IMHO, it depends on the shape of your head. I have a medium oval shaped head, which tends to feel better in a Shoei. I have the Shoei Quest, in Silver, and could not be happier with the fit. If you have more of a round shaped head, Arai seems to fit better. Please note that the Shoei Quest and the New Arai RX-Q are true touring helmets. The vents are higher on the head to be more efficient in an upright seating position. One last thing, the new RX-Q does seem to fit a more oval shaped head, a departure from the rest of the Arai line.
The best thing for you to do, if you can, is try the helmets on and see for yourself. The Shoei is MUCH cheaper than the Arai!
