Everything you want. Nothing you don't.
Introducing the Vector 2, the latest version of Arai's hugely-popular less-is-more Vector model. Specifically crafted for the rider who doesn't need all the bells and whistles of other Arai models. But who can't imagine not getting the Arai family's unmatched three generations of handmade magic with care and craftsmanship, rider protection, performance, comfort and fit.
The kind that's earned Arai 12 straight J.D. Power and Associates Number One rankings for Customer Satisfaction - while no other brand has earned even one!
(The fact that the Vector 2 costs a little less doesn't hurt either!)
What becomes immediately obvious is that, while still adhering to its less-is-more design intent, the new Vector 2's impressive array of features, benefits, updates and upgrades results in an Arai helmet in which more costs less.
The Vector 2's CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell utilizes Arai's proprietary aerospace fiberglass technology to achieve a strong, flexible shell in a lightweight package
NEW! Chinvent Design
The placement of the new chinvent design within the Vector 2's chinbar gives it a distinctive look all its own - while flowing a lot of air into the interior
A rubber breathguard also comes as standard equipment
This design encircles the bottom of the shell, enhancing shell strength (in an area where some manufacturers actually reduce shell material)
The Hyper-Ridge also provides a larger opening in the bottom of the helmet, making it easier to get the helmet on and off - without either adding weight or increasing the shell size
NEW! ACR-2 Vents (Rear Ventilation)
Turned rear vent/ wing: New ACR-2 rear exhaust vent/ wing combo features wind-tunnel tuned air inlets that accelerate the airflow over the large exhaust-vent holes, greatly improving ventilation performance by markedly increasing the efficiency of interior stale-air and heat removal
A single large slider easily operates all three vents simultaneously
Organic Shell Shape
The Vector 2 is another example of Arai's organic shell design philosophy - an Arai helmet shape is created to conform more closely to the human head shape, making it look better and "flow" better in the wind
Arai believes this shaping is best done by human hands and experience - not computers
"Computers solve things mathematically. Hands build for humans."
NEW! Fully-Removable Liner
An upgrade from the previous Vector's fixed liner, the Vector 2 gives you a fully removable liner
Further, it is designed with a full-perimeter crown pad with minimal frame support for increased comfort
The removable/ replaceable cheekpads also have removable washable covers for easier, thorough cleaning
NEW! ACF-2 (Front Ventilation)
New ACF-2 front intake vent has an oversized intake opening for better airflow, and a sliding-door mechanism to more completely close it
The Vector 2 features larger side exhaust ports at the bottom rear to increase airflow while at the same time working to reduce noise levels
The new Vector 2's faceshield eyeport features the same extremely-wide peripheral view of Arai's top-of-the-line Corsair V racing helmet, and RX-Q - 5mm on each side - providing better side-to-side visibility and awareness of the world around you
Arai's multi-density EPS liner is like no other, comprised of up to 5 different densities in some models - and molded into a single piece
Arai pioneered this technology more than 20 years ago and is still - to our knowledge - the only helmet offering a 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.)
The incredible feature of the 5mm peel away cheekpad layer, first introduced on the RX-Q and now available on the Corsair V, is standard on the Vector 2
This feature gives you the option of a thinner cheek pad set, for a custom micro-fit, without having to purchase an optional cheek pad set
Expanding on the benefits of the 5mm peel-away cheekpad design, the Vector 2 is the first model to incorporate 5mm peel away temple pads
Adding to the benefits of multiple interior shapes, this feature now takes micro fitting within an interior shape to a higher level, giving you advantages offered only by Arai
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
Standards: Meets or exceeds both Snell and DOT
