Arai Signet-Q Brett King Limited Edition 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 1970s. Since Arais 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 helps prevent hot spots SAI MAX-Vision Brow Vent shield Clear Pinlock Max-Vision Brow Vent Pinlock lens included Elongated shell adds 5mm from front to back 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 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 DOT standards Limited to 300

Been wearing Arai Long Oval helmets for years. Signet Q is the best by far. Like that it comes with a Pinlock lens. Wore a large in my previous Arai Profile but the salesperson in the Revzilla showroom recommended a Medium in the Signet Q. She was right. Snug, but oh so comfortable.
Best part is they flat out work as designed.
Recently crested a rise at about 45 mph and found an 8-inch deep pothole on the other side. Broke a link in the rear suspension and locked up the rear wheel. Skidded for about 40 feet and then fell. Hit my head twice on the road (yellow paint from the center line on the helmet). No headache, no concussion, no nothing. I've always been an ATGATT guy and all of it did its job very well. Bruised but no rash.
Bottom line. Love my Arai.

Hard to judge the protection since I haven't fallen in it (knock on wood). It's flexible and comfortable when I'm wearing it in the jacket. Air flow's OK. But I'm wearing a leather jacket in 80 degree weather. I'm going to get sweaty.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I've worn these 2-3 times now in temps of the mid 80s under perf leather pants. They feel fine and certainly make it easier to get the pants off after a sweaty ride.
They do run small. I'm 5'8", 30" inseam. Bought the M-L and they're just large enough. A bit short. Next time I'll get L-XL
Yes, I recommend this product.

Dunlop Sportmax Q3 Rear Tires The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 is the next-generation sport bike tire and successor to Dunlop's popular Q2 tire, featuring Dunlops new Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) which incorporates carbon fiber reinforcements into the sidewall. The Dunlop Q3 Sportmax also features an updated tread pattern with longer grooves to better evacuate water which helps wet weather performance and Dunlop's Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) for phenomenal handling and steering grip and feel. IRP provides a larger, more consistent contact patch as you lean into corners, as well as linear steering and handling at various lean angles. IRP tires also offer phenomenal steering and handling characteristics thanks to a taller profile along with sides that taper in more aggressively. The new Sportmax Q3 represents yet another direct benefit yielded from Dunlops AMA Pro Road Racing involvement. As the control tire supplier for AMA Pro Road Racing, Dunlop invested in new tire-producing machinery necessary to accommodate race tire production at Dunlops Buffalo, NY, manufacturing facility. These same high-tech machines are used to produce the all-new Q3 rear tire. Features: Dunlops Carbon Fiber Technology (CFT) uses carbon fiber reinforcement in the tire sidewalls for exceptional cornering performance and feel Aggressive new Dunlop Q3 tread pattern uses fewer grooves that are longer in length to enhance wet-weather performance Intuitive Response Profile (IRP) technology in the rear tire allows greater latitude in line choice while cornering, plus amazingly linear steering MT Multi-Tread technology in the rear tire uses a tough, long-wearing compound in the center of the tread for excellent traction and longer tread life, plus special lateral grip compounds for outstanding grip Dunlop tires with MT technology incorporate a tough, cool-running long-wearing compound in the center of the tread to provide enhanced straight-line stability and excellent traction under acceleration, plus long tread life New Q3 tire compounds were derived from road-race compounds to yield maximum sportbike performance The Dunlop Sportmax Q3 offers superb grip, stability, steering feel and longevity on the street and on the track Designed, tested and manufactured in America, the Dunlop Q3 sets new standards for high-performance sport tires

Can't testify to ultimate grip levels (I've only had them on for 100 or so miles, but they've helped make my notoriously hard-to-turn bike TL1000R) a pleasure in the corners.
I replaced Q2s with the Q3s and had BT-016s before the Q2s. Neither of those tires gave me the steering response of the Q3s. I truly feel that I can place my bike anywhere in a corner at any time. It's exhilarating. We'll see how long they last.
Yes, I recommend this product.
