Been Around the Block
If only it were 300.
Drewski said:Arai... best helmet I've ever owned. Period.
I've had Bell, Simpson, Shoei, etc. The Arai fit's me best, bar none. 8)
I'm due for a new one too, now that I think about it...
ronnie said:Drewski, did you try on a bunch of different helmets? I know they have a bunch of different head shapes to choose from, how did you know which one to choose? I have a Shoei Qwest and though its comfy and quite, I find its a little bulky and it tends to tilt up. I find I have to pull the chin down and reposition at times.

D4N63R said:$600 is 50% more then this helmet not to mention I cant get a single color arai for less then $800 in canada... A corsair looks just as big as any other full face helmet, I realize they run more shell sizes then anyone else so I guess you could say their medium is going to be a touch lower profile then a company that uses the same shell for m-l but its not going to be enough to notice at a glance. I think the over sized visor opening is fooling with your eyes. I'll wait to see one in person next to a regular eye opening full face, i bet there is little to no difference.
The only bell ive put on that gives me big head syndrome is the 500.

and the vector 2 is nothing like a corsair, they are 2 totally different helmets both in fit and build quality, I know this because a vector 2 doesn't fit me worth a crap, it fits just like a shoei, round head. The corsair fits me like a dream. A vector 2 is no better then anything else in the $300-$400 price range. I would put the HJC RPHA-10 ahead of the vector for me, feels WAY better and is 100+ cheaper. The Vector is the same damn helmet arai has been making since the beginning of time with a few new vents added. It doesn't get all the good updates the corsair does. I'll never talk down a Corsair, but the vector is just riding on the name of arai and should be priced the same as the HJC, shoei and bell
