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 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

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.

Perfect fit, looks great, exceptional value for money
Finding a helmet has not been easy, I initially leaned towards the Bell Bullitt and Custom 500. My head measures 21.5" and I ordered a small. But, nope - too tight. Returned it. Got a medium & still tight at the cheeks, but loose around the head. Gots to love Revzilla's return policy BTW, no hassles, I was refunded each time. Ordered a Gringo Spectrum Black and a Bonanza in small after reading reviews. Guess what, a fire @ local UPS hub and both burned (cannot make this stuff up)! Revzilla's amazing customer service sent me new ones immediately and gave me zilla cash for my pain and suffering LOL. Slipped these two helmets on as soon as I got then and man, I was in LOVE! Fit me perfect, great quality, lightweight and the retro look is on point. I am glad I went with Biltwell helmets, Time to buy some goggles and bubble shields for both these puppies! I also have a Bell Custom 500 open-face in medium I purchased elsewhere on closeout and cannot return (Grrrrr) and the Biltwell is definitely lighter. My wife has a Bell Custom 500 Airtrix in small and the Biltwell seems lighter than it as well. Anyways, long review, but I will be buying more Biltwells in the future, fasho!

Love this helmet!
Read a few reviews about it not fitting well. I have a very oval 7 and5/8 head and it fits awesome. Super comfortable. The look is just killer. If your into really well made helmets with the retro look this is for you. Highly recommended this helmet.

SO HAPPY
This helmet is awesome for what it is. Lightweight, comfortable, basic, and feels like it was made with care. I'm not going to wear it for long highway miles, but a few hours around town--it looks BOSS, and gets attention when I'm wearing it and when I'm carrying it. So happy to have a retro, sweet-looking full face. Any time I can combine safety and style, it's the nexus of awesome.

Best lid I've ever owned
I love this helmet! It's great in the wind and is the most comfortable helmet I've ever worn. High quality construction with the best materials. Plus it's looks sweet! The limited edition is the way to go. I rock it with a mirrored chrome bubble shield and get nothing but smiles, nods, and thumbs up. I definitely recommend this brain bucket. No frills just old school cool!

Old Skool style, yet up to DOT standards.
I got the Blue flake, looks baller! Fits great. It's comfortable and light. If you are going for old skool 70's style, this is it!.

Great Style, Comfort, Price
Great Helmet. Sweet vintage style. Simple design and high quality. Had a 3/4 style but wanted something with more protection. Bought a MEDIUM per revzilla's recommendation. I measured about a 22 3/8" Probably could have gone with a LARGE but I'd rather it fit snug than move around on my head. Figure it'll stretch out over time. Cheek padding is a little big. Waiting for Biltwell to come out with some more options with their blast shield before I buy one of them.

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.
Richard M on Jun 10, 2015
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.

ian p on Jul 27, 2014
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.

This is one of the few brands of helmets out there that respects the lines and color schemes of 70's motorcycles.

head 58cm?which one should i choose? M or L?
Lu Y on Jul 17, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I went with a large and I'm happy with the fit.
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

Is it weather proof?
With the bubble shield or blast shield will rain or splash get into the visor area?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2015
I wear a Small size in Bell and Arai, but this size chart recommends I order a Large. Are the really sized that big?
Austin T on Jun 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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!
How does this helmet work/fit for prescription eyeglass wearers?
A shopper on Apr 20, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Got a shoei rf 1100
In large was wondering what size to get this one??
A shopper on Aug 12, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
