Introducing the All-new Gringo SV
In 2014 we injected ‘70s motorsport DNA with advanced protective engineering to create Gringo, our first full-face helmet for motorcycles. Bikeriders rejoiced, and the retro/modern helmet revival was born. Several years later we added a polycarbonate shield to create Gringo S, then upgraded both models to meet ECE R22.05 standards. Today Gringo and Gringo S are two of the most recognized motorcycles helmets in the world.
Never willing to rest on our laurels, later in 2023 we’ll drop Gringo SV. Built to the same high standard as its predecessors, Gringo SV is spec ’ed to contend with helmets in a whole new class. Integrated vents on the helmet shell—not merely glued-on plastic appendages—are a Biltwell first, and give Gringo SV a racy, high-performance silhouette. Internal airflow passes over the rider’s head through channels in the EPS safety foam to dissipate heat and moisture buildup. Sliding mechanisms behind both brow vents let you block airflow in cold conditions. Gringo SV’s shield features our Gen-2 hinge hardware with robust detents, and a new locking mechanism similar to the brass pin on our Lane Splitter helmet. Of course, Gringo SV’s three-piece comfort liner is removable for cleaning and replacement.
A Whole New Standard, Now Standard
In another first, when it drops later this year our all-new Gringo SV will be the first Biltwell helmet to receive Europe’s new ECE R22.06 safety certification. These new test protocols address a much wider range of probable loads and impact angles, as well as a whole new, higher set of standards for shield testing—everything from light transmission to permeability during impact. Of course, Gringo SV remains compliant with all US DOT standards for peace of mind on US highways.
