Purpose-built for the street. A new benchmark in comfort, quiet, stability, and ventilation. Arai applied the same tireless 24-7 focus devoted to our race helmets to designing it, refining and adapting proven concepts to a new purpose. On the long, narrow end of the head shape spectrum, the Signet series has always been the "go-to" helmet of choice. The new Signet-X exemplifies that shape in a feature-rich package.
Arai is the only company offering multiple interior-fit shapes to better address the infinite variety of riders’ head shapes and sizes. No one pays more attention to the subtle variations and infinite possibilities of the human head shape than Arai. Why? Because it’s the secret to getting the best comfort and fit. And Arai is nothing short of obsessed with putting you into the best fitting, most comfortable helmet possible – because that´s who we are.
The Signet-X has Arai's LONG OVAL (LO) interior fit shape. Exclusively made for the North American market, the SIgnet-X is Longer front-to-back and a more narrow side-to-side (as compared to Intermediate Oval).*
*A Helmet needs to be tried on in order to determine a proper fit.
VAS SHIELD SYSTEM: The Variable Axis System shield mechanism was developed to enhance the shape of the shell, but the easy to learn changing mechanism is what most people are raving about. Quick, easy and intuitive.
IMPROVED SHIELD LATCH: The VAS latch captures and securely holds the shield closed to help prevent unexpected opening. In addition to the de-mist function, the larger latch allows for intuitive and seamless shield operation.
IMPROVED GLANCE OFF ABILITY: The VAS pivot cover is now smaller and lower than the previous design, yielding an average of 24mm more area above the cover. The shell is now smoother along the Snell test line in the temple area, thus increasing the helmet’s ability to glance off objects during an impact. Compared with the shell of the Corsair-V, the smooth area around the temple is increased by an average of 24mm on the new VAS model. Having a rounder, smoother, stronger shell to improve glance off ability.
PB-SCLC: The new Peripherally Belted - Super Complex Laminate Construction shell design combines multiple materials and techniques created internally by Arai that deliver both performance and affordability.
DUCT VENTILATION: In keeping with the "improve on what works" mentality at Arai, the new QVF & QVR upper ventilation ducts look familiar but offer more adjustment and better flow through performance.
CHINCOVER: The new water repllent ES Chincover comes installed on the Signet-X. Enhancing the Egg Shape of the helmet, the cover smooths airflow, increases exhaust from the mouth area and reduces wind noise coming up from below. Good for both cold and warm weather riding and is easy to remove and reinstall as needed.
ODOR RESISTANT LINER: The odor resistant liner material on the Signet-X resists the build-up of bacteria and as a result allows your helmet to stay fresher, longer, between cleanings.
VAS-MV PINLOCK ANTI-FOG LENS: The Signet-X comes with the VAS-MV (Max Vision) shield that accepts the new VAS-MV Pinlock lens. The new Pinlock-120 lens comes with the helmet in the box and ready to install.
It's good. I feel invincible when I wear it. I don't do any crazy stuff, so...
It's lightweight and the air blows through the slots to keep my noggin cool.
Very reasonable price point.

Switching to the Five Ten shoe has been amazing. The stiffness and grip - and the confidence - on the pedals that these shoes provide will definitely improve your rides. I’m able to generate more power with a bit less effort. I ride about 100 miles a week in mixed trail, beach and other conditions. These shoes have really imp to over the fun and performance. Essential equipment for the serious open pedal rider!
Finally used for the first time today. Installation was very easy. The front slide made it easy to load the kayak. I have a 4 Runner and once I lifted the kayak to the slides just had to push the kayak up into place. Would definitely recommend these.
I use these shoes on my gravel bike. They fit well and have great stiff soles. I really like the synthetic materials--they stay clean out here in the AZ desert, but when riding in the dirt or through the local summer streams, they clean off simply by hosing them down, and then they quickly dry. They are great shoes, and would buy them again. They were promptly delivered and had a great price.
My wife rode padded saddles on our tandems, mostly gel. After a certain amount of time riding, she would have to shift or get off the saddle for a moment of relief. That could be as often as a few minutes near the end of a ride of say 25 miles. I got her the B17S carved saddle to try. She was skeptical, but tried it. She found it so comfortable even as a new saddle, she no longer needs the relief breaks. She has 3 of them on our tandems and her single. I also use the B17 carved and the B17 Special on several bikes, highly recommended.
