Biltwell Bonanza Helmet - Solid

Biltwell has attacked the status quo with a line of DOT-approved open-face helmets in a whole new range of tough-looking paint finishes. In a few short years, Biltwell open-face helmets have become as common as denim and leather at motorcycle hoedowns from Baja to the Big Apple. There's a Biltwell Bonanza helmet to fit everyone's individual head and style.

This leaner, lighter and even more comfortable DOT-approved 3/4 lid boasts the same hand-painted finishes as Biltwell's other lids on an even lower-profile molded ABS shell. The Bonanza's interior boasts a custom-shaped EPS safety shell and a hand-stitched removable liner with moisture wicking brushed Lycra panels and open-cell foam padding for breathability and comfort. The rugged nylon neck strap features plated steel D-rings and a snap strap end retainer with Biltwell anvil branding.

Bubble Shield available, sold separately.

Great look this product is very good, it is comfortable and good looking. July 27, 2015
Fits a little on the large side Looks great,light weight and good air flow. It does run a little bit big. I'm a xl in all my other helmets , I bought a large and it fits well. July 8, 2015
The most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. I've been riding motorcycles for over thirty years and have gone through a lot of helmets. The Biltwell helmet is the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. July 6, 2015
Great helmet at a great price. I use it when I ride my Road King. Didn't want to invest in another helmet like I wear on my sport bike and this was perfect. I got a large based on the sizing recommendation and it is a really good fit. A hundred dollar helmet that fits and is comfortable. It really has no competitor at this price. I'm probably going to buy another one in a different color. Also bought the face shield and after a couple long rides it had to go. Looks cool, but it make so much wind noise that I had to remove it. June 29, 2015
LOVE! I have three of these.. You can't go wrong.. The root beer one looks a little red though. but still super awesome! June 23, 2015
Super comfy retro helmet Love the helmet. I was going for the bell custom 500 , but the fit was way to tight and look like Marvin the Martian!. I returned the helmet and took a trip to the revzilla store in Philly instead, and glad I did. They were great helping me choose a retro helmet and winded up with the biltwell bonanza xs even though my head measurements will do a sm. the helmet is very light weight and very comfortable , totally recommend it June 15, 2015
Great bucket Wanted an old school helmet but the Bell 500s didn't fit right. Love my Bonanza. Will be buying another. Very comfortable. With the Bell, I couldn't even get my glasses on. Not a problem with the Biltwell. July 26, 2015
Worth every penny This helmet is definitely worth every penny. Although slightly heavier than my last, it's the most comfortable helmet I've owned. June 8, 2015

Craig R: Went with flat black. Looking for old school look with hopefully a low profile in a DOT helmet. Like everyone else hoping it doesn't look ridiculous. Based on all the reviews I read from several sites there were more satisfied than dissatisfied customers in terms of how the helmet looks. I guess we'll see when I get it. Sep 1, 2014
Jean R: Heard so many great things about this helmet. Great buy and very fast shipping from the great folks here at Revzilla. Like most of the sizing reviews here, go down a size after you measure your head circumference. At 22+ in I fell under the Large category, but decided to roll with the Medium and it was a perfect fit. Snug and comfortable. Aug 30, 2014

Thomas F: I was looking for a narrowest / sliimmest / lowest 3/4 face helmet I could find at the lowest price.
Looks like the flat red primer helmet will look OK with my candy apple red Yamaha VStar 650 Classic.

I wish there were more narrow / low/ slim profile helmets available to choose from. They look better.

Johnny W: I chose this helmet based on the retro styling. I ride a custom VW trike and I feel that this helmet will suit me best. Oct 10, 2013

A shopper asked: I have a Licks NOV/DOT, and I am looking for the smallest shell I can get, Does this look like an egg on your head? I like Biltwells Nov 3/4 but would prefer a DOT. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know last years Biltwell Hustler DOT did look like an egg, does this have the same problem? Thank you in advance Sep 1, 2013

lindsey m: Hi there! I actually have tried 3 of the bonanza helmets on trying to get the right fit. According to the size chart I should be a medium, at 55 cm, and it did seem kind of egg like. Once I got down to the xs, which fits me, looks cool. I'd suggest going a size smaller than the chart (basically whatever size you wear in other brands). Sep 11, 2013

christian m: The inner shell is about an inch thick so it does give the appearance of egghead but it is an awesome helmet. A friend of mine has the novelty builtwell and it fits perfect not good for riding though because its not dot certified. Sep 11, 2013

Michael S: yes, this totally looks like an egg on your head. also Biltwell sizes feel larger than other helmets I've tried. I wear an HJC large and it fits perfectly. I ordered a Biltwell large and it did not feel as snug as my HJC Sep 11, 2013

Corey R: You'll definitely look like egghead from batman. it has an oblong fit as well. For me it was fine on the sides but I could fit my entire hand up the back. I ended up buying the Bell 500 which has a good fit for me. Sep 16, 2013

Kristen L asked: How does the size of this helmet compare to the Bell 500 Custom or Z1R Jimmy Retro? My head circumference is 22 1/2" which equates to a large in this helmet. I recently purchased a Bell 500 Custom in Medium but returned it because it was a little too big and pressed on my forehead, and I've tried on a Z1R Jimmy Retro and found the small to be about right. Other peoples reviews suggest that this helmet is better suited for narrower head shape, but I'm worried about the sizing. Aug 23, 2013

Neil W: Kristen - I have a 23.25" circumference head. I originally bought the Bell Custom 500 in large - looks great, good reviews. Unfortunately, I too suffered with the fit. The problem as I see it is that unless you have a head shaped like a golf ball, the helmet won't fit. I have an intermediate oval type head and the 500 pinched real hard on the front and back of my head (to the point of getting a headache) while there were large gaps on the left and right side of my temples. I also had problems with the stitching on the inside liner, but that's a story for another day :) When I spoke to Revzilla customer service they suggested I try the Biltwell Bonanza because it has a more ergonomic shape. Biltwell's sizing is different from Bell's. I needed a L in the Bell and a XL for the Bonanza. The fit is true to form. It fits really well. Snug all the way round without pinching. It's definitely been developed for a rider with a narrower shaped head. I had some problems with the finish of the trim on the black gloss model, so I returned it and ordered the matte black. It arrived today and I'm pleased to say that the quality is tip top.

Big thanks to Revzilla customer service for all their help.

johann f: I have the bell custom 500 and for some reason the bell is a tighter fit. I got both helmets in large and the Biltwell fits perfect out of the bag and the Bell fits but I have to break it in because it "feels" as if it's a half centimeter tighter in circumference. I hope this helps Aug 26, 2013

Patrick H: I had a similar experience choosing between the Bell 500 Custom and Biltwell Bonanza.

Based on my head circumference measurement, the recommended size in both is an XL. I have an XL in both helmets. While both fit, I have pressure points on the Bell. I don't have any pressure points on the Biltwell in the compatible size to the Bell. Biltwell does seem to favor a long oval fit. I have a narrower head shape, and have been very happy with the Biltwell fit. I hope this helps!

Kyle S: I have a Bell but its way too big for my head so I have no real comparison but dont go off the size chart it is way off, I have a 61 cm head and im in a large not a 2x like i think the size chart says. it even says inside the helmet that a large is 59-61 cm so i dont know how this chart got so messed up. If it presses on your head you can always use your thumbs and press down the liner a little bit to get a slightly better fit, thats what i had to do and mine fits great now. Aug 27, 2013

Nathaniel S: I found these helmets to run smaller than I thought. Maybe it's due to the unisex size. I was just under a 22 1/2 and wanted to make sure the helmet wasn't loose so I ordered a medium. I had to return it because it was giving me headaches. I ended up with a large and my buddies bought XL. I would go with a slightly larger size. Aug 26, 2013

Carlos Saul C: Its oval. I have a Bell which is round and rather uncomfortable and a Biltwell which is semi-oval and fits amazing.

Biltwells are a size up, I'm a Bell medium and a Biltwell large.

Neil W: The Bonanza fits true. Stick with the small. You'll want the helmet snug, not skull crushing tight.

Great choice of helmet. I've had mine two years and love it. Great quality and it looks the business, I previously ordered the Bell 500 but had to send it back. The stitching on the inside separated after the first time I wore it. Opted for the Bonanza instead.

Cheers
