Nice helmet with limitations

I was looking for a helmet that was as safe as I could afford. I had a HJC FGST which although was a budget helmet had, according to Sharp, a 5 star rating so I was looking for nothing less. I tried on various SHOEIs but the build quality seemed inferior as did the Sharp rating. For safety and comfort I settled on the ARAI especially as I wanted a sunvisor. I tried on the qv pro and the qv drone. In truth there seemed very little difference in comfort between the two. I was unable to discern what the difference is between the two of them. I think they are designed for the shape of your head but I couldn't find out in the shop or online. There is a YouTube clip which I stumbled upon which mentions head shape. I chose the drone because although it was slightly tighter I think it will loosen off within a couple of months. The vision is very good but it is heavier than I had hoped. Wind noise is also louder than I hoped. The sun visor does not come with it - to have that will cost you another £85 on top and I couldn't afford that. The visor catch needs to be adapted somehow. It relies on a small latch which you need to lift up and then pull the visor away from the helmet to lift it up. It's definitely a technique and with summer gloves it's OK but winter gloves may make this operation more tricky. I chose it in the end because it has a 5 star Sharp rating and felt safe. It gives me the psychological knowledge that I'm as safe as can be with it on my head. Helmets seem to be a very personal choice and I'd recommend you go and try as many on as you can and let the helmet choose you.

Arai QV shipped to Sweden

I'm extremely pleased with the handling and speed of the delivery of my new Arai QV shipped to Sweden. The helmet is superb and this is the 4:th Arai helmet I own. Arai helmets stands out in quality. The helmet comfort is very good and as a MD the protection must be the absolute best on the market. I recommend the helmet to all sport-touring drivers.

Stunning lid

This is my second Arai, had Bell's, OGK's etc but the first Arai (chaser v) set the bench mark for subsequent helmets, it was time to retire the chaser and I was looking at the RX7 but looked at the QV as I had swapped from an R1 to an MT10 and thought it ticked more of the boxes for my type of riding, general and tours with mates, only been out a few times as it's winter, with the new lid and I have to say the noise and the weight of the lid are just stunning, and the new screen allows for great peripheral vision, I would recommend this lid for it features and it's stunning design, but make sure it fits your head type as not everyone can get on with it. The only negative point is the visor release compared to the chaser is much more fiddly, but I'm sure after some time with it, it will become second nature. Safe riding

Sportsbikeshop are Superb!

This is my third Arai Quantum/QV I've owned over a 10 year period and somehow they just get better and better each time. It's the first helmet I've ordered from Sportsbikeshop and they were superb. Helpful on the phone, easy to order online and arrived the next day with free postage. Couldn't ask for anything more. See you next time. Thanks

Even better than my Signet Q

Had to go up a size form my Signet Q but it's a perfect fit and very comfy. First ride was a round trip from Manc to Glasgow in the wind and rain and it performed as it should. Lighter than my previous helmet and seals better. I may actually take the chin part out as I couldn't stop my glasses misting but with the Pinlock the visor stayed fog free. Can't fault it and can't fault the Sportsbikeshop return policy when I chose the wrong size. Great price too!

Very comfortable

Very comfortable helmet. Only issue is the visor mechanism is trickier and more fickle than my Shoei, other then that great helmet.

Replacement Arai

Nice replacement for my old Astro R. Look, feel and quality of a premium product. Nice new features with the visor mechanism. Good price and service from Sportsbikeshop. Visited store to try on a few other models then this was sent on as my size out of stock in two days well packaged for delivery.

My first Arai

Great lid, feels premium but suppose it should for the price. Very comfortable with a good field of vision and gives good ventilation. Only gave 4 stars as feel there's a bit of wind noise on motorways but set of earplugs sort this. Service from Sportsbikeshop spot on as per usual, even did a price match for me.

So pleased, have waited for a few months for this to come in, in my size XS.It is a true fit, very light and the vision through the visor aperture is much better than my old RX7. Lovely matt finish and the guys at Sportsbikeshop did a price match.
