what is the improvement in the signet-q other than the $150 price increase?
In most respects, the Signet-Q is a long oval version of the RX-Q, designed for more a more upright riding position as well.

Compared to the Profile, the Signet-Q has:
  • A new wider viewport
  • The new SAI shield with an inset pinlock that is the same size as the viewport. Clear Pinlock is included with helmet.
  • Tighter fit on the lower jaw area to help with fit and lower wind noise.
  • Peel away 5mm spacers in the liner temple area to adjust the shape if your head isn't as narrow.

I'm also a Profile wearer, and my Profile is due for replacement maybe next year... I've been starting to look for another Long-Oval that fits me. I tried on a Signet-Q and it it fits okay, but not as well as the Profile. I have a little bit of a point to the top of my forehead that I feel pressure on in the Signet-Q, but not in my Profile. Is it because the Profile is broken in? Maybe, but I don't think so.
