Arai Vector-2 and RX-Q Motorcycle Helmets

Arai Helmet, Inc., makers of class-leading, handmade helmets for more than six decades, has announced that two exciting new graphics on their popular Vector-2 and RX-Q models are now available for purchase in the U.S.

The new RX-Q Flame design, from the famed studio of Aldo Drudi, takes its inspiration from the stylish paint jobs hot rodders have applied to their rides for decades. Traditional flame graphics lay over a base of linear and gradient forms, perfectly combining old and new. Just like those hot-rod machines of old, this one definitely stands out on the road.

Key features of the RX-Q include Arai’s unique Facial Contour System (FCS) cheek pads, providing riders with stability and comfort for all-day riding, a Dry-Cool liner for superior moisture wicking and heat management, and peel-away temple and cheek pad layers for a truly personalized fit.

Not to be outdone, the new Vector-2 Contest design incorporates that longstanding symbol of racing victory, the checkered flag, with striking design. Featuring subtle checkered flags on the front and sides, and bold racing stripes from front to back, the Vector-2 Contest is an excellent choice for riders who are looking for a classic, race-inspired style. And with its wider eyeport, updated chinvent design for improved airflow and new, fully removable liner, the Vector-2 has the function to back up its well-executed form. The Vector-2 Contest is available in either Silver or Red.

As with all Arai helmets, both the RX-Q and Vector-2 are the result of a single-minded obsession with protection and quality. Each helmet is hand crafted by skilled artisans as if they were building it for themselves, then sent through two independent quality-control departments before being allowed to wear the Arai name. Arai helmets also feature the foundational R75 shape, providing a rounder, smoother and stronger shell that is better able to divert impact energy by sliding, not catching, on uneven surfaces. Just one more example of the kinds of features that exemplify the Arai Difference.

To see the new RX-Q Flame or Vector-2 Contest graphics in person, visit Arai at the Progressive International Motorcycle Shows. Upcoming dates include Minneapolis (January 17-19), Phoenix (January 24-26) and Cleveland (January 31-February 2). Tickets are available at
