Biltwell | Gringo Helmet

The Gringo is Biltwell’s first foray in the full-face market. The look of the helmet harks back to a time before CAD-designed vents and scoops, Superbike rainbow graphics, and fog-proof Pinlock visors, but don’t think for one minute that this brain bucket isn’t packed with technology. This DOT-approved helmet is constructed with an injection-molded ABS outer shell, a shock-absorbing EPS inner shell, and a hand-stitched liner with open-cell foam and comfy Lycra construction. Being an equal opportunity company, Biltwell has sizes XS through XXL in a myriad of colors so anyone can rock the Gringo with nary an issue. I took a several-hundred-mile ride with the Gringo and I really found the fit to be good with the aid of a secure D-ring–fastened chinstrap and good head geometry for our roundish-shaped Anglo-American heads. I loved the no-nonsense style and classic good looks of this helmet, which is more on point with what a chopper guy wants in a full face with not a lot of BS. Sure, there are no vents on this lid, but I found the helmet to be cooler than most of this ilk due to the high-tech helmet lining. Besides, nobody said looking cool was ever actually cool.
