The helmet fits great. The pin lock insert is trash. Mine was scratched when unwrapped from the original packaging. The helmet has numerous ways to customize the fit for your head. By far the most comfortable helmet I've owned.

The dark smoke is perfect for the mountain rides when the sun is super bright. It also limits some glare.

It is in most categories but you're going to buy it for that shade visor right? DON'T. It flips down when wind catches it the wrong way and can be alarming if not dangerous depending on the situation. Plus with it being on the outside vs inside like most other manufactures, you have to clean 2 visors and the shade visor is not easy to clean as it gets debris on the underside. It's a shame Arai spent so little time engineering and testing this new feature. It's a fail! I ripped mine off mid ride after the 4th time it flipped down in less that 3 hours.

I'm a 35 year Arai user. Quality is top-notch as always. Fit is exceptional. It's a great concept they've come up with; 3/4 open face with extra protection. The cheek area protrudes forward for extra protection and the way the shield closes there is great face and chin protection, as the shield is super strong. The peripheral view on this helmet is more than any other I've ever worn and the visor is very useful for my application. A++

I waited a year to post my review. I ride a Victory Hammer without a windshield. This helmet provides amazing air flow in the heat. When vents are closed up it does great in the rain and cold. I gave the fit 4 stars only because the fit chart put me in a small and I needed a medium. I wasn't to sure on the sun visor, I absolutely love it now! I ride when it's pretty cold out and the Pin lock anti fog lens is amazing as well. This was the most I have ever spent on a helmet, and I would do it again!

Although a bit pricey The Arai Vector 2 is the best helmet I've ever owned. After 2 years it still fits and works like new with only minor cleaning and maintenance. Vision Excellent !Air flow Excellent. Finish Excellent ! well worth the money !
