Arai Vector 2 Hawk Helmet

The Arai Vector 2 Helmet is the successor to Arai's hugely popular Vector model. Features for the Arai Vector 2 Helmet include an SAI face shield which provides a 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. The Arai Vector 2  has been created for the rider who doesn't need bells and whistles, but still demands a finely crafted and protective helmet.

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.) 
  • 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 Face Shield 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
  • Extreme peripheral view - same wider field of side to side visibility as the Corsair V racing helmet (an additional 5mm on each side when compared to to previous Vector model)
  • 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
  • 5mm peel away temple pads
  • Meets or exceeds Snell M2015 and DOT standards

Still a Lot to Learn
Sometimes being new to the fun and excitement of riding has a steep learning curve. Some things can only be learned by trial and error. Gear, for those of us who believe in ATGATT, can get confusing. The good news is there are a tremendous amount of things to choose from, and a tremendous amount of information available. That is also the bad news.

I had no idea what a motorcycle helmet was supposed to feel like. I am also claustrophobic. So grabbing an XXL seemed like a good bet. A week later I realized that while not pushing my enclosure panic button too much, the helmet was way too big. It felt tight to me but an instructor almost turned it 180 on my head. Ok. So I got a XL. That felt much tighter and safer. Didn't make me fell like I was suffocating. Wore it all summer into fall. While talking to a State Trooper, he told me my helmet was too big. What? Not possible. Then he grabbed the back and almost pulled it off my head, chinstrap intact..

Since I want to protect my head I needed a new helmet. One that fit. One that would stay on. One that looked good doing its duty. I put my size 7 1/2 head into a L Arai Vector 2. So THIS is what a helmet is supposed to feel like.

The Vector 2 is light and noticeably smaller overall than my other helmets. It goes on easily and cinches up tight. The field of view does really seem wider. Changing the face shield is very easy. Adding the Pinlock lense is even easier. The blue design gets many compliments. And it really fits. My only complaint is a lot of cold air leaks under my chin. Great in summer I'm sure...not so great in December.

Now I know what a well fitted helmet is supposed to feel like. And I know that this Arai helmet, DOT and Snell approved, will help protect my head from an out of bike experience.

Too Dang Loud!
First let me say that this is a beautiful helmet! The fit and finish are all I would expect in an Arai. This was my first Arai and with all the great reviews I was slightly disappointed. As I said, the fit and finish are awesome. The vision is probably the best on the market, and the shield works great. The guts of the helmet are very comfortable and feels great against the skin. Venting... here is where my disappointment comes in. This helmet vents great. But the down side to that is, it is VERY LOUD. I would NOT recommend this helmet if your are planning long rides. I am a sport touring rider, and very frequently take 1 to 3 day rides. In my opinion, this is not the helmet for those times. With all the vents open, you get massive amounts of ventilation. Which is great for those hot days. But I ride year round. When I close up all the vents on those colder days, or cool mornings, I get many high pitch whistles. It gets so bad, that I have to open the chimney vent, no matter how cold it is. Unfortunatly, I bought this helmet for year round riding, and with all the venting issues, I can only stand wearing it, when I can have all the vents open. Would I buy this model Arai again? No. It is a top of the line helmet however, Arai really needs to refine their vent noise issues. My $200 Scorpion does not have the noise issues that this $500 Arai has. And that to me is unexceptable. It's ashame because the rest of the helmet really is the best.

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.

It matches my bike!

Arai reputation for quality. Color matches my 2013 Honda CB1100. I like the design. My other helmets are getting old. Looking for good protection. Saw a positive review of Revzilla on the CB1100 forum. Free shipping. Revzilla is located relatively close to my home. Competitive price. Other than that I can't think of a single thing.
