Gringo S ECE Helmet - Gloss Black



Our ECE-certified Gringo S boasts fit, finish and safety technology identical to its full-face sibling, but features a CE-certified flip-up face shield for added safety and riding comfort.

Technical Details

  • Injection-molded ABS outer shell is rugged yet lightweight—the best combination of features for a motorcycle helmet
  • Three-piece Expanded Polystyrene (EPS) safety liner dissipates impact loads and fortifies helmet structure for a secure fit without compromising comfort
  • Molded urethane chin bar pad dissipates energy from frontal impacts
  • Removable/replaceable comfort liner and cheek pads feature brushed fleece Lycra touch points to absorb and evaporate perspiration
  • Chin strap features brushed fleece Lycra touch points for comfort and an adjustable strap end retainer
  • CE-certified polycarbonate shield includes anti-fog and anti-scratch treatments for safety and durability
  • Rugged shield hinge hardware with robust detents allows you to open the shield at slow speeds for increased airflow 
  • Molded recesses inside EPS designed to accept various aftermarket audio and communication components


    Helmet Fitment

    Please follow the instructions in our sizing chart before ordering a new helmet in the same size as your current model. ECE-certified helmets fit more snugly than similar US DOT-compliant models to meet Europe's stricter standards for impact attenuation. NOTE: We offer accessory cheek pads so you can fine-tune the tightness of your helmet around your jaw and face.

    Great Helmet

    Love the full-face helmet! It keeps me warm and toasty and it also looks cute for the road. Would recommend the Gringo S. Just wish it came with smaller cheek pads, or that you’d restock!

    Great retro look

    The finish on this helmet is superb. It’s like glass. The shield is super clear and distortion free. The cheek pads are quite thick, and I thought I was going to have to get thinner ones, but they’re starting to relax and I think I’ll just need the originals. The buckle-side strap is shorter than I’ve ever had, making it a little awkward to fasten the first couple of times, but it just takes getting used to. The snap that holds the strap down is reversed from any other helmet I’ve had, but that just takes some getting used to also. All in all, I’m very pleased with this helmet. I love the retro look, after all, I have a retro styled bike, and it compliments it well. This is the first helmet I’ve ever owned that I actually store in the bag! I haven’t done a back to back noise comparison with any of my other helmets, but I don’t think it’s much worse than any other, if at all.
