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

Note: The Bubble Shield and Goggles are sold separately.

UN-FREAKING-BELIEVABLE!!!!
I've always stared at this helmet from afar until finally, it arrived in the mail. The package itself smelled like a sweet roman victory on the shores of Greece. Once opened, 3 beautiful white doves flew out and gently kissed my cheeks before flying off. I lifted the Vintage White Gringo into the air as trumpet sounded from the hillsides. All was right with the world as I put the armor upon my head. I saw the world in a different light. It was as if I could hear every woman's thought about my new manliness and how it intimidated them to the point of wanting me then and there! Thank you Revzilla. Thank you Biltwell. My future children shall be named after you.

Saved My Scalp
I am a military Vet who suffered head injuries from blasts in Iraq and Afghanistan. Even though I live in Indiana where a helmet is not required, I wear one as good blow to the head could leave me in a bad way. Last Friday I went down at 35 mphs on some gravel. slid a good distance on my head. The Gringo took some deep gouges, but I felt no blow, nor pain. Grateful for the protection it afforded me and glad it was so comfortable that I didn't think twice about wearing it.

Best-looking helmet I've ever owned
I've never gotten so many compliments on a helmet as I do with this one. I'm very happy with it overall.

The padding is basic, so there's a lot of airflow in through the chin area; that's good if you're in a hot climate, not so good in an icy winter. The chin bar also fits fairly loosely (there's a gap between my chin and the chin bar), so (unlike with other full-face helmets) if I should impact the ground chin-first, I'm not sure it would protect me well; it seems possible that my chin itself might hit the ground along with the helmet.

As a result, I probably wouldn't use it for long-distance or super high-risk riding. But for routine city commuting at moderate speeds, which is what I do, it's perfect.

It seems to fit slightly looser than other helmets. For example, in HJC helmets, an XL is very, very tight on my cheeks; in this helmet I'm a loose XL.

Note: If you're used to flip-up visors, you'll have to accustom yourself to a snap-on shield, which is always either "on" or "off" the helmet (no popping it open on the road, then popping it back closed).

Classic look, but watch out for sizing
The sizing is a big issue for me. I followed the sizing chart provided by Biltwell, and gotten a size XL for 58cm heads. Turns out, the XL helmet was slightly too big for me and had to purchase another size L because shipping the helmet back to Singapore was ridiculous. The sizing tag in the XL helmet explicitly stated "61-62cm" so I am not sure what's up with Biltwell. Customer service rep from Revzilla told me that the tag inside the helmet represents the shell size or something along that line. Doesn't really make sense to me but I'm happy that the size L fits me perfect. Tag inside the helmet states "59-60cm". If you can, try on the helmets before buying to avoid such confusion. Some research showed that I wasn't the only one with such issues.

Sizing issues aside, the helmet itself looks really solid and well built, with good attention to details. Hardware details and the quilted interior are quite stylish imo. The price paid for the helmet is also quite reasonable to me.

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.

Great helmet, almost like wearing an open face, got it painted
I couldn't bite the bullet and buy an open face helmet, but this came along, and more than makes up for it. Great wind in the face feel with a pair of sunglasses.

I also got it painted at a local airbrush artist. Think it looks pretty good.

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.

Awesome style with an awesome price!
I really like the look of this helmet. The matte titanium color is sick! It's very comfortable as well. I'm a smaller guy, 5'6" and 145lbs, and most full face helmets just look large on me. The "shell" of this helmet appears to be a lot smaller, in my opinion, and therefore does not look huge when I'm wearing it, which I really like. Great product, great price and great service!

Unequalled in my experience.
First off, Revzilla had this thing boxed and shipped within hours of my purchase.Boom.
I received a text "your package awaits upon your doorstep"
No! not on lawn day! I rode home from work wearing my Biltwell novelty.I'm in Tampa ,the heat index is 102 degrees. The novelty is obviously as cool a helmet as you're going to get for such weather , I thought.
I opened my Gringo put it on and fell in love. So many good things can be said about this helmet. First , in the house , it looks as old school scooterpimp as you can get. I measured at 22" and waited a long time for the medium to be available. Fits perfect. The chin bar makes the bobble head effect (that thin faced guys get even with novelty open faces ) disappear right away. Now , to ride with it. What!? Are you kidding? This is cooler than my novelty 3/4 with the wind blowing , yet still quieter. Don't know how, don't really care. Doesn't buffet or lift. Just love it. I guess I will just have to start drinking my "road beers " through a straw.

Is there a cooler looking full face helmet on the market? I also have a pretty big head and have trouble finding helmets to fit that don't give me a massive headache. The reviews say that it should meet my requirements and still look the goods. Really excited for this helmet to turn up. I've wanted one since they were first released.

I lost my previous two Biltwell Bonanza helmets in freak accidents. They must be cursed. Hopefully the Gringo will bring better luck.

I got it for the simple, classic design. I got the Hazard Orange color and being a new rider I feel a little more confidant in terms of being visible.

Simple, classic design, great value for money, a nice fit, and many, many positive reviews from others. :)

This helmet has had amazing reviews everywhere I've looked. Thought I'd give it a go as my friends are getting on my case about getting a full face helmet. Excited to give it a go!

Best helmet of all time, I have two!

Girlfriend wanted a new helmet and I already had the Gringo S and love it.

I like the old school look and this has a very utilitarian shape to it. no nonsese, no vents, just a simple face/head cover.

I saw this helmet in a store and was draw to it like a bug in headlights. I can't wait to have it on

So there are two shells, one for XS S and M, and one for the larger sizes. Do we know how much bigger the larger one is? Is it a visible difference?

Also seeing reviews saying to buy one size smaller, and one size bigger. Would love a definitive answer on this. My head on the tape measure is just under 23" right now, but I have a full head of hair and would be willing to shave it all off. Not sure if people do that and notice a difference in fit.

BEST ANSWER: I always need a large, the large fits me fine, a little tight in the cheek pads. This helmet fits rounder heads (front to back) than oval heads.
The description on the site says get one size smaller, but in your YouTube video comments, you (CK) recommended to get one size bigger. I wear size M in Shoei (RF-1100) and it fits my extremely well. Which size should I go for here?
Talha S on Mar 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I am not sure about Shoei sizing, but I have a Med HJC and a Med Licks Nov Dot and some others. The HJC fits me spot on and the Nov Dot did when I first bought it, but after 1 year it stretched out. The Gringo seems a bit like the Nov Dot. I bought a Med and have a feeling it's going to be too big next year. I think a bandanna would work to keep it snug as it stretches out, though.
So I know that the size chart is provided by the manufacturer and they always seem to be off.
I'm measuring for a medium but 1 size smaller is what is suggested by Revzilla...
Some users seem to have commented to go 1 size larger though. Any thoughts on what to get here? I live in Australia so would like to avoid having to send the item back to swap.

BEST ANSWER: I wear an XL in both the Gringo and the Bell Custom 500, so... The Gringo is a tad bit bigger than I would like but stepping down to a size Large would be too small. So I guess if you wear a medium in other helmets and that feels a tad big then go with a Small. But if a Medium is kinda snug on other helmets then go with the Medium for the Gringo. Hope this helps.
Hi, can anyone suggest any retro look kind of goggle that suitable with gringo?
A shopper on Sep 22, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I think vintage aviator style goggles would be something to look at. I've seen em on several sites from relatively cheap to super sturdy/expensive. The look would totally depend on you the rider though.
I got this helmet and I love it! My head measures 21" and I got the small. It fits in the crown comfortably but loose on my cheeks/chin. Will the top 'break in'? Should I got down a size and get the XS? This is my first helmet so i dont know how tight it needs to be. Thanks.
Meredith P on Sep 19, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Meredith,
You shouldn't be able to turn the helmet while it's on your head. I've had a Gringo for a few months now and I haven't noticed much "break-in". To me it sounds like your helmet is a little big for you and you may want to go down a size. All helmets should have a snug fit, but not be so tight that you have to cram it on. Make sure your chin strap is tight as well, and keep in mind the gringo chin bar should cover your mouth as intended. Hope this helps.

Hey - I have a Bell Custom 500 in size small and it fits me perfectly. Should I expect that a small would be the size to go for in a Gringo?
A shopper on Aug 26, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have a Bell Custom 500 and a Biltwell Gringo, and they are the same size (both large). As others have mentioned, the Biltwell is a little tighter around the cheeks, but I expected that going to a full-face helmet.
Hi, guys!

Just bought my first bike, and I'm looking for a full size - open face type helmet.

I like this one, but I have an issue. Does anyone know if I can fit basic eyeglasses while wearing this helmet? I wear not so dorky Buddy Holly type classes.

Thanks!
Javier G on Nov 8, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I wear glasses of a similar and I just bought this helmet. If you're going to wear a shield, it gets tricky. I have to remove my glasses, put the helmet on, put my glasses back on, and then snap the blast shield in place. But I have to do this with just about any helmet I wear, so it's not much of an issue for me. However, if you have a bubble shield, I find that they are harder to snap into place with the helmet already on.
Does the Matte Titanium color lean toward silver or gold? Thanks.
A shopper on May 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Silver.. I Put a smoke mirror on it and it looks like an astronaut helmet. Lots of compliments..
I have 3 questions. 1: Is the white more of a cream? I have a cream vespa and was wondering if it would look good. the stock photo looks more cream but the video looks more white. 2: how accurate is the size chart? does it run small or big? 3: does it cover your chin? In the video it looks like it doesnt cover his chin very well but I am a girl and have a smaller face.
A shopper on Oct 15, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 1. To answer your question the white does have a slight tint to it. But it's not quite cream colored, and when in the sun it's pretty bright white due to reflection. 2. The size chart is accurate, but take in to account after wearing the helmet for a bit the pads tend to wear down slightly. I measured 22 3/4 which is the cusp of an xlarge but I bought a large and it fits perfectly and the cheek pads are snug at first but begin to loosen. 3. Mine covers my chin. But that really just determines how your head build is. The video, the guy wears his pretty high. I tend to pull my helmet down and forward and it fits right at mid forehead and covers my chin just fine. Hope this helps!
Hi will a Bell Custom 500 Retro 3 Snap Shield (flat not bubble) fit this helmet or will this only work with a bubble shield?
A shopper on Aug 21, 2013
BEST ANSWER: The Bell 500 3 snap shield won't fit a gringo. Tried it...
