Biltwell Bubble Shield
Pretty cool for night riding
Excellent material , nice fit aerospacial look and the smoke grey seems to be awrsome

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

Does the job!
Snapped it on and love it. More coverage than the face shield.

Functional and stylish
This shield protects me effectively while getting me compliments from total strangers on my "'70s look." What else can you ask for?
I've had to get used to snapping it on without looking (that took some doing, but I managed to figure out how). Basically, you secure one of the end snaps, then the other end snap, then the center snap. The two end snaps slide horizontally in their channels, so there's a bit of play available in exactly how it fits onto the helmet.
I wear glasses; when putting on the helmet, if I secure only the left and right snaps (and not the center snap), I can flip the shield up slightly and put my glasses on, then secure the middle snap for security.
All 3 snaps need to be secured; if you ride at highway speed with only 2 of them secured, the wind may lift the shield off the helmet.

I expected much more from this Shield
After reading most all the reviews that were all good. But quite disappointed. 1st of all I had to pull over twice 1st time I rode with it. OMG the sounds from the wind on the highway if you ride over 55 was horrible. I thought something was hitting the helmet from my coat or sweatshirt or my hair. But finally figured out it was the Wind that comes down between the Helmt Shield and the Helmet from where the Snaps are. About a 1/2 inch gap and the winds bangs into your ears & I found it annoying as heck. If I put my hand up to that part I could block the wind & noise but who riding a motorcycle can keep your hands up to blcok the sound unless you want to die from not keeping your hands where they belong to steer the bike. DUH. & I can't get the dang thing off now without feeling like I am going to break it. Wish you guys would have said more about the NOISE problem. Or maybe it's just me?
