Arai Signet-Q Karel Abraham Replica 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

This is, without question, the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. I've ridden with a few other brands (HJC, Shoei and Amazon el-cheapo) and found this Arai to be superior to all of them in terms of lasting comfort. After hours of riding my head and neck show no signs of aches and pains. The build quality and coloration also seem top notch.
A note on fitment: My head measures 23.5" around. Based on the size chart I should be a large, but I wear a medium and it fits me perfectly. Fortunately I tried on a few Signet-Q helmets locally before buying this one online, so I knew the size chart wasn't accurate for me.
A note on cost: This is the one aspect of this helmet that I find discouraging. After watching many reviews I chose Arai because I got the impression that their helmet's safety is second-to-none. I like the DOT and SNELL certifications but can't help but feel like I paid for a name...and I hate that. Also related to cost is my new-found protectiveness of my gear. My helmet no longer gets set on my bike where it has a slight chance of being knocked off. It's always in my hand and always in a position where it can't possibly get scratched. This is probably better than my old "if it falls, it falls" mentality with my $50 Amazon helmet, but at the same time worrying about gear takes a toll mentally.
Random note: The anti-fog vents and visor insert work perfectly. I've ridden on many 30-40degF mornings with absolutely no fogging issues.
