The Arai Signet-Q Helmet is a high-quality helmet that has received glowing reviews everywhere you look. This helmet comes in various colours and sizes and is absolutely packed with great features, including eyeport design that offers greater peripheral view, aerodynamic shell, emergency cheek pad release design and advanced ventilation.
Those who look at safety first when deciding on a new helmet will be happy to know this helmet is both DOT and SNELL approved. With its high level of safety and eyeport visor you really won’t be able to find a safer helmet on the market today.
It is fair to say that this is one of the best helmets we have ever reviewed, however, we also have to point out that it’s not the most affordable helmet in the world and may be out of the price range of some people.
Arai Signet-Q Review
The Arai Signet-Q is both DOT and SNELL certified, meeting the very highest safety standards.
The great ventilation and incredibly comfortable interior help drown out much of the noise made by your motorcycle. If you are looking for a helmet that reduces noise then the Signet-Q is a great option.
The Arai Signet-Q has great ventilation, the brow vent redirects the flow of air across the temples keeping you cool as you ride. You will also find multiple other vents on the helmet across the top and sides.
The Arai Signet-Q surprisingly weighs 4.7 pounds, while its not the heaviest helmet in the world, it’s definitely not the lightest helmet either. However, while it may not be ultra light, the balance and the comfortable interior of the helmet do offset the weight and you will never feel like the helmet is overly heavy.
Shell & Liner
The composite shell and multi-density EPS liner make for a solid and incredibly comfortable helmet. Inside the helmet you will find removable, replaceable and washable interior as well as Dry-Cool surface material for rapid displacement of heat and moisture away from your head.
For added customisation, 5mm peel-away temple pads (included) can be used for a little extra width if needed.
The Arai Signet-Q has a clear Pinlock Max-Vision visor and an eyeport designed to maximise peripheral vision. This allows the rider to see as much as possible whilst also being fully protected by the helmet.
- DOT and SNELL approved
- Great ventilation
- Removable, washable, replaceable EPS liner as well as peel-away temple pads

Overall, the Arai Signet-Q is a great package. The construction and material is top quality, the safety measures are high and comfort levels are both lavish and customizable.
The shell shape, air duct design and interior padding all reduce wind buffeting to an extremely low drone, minimising the distraction of high-pitched bursts or whistling. The premium craftsmanship of the helmet is easy to see in the details while the straps, vents and visor all operate with ease.
While the price of the Arai Signet-Q may be a stretch too far for some, it is worth every single penny and easy to see why its loved so much by consumers who have already bought the helmet.
One of the best helmets we have ever reviewed, the Arai Signet-Q has it all. Comfort, quality and safety, this helmet stands out in all categories. Sure it may be out of the price range of some folks, but you truly do get what you pay for and this helmet is worth every penny.
