Biltwell Gringo Helmet - Solid

When it comes to retro or vintage bikes it is always important to have your gear match the vibe of your ride and for many years that meant wearing either an open face helmet or putting on a crusty old Bell Star or Buco Allsport if you wanted a fullface helmet that looked the part. Well, thanks to the wonderful folks over at Biltwell, the Gringo is here to wrap your head in a combination of old school style and modern safety.

The DOT certified Gringo helmet is built to suit the needs of contemporary riders, with a beautifully crafted diamond stitched removable liner, an eyeport that accepts pretty much any type of goggle you could want to wear, as well as 5 snaps that work with any universal 3-snap shield, Biltwell’s own Bubble shield or their 5-snap Blast shield. So next time you hop on your chop or throw a leg over your bike leave that vintage helmet on the shelf where it belongs and grab a Gringo.

Features:

  • Injection-molded ABS outer shell with hand-painted finish
  • Expanded polystyrene inner shell
  • Hand-sewn removable brushed Lycra liner with contrasting diamond-stitched quilted open-cell foam padding
  • Internal BioFoam chin pad with hand-sewn contrast stitching
  • Rugged plated steel D-ring neck strap with adjustment strap end retainer
  • Rubber or chrome accent edging on shell and eye port
  • DOT Approved
  • Bubble Shield and Goggles sold separately

Note: The Gloss Black helmet could come with Chrome or Black trim.

Biltwell Gringo Helmet 4.7 5 259 259
Form over function Look, this is a great looking helmet. You will look cool in this helmet, whether with sunglasses, goggles, or the bubble shield. You will get lots of compliments on this helmet and that will make you feel good. There’s no denying the aesthetic value of this helmet. Brad Pitt and David Beckham have similar looking helmets. That said, this is a bad helmet for anything but riding around town. Touring in this helmet is miserable. The bubble shield turns the helmet into a sail if you turn your head or get hit with a crosswind. I road through a small Oklahoma storm and a couple times felt like I was going to get pulled off the bike by my head. The helmet is loud. You will need earplugs for long trips. Without the bubble shield on the helmet lifts at highway speeds. I bought a helmet that corresponded with my hat size and it feels a little loose. But man, it looks so cool. August 22, 2016
Biltwell Brilliance I bought this helmet based on the glowing reviews it receives from most people here on Revzilla and other sites. Having tried on many of the "low-profile" open faced helmets, and coming away disappointed with the look of these helmets, I decided to stick with a full face helmet for riding my cruiser. The Gringo is a remarkably quiet helmet, I have virtually no wind noise with this helmet, just the sound of the engine and exhaust note. As a side note my bike does have a windshield, but I still get some wind noise even with my Shoei Qwest. The eye port is very wide and slipping on sunglasses is no problem at all. While it is a simple design, the quality of construction, paint and interior of this helmet is top notch -- far above it's price point. It is also has a smaller profile than my other two full face helmets. It really is a comfortable and good looking helmet at an unbeatable price. August 2, 2016
worth it reasonable price no frills get on it. Classic style August 2, 2016
BEST HELMET I tried on almost 50 types of helmets. everything hurt or was uncomfortable. I couldn't ride for more than 45 min without having to stop and take a breather from the helmets that squished my head or were too hot. This helmet is the perfect shape. Allows the perfect amount of air in. Not too noisy like I thought it would be - I'm using the bubble windshield so I'm sure that helps. TOTALLY cool looking! I hardly even feel it on and I can focus on my ride instead of my head. Oh, and the vision is pretty wide so I don't miss much. Only bad thing I can say is that with the windshield, my riding partner can't hear me even if I'm screaming at her something. So, I'm considering attaching a headset piece. I hope that doesn't affect the look. July 26, 2016
click to door 48 hours... to canada Ordered it on a Wednesday afternoon and was squishing bugs with it by Friday night. Very impressed with the turn around and the product was bang on as advertised. Super light, good air flow a great look. Thanks. August 22, 2016
Nice Helmet I was sized as a medium (I'm a female) and bought the medium size white helmet. It fit snugly (actually a little too tight on the forehead) and felt secure. The chin strap was a bit too long, but it could still be secured. I like the look of the helmet and got okay breeze through the front (with no visor) and just sunglasses on. June 29, 2016
Great helmet I have a big head and most DOT helmets tend to make me look like a bobble head doll. The Biltwell Gringo doesn't. It's a no frills helmet that looks like a novelty but is safety rated. The view is exceptional and you can really feel the wind as if you were wearing a half helmet. Sometimes I travel to visit family and ride with them. I have one of these helmets both at my home and where I travel to. August 2, 2016
GREAT helmet if you've got a round head. Really good if you don't. I love this helmet. Great looking, light weight and comfortable. The videos and reviews are accurate about the fit. I've got a longer oval shaped head and while this helmet is comfortable to wear for several hours, when I take it off my forehead looks a lot like Peyton Manning's when he takes his helmet off. If my head were a different shape, this helmet would be absolutely perfect. Buy it, seriously. June 14, 2016
