I just got my Gringo S in the mail, flat primer. I didn't know what to expect. This is my first Biltwell product and I worried that it might be more style than substance. I took my first ride tonight with the the helmet and I was absolutely impressed with how comfortable, light, and quiet it was. I don't normally write reviews for things I buy, but this was such a good value for the price that I felt like I had to speak up. I have a pretty large head (between 7 1/2 and 7 3/8. I got the extra large and it fits perfect. I almost feel like wearing it while hanging around the house. You can never be too careful, right? Anyway, great purchase, and now a customer for life.
Not my first Biltwell product. Surely not my last. The fit, finish, and quality are superb. I just took her for a ride in 98 degree Alabama summer weather and vents are not missed. The little details stand out to me. No shortcuts it appears. Quality counts indeed. Thank you.
After decades of open face helmets, my Gringo S (red primer) is my first ever full face brain bucket. Purchased after my June 6th, 2015 MC crash on I-15, just a mile north of Hemet, CA. I have about 2K miles on it now. Two weeks ago I did a 1,400 mile, 5-day solo unsupported ride/camp into the Colorado Rockies. I nailed 5 high altitude dirt passes on my dirt sled Triumph with my Gringo S. My longest days were the en route to the mountains, approx. 430 each direction. Riding straight through this helmet was perfect in every way, ventilation, comfort and aerodynamics. The designers of this helmet nailed it!
I absolutely love this helmet. Lightweight for a full face without all the extras. The fit was absolutely perfect on my head and very comfortable. The primer color and finish are flawless. Took a ride from central to south TX (70-75mph) and there was no fatigue, great aerodynamics. Overall, I will buy another if I lost this one!
I've been holding off getting a full face for a long time since I enjoy my bonanza so much, but hey this stuff is dangerous and it's probably a good idea. It's also nice for when it rains. The full face does not restrict my view downwards nearly as much as I anticipated, and the flip/locking shield is awesome.
