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.

Biltwell Bonanza Helmet 4.7 5 41 41
LOVE THIS HELMET Hey some of my friends think I am a geek to have boughten this helmet after they have seen me wear German Style for 10 years. I wanted something different & retro looking & was NOT disappointed at all after getting this helmet! Love the color I chose, which was the Maroon one. It's not heavy, keeps my hair from knotting and ears & neck warm. I can't say even good about it. To each his own style I say.... November 11, 2014
Love this helmet Finally found a DOT helmet that fits and feels good. Much better for me than the Bell Custom 500. Did not want a bunch of expensive features. I put a 3 snap bubble face shield on it to make it perfect. I've had 5 other helmets in the past 3 years. This one is a keeper. The others are on eBay. October 29, 2014
Great no-air duct DOT approved 3/4 helmet It was either the Bonanza or the Bell Custom 500. I chose Bonanza cause it was much more comfy and its shape looked better on my head. Make sure to get it one size smaller as everyone (incl. RevZilla) recommends. Overall, great value for an entry level DOT helmet. October 27, 2014
Terrific value in an open face helmet I bought the Biltwell Bonanza helmet to accompany my "rocker" gear (leather jacket, motorway boots, sea socks, jeans and goggles) for a British bike rally. Despite its relatively low price, this lightweight helmet offers excellent build quality, good fit and comfort (IF you order a size smaller than normal) and DOT approved safety features otherwise found in helmets costing -- literally -- four times as much. I still use my high end full face brain bucket for high speed riding and long trips but for country lane pottering and "looking the part" on your vintage Triumph, Norton or BSA, the Biltwell skid lid is just the ticket.

This product was everything I was hoping for! Great fit and very comfortable! Very satisfied with the Biltwell Bonanza! I get lots of compliments! October 13, 2014
Great Product The Bitwell Bonanza is a great product for the price. Stylish and overall a great product! September 8, 2014
Lightweight and comfortable Very happy withy biltwell cafe style helmet...I researched at nauseum and ended up making the right decision. September 1, 2014
Comfort and Style Great helmet. Lightweight with classic, clean lines. Super comfortable and plush liner. Love the chin strap snap so you're not getting slapped in the face by it's flapping. Didn't feel much, if any, lifting with higher speed riding. Trust Revzilla's 'one size smaller' advice: I measured at the top of the sizing charts "medium," ordered a "small," and the fit was perfect! Highly recommend not only this helmet, but purchasing it with Revzilla. Customer service is outstanding. September 1, 2014

Renee K: Xmas gift for my son Nov 20, 2014
Eric H: I chose the green option because of the unique color Oct 27, 2014
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
F E: quality, elegance and style Aug 4, 2014
Brad D: Form and function. Jul 25, 2014

Richard S: I recently purchased the Biltwell Gringo helmet and I like it so much and it fits so well I decided to pitch the very uncomfortable HJC open face I wear on occasion and replace it with the Bonanza. I purchased the vintage white for those very hot summer days when I'm just riding around town. Jun 15, 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
Jared H: Seems to be the only classic open face helmet designed for intermediate oval head shapes. Sep 2, 2013
Neil W: The Bell Custom 500 didn't fit and the stitching on the inside of the helmet came undone. Aug 14, 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.

genevieve b: The fit is very similar between both and for myself i found the shape of the biltwell less bubble head, by the way bell will come out with a new 500 in march with a better shape, less round. Hope this help you. Nov 29, 2013
