Arai Vector 2 Blarney Irish Helmet

The Arai Vector 2 Motorcycle Helmet is the successor to Arai's hugely popular Vector model. New features for the Vector 2 Helmet include an SAI visor similar to RX-Q and Corsair V which provides wider field of vision. A replaceable interior liner has been modified to improve air flow around the head and to provide a more comfortable fit eliminating pressure points. The ventilation system has been revamped with a larger size switch and larger rear duct which will create 50% more vacuum.

Features:

  • Complex Laminate Construction (CLC) shell that combines excellent shell integrity with light weight
  • Arai's exclusive multi-density, single piece hybrid EPS liner
    • Arai's multi-density EPS liner is like no other, comprised of up to 5 different densities in some models which is molded into a single piece 
    • The single-piece hybrid liner and its unique benefit: the direct-fused contact area that each EPS call shares with its neighboring cells creates a mutual support - as one cell is crushed under impact, the surrounding cells assist with the energy absorption. (Liner pieces that are simply fitted or glued together cannot rely on such a high-level support bond.) 
  • New ACF-2 front intake vent has an oversized intake opening for better airflow, and a sliding-door mechanism to more completely close it
  • Brow Vent Faceshield Ventilation System provides cooling air in upper face area without holes in critical forehead area of the shell or in the impact-absorbing liner material
  • Exclusive removable 5 mm Peel - away Cheek and Temple Pad layer-provides additional level of customization and fitment
  • Extreme peripheral view - same wider field of side to side visibility as the top-of-the-line Corsair V racing helmet (an additional 5mm on each side when compared to to previous Vector model)
  • New tuned rear vent/wing - Air inlets provide improved interior ventilation and heat removal
  • Hyper-Ridge band - newly sculpted lower reinforcement band provides stability and lower center of gravity for a lightweight feeling.
  • Larger side exhaust ports to increase airflow and minimize noise
  • Dual pivot chin vent to direct air to the rider or the shield for de-misting
  • Reinforced shell ridges with integrated side exhaust vents
  • Larger bottom opening for easier on and off
  • Removable/replaceable cheek pads with 5mm peel-away layer
  • Micro-fitting:
    • 5mm peel away cheek pad layer first introduced on the RX-Q comes standard on the Vector 2.  
    • Gives you the option of a thinner cheek pad set for a custom fit without having to purchase additional cheek pads
    • Expanding on the 5mm peel-away cheek pads, the Arai Vector 2 is the first Arai model to offer 5mm peel away temple pads as well
  • Interior Shape:
    • Intermediate Oval - This shape is designed for the rider whose head has a front-to-back dimension that is longer than the side-to-side dimension. This is a neutral head-shape design which tends to fit most riders well.
  • Meets or exceeds Snell M2010 and D.O.T. standards

Worth Every Penny
This is a great helmet for many reasons. I know its expensive, but the level of comfort and protection it offers makes it worth it. I live in Southern California so it can get very hot. This helmet has an awesome ventilation system, I can actually feel the cool air on my head. I upgraded my visor as well to the proshade system. It is a little tricky to switch out visors on this helmet and I need a tinted visor during the day. The fit is great and doesn't give me a headache as others have. Its fairly quiet too. And lets not forget the design, I'm a Irish girl so this is sooo me. :)<br>Overall a great helmet and worth the money.

Evolving the Quality
This is my 5th Arai Helmet over a 25 year time span. I have a head size that falls between a long oval and an intermediate oval and this helmet fits me well. No "hot spots" in the forehead after hours of riding and I can tell it will be comfortable even for our Vegas Valley summer. Arai quality has always been excellent and I feel it is constantly getting better. This Vector 2 is better than my 6 year old Corsair. Visibility is enhanced with a wider window and the overall weight is lighter. I do miss having a drop down chin deflector but I am very happy with this helmet.

This helmet is pretty sweet. It's comfortable, light, and has that arai feel to it. Quality is top notch. All in all, it wears really well, looks good, and is light.

Excellent helmet, quality and style package, user configurable and accepts blue tooth speakers well
I really love this helmet, the colors and style are outstanding as is the finish. I also give it high marks for quality in materials and construction. It is my best helmet decision by far.<br>I was a little worried about the fit as normally I am an XL, but selected an L as the only choice being available at the time I ordered. Thanks to the top notch customer service at Revzilla and a personal conversation with Ethan I took the plunge and ordered the L. To my surprise the helmet arrived within 2 days! Trying it on I found the fit on the tight side (no surprise) but with the modifiable nature of Arai's excellent construction was able to arrive at a cheek pad configuration that fit me snugly and safely. For insurance I've ordered a second set of cheek pads as back up to my personal modifications.<br>The ear cavities are generously cut so I've been able to fit my Bluetooth speakers easily.<br>The multiple air intakes work quite well here in SoCal, and flow fresh air at speed.<br>One small constructive criticism is that the shield lift point can be difficult to push past the detent. Once closed the shield seals very well and helps the overall noise level to stay down....however as new it is pretty snugly cinched down and one glove handed shield push ups can be finicky as you coast to a light or stop.<br>Really if you can afford this helmet, buy it!

Long live Ireland
Awesome helmet. I stepped up from an intro helmet made by Bilt, from cycle gear. The fit is perfect neither large nor small. The fit is snug which I like particularly. If you watch the video on this helmet everything turns out exact. It does what it's supposed to and more. My only dislike would have to be the side pods changing lens is an easy process at first. All and all great buy. Arai seems to be top notch.

Typical Arai
Meaning great fit and finish. A nice quality helmet. My Bell spanks the Arai in vent flow and simple shield replacement, Both Arai week points for me. But Bell is messing up and only offering the retro helmets in an off the shelf hi end helmet so it's back to the Arai for me

Needed a new helmet, all my helmets are over 5 years old and I ride daily. Arai is my favorite helmet brand. I've never found a better fitting or more comfortable helmet. Shoei is a close second. I also own Shark, AGV, OGK and TLD.

with the medium and large, do they share the same shell size? is it just the removable padding that is different thicknesses?
if i buy a medium can i change the padding to make it a large or vice-versa.
A shopper on Apr 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sorry I can't answer the shell size question. I'd call Revzilla and ask. I can say all of the cheek pads are interchangeable across the range. I changed cheek pads and was downsizing from an XL to an L.
Look up the cheek pad sizes for the Arai under the helmet accessories section. I hope this helps!
I would really like to get this helmet. However I am usually an Extra Large on the helmet side......but a "small" extra large if that makes sense. I note that the XL size is out on this helmet. Therefore two questions:
1. Do you have an XL hiding around on a back shelf there at Revzilla someplace by any chance?
2. Do you think this helmet may run a trifle large and that trying the regular large is worth the time and trouble?
Garey C on Jan 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: The Arai is a PERFECT fit for my head which is normal in shape, so if you take a XL in an Arai you need an XL a smaller size will be too tight and a larger size too loose, you may be able to downsize your cheek pads but like I said its a perfect fit, its the best helmet I have ever worn in 25yrs of motorcycling, my only tiny tiny criticism is it is slightly on the heavy side, but last track day I did I really didn't notice it, it also has awesome peripheral vision and very efficient venting to keep the cranium cool as a cucumber. BUY one NOW, plus if you are of Irish descent like myself you will also look super COOL !!! And of course the wee man on the back with his tankard full of speed and rainbows will bring you luck haha Andy McGee New Zealand.
