Anyone have a Arai Signet-Q Helmet?

I'm looking into buying an Arai Signet Q helmet in the near future. If anyone here has one I would like your opinion on it.

I just got one from Revzilla.

It fits my long oval head very well (Arai is now making helmets in only two head shapes, long oval and intermediate oval). The sizing is off--I wear XL hats of every brand, and an XL Scorpion EXO-700 helmet is a good fit (but some forehead pressure after about six hours), but the Signet-Q medium is just right! I had a chance to try the Signet-Q at the bike show, so I knew what Arai size to get.

Anyway, the helmet is comfortable and quiet, and interior and exterior finish are excellent. This is my first Pin-Lock visor, and it is fog free with the insert in place. At first try the helmet fit a bit tight, especially the cheek pads, but the fit is breaking in OK. The cheek pads have the 5mm removable layer in any case. Visor movement, venting, everything else are OK or better. I've gotten the Arai visor off & back on a couple of times, but it is still klutzy. Do any other helmet makers feel the need to enclose a DVD of visor removal? Good instructions for removing and replacing the interior pads would have been welcome, but they can be figured out.

So, so far I'm glad I got it.

Once you get the Arai visor removal and install down, you'll wonder why everone else doesn't do it that way.

Signet-Q owner here, also...

...Fits my long oval head beautifully.

Super comfy.

Ventilation is great, the new visor vents dump high speed air on your temple, cooling the blood in the temporal artery. I cannot emphasize how effective this is.

Love this helmet.
