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..

  • 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

Great helmet for the money Helmet fits great. And flow keeps your head cool and the mask clear. August 17, 2015
Ventilation to a fault I've had this helmet for a couple years...I really like it. The Hi-viz color really helps to get the attention of car drivers. The airflow is great but there is too much of a good thing. I have never experienced so many LIVE insects getting into my helmet with any other helmet--I can only assume that they are getting in through the vents in this helmet. September 26, 2015
Love it! I had to buy smaller cheek inserts but only because I smile big when riding! September 21, 2015
Quiet & a larger view port The helmet flows air equally as well as the RX7 Corsair it replaced with MUCH LESS wind noise. View port is wider as well. Only negative is the shield is difficult to install it comes out fine but does not want to slip back into place easily this I hope will improve with time and practice. September 21, 2015
Good Improvement This Vector II replaces my older Vector, much the same helmet but it has some thoughtful improvements. It feels lighter and a bit more compact, the view port is wider, and the vents are improved. This is a good, no frills helmet that gets the job done. It also seems a bit more quiet but that is probably due to the new snug fit. It is hard to go wrong if this fits your head shape. As usual, the standard Revzilla shipping delivered it quickly.

Worth the $$$ A minor collision with a sideview mirror in my Bell Bullit necessitated a new helmet purchase. The near miss was a reminder of the importance of safety so I spent more for an Arai. While I miss the super cool retro look of the Bullit, the Arai is vastly more quiet and aerodynamic and that alone is worth the money. The inside padding encases my noggin better, thanks in part to Revzilla's great customer service tips on fitting. Air flow and vision are all great. Here's hoping I won't need to test Arai's great reputation for safety... August 10, 2015
Loud! I'll make this sweet and simple. This is a great helmet with one MAJOR flaw. It is way too loud. So loud I cannot use my Sena headset, and on longer rides I feel I need to wear ear plugs. The fact that my old 100$ Scorpion helmet is much quieter is pretty frustrating considering the amount this helmet cost. July 28, 2015
Solid Helmet I got this helmet right before a 4000 mile road trip over two weeks. Here are my observations during the break-in period. Pros: Good airflow Comfortable padding Looks great De-fogs easily Cons: Slightly short (chin sticks out a bit) Poor front vent placement (I ate a few bugs) Chin strap not well positioned for helmet lock Louder than helmets I've had in the past I have a... long face, so I was initially pretty worried that my chin was sticking out too much, but as the foam was broken in, it because a bit less noticeable. The lower front vent placement on the inside is the only real gripe I have with the product. If the holes were placed just slightly wider, I wouldn't have to drink bug puree. July 13, 2015

Andrew B: Because I like the safety review and the design. Jun 30, 2015
Robert P: Arai makes the best helmet. Love the graphics. Mar 4, 2015
Garey C: I love the graphics on this helmet! Being of Irish descent the shamrock is a perfect touch. And being an Arai the quality will be the best so an easy choice. Mar 3, 2015
Carl A: Because I'm a sweet talking Irishman Apr 25, 2014
Kevin M: Gift for my son! Much better hamlet than what he currently has. Dec 17, 2013
A shopper asked: 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.

Garey C: 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!

Nicolae B: You should check the Arai website to get a definite answer. As far as I know the M size is same as S but less padding. The padding can indeed be changed to make it a titter/looser fit. Apr 13, 2015

David H: Sorry I do not know the answer to that question. I am pleased with my purchase. I did get sized by the Araicrep at the Seattle Motircycle show. Apr 13, 2015

Garey C asked: 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?

Andrew M: 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. Jan 27, 2015

David H: I usually wear a large helmet. At the Seattle Motorcycle Show the Arai display guys....both of them measured me as a medium.....but close to a large. They said I could go with either size. I went with large and it fits fine. I suspect that the medium would have fit well after a few uses. Hope this helps. Love the helmet. Jan 27, 2015
