THE BRAND NEW RX-Q. Purpose-built to be "THE ULTIMATE STREET HELMET." A new benchmark in comfort, quiet, stability and ventilation in a street helmet. The helmet you'd build if you wanted to treat yourself to a dream. Every feature optimized for the conditions, speeds and environment of the real world. A helmet for others' top-of-line models to envy.
Even its name tells you it's special. To anyone familiar with Arai's model lineage, the RX prefix is well-known. It began with the original X-7 back in 1979, evolving a few years later into the iconic RX-7 model series that effectively changed the face, literally and figuratively, of helmet design.
Specifically created to be a cut above the others - even Arai's own. It's not a new street helmet by default, as in We need a new street helmet. It's a new street helmet by design, as in We need something nobody's ever done before. Arai applied the same tireless 24-7 focus usually reserved for race helmets to designing it. Refining and adapting proven concepts to a new purpose. As a result, the new RX-Q is aimed at the experienced street rider. One who can readily feel and appreciate the differences built into this amazing new Arai helmet, who reels off mega-miles no matter which way the road bends, and on every kind of bike.
