Product Details

Biltwell Lanesplitter Helmet

Straight from the mean streets of Temecula, CA Biltwell has developed a new contender for the tough-guy/girl helmet market. The Biltwell Lane Splitter channels that 1970's stig styling that has become so popular over the last couple years from riders like Rusty Butcher. Made from the same quality materials found in the Gringo helmets and Bonanza helmets, the Lane Splitter features a polycarbonate shell, hinged face shield, removable comfort liner and Biltwell's legendary color options. Don't let mundane helmets slow you down like traffic on the 405. Get the Lane Splitter and get going.

Crafted around Biltwell’s proprietary ABS outer shell and features a shock-absorbing EPS liner with hand-stitched interior padding, cheek pads and BioFoam chin bar cushion for comfort. Generous vents in the chin bar get the air flowing and the rear outlet lets hot air escape. The Lane Splitter shield boasts extremely accurate optics and simple hinge mechanics for high style and easy removal for replacement or cleaning. A brass peg and hole configuration on the left side of the shield offers speedy opening and secure closing with little fanfare or complication. Mesh pockets are included in the ear recess–perfect for most aftermarket drop in communication systems.

Features:

  • Meets ECE R22.05 and DOT safety standards
  • 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
  • Audio pockets in ear recesses
  • Chin curtain included
  • CNC laser cut polycarbonate eye port shield with the same aluminum hinge covers and mounting hardware as Gringo S helmets
Shape: Round Oval

Weight: 3.45 lbs.

Not bad for the price...
I was happy to get an ECE rated helmet at this price. There are a few drawbacks though. Although it is full face, the face part isn't against your face, there is an air gap. That gives the helmet a little bit of room to slide. Although it passed the roll off test from the back of the helmet, if I do it from the front, without any support on that part of the helmet, the face part moves enough to expose a good amount of my chin. It is still a lot more protection than 3/4 helmets but it could be better.

Alot of ppl mention that the front face vent doesn't close. That hasn't bothered me at all so far this winter, but I don't live in a place that gets that cold. The open vent just keeps my visor from getting fogged up.

The one thing that does bother me is how loud this helmet is. I swear my bike is louder when I put this on. Maybe it is just the way the helmet fits my noggin though.

No frills with nice style but a piss poor shield.
Bought this helmet as a Christmas gift for myself. Two months later (it's Feb 23rd) and the fog free coating is de-laminating from the inside of the shield. The styling is awesome and airflow is adequate...although you can expect to be sprayed with water through the non-closing face vents when riding in the rain. Noise level is adequate given the shape of the helmet and buffetting is nonexistent when traveling below highway/interstate cruising speeds. The interior is comfortable although basic. However the face shield has been a complete let down. If the stock shield can't last two full months with only intermittent winter riding, then how can I justify the additional expenditure for a nice tinted fog free shield? Seems like a set up for failure. I also own a shieldless Biltwell Gringo that completely kicks butt! Such a shame that Biltwell has allowed this helmet to be undone by a simple piece of plastic.

Summer Helmet
I live in Ny and after riding through the winter with this helmet I've learned it is a summer time helmet. It has good ventilation but THEY DO NO CLOSE. so if you ride through winters you will have to put face masks under your helmet. It does fog up. Looks great. Sena compatible. Face shield is easy to change and open and close mechanism has worked good for me. I've had it for about 4k miles so far. I think I have a long oval head. This is more like round oval.

Looks great, and thats about it... Otherwise awful helmet
There is no denying this is simply a bada$$ looking helmet, but that is about where the "pros" for my review end.

-The sizing is terrible... It will fit your crown perfectly, but be huge on your head (bobble head effect) and then the cheek padding will force you to chew on the insides of your cheeks if you want to try and close your mouth. (tried multiple sizes, tried compressing the pads as recommended as well).

-The visor opening tab... yeah have fun with that; it will (guaranteed) slide the helmet completely diagonal across your face any time you try to open your visor. Terrible design here; have seen this complaint in multiple other reviews and decided to look past it before buying (shame on me). Also, the visor fogs no matter what; and I've bought aftermarket visors for it too (don't go with gold, its not gold-- also in another review). Not sure how this even happens since the jaw sticks out so far and has decent ventilation.

-Road noise... not awful.

-Light-weight helmet

-Has decent enough airflow.

I called to return mine and ended up getting stuck with it (tried to pawn it to a friend, and he had the same issues... constant fogging/chewing on his cheeks), but Revzilla customer service was kind enough to help me out with another helmet.

Trust me, you only want this because it looks cool... but you will more than likely regret your purchase.

I want to like it, but it falls short
Man do I want to like this helmet. I feel it falls short of being a good helmet. At best, its a really good novelty helmet. I don't know why this helmet gets such good reviews. Biltwell as a brand is cool, but they have missed the mark on 2 of the 3 products I've bought of theirs, both times with build quality being the main issue.

The helmet shakes at speeds, visor rattles and the build quality is lacking. The shakes occur above 75mph, then the helmet starts buffeting around in the wind. At around 65mph the visor starts to rattle. I tightened the screws (very simple design) and that worked ok, but only until I lifted the visor up and down once or twice, then the screws were loose again. Then there is the build quality. I don't know why, but the hard foam liner has play and moves about 1/4" within the shell. Plus, opening the visor is a bit wonky, not a very smooth operation.

Airflow is lacking, but that should be expected due the design. There is no top vents, but the vents in front of the mouth does allow a bit of air in.

Looks are killer, price is ok, but it is not suitable for "spirited" riding. Therefore at this price point you can get a much better performing helmet than the Biltwell Lane Splitter. The visor lock needs to be upgraded to something more substantial than just a bolt, visor gasketing needs to be improved, the shape needs to be refined and redesigned for less buffeting, and increase the build quality so the helmet doesn't feel like it wants to come apart.

Excellent helmet with one small drawback
Love this helmet, from the looks to the comfort it is top notch. The one drawback that I have for it is that you can't control the airflow from the front vents. These vents let in a LOT of air. Or as we say in my neck of the woods, a WICKED LOT of air. Most of the time it's a good thing and I prefer it that way when it's really hot out, but once in a while it just feels like too much. Size wise I dance between XL and XXL for my helmets. It was a tad tight when I first got it but now that it's broken in a bit it fits great. I really like the simplicity of this helmet and how it's made, if it just had an airflow adjustment I'd definitely give it five stars.

Looks cool but is garbage
Helmet is very bare bones. has a cool look but the shield hardware and latch systems are junk. The screws that hold the shield on rattled loose and fell out. Helmet is so loud that I have to wear earplugs with it. I tried adding a sena smh10r but the helmet is so loud you can't hear the music even at full volume. I thought I had a bad sena, got another and its the same.. There are so many better helmets at this price point. Its cool if you just wanna run around town, but is terrible at high speeds or on long runs. Also its not waterproof at all. The shield doesn't really seal to the helmet so rain gets on the inside of the shield giving you a double layer of rain drops to try to see through. Rainx can't help you there. None of the air vents can close either so a strong rain will get your head and face wet.
