Arai RX-Q DNA Helmet The Arai RX-Q (the round-oval shaped cousin to the Signet-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 RX-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. Features Completely new helmet based on Corsair V shell Same wider eyeport opening as Corsair V Same face shield as the Corsair V Intermediate Oval Fit (same head shape as Quantum 2) Slightly different feel due to new cheek pads. New cheek pads come down further and cradle the head better. Made of a different density material which results in an extremely comfortable and quiet helmet Advanced ventilation Smaller, More Aerodynamic shell shape Hyper-Ridge circles lower shell to improve strength and aerodynamics Retractable chin spoiler Emergency Cheek Pad Removal system along with removable neck roll One piece bottom edge trim Race helmet for the street 5 unique size shells (XS, S, M/L, XL, XXL). Weight 1597 grams (3 lbs. 8-1/4 oz) The Arai RX-Q DNA Meets or exceeds SNELL 2010 and DOT specifications

At the end of the day it's really quite simple. We are RX-Q matches the performance of the Corsair the difference being that you're riding in a much more upright position. If you never owned an Arai helmet, you should know that while it's the most expensive but it is quite simply the best helmet if the fit is right for you. My first ride with it was around Lake Superior in Canada with varying conditions in terms of heat and cold and rain and during the entire trip of 2400 miles, I never once experienced an issue with fogging
Taking off and putting on the face shield does require a little bit of practice. I have seen more intuitive systems for taking off and replacing a shield, but the extra work is definitely worth it. If your unconvinced look at the other helmets over the last several years many of their improvements are based off of Arai including vent in the shield its self.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Bell Custom 500 Flake / Metallic Helmet Just when you thought it couldnt get any better, Bell went back to the lab to make improvements to the legendary Custom 500. A new headform means the Custom 500 now fits better and looks smaller on your head than ever. No more bobbleheads. The thin-profile shell allows the Bell Custom 500 helmet to sit lower on the head, and with 5 shell and EPS sizes, its now even easier to find the look you want with the perfect fit. Features 5 shell and EPS liner sizes ensure a low profile look Shell 1 XS and SM Helmet Shell 2 MD Helmet Shell 3 LG Helmet Shell 4 XL Helmet Shell 5 2XL Helmet Integrated 5 snap pattern for aftermarket shields and visors Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Multi Density EPS liner Stainless Steel D-ring closure Leather D-ring pull tab Five year warranty

I have owned several Bell 3/4 helmets to date and this is the best so far. Excellent fit and the check padding seems a little more sturdy. Still think they should move to a locking chin guard or relocate the d-rings to allow for a stronger cinching though this is better than previous models.
Yes, I recommend this product.

Thankfully free turn around shipping with Revzilla is a saver.
You should know the cuff is anything but short relative to the 29er glove or the old Tarmac gloves. Each year the medium gets larger, by next I figure I can start ordering a small.
The velcro doesn't cinch the cuff well.
At the end of the day the materials are solid and the look is awesome but the fit is poor and thus the function makes it and instant return.
No, I do not recommend this product.

All I wanted was a vest for those days when wearing a light weight jacket was too much, but something to keep my chest warmer still allowed for shortsleeves. This fit well was lighter weight perf leather. Thought it was great bang for the buck. Wore it on my 1700 mile ride. Great for temps from 65-80 degrees. Gets a little to warm after your in the mid to high 80s.
Btw I got a large and I'm 5'9" and 170. It's was a snug fit. The other vests I looked at were to loose or unlike this had a poor cut.
This has no armor.
Yes, I recommend this product.
