This helmet saved my dome getting bodychecked by a truck. Fit great to the last second!

Incredibly comfortable, basic but eye-catching. I like the strap snap upgrades from my older Biltwell helmets. It doesn't squeeze my sunglasses into my temples. After two accidents wherein my face shield was scratched to shreds I am convinced the 3/4 helmet route is optimal, and this specific lid is the very best way to protect yourself while maintaining a hefty amount of badass-ery. A+ as usual, Biltwell.

Really nice helmet.You can see, feel and even smell quality. Nice helmet pouch and stickers included in the box. 4 stars because my helmet came with visible glue marks were the trim is glued. In general, this vintage look helmet is really worth it.

Absolute excellent quality in craftsmanship and comfort. You'll be hard pressed to find a better helmet, and for the price it's simply no contest. I doubt I'll be going elsewhere for my supplies. Customer service itself is without a doubt the best. I dig the style and the attitude that biltwell slaps on their products, and they absolutely hold true to their name.

Bought this baby used for a quarter of the price and it's a super comfortable, cool looking helmet. The big face opening allows you to easily wear sunglasses and it allows for a ton of airflow. It has a really cool style and looks dope. I would highly recommend, and am looking at buying another or a bonanza for when I ride with the females... Do yourself a favor, if you;re on a budget and value as well as timeless style get yourself a Gringo. I got XL and wear a 7 1/2- 7 5/8 fitted hat and it's a perfect fit.

Love this helmet but super pissed that i got mine last year and wanted chrome trim but it wasnt available then and dont have the money to drop now. Paired with a bubble sheild and you have the best setup out there

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!

Just got my Gringo and it is awesome! After loving my Bonanza in a large, I got my gringo in large and it fits great. A little tight on the cheeks, but I imagine it'll break in like my bonanza. Super comfy, great looking, good airflow...this helmet does it all! Perfect for anyone wanting a good looking, vintage helmet, but that offers more protection and doesn't make you look like a bobblehead, look no further. Literally order one right now. You won't regret it. Now I just need a prime cut vest to complete the look...

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 .

Couldn't find any styled out full face helmets in Australia so I had a Gringo sent over. Love the helmet. Also doesn't fit a Bell 3 snap shield. Sick gear though lads. Keep up the good work.

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.

This is the best helmet I've ever had. Even at speed it doesn't pull my head up, and at 90 degrees still has great ventilation. Oh, and look factor is awesome!

Received my Gringo today! I have previously owned a Fulmer V2 and it was a L size helmet. I ordered an XL Gringo and it fits like a charm! Cheek pads snap in and out easily....I purchased the goggles

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.

I ordered a medium, it was too big. Called Biltwell, who was super easy to deal with, shipped it back and swapped out it for a small which fits great. Super stoked. The Moto gloves are awesome too. Next up are some bars. Highly recommended.

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.

This is the best full face I've ever worn. I can't believe how high the quality is. No buffeting on on the freeway, perfect vision, comfy fit, glasses or goggles, no problem. Fast shipping. Insane product. Nice price.

I've just got it today! It's amazing that I placed an order only two days ago and I'm already wearing it!
It fits perfect! (mine is large) Great visibility and no wind catching on freeway. I wear goggles over it and feel absolutely great. I also have a biltwell ¾ but I’ll be wearing this helmet more often.
