Arai Vector 2 Helmet - Solid Videos

Arai Vector 2 Helmet - Solid

The Arai Vector 2 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..

  • Solid Colors
    • "Frost" indicates a Matte finish
    • "Diamond" refers to a metallic finish with metal flake
  • 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

Arai Vector 2 Helmet - Solid 4.7 5 68 68
Very pleased with this helmet! This fits great and has great air flow. The features on this helmet are way better then my last helmet I had. Overall I would purchase this again if I needed another helmet, and definitely recommend it to other buyers. June 23, 2014
Good overall helmet but not as good as I expected Great comfort and range of vision. Air flow is a bit lack luster and it broke in WAY more than I expected (in comparison to my previous Scorpion Exo-1100). Also not as aerodynamic as I would have expected. Noise level is fairly loud. Even with the negatives, its a good helmet. May 21, 2014
Great helmet I've had several helmets, but this is my first Arai. And it's wonderful. Not fancy, and doesn't have bells and whistles (no chin curtain, no drop down visor, no ratchet system on the strap, no built in Bluetooth), but it's a rock solid helmet. Feels quality, Looks quality, Fits quality. Great airflow. To nitpick, it does feel just slightly tight on my ears (not head, just ears) I only notice after 2-3hours in the saddle, but would hesitate to put in an aftermarket Bluetooth speaker when the ear pocket already feels a bit snug. May 16, 2014
Perfect fit to my round head I have a big round Asian head and it took me a while to find the right helmet. This product maybe basic, nothing too too fancy, but I liked the simplicity of it. And it's the most comfortable helmet by far. (Actually, RX-Q was the most comfortable but it was a bit too expensive for me.) It's a bit heavy but I can live with it. May 5, 2014
great helmet ! My brain don't have a price and Arai meets all the requirements I wanted ! The fit is snug, my glasses fit perfectly with it as I was concerned at first trying to buy an helmet and the visors are really easy to swap once you get use to it ! A bit loud on my Harley but that is because I have a different riding position of what the helmet could have been tested for but I absolutely love it ! would recommend it any time and it's very lightweight for a full face ! May 3, 2014
Safest helmet on the market! I had been looking at arai helmets for a while revzilla has the best price out there. When I got my helmet the first thing I did was check the date that it was made. It was a newer helmet than anything I had seen in any store ( helmets have a 5-7 year expiration). I suggest if you don't know what size helmet to order go to a dealer/store to get measured then order from revzilla. April 21, 2014
Arai is still my favorite helmet! The Vector 2 fits me perfectly. I don't know why it was on clearance as the Bright looks better than any other IMHO. I bought the dark smoke face for it and love not carrying my sunglasses in daylight riding. Changing to the clear is quick for evening riding. No complaints from me, I'm totally happy. May 12, 2014
Bought the HI VIZ for me. Bought the white solid for my son at his request, he liked the fit same size head as mine. March 17, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Glen J: "Arai fits my head better than any other helmet I have tried. Had the factory reps at Americade for most of the other majors give up and tell me that I could not use their helmet. The Arai is perfect." Jun 16, 2014
Yuki T: I'm an Asian woman with big round head with chubby cheeks. When I tried an RX-Q for the first time, it was a whole new world. I tired many other brands but none of them weren't even close to the Arai quality. RX-Q was too expensive for a beginner rider like myself, so I was happy to find out about Vector 2 which is cheaper but still provide comfort and safety. Not sure how its weight will be a problem in the future, but so far I'm super excited to own this helmet very soon. Apr 17, 2014
Guy R: High quality helmet. Excellent guidance from Anthony and the Revzilla team! Apr 4, 2014
Kurt V: Best reviews and after trying it on at a NYC Bike Show it was the one that I felt most comfortable with. Mar 21, 2014
Walter S: Just rode with the Arai Hi-Viz today, 31deg F, venting works really good, bought the solid white for my son at his request, the helmet is comfortable a lot lighter than previous helmet well balanced..... :) Feb 23, 2014
Chris F: Arai's reputation for quality and comfort. Dec 5, 2013
Jan S: I got five years use out of an Arai Corsair, a great helmet, but out of my price range now. This helmet looks like it will be a similar fit...I'm hoping it is. Oct 3, 2013
Zhuoheng L: I know nothing about helmet, just for safety.... Sep 24, 2013
John B: I like Arai helmets Sep 4, 2013
Cheri G: I chose the Vector 2 because it fits my head wonderfully and has really great reviews. The video review on your site also helped in my decision. After watching the video, I spoke with an Arai rep at a dealer event and he gave me an up close demo of the features of the helmet. Plus I know I'm super safe w/ an Arai! It's the only helmet brand I've owned since I started riding 10 years ago. Aug 13, 2013

WCS4th: Hi Judy!

I have the Arai Vector 2 and I just purchased the Arai SAI Max Vision Pinlock Shield and Inserts with brow vents. They are compatible and work very well with each other. I highly recommend the Arai Max Vision Shields and Inserts if you haven't picked them up already.

Hope this helps.

Best,

Bill

A shopper asked: I have heard that this finish smudges easily, what is the best way to clean (or keep clean) this finish? Aug 2, 2011
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
mmmpies: I've been wearing a black frost Quantum II for about a year now, and find it stays much cleaner than my gloss coat Quantum ever did, mostly because dead bug guts don't adhere to the surface as easily. When it needs some cleaning, about two minutes with a paper towel and Windex is all it takes.

On other thing to note - if you're like me and peel the stickers off, you'll find the matte finish will be and remain slightly less, um...matte-y (for lack of a better term) underneath.

Fred T.: I have had mine for just a few weeks and just use a damp cloth which works fine.
I use plexus on my other helmets and will on this on too, I just haven't needed to yet.
I don't find it hard to keep clean at all.

A shopper asked: I just ordered an Arai Vector 2 in the color "Black Diamond". When reviewing the photos on Revzilla, both the color "Black Diamond" & "Pearl Black" had a reflective shimmer to them and look about identical. What is the difference as I can't seem to find any clear difference between the two. I recently bought a Ducati Sport 1000 S in black, and I'd like my helmet to match my bike. My bike doesn't have a metallic shimmer in the black paint-job, so which is the better color to choose?

Dean S: I purchased the white pearl Vector 2 last Summer. There are very small metallic flakes in the finish. You really have to look closely to see them. (They might show up more with the black color.) Have you called a rep at Revzilla? When I ordered mine, I called and the rep did a great job explaining the difference so I could make my decision. When the helmet arrived it was just as described. I have been extremely happy with this helmet. It is comfortable and when using earplugs very little wind noise. I hope this helps. Jun 28, 2014
