“Arai RX-Q Graphic Helmet. I must admit I was hesitant about spending this much $ on a helmet, but it is worth every penny. As a female rider, I was looking for a well-built, lighter weight, full face helmet. Many I have tried seemed too heavy. This Arai fits the bill and the peripheral vision with Arai is outstanding. I tell fellow riders, no more excuses for not wearing a helmet. You get what you pay for. Being a safe rider is priceless. Spend the money, get this awesome helmet, you’ll wonder why you waited. Thanks Helmet City for the great prompt service” – Jackie Z. 07.13.2010

“Awesome helmet — best ever. What a great combination of fit, sound attenuation, and light-weightedness….Love it…Also, best for peripheral vision as well compared to 3 other helmets I’ve had…” – Ron B. 07.09.2010

“Upgrade from Arai Quantum 2. Super light and Increased Vision! Vents keep the noggin very comfortable. 30-40% less noise inside the helmet while on highway. Cushions around the ears and cheeks are very snug but soft and comfortable. Pretty stable at high speeds when you lift up from a tuck. Well worth the price.” – B.H. 07.13.2010
