Arai Signet-Q US Flag Black Frost Helmet
An overall quality made helmet.
I use my 2013 Harley Ultra Glide to commute to and and from work as well as weekend trips. The helmet is comfortable when riding on a hot summer or cold winter days (minus snow of course).
The air vents allow air to flow through the helmet reducing the amount the rider sweats in warm to hot months. The helmet is well insulated reducing cold air flow under the chin area of the helmet during rides in colder months.
I have been extremely pleased with the quietness of the helmet. I have opened the visor slightly on very hot days for more ventilation, and did not get any wind noise inside the helmet. I was able to clearly hear the radio playing while traveling at a speed of 70 mph.
The helmet fits very well and is extremely light weight. I do not have any hot spots and the light weight makes long rides comfortable. The cheek pads can be altered by removing layer(s) of foam, which help the rider create a snug comfortable fit.
The visor will fog on cold days when stopped or traveling less than 20 mph. This helmet does come with the pin lock system which has vents located at the top of the visor. These vents work very well when traveling, but unfortunately do not allow enough airflow when stopped or traveling less than 20 mph. I compensate this issue by cracking the visor, which is not problem since the helmet is so well insulated.
I would highly recommend this helmet.
Pros. Air flow, quietness, light weight and wide vision.

What more can you say?
Arai products are spectacular - and this is no exception.
Great fit, feel, finish, comfort and visibility. And lightweight too. Only "complaint" I could make is that the chin strap is a little stiff - but heck, that'll work itself out over time.
Overall - can't go wrong with Arai.

Arai quality and construction.
This is a very comfortable helmet and the graphics look awesome. My only complaint is the three LARGE non-removable Arai logos on the helmet that cover a significant amount of the graphics. The two on the sides are covered with clear coat and removal of the one on the front reveals a glossy finish underneath, where the rest of the finish is matte. Too bad. If Arai feels the need to place its company stickers all over the helmet, they should at least use reflective materials to increase safety and visibility. Maybe they should reduce the premium price for their graphics helmets in lieu of the free advertising service that the purchaser is providing for the company. Despite this complaint, I love Arai helmets and find them the most comfortable for for my head shape and will continue to buy them in the future.

Notably improved design
This is my thrid Arai helmet, and the best one yet based on fit, comfort and great looks. I became a dedicated fan of Arai when I discovered the Signet-GTR, which I replaced after time with the RX-Q. Although the RX-Q was billed as vastly improved for regular street-riding position, I did not find that much differenc from the Signet-GTR. I still use the RX-Q, but wanted to add an alternate helmet, and decided to try the Signet-Q. Wow! Best helmet ever! Super comfortable right out of the box, wider field of vision, light weight and adequate--but not tremendous--airflow. First ride was 160+ miles with no discomfort in the fit at all. The flat black color does absorb more heat than usual, and venting is not able to keep up. In the Upper Midwest this is not so much of a problem, but in warmer climes, like desert or tropical, I can imagine this being an issue. I do love the graphics on this one a lot, but the comfy fit is the real seller for me.

Arai Signet-Q Flag Black Forest helmet delivers on all counts
I purchased the Arai Signet-Q Flag Black Forest helmet for 4 reasons:
1) safety- knowing my noggin is protected by top quality helmet - don't be penny wise and pound foolish with the most important gear
2) comfort - long oval shape is super comfortable and no hot spot, can adjust pads inside. Great airflow.
3) Wider field of vision
4) Matte black + US Flag design = me
Very satisfied customer.

Great look, excellent safety, slightly high priced
Under first view, I purchased helmet because of the oval fit on my head. Also, the graphics second to none. Ok ventilation, 2 small holes in the front. It is light weight, I like the changes you can make with the pading. Still getting use to it. I think it is a little pricy, but I like the snell and dot safety check on the helmet. Revzilla best company to purchase any helmet. It arrived in one day, thanks.
