Arai Vector 2 Schwantz Helmet
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!

I wear this yellow helmet in full black leather pants, jacket, gloves, boots most of the time. Standard motorcycle, Ducati Monster 696 '13.
Reporting after 18 months. The top vents, front and back are very delicate. One drop onto a locker room floor from a 2 ft bench is enough to crack them. Fortunately they are replaceable. Order several sets of air vents per year at $75. The eyebrow vents flow considerably, enough to make the eyes water on a cold morning. The eyebrow vents are limited in the number of openings/closings they can take, or falls, after which they need to be replaced as they will not hold lock position. The lock tab with slight visor crack (de-misting purposes) for over 65 mph is a bad design; the tab is thin and weak and requires considerable stress on the tab to insert--only a handful of uses is enough to require a new lock tab purchase.
Have ridden this in mild southern California, as well as 90 percent humidity Florida in the summertime. Air flow is exceptional, really no need to go half shell or zero helmet like so many riders in the south. Just be in shape and be under 10% body fat.

Arai Quality at a Fair Price.
I've only ridden with this helmet for 200-300 miles but I really like it. I've been riding with a modular for the last 10 years and decided I needed to go with a safer helmet. I also purchased the shade system and pinlock insert and both work very well. I have always worn a large and after watching the fitment video and checking out Arai's website I realized I was probably wearing too big of a lid. I gave the medium a try, and yes it was tight at first, but after a couple of hours it is incredibly comfortable. I did have to adjust the top liner but that's the beauty of this helmet, Arai built that function in. One of the most important things to me was being able to wear my glasses and even though this helmet fits snug they've made it very glasses friendly. Great product and great tips on fitment from RevZilla.

Worth the $$
Coming from an older Suomy Spec1R to this Arai...
Fit was typical narrow oval of Arai. Noise level suprisingly low.
Love the hi-vis aspect. You will stand out in traffic!

Arai is all you need. Amazing helmet!
When it comes to helmets, there are so many manufactures that offer their idea of what a helmet should be. Arai is what everyone tries to accomplish. They are the bench-marking helmet manufacture. I will not own any other brand of helmet. Once you ride with one, you'll forever be hooked with the brand.
Excellent build quality
Light and durable
Great looking helmet

Huge fan of Arai helmets!
This is my second Arai helmet and I normally wear a medium size: it fits like a dream. The vents work extremely well and I wore it during some humid temps, I was quite comfortable. I didn't find the helmet to be excessively noisy. And I can't help but love the diamond paint finish in dark blue. Feels slightly retro to me.

Very fast shipping from Rev Zilla. This hlmet looks great in matte black and fits my head the best. I've always had luck with Arai's and I firmly believe they are one of, if not THE safest helmet brand you can put on your head. Vents very well and is amazing bang for the buck. I looked at this helmet and the Shoei RF-1200 and I always came back to the Arai after comparing them. Overall a great helmet and a worthwhile purchase!!!
