Biltwell Gringo Spectrum LE Helmet

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 Laverda 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

Can't go wrong. What can I say? this helmet rocks. I did get into a wreck with my regular gringo, and went face first into the concrete after getting ejected off my bike, and it saved my life. So yea, I bought a Spectrum because well, they work, and they look awesome. August 10, 2015
Very comfortable I have had 5 helmets since I started riding in 2002. This is the best fitting and most comfortable I ever had. More comfortable than the Bell helmets that would give me a headache after about an hour of wearing it. August 27, 2015
Wicked helmet! Bold and old school! I am from Australia, and bought the Friday night, and recieved on Tuesday morning! Biltwell gringo titanium matte Great looking helmet and good fit in comparison to my bell openface helmet, I bought a large. Also paired it with the biltwell goggles! August 24, 2015
Solid helmet - timeless look and comfortable This product was reasonably priced and is very comfortable to wear. I have ridden with it a few times so far and have no complaints - it doesnt muffle surrounding ambient noise too much, which i found helpful. Visibility is very good (I do not have a shield attached to mine at the moment. The spectrum color scheme gives it a cool retro look that also happens to match the color of my faithful steed August 24, 2015
product fit true to measurement First street helmet I bought to take a safety course. Wore the helmet for about 8hr/day for 2 days. No pressure points or sore spots after the two days. So far so good August 24, 2015
Favorite helmet! I was looking for a helmet that would allow me to use the intercom and be comfortable. This was an awesome choice. I got the XL in cream/white, it is gorgeous and fits great. I usually wear a L so be sure to check the sizing. Wind noise at 70 on highway is very low and I can hear my music and talk to the hubs on his bike with no issues. August 22, 2015
No frills Absolutely plain and featureless helmet with super cool retro styling at a great price. I love it. The helmet is comfy on my head, I don't use a shield, i just wear it with either shades or the biltwell goggles so the massive gist of air rushing in the front keeps me cool, albeit in a kinda noisy way I guess. I knew going in what I was getting and couldn't be happier, It also suits the style of my bike. August 17, 2015
Always get compliments. The biltwell gringo is awesome. Anyone I ask that rides with one absolutely loves it. I rock the hazard orange with a reflective chrome bubble shield as part of my daily commute gear and I constantly get compliments on it. My brother, his girlfriend, and myself all ride this helmet, and for a few reasons. It's got style for days, we all rode up to a gas station one day on our sportsters and a guy peeked over the top of a gas pump in his truck and said "Did you guys just roll in from the seventies?" Very comfortable. The liner is cushy and the shape fits us perfectly. The padding in the cheeks really makes the helmet feel secure, like a nice hug for your face. I've been riding mine everyday for the last 8 months on a lot of incredibly hot days and it still doesn't stink yet. Access to a lot of customizing options. I have a pair of fox main goggles, some aviator goggles, a sun visor, sunglasses, 7 bubble shields. You can even modify your own stuff, like by putting 2 way snaps on one of the shields, then attacking a visor to your favorite shield, pretty cool. There are some off-brand flip up bubble shields too which are nice. DOT standards are very good, I trust that this helmet will save me if I need it to. I only wear full face helmets, this helmet does not restrict my vision at all, and the bubble shields do not distort. With a bubble shield, it blocks a lot of air from moving through the helmet, but not all, if you ever need to get some air in there, you simply move your head a few degrees to one side while riding and you'll get a nice quick rush of air through the helmet. I can't say anything for road noise as I always wear earplugs when I ride over 40 mph to remove high frequency wind noise and protect my hearing. At lower speed rides I pull them out and I can hear almost as well as if I didn't have a helmet on. Which is perfect for me. I like my gringo so much that I'm going to buy another one, just to have a different color. You will hear lots of astronaut references and jokes with the chrome shield on. August 15, 2015

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Kristopher P: Style, reviews Aug 19, 2015
Richard M: For use with my Harley Davidson Sporty, I have open face helmets but this allows me to feel more secure when riding on the highway and it has a great retro cool look. Jun 10, 2015
Kenneth W: Bought the Biltwell Gringo in flat black and loved it. I live inIndiana and not required by law to wear a helmet, but I am a Vet with TBI and Post concussion syndrome, so I know one is required for me to safely ride. Jun 8, 2015
D A: beautiful, comfortable, stylish! Dec 1, 2014
Benjamin L: Because it is an awesome helmet. Sep 29, 2014
Krister E: Best affordable vintage helmet I could find! Sep 16, 2014
ian p: Cause it's awesome!! Jul 27, 2014
jason p: The more expensive (and swankier) Bell Bullitt, in XXL, was far too narrow for my head. Wanted a retro styled helmut, for city cruising and this was my last option. The cheaper price point also allowed me to get a sport/touring helmet for longer distance riding. Jun 28, 2014
bryan g: This is one of the few brands of helmets out there that respects the lines and color schemes of 70's motorcycles. May 3, 2014

Austin T asked: I wear a Small size in Bell and Arai, but this size chart recommends I order a Large. Are the really sized that big? Jun 7, 2014

Wade B: I wear a large in most helmets. According to the Biltwell sizing chart I "should" wear their size XL. Revzilla recommends that you get the next size down. For me this translates to: I wear a large in most helmets, I also wear a large in the Gringo. And on a side note, I love this helmet! Best lid I have ever owned! Jun 10, 2014

Diogo D: Hi, I use in all brands of helmets the same size, Large...so I guess that the Gringo that you want you can use the same size that you use on Bell and Arai Jun 10, 2014

A shopper asked: How does this helmet work/fit for prescription eyeglass wearers? Apr 20, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Wade B: I ride with no shield and a pair of sunglasses. It fits perfectly! Plenty of room in the temples. Occasionally I snap on my mirrored chrome bubble shield and ride, but then I don't have the glasses. If you have the bubble shield or the blast shield you will have to put on the helmet, then your glasses, and then the shield. And do that all in reverse to take it off. You can't put on the helmet with your glasses on. Other than that this is my all time favorite helmet. Apr 20, 2014
Reply to Wade Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
William O: The helmet works well with eyeglasses or sunglasses. You will have to put your glasses on after you put the helmet on. This might only be an issue if you plan on using a visor as well. I suppose you could first put the helmet on and then glasses and then the visor. Apr 20, 2014

A shopper asked: Got a shoei rf 1100
In large was wondering what size to get this one??
Aug 12, 2015

Mike C: I would recommend a size L for the Gringo also. According to the Shoei size chart your head measurement should be about 23 1/4"-23 5/8". My Gringo fit just like the RevZilla size chart said it would. Aug 12, 2015

A shopper asked: Is it weather proof?
With the bubble shield or blast shield will rain or splash get into the visor area?

A shopper asked: Concerned about how Gringo fits on the head. I wear an Arai RX-7 full face in Medium which fits me best. A Scorpion EXO 700 in medium causes forehead pressure discomfort. Hat size 7 1/4. Is a Large going to fit?
Thanks,
Garagenut
