Arai RX-Q Vantage Helmet
This is my second Arai helmet, I have the XD-4 as well. I bought the RX-Q DNA-White to replace my Icon Alliance. WOW! The difference between the 2 are night and day. Yes Arai is a high priced item, but so worth it. The fit and finish is top notch. Air flow is amazing, overall quality is spot on. I have a long shaped head and was worried I may need to go to the Signet-Q, but the RX-Q fit perfect. Size is true, in fact I needed to remove some of the padding in the cheek pads. (Arai has adjustable cheek pads). Would I recommend the RX-Q, oh yeah! I added the dark shield and it now looks so cool…lol
Side Note: Shield removal is a little scary at first. See youTube, “RX-Q shield removal”, for a demo.

Arai RX-Q great value great helmet!
I bought two of these Arai RX-Q helmets, one for me and one for my wife. Mine is a small and my wifes is an extra small. Both helmets fits very well and are confortable. This helmet offers great vision and stays cool while riding. The interior is nice and soft and the emergency cheek pad removal system is a nice feature. We bought the Dimond White and they are flawless and look great. Fit and finish is second to none. These helmets are light and very well balanced to the point you don't even feel them on your head.
I highly recommend this helmet.

Product fits and feels great.
I have been searching for a helmet for while trying on different ones. Unfortunately many of the bike shops are limited in the types and if they do have it, they don't have the right size. You can definitely feel the quality once you put it on. It feels very sturdy and the padding is very soft compared to many other helmets. To me, the fit is intermediate oval, but is a bit rounder than others like the Shoei Rf-1100 and Qwest. I had a small gap between the center of my forehead with the other helmets, but this one feels snug and fits properly. It is a little on the pricey side, but better to spend the extra money to get one that fits and feels great than be miserable with one that doesn't.
Also great customer service by Revzilla to help me!

I like it a lot, lightweight & stylish although it pinches at the cheeks. I put a sliver mirrir visro/ faceguard in and it looks fantastic. Quite quiet & aerodynamic too. I have ordered another, similar one

Perfectly Balanced - Hi-viz Yellow w/ Smoke Visor
Had the helmet 5 months now, ridden in 95+ (F) degree heat and down to 35 (F) degree cold in January. The helmet functions very well in both by using a combination of the vents. I'm still fogging up at stoplights a bit no matter what when the temp is around 35 (F# in the morning though. Goes away quickly once I start moving.
I got the hi-viz yellow and it is indeed neon yellow. It's not regular yellow like the picture suggests. The hi-viz matches my Astars TGPR Air Hi-viz jacket perfectly.
I bought the dark smoke visor since I only ride during the daytime #noob) and it looks killer and sees really sharply too, even around sunrise and sunset. It's basically no darker than dark sunglasses.
The helmet doesn't buffet at all and really pulls your head straight due to the shape and vent intakes. Peripheral vision is awesome.
Changing the visor for cleaning or switching to clear is a bit of a pain, but I don't do it very often.
I'm so glad I just saved up and threw down on a high-quality helmet. It does not distract from the joy of the ride at all, unlike my winter gloves or boots. Yes, I went cheap on those and now I'm paying the price in comfort.

OMG Excellent Helmet!!!
I am a huge fan of AGV and x-lite helmets. This is my first ARAI helmet and let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised. It is very nicely made helmet. The vision is exceptionally wide, the noise level is very low. The only thing i don't like is changing the vison is pain in the butt. I feel like I am blindly doing it. Can't see anything... besides that, A+
