Arai Signet-Q Hydra Helmet The Signet-Q takes all the favorite features of the RX-Q and create a whole new series based on all the successes. On the outside, the Arai Signet-Q Helmet looks very similar to it's namesake, the RX-Q, but on the inside you can see and feel the difference. 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. Additional Features of the Arai Signet-Q Helmet 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 Pin Lock Max-Vision Brow Vent face shield Included with the helmet 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

Bought this because I have a long oval head shape and the vast majority of helmets don't fit me.
This one fits perfectly. In fact, now that I have it, I realize I never had a properly fitting helmet before! I've had a few that caused pressure points, and a few that were loose. This one - perfect. It doesn't feel tight, and it doesn't feel loose - it's just right.
Other than that - noise level is less than my previous helmet, but still quite a bit of wind noise.
Visor is crystal clear, gorgeous. Thoughtful vents. Arai quality - all you need to know really.
About the design - this helmet, like most Arais, looks much better in person than on the pics. It's drop dead gorgeous.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I have four of these now - it's the only helmet I've found so far that fits my long oval head. I got pressure point on my forehead on my Arai helmets - not so this one. It's super comfy, and the graphics are beautiful.
In 2 crashes, the helmet worked well and protected my head - zero issues.
The only downside I see is that the interior material deteriorates faster than say on an expensive helmet. Fit, looks, comfort, protection are the same as on a much more expensive helmet; durability is where you can see why it's cheap.
Another slight negative - the helmet has great ventilation - whether you want it or not. So if it's cold, it gets cold inside.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I *love* these boots - they're very comfortable but buy one size up as they're cut really small. I normally wear EUR size 44 but got these from a store and chose 45, and they're still smallish.
That said, they're super comfortable and for protection all I can say is I crashed them twice and there's nary a scratch on them - they're just rock solid, and they will protect your feet. On one occasion my whole body hurt - but not my feet.
They're the most comfortable hard boots I've ever walked in, too. They're not as nice as soft sneakers but for the level of protection they provide I don't think comfort can be any better.
Ventilation is great, never had an issue and I am riding in tropical temperatures.
All in all, a fantastic product that works well. Looks good, too.
Yes, I recommend this product.

I am riding this jacket in a tropical climate.
The good: Airflow is amazing while riding; Jacket looks awesome - one of the best looking. Fit is true to size.
The bad: This jacket is very hot when stopped. That's not a joke - I've had other jackets that aren't nearly as hot; it's a combination of the cut and the inner liner. The liner is just uncomfortable in the heat. Had I known this in advance, I wouldn't have bought it.
Another issue: There is no zip in liner for wind protection on cold mornings. As mentioned airflow when riding is colossal so it can get *cold* - I need a wind shirt to take this jacket touring, even in the tropics.
Zippers could be better quality, I noticed that they're a bit hard to operate when they get dusty. Not a huge issue but I expect perfect zippers on brand name gear.
All in all this does not work in the tropics, and was money wasted. It may work better elsewhere though, and it looks really good.
Yes, I recommend this product.
