Arai Signet-X Full Face Helmet
Designed from the neck up for the road-going rider, the Signet-X helmet from Arai applied their decades of experience building some of the best helmets in the world to an every-day helmet.
Starting with the helmetís interior shape, the long oval, Arai is the only manufacturer that we know of who does this Ė the shape is designed for maximum comfort in a rider that isnít pleased with a near-enough fit. Itís a little longer front-to-back while at the same time, a little narrower than most helmet shapes on the market today. This shape is housed inside Araiís super complex laminate shell, the same materials used on their top-of-the-line helmets, to impart a high degree of protection to the wearer.
Integrated into the shell, ventilation is carefully provided fore and aft to perform optimally at typical road-going speeds. With the Signet-X, you can dial in just the right amount of air movement using three levels of opening for the chin intake and exhaust on the back top of the head. Furthermore, the intakes on top of the scalp have no detents to them, so you can perfectly dial in ventilation as needed. This feature alone can only be fully appreciated when the weather is a bit on the cooler side since these intakes draw in a lot of air. Now, you donít have to choose between sweating and freezing, just adjust as needed with your gloved hands and ride on.
At the chin, a three-way closeable intake is fitted as standard, this can be opened to either divert air upwards and assist in keeping a fog-free view of the road ahead, or at a second adjustment point, move air straight towards the jaw for maximum cooling. And directly below that, for when road conditions turn especially dirty or the skies open up, the included chin curtain keeps your face clean and dry. This stops just about all of the debris inevitably get sucked up behind the faceshield. Itís also pretty nice to have if you get caught out in especially cold temperatures.
That brings us to the helmetís liner, Araiís anti-microbial, fully-removable liner is comfort defined. Properly size (talk to TJ about that!), your head will be surrounded by an illustrious combination of cheek pads, scalp insert, chin strap liners and a neck roll that almost disappears when you put it on. Plus, even though it does stay fresh longer than lesser liners, it can easily be removed to be washed and refreshed as needed.
A clear, quick-change shield comes standard with each Signet-X helmet, and smoked versions are available as well. Plus, you get a Pinlock lens as well thatís ready to install. Fog will never be a problem with this affixed to your faceshield.
For the street rider, thereís little left to be desired in a helmet!
