks
Jan 3, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
James123: It depends because I ordered the Qwest before this one. The small shoei felt like it was a bigger shell size because there there is more space in the front of helmet. Also the small shoei uses the same shell size as the medium so it kind of felt bigger. But honestly the shell sizes are relatively small compared to other helmets I looked at to begin with.

A shopper asked: I know that Arai has manufacturer's dates and a 5 year warranty but could you tell me is the 5 years from the date of manufacture or first use? I have an RX-7 Corsair I need to replace and was curious about the helmet lifespan. Sep 6, 2012
