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 our other 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 on other brand has earned even one!
(The fact that the new 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.
Includes Arai's multi-density EPS liner, which is like no other. It is 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.)
Diamond refers to a metallic finish with metal flake
Intermediate oval fit; 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
