The Arai Signet-Q was designed for the long oval head shape. You will find that the new Arai helmets have the SAI face shield which adds a wider eyeport to the tune of 5 millimeters per side of peripheral vision. Arai has grappled with the problem of fogged up face shields and has designed, in conjunction with the Dutch Pinlock firm, the Arai-Pinlock fog-free face shield which is standard on the Signet-Q.
The Arai Signet-Q is designed for an upright or 3/4 upright riding position and the fully adjustable chimney and rear vents work perfectly in that position. The Signet-Q helmet is loaded with all sorts of clever vents not the least of which is the brow vent system that is fully adjustable and is designed to channel air onto the temporal arteries for efficient cooling. Up in the front of the Signet-Q you will find Arai’s universally thoughtful touches: there is the three position chin vent and the retractable chin spoiler both of which can be easily manipulated with a gloved hand.
Lastly, the Arai Signet-Q is extraordinarily quiet and that comes down to the removable, washable, moisture wicking cheek pads. Again you see the countless hours of designing that have gone into a Signet-Q cheek pad set that is adjustable to fit your face type and will fit your head snugly yet comfortably enough to keep the helmet in place and substantially reduce wind whistling.
