The feeling of an Arai Vector Helmet comes from the experience of decades. From the hands, talent, and passion of Arai Helmet craftsmen. The results are organic shell shapes, wind-slicing aerodynamics, a lower center of gravity, incredible balance, light weight. And comfort and fit like no other.
Arai's quality is so singularly advanced that it reaches the world's highest level of racing, a place so technical, so demanding, that most other helmet makers can't even imagine it, let alone compete in it. We're talking about Formula One auto racing
Arai's EPS liner is like no other, comprised of several material densities 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 cell shares with it neighboring cells creates a mutual support - as one 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
NOTE: Besides the protective aspects of Arai's Vector shell material and single-piece EPS liner construction, there is a major comfort bonus for you, the rider: Arai's Snell-certified liners so soft and comfortable they can actually conform to your head shape within several days of continued use, minimizing "hot spots," allowing the most comfortable fit in the best possible (smallest) size that fits you.
These days, there are almost as many "revolutionary" shell-construction materials as there are new helmet brands
Arai's decades of experience, research, testing, comparison and evaluation has led us to conclude that fiberglass-based construction is best at performing a motorcycle-helmet shell's main job - spreading and dissipating impact energy through strength, structural integrity and impact-flexibility
The Vector Helmet's CLC (Complex Laminate Construction) shell utilizes Arai's proprietary aerospace fiberglass technology to achieve a strong, flexible shell in a lightweight package
Organic Shell Shape:
The Vector Helmet 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."
Hand-formed shapes takes much more time, effort, cost and experience to produce, but because they add to the Vector's extra level of unparalleled, handmade riding comfort, we do it
The Vectors' new cheekpad design lets the pads be removed and cleaned more easily
Yet even though they're new, and unique to the Arai Vector, the pads are simpler and more user-friendly
They can also be replaced with one of our optional pads of different thicknesses for a more custom fit (another Arai innovation that's now a common feature among almost all other helmets)
"Customized" cheekpads with a finer made-just-for-you fit are another result of the decades of commitment to every nuance of rider comfort by the Arai people
Rear Vent and Ridge:
Arai Vector's distinctive Hyper-Ridge reinforcement band along the bottom of the shell adds reinforcement and shell strength
What makes this "minor" Arai Helmet feature significant? Many helmet makers reduce the shell material at the bottom of the helmet. But Arai maintains shell thickness to the very edge - and then strengthens it. Why? Because our experience tells us to. And because we don't think it's a good place to try to save a few dollars or a little weight
Strengthening the bottom also helps to significantly lower the helmet's center of gravity, contributing to a better overall balance, making an Arai Vector rest easier on your head
Patented Dual-Pivot Chin Vent:
First introduced by Arai in the late '80s, removable liners have evolved into extremely-comfortable and convenient features
The Vector's fully removable, washable, and replaceable interior comfort-liner components also permit micro-fitting of a helmet in between-size scenarios
Exclusive Brow Vent Faceshield:
Exclusive brow vent faceshield brings fresh air in through the shield and directs it into the forehead area. Arai prefers this method rather than punching extra holes in the critical forehead area which reduces both outer shell and inner EPS liner material where it's needed most
Arai's Vector LRS tool-less shield-removal system has to be one of the most misunderstood shield systems on the planet, but watch racers Nicky Hayden and Kenny Roberts, Jr. swap Arai faceshields on video while wearing the helmet and you see for yourself how really easy it is
Riders ask us why Arai continues to use side pods when others have gone pod-less? After all, pod-less systems are easier to make, requiring a simple flat surface beneath the pivot point. Yet experience says that flat spots in the curved shell shape diminish shell integrity, whereas continuing the shell's three-dimensional curve beneath the shield pivot-points (that nobody sees) maintains shells integrity
Our way is complicated and costly, requires a significant commitment of R&D resources, and is possible only with the experience and talent capable of creating a system of pod components that must incorporate extremely difficult compound curves in order to work with the shell's "natural" curvature
