Great piece.. During the first few times using my new Arai helmet, I wore my sunglasses as the shield was a clear one. I knew that I wanted to avoid wearing my glasses and just rely on a shield that would protect me from the sun. Well, this is it..After having ridden the bike twice with this new shield not only have I avoided having to wear my sunglasses, but it has also taken my helmet to a different level in terms of looks. The installation wasn't too easy, but thanks to Tony and his video, I was able to do it. I highly recommend this product for anyone who may be in the market. March 17, 2014
Good visibility, highly scratch resistant It does what it is supposed to do. Great field of view, very clear and highly scratch resistant shield. March 17, 2014
dark smoke face shield works great The Arai RXQ dark smoke faceshield is now a must-have for me. Riding in clear weather is so much easier on the eyes when the sun is low. By the way, Arai says all their face shields, even the clear ones are 99% uv protection. Using online video demo, swapping shields can be done in 20 seconds, so I now carry clear for backup or if out too late. March 3, 2014
Great visor Was relatively easy to install thanks to the video tutorial. Clear and great field of vision. Now my all black Arai Quantum looks super stealthy. February 17, 2014
Arai SAI mirrored face shield I bought the MIrrored SAI face shield because I never wanted to wear sunglasses with the helmet, because of potential damage in a crash. That said, this face shield is awesome. Good quality mirror coating, excellent uv protection but not to dark. Extremely easy on and easy off. A good investment for your Arai. February 17, 2014
Now I have 3 clear light smoke and dark smoke? a different one for all occasions, so simple to change out, HATE it when the sun is beating in on your face, or when you have a too dark one on in the wrong conditions, like at night. Quick chango and one less thing to worry about, makes for a safer ride I feel, when you are not being bothered by too much blinding or irritating sunlight. slip them in a protective cover (wrap them in paper towels or towel) into the topcase or pannier, gonna be a always carry item. Nice they come with some lube for the seal and the latching mechanism . The eye brow vents do their job, Haven't noticed any distortion thru the lens . I have a different helmet for COLD weather riding with a nose guard and a chin curtain. better for the cold BUT noticeably noisier. Good to have options for a more comfortable/pleasant less distracted ride. Now I am set! February 3, 2014
very good quality smoke shield looks good, provides good sun protection, works just as described, you will have to change shields before dark as it is too dark for nighttime. January 13, 2014
Looks and fits great! I bought the blue mirror. Fit and looks as expected (amazing!). Cons: Even though the color I bought is a mirrored lens, the dark lens is still a better choice on a sunny day, due to the darker tint. Also, it seems that the blue mirror very slightly warps vision near the bottom of the lens, like when you check your speed. All in all, I'd recommend it. January 2, 2014

Colin S: My helmet came with the clear shield which forced me to wear glasses under my visor during the day. In warm weather this causes some discomfort from sweating. The smoke visor works perfectly without the need to wear glasses and give me better field of view. I carry both now on the bike and switch to the clear only when it gets dark. Oct 19, 2013

L U: Needed a light smoke shield to go with my new RXQ. Arai's shields hold up the best Sep 8, 2013
Steven L: Avoid the new type that have inserts to prevent fog or something. The reflections day or night are epic-ly absurd. If you do get the inserts and think you want a dark for day use you will regret it. A full dark shield is a million times better. Basic model is the way to go. Sep 4, 2013

A shopper asked: I wear prescription glasses AND sunglasses. The clear default shield is insufficient for riding in direct sunlight wearing glasses (e.g. early morning before sun gets over trees and left home sans sunglasses).

Better to buy a lighter shield to wear with glasses OR sunglasses...

...OR...

Buy the darkest shield I can handle to ride with just glasses?

Christopher L: I can tell you that the mirror shield still allows a bit of heavy light in. For instance, if I have my helmet on (equipped w mirror shield) I can look in the mirror and see my face relatively clearly (in the right light anyway). I find myself squinting when riding into direct sunlight as well. All in all it's a good shield but I do wish It had further protest in against direct sunlight from its glare/brightness.

In comparison, I have a Shark dark smoke shield for my rsr2 and no matter how hard you look you will NEVER see my face through that. I'd be able to ride straight at the sun with ZERO glare/brightness issues.

I do not recommend riding in low light conditions w the Arai mirror shield. It's dark enough to make me feel pretty insecure when the sun isn't out (pre dawn/post dusk) but fine on cloudy days.

I do not wear glasses of any kind ever while riding. I'd be curious if the dark smoke tint from arai is any "darker" than the mirror tint. At the end of the day, you may not even find the PERFECT shield but I think I have the perfect helmet from arai (defiant black w/orange stripe :D ) and the mirror shield compliments it very well! Good luck!

A s: I have the same issue. I wear prescription sunglasses for driving, but hate wearing them for riding with my RX-Q.

I have the Clear Pin-Lock SAI shield for night riding, and a Mirror shield for Daylight riding and it works well. I can still wear my prescription glasses (clear lenses) with the Mirror shield if I need to but usually get away with just the Mirror shield.

The Shield on my RX-Q is pretty easy to change (after a few practice swaps I finally got the hang of it), so I bought the padded ZLA Shield cover and carry both shields with me.

Peter J: The lighter shield will be more versatile throughout the riding day and will not require a change to the clear shield at dusk. If you do have continuous issues with sun on the commute I suppose the dark shield makes sense and you can switch to the clear shield for the evening ride. I always keep the clear shield with me on rides. Hope this helps. Mar 22, 2014

Christopher L: 1) I have the mirror visor and it's nearly impossible to see into it. At the right angle w the right lighting, however, you can see faintly through it. It doesn't appear that the dark smoke tint is blacked out like the schuberth SR1 darkest. I had a shark RSR2 dark smoke that also was completely blacked out. In person and in pics the SAI just doesn't appear that dark. The shark visor is thicker so that could add to the blackout effect as well.

2) I've got the arai defiant and fog isn't an issue when I have the breath deflector incorporated as well as the front chin/mouth vent slightly open one click (indirect air flow). Opening the brow vents causes an obnoxious whistle and I haven't noticed any aid with fog perfection so don't use those but a friend w a vector model says they help greatly.

Cheers and good luck!

Holden L: If you get dark smoke (not mirrored), people can see the outline of your face, but they can't see your expression.

Fogging is a problem with these face shields if you ride in stop-and-go traffic. Even with the RX-Q's chin vent all the way down and the shield slightly open in defog mode, the shield fogs up, especially in cool, damp weather. So I have to open the shield a bit to clear the fog. It doesn't fog on the highway, but I commute on 35mph and 45mph roads with a few stoplights, and I get fogging when I stop at lights and sometimes when drivers in front of me are forcing me to go 30mph or under. I broke down and got a Pinlock visor.

Kent B: The Dark smoke visor is not mirrored but does not reveal your face to onlookers.
I have one and like it for summers.
Fogging is like any other face shield...depends on ambient air temperature and humidity your are riding in. This visor does not offer any particular advantage or anti-fogging capability over any other visor I have worn.

RevZilla: The mirrored Arai shields are slightly darker in tint, but are also more prone to scratch damage more easily due to the mirroring on the outside of the shield. We hope this helps with your decision. Apr 20, 2012

A shopper asked: Good day! I recently purchased a 2003 Triumph Sprint ST, which is silver in color. I would like to purchase an Arai Signet-Q and would like to color-match it to the bike. I see that there are 3 different color helmets, all very close to silver in color. I was wondering is anyone could tell me what solid color Signet-Q helmet would best match the factory silver on this triumph? Thanks very much for your assistance. May 13, 2013
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: The Saphire Silver has a subtle blue tint to it, so most likely would not be a perfect match to your Triumph. Next comes the Diamond Grey, which looks dark and mysterious, but might be a shade too dark for your bike. Last is the Aluminum Silver, which is right in between the two, and should be juuuuust right. Goldilocks approved. May 28, 2013
