Arai threw limitations out the window and developed the RX-Q helmet to bring you quality and comfort unmatched in any of today's street bike helmets.
The Arai RX-Q helmet is formed by hand to better match the natural shell shape. This design gives the RX-Q helmet more stability at street speed and minimizes the negative aerodynamic effect when turning your head.
Experience told Arai that not all head shapes are created equal, so they designed the RX-Q helmet to match the Intermediate Oval (IO) shape. The IO shape is best suited for most people with dimensions greater front to back then side to side.
Super Complex Laminate Construction make up the shell of the RX-Q, which consists of a proprietary aerospace fiberglass developed by Arai.
Arai gave the RX-Q helmet a wider peripheral eyeport, also found on the elite Corsair V helmet.
Where others skimp, Arai built the RX-Q helmet without cutting corners by adding the Hyper-Ridge Band and vent at the bottom to increase thickness and safety through durability.
Inside the Arai RX-Q helmet is a multi-density single piece EPS liner that optimizes energy dispersion.
Keeping you cool came with research. Arai found that re-directing the brow vents to channel fresh air to the temples and ear pockets decreases the temperature of blood flow to the brain.
Fresh air easily finds its way through the advanced ventilation on the RX-Q helmet with properly placed and sized vents.
A removable and cleanable vented neckroll adds customized protection to the RX-Q helmet.
Arai developed the emergency cheekpad release system found on the RX-Q helmet. If the helmet should ever need to be removed in an emergency the cheekpads can be taken out before the helmet is removed to reduce injury.
Wearing the RX-Q all day will go without problem, thanks to Arai's cozy liner that cradles the head rather then creating a pressure fit.
Lower road noise is achieved from the redesign of the cheekpads that create a better seal between the RX-Q helmet and your face.
To further lower noise coming from the road or motorcycle Arai added sound-deadening foam in the ear pocket of the RX-Q helmet.
Keeping your Arai RX-Q lid clean is simple with the removable and washable liner.
Arai developed the easy to use LRS shield removal that does not require tools to remove the shield for cleaning or replacement.
Side pods remain on the RX-Q helmet, as well as their other helmets, for a greater purpose then a clean look. The side pods continue the round shape and eliminate flat spots that could be less effective at dissipating impact energy.
