* New for this year, the Vector is really a major renovation of the Astral Series introduced a few years ago. Think of a new and improved Astral with a removable liner!
* Its most striking features, visually, are the unique molded lines running front to back along the lower shell, making the new Vector look different than other Arai helmets. The shell itself has Arai's exclusive CLC (Complex laminate construction) that is both strong yet light in weight, and Arai's latest Organic Shell Shape, designed to be both more natural looking and to enhance the helmet's abliity to cut through the wind more cleanly, thereby reducing buffeting and making it more "still" in turbulence than previous models.
* The slim, sleek SAJ faceshield sidepods are the same ones used on the latest RX-7 Corsair model, as is the new breathguard design that better directs fresh air to the inside surface of the shield while at the same time directing hot breath down and away from the inside surface of the shield.
* The Vector Series of helmets was born of Arai's never-ending search for the best fit for the most riders. The Intermediate Oval shell design provides a fit not found in other Arai models.* Arai offers the Vector in Flourescent Yellow for hi-viz during low-light conditions
