Arai Signet-Q Basilisk Helmet

The Arai Signet-Q (the long-oval shaped cousin to the RX-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 Signet-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.

A longer shell shape on the Arai Signet-Q Helmet gives 5mm more space front to back allowing for a larger number of heads to fit comfortably. The shape of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet releases forehead pressures and eliminate hot spots for a more comfortable fit every time.  This shape works best for riders with a long oval headshape.

Features:

  • Both the top vent set and side exhaust cowls are direct carryovers from the RX-Q 
  • Brow vent ducting redirects to flow air across the temples
  • DDL-4 exhaust vent to the 10mm wider eye port (5mm on each side)
  • Long Oval Fit
  • SAI "MAX-Vision Brow Vent" shield
  • Clear Pinlock Max-Vision Brow Vent Pinlock lens included
  • Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back
  • Long-Oval shape helps prevent “Hot-Spot”
  • Multi-Density Single piece EPS liner
  • Removable, replaceable, washable interior
  • Dry-Cool Surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head and into the ventilation airflow for added comfort while riding and a quick dry between rides
  • 5mm peel-away temple pads adds another level of customization, giving the helmet interior a little extra width when needed
  • Enhanced for customizable micro fitment interior without the need to purchase extra interior components
  • New FCS (Facial Contour Support) cheek pad design
  • Innovative and exclusive spring support adds just the right amount of pressure when needed while being worn
  • Meets or exceeds Snell and D.O.T. standards

Worth it! It was finally time to replace my old (and very pink & girlie) helmet and after trying on numerous ones in the showroom, Signet-Q won me over. The fit is perfect, the weight is super light, the pin-lock is wonderful and my eyeglasses fit in with no problem. While this is a unisex helmet, the sparkles in the Diamond Black make it feel more feminine to me. March 27, 2015
Excellent Fit Best fitting helmet I have ever used. I have an extra long oval head. Try to find a helmet that fits that size head. I've tried many helmets, over the years, and right out of the box this helmet FITS with no hot spots. March 16, 2015
Comfort, but overbuilt.... For long oval heads, this is a very comfortable helmet, extremely comfortable. However, the vents, pinlock and open/close/tilt features are too overbuilt and quite counterintuitive. I've had to develop a muscle memory flick to get the thing open. Once closed if you don't open the shield outward at a 45 degree and up, you're beat. It will not open...apply that technique? Good to go. The salesman assured me that the pinlock woudn't fog. I laughed inside---it fogged the moment I closed it. Previous helmets with a 1/4 open feature stayed clearer. ALL THAT SAID, this is a comfortable helmet--it's going to break in fine. But, I've had to apply some serious TTPs (techniques, tactics and procedures) to live with it. March 10, 2015
Excellent Helmet I have a "long oval" head shape and this fits perfectly. The Hi-Vis Yellow stands out in traffic and the flat black accents make it look a little less dorky. The mechanisms, visor and pin lock anti-fog system are clearly high quality and very easy to use. I have had cheaper helmets and finally stepped up to an Arai. Overall there are three things that could make this helmet better. 1. Increasing the length of the padding on the chin strap. The strap itself rubs against your chin if you tighten it correctly. 2. It would be nice if they could figure out some way to reduce the noise inside the helmet. This is the quietest helmet that I have worn but quieter=better. 3. It would be AMAZING if they could partner with Scala or some similar company and offer an integrated blue tooth system in the helmet rather than an add on. This shouldn't be an expensive add on, just look at the general blue tooth speaker market to find a zillion different options for less that $100. February 3, 2015
The Right Fit After going to the New York IMS we got properly fitted and we got some recommendations from the Arai booth I ordered a signet. I was then able to get my helmet and get it broken in. Had to order the slimmer cheek pads to accommodate my face but what a great fit afterwards. It's mildly noisy on different bikes but not really too bad, air flow while moving and again on different bikes seems to be a big variable, but not by far a deal breaker. The protection is absolutely the best and after being hit on the highway by a tour bus and taken out all I can say is all my gear performed perfectly. Take the time to get the best you can afford, it CAN save you in a crash. On a secondary note one of the vents broke, called in and they sent me out the parts quickly and easily. It was a DIY job easy no need to send it back. Overall a great helmet with great features and a company that backs their product up. December 21, 2014
Amazing helmet. Perfect fit With an egg for a head I have been searching for years for the right helmet. This is the only one that fit just right. It's perfect for long oval shaped heads. Yes it is not the cheapest but you will not be disappointed in the craftsmanship of this helmet. I will not wear anything else and I've tried them all. December 15, 2014
Worth the investment for (freakishly) long oval head As a new rider I made the mistake of buying a HJC helment because it fit my budget and was comfortable in the store. Don't get me wrong, it is a fine helment at the $150 price point, just totally wrong for my long oval head. I started to get a headache after 20 minutes. Two hours into a ride and I wanted to DIE. I knew I was going to have to invest in a new lid. This time, I did my reasearch. After reading recommendations for long oval helments and trying them all on, I narrowed it down to the Icon Airmada and the Arai Signet-Q. I visited the store several times and could not decide. After talking at length to the Arai rep at a local show I decided to bite the bullit and shell out the $600 for the Arai. I am on a pretty tight buget, so this kind of investment was a reach for me. I am so glad that I did. I went on a 3 hour ride this weekend and the helment was completely comfortable right out of the box. I feel like I could wear it all day with no issues. Comfort was absolutely my only concern, so it was a total bonus that the helment also vents like a mofo and while there is always wind noise, it didn't whistle AT ALL even with all the vents open at 90 MPH. And I think the Hi-Vis yellow looks badass. I suppose it is possible that I could have saved $350 and been equally happy with the Airmada, but I have my doubts. I firmly believe that you get what you pay for with the Arai. I am pleased (and relieved) with my decision. November 10, 2014
ARAI has outdone themselves with this helmet! This is a remarkable helmet is every way. It's the RX-Q, which is a terrific street helmet, but designed to fit the longer oval head. And it's adjustable for comfort, by removing the 5MM peel-away cheek pads. The liners and pads are washable. The Pinlock faceshield with optional tinted visors is an added bonus. Anthony is right! This is one great helmet, from the world's leading helmet maker. This is my second Arai helmet from Revzilla. These fellows know what they're doing. They are all about customer service and satisfaction. From the informational videos on almost every product they sell, to the super prices and return policy, and the phenomenal after-care service, in case you have a question or concern. They are the best. I'm a huge fan of Revzilla, can you tell? (And no, I don't own part of the company. I'm just a very happy customer.) November 3, 2014
