If only it were 300.
I agree. My last bellwas a disappointment too. The only helmet coming second to arai is my tourqe.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...
I have a qwest too and I stopped wearing it because it's too bulky.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.
Well for 600 your in a nice arai that fits awesome and looks low profile compared to any other helmet I have seen.D4N63R said:I'm not understanding all this expensive talk. A well made ece22.05 snell 2010 helmet for $400 is at the lower end of the scale. I can't even imagine the tech that had to be crammed into that tiny chin bar for the helmet to pass. The price seems bang on to me.
I'm in Canada and I have found mid of the line arai helmets in various places online for less than 600. You also can't compare this novelty like helmet to the corsair as its the top of the line arai helmet that even moto gp riders wear.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.
RF1100 in canada. canadasmotorcycle is always cheaper then any local shop i have. I'm sure you can find old stock somewhere for less. but this is the going rate up here.Tim said:Paid less than $400 for my RF1100. RF1200's are $440 at Revzilla and likely cheaper elsewhere (and RF1100's should be bargain priced).
I don't know man. I have zero problems getting my shit a good prices which for the most part never involves a Canadian retailer.D4N63R said:"doesnt ship to canada"
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
