What's this?

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 classic 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 nylon neck strap features plated steel D-rings and a strap retainer with Biltwell anvil branding. The Biltwell Bubble Shield is also available, sold separately.

Features:

  • Expanded polystyrene inner shell
  • Meets DOT safety standards
  • Liner with contrasting diamond-stitched quilted open-cell foam padding
  • D-ring neck strap with adjustment strap end retainer
  • Rubber or chrome accent edging
  • Removable liner

if you are thinking Bell Custom 500 and not sure ... read this
Hello,
46 years old, bald (shaving head), oval/round shaped, and I have a big head since on most brands I need to try the XXL and sometimes XXL depending on the brand feels kind of too tight at the top circumference. I had in mind to buy the Bell Custom 500 because of the brand name and the look and knowing that they have been around for a long time. So I went to a motorcycle show and had the opportunity to try the Bell Custom 500 and when I did, it felt tight on the top circumference portion, and it felt like I had uncomfortable pressure squeezing from the left and the right, however from the back and the front was not bad and OK.
(depending on the shape of the head the person might have, Bell Custom 500 might be the perfect fit, but not for me at all)
Then I also read reviews regarding the Custom 500 that because of the material they are using most riders get to sweat more than normal inside the helmet and also I read where if you have a bald head, the stich pattern leave marks on the head after you take off the helmet for like 20 minutes and that also you get this purple color left on you head after you take off the helmet because of the sweet and because of that, possibly it is a good idea to put on a bandana first before you wear the helmet.
I mean are you kidding me?
So, I decided to give the Biltwell Bonanza a try and ordered it from Revzilla, I ordered the XXL and received and tried and it felt kind of too comfortable, so then I also purchased the XL and tried and it felt perfect pressure and still very comfortable. LMAO!!! So I decided to try the L as well, where at the end the XL was the perfect fit and returned the rest. This means it is very true with Biltwell Bonanza that no matter which size you were from other brands, the Bonanza always runs one size bigger, so in other words, buy one size smaller.
I have to say that I have never had a helmet fitting so perfectly and comfortable, it is perfect. Also now I do not have to worry about extra sweating and leaving a pattern on the bald head and leaving purplish color behind, and thank you to and kudos to Revzilla by having a fantastic customer service helping me with this helmet.
I hope this helps.

Don't Waste Your Time - Get this Helmet!!!
Was looking for a summer lid and have tried the Bell Bullitt as well as the old and new Bell Custom 500. No comparison in comfort or style. The Bullitt yanks your ears when you put it on, and is not usable for a glasses wearer like me. The older Bell Custom 500 is more comfortable that the new 2014 version, which feels like it has a ring of hard plastic inside it. The Bells have nice leathery bits, but are simply not comfortable. And the new Bell Custom does nothing to alleviate the "great gazoo" problem - you will look preposterous in both the old and new versions.

The Biltwell Bonanza is very cushy (on par with my Shoei Neotec), light and compact. No DOT helmet is thin enough, but the Biltwell is a lot better than the bell. Very easy to put on and take off without removing glasses, and no lift to speak of. Like all retro helmets, it would benefit from some venting but it is so open that it is quite comfortable on very hot days. Build quality is fantastic.

Last note to those of you who, like me, dread the bobble head effect - don't get a black helmet with black trim. Get a color. The chrome trim on the Biltwell further helps break up the helmet visually so it looks less ridiculous. I got root beer, which is basically rust colored sparkles under many layers of shiny clear coat. Looks great, but it is a bit loud and I have to get used to that LOL

Thanks Revzilla for great service to Canada - very happy with the experience.

Beauty is only skin deep
I purchased the gloss black model because it looks awesome and is designed for a rider with an intermediate oval head shape. When it arrived I was extremely disappointed with the construction quality. The silver and black trim that caps the lip of the helmet had separated in several paces. The glue that bonds the trim to the helmet had bled over the trim and cured leaving smeared glue stains in several places on the gloss finish. The rear center point at the base of the helmet where the two ends of the trim join was far from seamless. The gap between the two end points made it look like the trim had snapped under stress. There was also a dime size scuff on the back of the helmet. My first reaction was that the helmet looked like it had already been used. After doing some research with customer service, I found out that it was in fact a brand new helmet and one that wasn't returned and resold ... as a result I returned it immediately.

Great looking and fits my head!
I initially bought the AFX FX-76 helmet in medium and it was too small, my buddy has the large and it was too big. The large in this helmet fits like a glove (although it is heavier than the AFX helmet). The chin strap is easy to use without gloves and the bubble shield with this helmet is perfect. Great helmet especially at this price (I am new to riding so all i have to compare this to is a big Bell helmet I had).

Awesome Retro Styling
First let me start by saying the review of this helmet says its shape is neutral to immediate oval in shape. This is accurate and buy a size smaller like Revzilla recommends. Unfortunately i finally figured out my head shape and its long oval. All anybody needs to do to find your head shape beyond size is to simply look at an old baseball cap and the shape it formed to around your head. To get it to fit i had to form roll the EPS foam liner slightly in hot spots to get it to drop down on my melon.

The helmet itself is beautiful all the way around. I found the chin strap to be useable but a tad short in my opinion. Inner lining is comfy but there is no ventilation so yeah your going to sweat in this helmet more than a vented helmet.

I bought this as a happy medium to my 1/2 and FF helmets. When its warm i want to wear something at least and get the feel of not wearing. This helmet is so light you really don't notice it on your head and something i left out this being 3/4 alleviates the air blast to your ears you get when wearing a 1/2 helmet.

In ending Revzilla ships fast and they handle any issues you may have promptly.

Great Helmet
Bought this helmet for my girlfriend and she absolutely loves it. It fits her very well not to mention it looks great! I got her the rainbow mirror bubble shield to go along with the helmet. Would definitely recommend this helmet to anyone interested in a 3/4. I have a gringo helmet myself and I love biltwell they make some quality helmets!

Siiiiick helmet!!
This is a great helmet, i've worn it for a month now and absolutely love it! I read alot of reviews about the sizing, I was planning on getting a large and finally decided on a size med and it fits perfect, it fits slightly large so if you are on the fence for sizing, go down a size. The only complaint i have about the helmet is the colour, I ordered the colour rootbeer and it is pretty much red, kind of like a rust red rather than a brown colour that I was expecting. Other than this, it is a great helmet, super comfy and I get so many compliments!!

Great looking helmet. Very Comfortable.
So before I bought this helmet I tried the Bell 500. It did not fit my head at all. Had a really bad pressure point on my forehead. So I was a bit hesitant to buy this helmet. But all the good reviews persuaded me. The fit was very true to size and fit my head like a glove. The mini gold flake paint is just enough to make it pop. Very light weight. The liner comes out and I can see why. This helmet even though its an open face is very warm. So I can see I'll be washing the liner a couple times during the summer. As for the "mushroom head" look. Its what you expect with a DOT helmet, but they did a nice job tapering the helmet so it doesn't look as bad as others and it sits very low on your forehead. All and all very pleased

Vintage Style meets comfort and function
Bought this lid for hot weather riding in summer vs. my full face helmet. Flows a tremendous amount of air, so mission accomplished. This helmet does not have toggle vents, however, so be aware that your scalp won't get direct ventilation. The Biltwell, though, does have a removable liner, which is perfect for keeping things clean. The Bell equivalent does not have a removable liner. This helmet, after 30+ hrs of total use, seems like great value for the cost. It is stylish, comfortable, relatively light vs. other 3/4 helmets, and is built for function and form. I will be buying another one when this one wears out.

Cool Retro look, good price, and fits my big round head.

I always wanted a helmet like this since I was a kid. Bought a full face before cus it was winter. Now as it warms up it's time to ride with the face open!

Just like the look and want a little more protection than the 1/2 helmet I wear offers.

Wanted an old school throw back look. Picked a large, it was OK but should've gotten an XL.

fits better than bell custom 500
ALBERTO B on Mar 3, 2015
Have two of these helmets in various colors, love them! They fit me very well - much better than the Bell 500, which in some ways are better-built honestly. Getting this one for my wife (brite silver mf) as she doesn't like the colors I have right now (gang green mf & the rust color one).

I chose the green option because of the unique color

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.

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.

Form and function.

love the retro look! DOT certified, and from others" reviews on your site (plus video), the shape isn't as "gazoo-like". Cant wait to try it on.

I like the vintage look

Looking for a comfortable 3/4 helmet and all reviews said this is it
James on Jun 20, 2014
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.
Richard S on Jun 15, 2014
reading the reviews.. will wait to try it and see for myself!

Will a sena comm product fit to this helmet?
A shopper on Jul 27, 2015
BEST ANSWER: yes and no -- the cheek pads are removable but running the speaker wires through the top can get uncomfortable for your head over a period of time.

I have this helmet as well as the gringo and have used the sena smh10r on both. It looks like you're astronaut with the bubble shield on and there's *a lot* of wind noise the comes through the mic for obvious reasons.
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
A shopper on Sep 1, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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).
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.
Kristen L on Aug 23, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is this helmet oval or round?
A shopper on Dec 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Fitment for speakers and a mic? Was looking to get J&M kit with a 3/4 helmet
Edward Q on May 13, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have attached a Sena20 to mine, using earbuds has my "speakers", and one of the shorter mic booms that come with the Sena. I do not have much trouble "hearing", but have yet to use the mic. I also have a bubble shield attached to my helmet, which I am sure makes a different on wind noise.
does the shape of the helmet changes from bell 500 to bitwell and i dont know which one will be a better fit?
A shopper on Nov 28, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Hi. I'm a Large in the Gringo. Would I be a large in this too? I tried this on in XL and it was ENORMOUS, so I'm wondering if I should jump down to Medium.
Constantine K on Nov 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: If the next step up from Large is "Enormous," you should fit perfectly in a medium
What sort of "white" is the Vintage White?
Sandi on Mar 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It's a almost an egg she'll white. Not not beige at all but also not a bright white.
I'm a 21.8 inch, which is equal to a small on the chart. Should I get a small or go one size smaller to an extra small?
A shopper on Jun 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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
