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 4.8 5 88 88
Adjustable shape for nonstandard heads I've got a very odd head shape, and was directed to the Vector-2. With the tear out 5mm pads inside I was able to get it perfectly into shape for me. It's quiet and it fits well, and the visibility and airflow are great. March 1, 2015
Best Helmet I've Ever Worn Lightweight, great fit, comfortable, excellent wind protection. Highly recommended. Been riding for a year and searching for the right fit during that time. This is hands down the best I've come across or tried. February 27, 2015
Comfiest helmet ever This is my third helmet and I'm very happy with it. The first two were made for a different head shape than mine (which is fairly round). The good: The liner is very plush, field of vision is very wide and the ventilation is good. I can ride for a very long time, even with a thin balaclava underneath. It is very comfortable! The pinlock sheild/lens system is excellent at preventing fog and is great at keeping rain out. Noise level is ok, not super quiet. The annoying: Arai missed the boat by not including a chin skirt! This causes air to whoosh around my face and makes the helmet a little louder. My hack for this is to use a Scorpion EXO-500 Aero Skirt (i have an XS helmet). It fits pretty well and prevents so much air flow. Others have mentioned an HJC skirt but this doesnt fit an xs size helmet. It's not perfect but if it fits your head i highly recommend this helmet.. January 11, 2015
Great Helmet! I bought this to replace my 6 year old Vector 1. Love the helmet! It fit a little different than my Vector 1. But with the adjustable cheek pads, I had it fitting perfect in minutes. Got the High Viz and glad I did. My riding partners say the color hurts their eyes.....Its working! February 23, 2015
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. 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. The ear cavities are generously cut so I've been able to fit my Bluetooth speakers easily. The multiple air intakes work quite well here in SoCal, and flow fresh air at speed. 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. Really if you can afford this helmet, buy it! February 16, 2015
All around great helmet In the middle of winter here so I've been wearing it around the house to break it in. Yes, my wife is afraid. I've owned a Vector 2 before so my ratings are based on previous experience. I expect this one to be no different. Watch the Arai video on how to change the shield. It's much easier than some people think. Takes about 20 seconds, including the Pro Sun Shield. Excellent finish inside and out. I've owned many different brands, but I keep coming back to Arai. To me, they really do look and feel better. February 9, 2015
Right Shape for an Oddly-Shaped Head This is my first time owning an Arai. My head is shaped such that most helmets are too round, making for an uncomfortable pressure point on my forehead. Not so with the the Vector 2. Having tried on other Arai helmets before, I was fairly certain that this would fit correctly. It did. Airflow is great, it is light, doesn't look like I'm wearing a jack-o-lantern, and the vision is great for somewhat upright to somewhat sporting riding positions. I elected to remove the nose diffuser due to my Italian heritage (Read: nose hits it). This isn't an issue in an Icon helmet, for example, but what the Arai offers is a form that is much truer to your face and head, not just your tape measure size. January 13, 2015
I'm Lovin' It! This helmet fits me great and is a step up from the one I was wearing. I feel more secure in it. I have a small oval shaped head and the Arai Vector-2 cradles like a baby.Contrary to some beliefs I ride a Harley and also use this helmet with the pro shade system and love it! November 14, 2014

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Paul S: Replaced identical crash-tested helmet (I'm fine, bike's fixed, no worries). Mar 1, 2015
A S: I have been riding since 1974 and have never had a high quality proper fitting helmet. With all of the texting drivers I have become more concerned for my safety. I began researching helmets and thought I had decided on a Shoei RF1200. After trying one on I wasn't sold on the fit so I decided to look at Arai helmets based on all the positive reviews. Once I pur the Vector 2 on my head I was amazed at the comfortable snug fit plus my prescription glasses fit. I just completed my order,can't wait. Aug 27, 2014
Paul S: replacement for previous Arai Vector - quiet and fits great! Aug 12, 2014
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
