This has got to be the coolest, comfiest helmet ever! I ride a cool bike but I'm sure they deek at my helmet first! Well done biltwell, had mine for 3 years now and still love it more than ever and might just buy another colour for the hell of it. I've even got it on display when I'm not riding.

I am ordering another one of these helmets soon because my other one is no longer DOT approved. This helmet saved my life which is worth more than I spent on this helmet. It is worth more to me and my family than any of my bikes combined! I have always been pro-helmet but now I am pro-biltwell helmet. When I bought this helmet, I looked at different styles, companies, features but ultimately purchased this one last Summer. On February 19, 2018, this helmet proved I made the best purchase. Because of this company, this helmet and the wonderful staff at the hospital, I will be able to ride again. Many thanks to many more miles!

Great helmet. Better than I expected, and a great price for what I got. Definitely exceeded expectations, and I got stickers... I like stickers.

Bought this helmet used off of ebay. The dude before scuffed it all up so it looks worn and badass... That's what I happen to be into because I'm a douche with a cb750 rat bike. But the look, feel and security in this thing are unparalleled, Highly recommend this helmet to anyone.

This is my second Gringo helmet and I alternate wearing both of my Gringo helmets almost everyday. If you are not wearing this wonderful lid, then you just don't get it!

I'm currently in the hospital after a truck turned in front of me on my Triumph Rocket III. After rolling/sliding 200ish feet my 900lbs bike came to a rest on my head. I only have a broken leg and not a squished grape. I'll be buying the gringo again.

The most comfortable helmet I've owned, and the quality is excellent! Was worried about the weight with a full face, but the Gringo feels lighter than the very thick half helmet it replaced.

I am so f@!*#n' stoked about this helmet and have so many good things to say about it. It's ridiculously comfortable and just a piece of art. I held off getting this helmet because I had never seen one in person but I finally got one and wish I had done it sooner. If you are even questioning getting this helmet, just get it. If you are currently wearing an open face and have doubts about a full face, this helmet is the perfect solution. The Gringo is way more comfortable than my Bell Custom 500 and I don't feel like my vision is blocked like with other full face helmets. Get a bubble shield to go with it too, I have the tinted one and the yellow one as well.

This helmet oozes with retro styling, care and quality. After being introduced to the Biltwell branding and owning the Bonanza (Biltwells 3/4 helmet) for a couple of years, I decided it was time to go back to a full face helmet for safety's sake. Heaven forbid I get into a wreck and I smash my face out... These helmets are high quality and backed by a reputable company. I saw some equivalent helmets by one of the top name brands in the helmet industry and they wanted over twice the price for the same DOT rated and styled helmet, which were much heavier and more uncomfortable I might add. I purchased the Gringo in matte black to go with my denim HD Street Bob. Out of the ten-plus helmets I've owned, the Gringo is one of my favorites as well as the Biltwell brand name. I often ride without a visor and this helmet is perfect for that around town with a pair of sunglass or safety glasses. When I hit the interstate I just snap on the Bubble shield, which look great with Biltwell's respective/compatible helmets (Gringo and Bonanza). I'll be considering other parts and accessories this company offers for my ride in the near future. If you're undecided, I'd recommend you go ahead and try the Gringo out. I doubt you'll regret it.

Best Helmet I own. Feels sturdy and lightweight. I was in an accident 2 weeks ago, and I can honestly say this helmet saved my melon. Still recovering from bruises and road rash, but my head is fully in tact. Thanks Biltwell!

Love my Gringo! This Helmet is awesome, quality, performance, fit and finish, everything is awesome, rode it all of SoCals summer, and it was perfectly fine. It can get hot if you're just sitting, but who does that?! It's super versatile with the different shields, goggles or simple sunglasses like i do. extremely lightweight and great slim profile, buying a second one soon to have a different color.

I just received my Gringo in the mail. After reading all the reviews online I was so excited to get, and it surpassed all my expectations (and they were already high). It feels and looks great, and it's even better on the road. Its very quiet (I can actually hear my bike!), lightweight, comfortable, with a large viewing area. It fits snug but not tight with no vibration from the wind - even at 130km/h. Better than my full face Shoei and Bell helmets. Let me tell you, it looks amazing with my '82 CB900. Thank you Biltwell!

Without doubt the nicest fitting and most comfortable helmet, not only was I able to get it delivered in 2 days I rode 3000 miles in 90 plus degree weather for 8 days and not once did I feel to hot or uncomfortable !! I normally wear a Bell 3/4 not any more , felt safer and it looks a bunch cooler.. add the bubble shield and its very cool . I did go for the XL normally in Bell i wear large, the XL fits perfect . Great helmet and great customer service .

This helmet saved my life. http://www.abc15.com/news/region-phoenix-metro/central-phoenix/pd-motorcyclist-critically-hurt-in-accident I was in a collision on March 14th, 2014. I just spent nearly a month in the hospital recovering from numerous injuries. My bike T-boned a car at between 40 and 50 mph. The PHX PD detective investigating the accident thought for sure that it would be fatal. I'm wholeheartedly convinced that my life was spared simply because I was wearing this Biltwell Gringo helmet fitted with the Biltwell Bubble Shield. Please, always wear a full face helmet. Its not just a matter of life and death. Its a matter of surviving with brain damage or without. Ride Safe, Steve M Tempe, AZ

The wife has been nagging me for years to wear a full-face helmet. Intellectually I've always agreed with her that I should, but I just don't care for the way they look, and the fact that I feel claustrophobic in them doesn't help.

Then in a search for a new 3/4 helmet to replace my worn out Bell 500, I stumbled across the Gringo. It seemed to be the best of all worlds. I rolled the dice and ordered one.

I can't say enough good about this helmet. Looks great, the pictures hardly do it justice. Clearly of superior construction to the Bell. The liner is as comfortable as any helmet I've ever worn. It is super light. Not just light for a full face helmet, but light, period. And most of all, when I put it on my head, I don't feel suffocated. The fact that it makes the wife happy is just gravy. She's even asked me to order one for her to replace her HJC monstrosity.

I ordered a pair of Biltwell goggles from Lowbrow Customs for the cooler months. Haven't received them yet, but I'm looking forward to mating them with this helmet.

The style of the Gringo definitely stands out from the rest of the full face helmets, but that is not what makes this helmet outstanding. It's the plush and comfortable interior, the wide field of vision, and the refreshing ventilation that really make this helmet stand out. Buy it for the style. Keep it for the quality. The Gringo is worth every penny.

Biltwell is a great company with excellent products and awesome customer service.

I tentatively ordered online from Australia. WOW, this is one of the few times I have been pleasantly surprised. Apart from the helmet itself being really high quality and ultra comfortable, I was astounded when it arrived from the states in about 2 weeks or less. Totally impressed with you guys. I am still waiting for a t-shirt from another US place that I ordered 4 weeks before the helmet.

i can't say enough good things about this helmet. old school honkey scooterpimp style aside , it feels incredible. I am amazed by how cool it is , even in the Florida summer. Important to note , since i haven't seen much mention of the shell size difference; the smaller shell for the medium and under is only slightly larger than the Biltwell novelty. I am a tall guy with a long thin face and even the novelty gave me a bit of the bobble head. The chin bar on El Gringo eliminates this problem. It seems like every time I get paid , I buy some Biltwell merchandise. I might have a problem. I need some gloves man , real bad.

This is my favorite helmet! I was hesitant to order without trying it on first but it fit great. I'm using a mirrored shield and this is by far one of the quietest helmets I've worn. Visibility is great and it is comfortable at freeway speeds.
Don't be worried about the lack of air vents. Even when worn with the bubble shield, there is still enough airflow that makes it comfortable in Texas summer heat.
