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 95 95
Good Overall A great helmet for fast riding. City riding not so much, and also the cheekpads are very flimsy and might have to change them after less than 3 months of use. June 15, 2015
Finally a comfortable helmet! Spent a lot of time trying on helmets with no success. Read about aria helmets and thought the price was higher than some but if it fits it's worth it. This helmet is so comfortable and light weight I would recommend it to anyone, especially a female! The comfort with the cheek pads are beyond expectations. I had the most trouble finding the right fit before this helmet. Smells were too small and mediums were too big. The size small in the aria helmet fit as though it were custom made. The view is amazing and the vents are great. This helmet has everything a beginner to intermediate could need. I need to spend more time switching shields though as it's easy to take off but more difficult to put back on. I am extremely happy with my purchase!!! June 29, 2015
Arai Vector 2 VS Shoei RF 1200 There is something called "confirmation bias" where a person positively will rate an item higher then it really is to justify their purchase. In my case I was absolutely hoping to prove to myself that my Shoei RF1200 was a superior helmet to the Arai Vector 2 because I was very satisfied with my Shoei, but I wanted to see what all fuss was about with Arai, so I gave it a go. I must say, I now know why everyone seems to love Arai helmets. It' hard to describe, but this helmet is greater then the sum of its parts. I look for some key ingredients when I purchase a helmet and those are: 1.) It needs to be light 2.) It needs to flow a ton of air (I live in the dessert and it's hot) 3.) It needs to not make my head look like I have a fish bowl on top of me. Large profile helmets look ridiculous 4.) It needs to have a very wide field of vision 5.) It needs to fit properly. I don't really care so much about a quiet helmet because I wear ear plugs, but the Arai is still pretty quiet, but the Shoei might edge it in quietness (very close IMO). The Arai meets all of the above criteria and right when you put it on you know there is something different about this lid. The fit is perfect for me. When you set the Arai next to my Shoei RF1200, the Arai looks to be a tiny tad larger, but when you put the Arai on my head, it actually "smaller" then the Shoei RF1200, and the only thing I can conclude is that the base of the Arai is wider at the neck preventing that "light bulb" shape look causing me to look like the Great Gazzoo. The air flow in insane. Seriously, this is where it blows my Shoei out of the water. I ride in 100 degree temps and when I am going down the road at 65 mph, I literally can feel my lips blowing due to the amour of air coming in, it's that good! If I get up to speed (over 85mph), my eyes will water from the wind coming in through the eye ports! Which bring me to the next huge thing is the visor on the Arai has these little air vents that click open and pipe a good amount of air right at my eyebrow location. This must be some sort of patent for Arai, because why every helmet manufacturer doesn't do this is beyond me? At speed in full tuck, I give the edge to the Shoei for buffeting less then the Vector 2, but at the 3/4 or upright position i give the edge to Arai Vector 2. When side checking to change lanes, I give the edge to Arai. On fit and finish, I give the win to Arai. I got the Vector 2 Crutchlow lid so it's fairly high viz and has a matte finish to it. My Shoei RF1200 is very nice and it's a shiny finish so it's not really an apples to apples comparison on exterior finish. But I like the vents and buckle better on the Arai. One area that the Shoei seems to excel is the changing of the visor. The Arai gets some getting used to and I know this operator error on my part, but I had a heck of time changing out my shield to dark smoke on my Vector 2. I have seem guys at the track change out their shields in 3 seconds so I just have to get the hang of it. But the Arai has a wider field of vision then my Shoei RF1200. It's tough to cough up 5 bills for a lid, but I'm kind of a gear nut so I put money into helmets and don't feel one bit bad about it, because in an "OFF" I think this lid will pay me back in spades. May 13, 2015
Awesome ventilation This is my first helmet, so I don't have a whole lot of other helmet experience to compare to, but I am really pleased with it. I actually bought it from the dealer the day I bought my bike, so I had the chance to try on a lot of other helmets and the Arai fit my roundish oval head the best. The air flow is utterly amazing. Whoever designed the brow vents is a genius. The brow vents are so awesome I don't think I ever want a helmet without them. It feels like you're riding around with the visor up. I will definitely buy an Arai again May 3, 2015
Typical Arai quality Let's start off with it's an Arai. This is my 5th or 6th Arai. Been wearing them for many years. It is lighter then the one I am replacing (Quantum II). There seems to be more field of view. It is considered Arai's entry-level helmet but this term is misleading, it is a fantastic value. Fyi, this helmet has the 2013/2014 graphic but the distributor ordered a new batch and it was manufactured in 2015 so it has the full five-year warranty. No guarantees they all are but it was a nice surprise. May 25, 2015
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. :) Overall a great helmet and worth the money. May 22, 2015
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

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Jack J: Arai quality, and good looks never hurts. Jun 8, 2015
J U: Fits my long oval head really well. Have had this helmet for a couple of years now. It's quiet and all-day, every day comfortable. Worth the extra $$ for an Arai. Jun 1, 2015
Stephen H: I had an Arai helmet before - an Astral-x. I was impressed with the overall quality, and it's very comfortable.Now its time for a replacement, going with another Arai was a no brainer. The vector 2 has great features, gets great reviews, and the price seems reasonable considering the quality and features. May 9, 2015
Paul S: Replaced identical crash-tested helmet (I'm fine, bike's fixed, no worries). Mar 1, 2015
Chuck L: 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
