Arai Signet Q Helmet. Hi-Viz Yellow. 2XL. Probably 2017 model. Worn only on one or two trips. Lots of venting, lens options. Clean. Never dropped.
This helmet came to me as part of a buy-it-all package of hardly-used motorcycle gear I acquired several years ago from a trusted acquaintance. I already had a helmet I like and am
only now getting around to selling motorcycle gear. The previous owner today writes: “The helmet was always kept inside the house, never in the garage”.

“…Instead of sitting around scratching their heads, trying to figure out how to make the successful RX-Q even better, Arai went out and measured heads—nearly 750 of them across the US—before creating the Arai Signet-Q in 2012. …Depending on your head shape, some helmet brands may not work for you. It’s all about interior EPS shape and possible The Signet-Q is the perfect snug-but-comfortable fit that feels incredibly secure. Based on the intermediate oval shell design of its predecessor, the Signet-Q is elongated slightly to better fit a larger segment of the US population. Americans tend toward oval shaped heads, and Arai’s extensive research showed them that a few more millimeters in the right places would fit even better.The Signet-Q, like all Arai helmets, is designed around dispersing energy in an impact, hence the egg shape with no protruding pieces. Arai is rather passionate about this aspect of helmet design, as safety is a cornerstone of the Arai family philosophy… (from a 2016 review in Ultimate Motorcycling)

“...Five millimeters overall front-to-back isn’t much (about 3/16″), but the elongated shape may very well eliminate the dreaded forehead “hot spot”, creating pleasant riding bliss for many owners. That’s because the Signet-Q is an Arai “Long Oval” shape, while the RX-Q is an “Intermediate Oval”; about the only real difference between the two.

Beautiful condition. Try it on. Make sure it fits you before purchasing. Firm Price. Non-returnable after purchase.
