Looking for a new helmet but I really don't want to pay the minimum advertised price that Arai has conveniently set. If there are any vendors that are able to wiggle down the price some, please reach out!

Unfortunately that is par for the course. Arai does not discount nor do retailers.

The only discount I ever got for an Arai was when I had a racer discount from Cycle Gear, and during one of those 10% off days at Road Rider.

I always take notice when people mention Arais. Are you familiar with the helmet shapes? Are you sure you want an Intermediate Oval shaped helmet?
Have you worn other helmets and ended up with a red spot on your forehead after wearing other helmets?


As Stan has said, Arai does not allow\provide leeway for discounting their helmets. Pretty much the cost you see and site 1, will be the same at site 2, 3, 4, etc.
Best you can do is free shipping and fine a stellar return policy if it doesn't fit right.

Yes I was able to ride with an AGV, Shark, and Arai RX-7 as well as try on the RF-1200 and the full Arai lineup. The extra room in the Signet-Q is unnecessary for my head and the fit in the RX-7, RX-Q and Vector 2 is spot on.

I've asked around at some local shops and they would be able to work on the price some for me. Not sure how much yet though.

Great, I love my Signet-Q
I never knew how good a helmet could fit.
