Arai RX-Q

Looking at getting an RX-Q as a track helmet. The fit is perfect on me.
I was wondering if people who currently pr previously owned the same model of helmet have anything to say re. its performance at track speeds (particularly stability)

Cheers

So I've been assured by Brian Van at sportbiketrackgear and a dude at revzilla that this model will be suitable. Will be picking one up on Wednesday. Can't wait! =D

I've always worn Arai's and I never have found any fault with their quality

I have an RX-Q. It's nice, good quality. Don't think the fit is exactly right for me. It's good enough that I've worn it over a year now, but I prefer the fit of a Shoei RF1100 and my Scorpion Exo 400 much more. YMMV of course! Fine helmet otherwise.

You should take a look at the Profile/Signet line, the RX-Q is too round for my head

Well here it is. Check out those sparkles!


went for a quck spin, this fits me better than aything else ive tried on. ventilation is great! pretty much no wind noise (i was wearing moulded ear plugs), but most importantly, it makes my hair look less stupid when I take it off compared to my Speed R Hahaha
I feel that the aerodynamics are far better than my Speed R too. Can't wait to take it to the track
