Biltwell Bubble Shield
Performs as expected
I use the half grey/half clear shield. Great for bright days. The grey top part is just enough to dampen the brightness. As with all bubble shields, they tend to rattle during wind buffeting. I add a foam strip to both sides of the shield to secure it better. I use sticky-backed door jamb insulation. Just thick enough to add a little pressure without straining the shield snaps - don't want the shield to pop off. See picture.

Purchased the Biltwell bubble shield for my Biltwell Gringo helmet and it fitted perfect. The reflective chrome shield looks a little see through when you have it in your hand but once its on the helmet it is completely reflective and people can not see through.
Turns heads when people see you at the lights! Looks great.

Quick shipping, great product.
Unfortunately it is winter time here in Minnesota currently. I have not had the chance to ride with this shield. On the other hand I have driven at high speeds with my face hanging out the window as a control, next I combined this shield with the Gringo helmet, stuck my head out of the window and it performed flawlessly. No wind noise and very comfortable.
The next test was running at full speed. I am no Usain Bolt but I have a top speed of less than half of his. There was no wind buffeting and my field of view was amazing and with such clarity. With it being chilly/brisk that day, I did not see any fogging which was a relief. When I am running I tend to be a heavy mouth breather.
All and all I can't wait for the snow to melt and get out on the bike with this helmet and shield combination. It's comfortable and well made.

Looks awesome! Recommended over goggles
I love this bubble shield. I have a Gringo helmet and rode with goggles for awhile. Much easier to put on the shield and not have to worry about the extra piece. The shield also lets you have a full view from your helmet, where the goggles will block some of your view. I have the white Gringo and ordered the mirror finish and love the look. I will say that there is some fog when I first put on the helmet, but it dissipates quickly enough so it's not an issue.

It's a little tricky to assemble the first time, but when you put it on a few times it becomes really easy.

It's a great look, affordable, and durable but not aerodynamic.
The look of this shield is hard to beat in my opinion especially if you're going for a cafe racer style look. I've had this shield on 5 months and it's still doesn't have a scratch on it so it's durable and you're getting your money's worth. ONLY DRAW BACK is its not the most aerodynamic shield. When you turn to check a blindside the shield will lift and feel like it'll rip off. Irrational fear but it'll sketch you out when it first happens.... Bottom line it's totally worth it
