I was a little skeptical at this price point, but I am very pleased with this helmet! It's very light, with really good peripheral view (better than my $600 Arai) with that 70's retro-cool looks. The snapped strap retainer is adjustable which is simply ingenious. The bad: the visor does whistle just a tad when closed, so the jury is still out if it will keep rain out. There are no vents, so when going slow it's warm until you lift the visor, but again at this price point, you can't go wrong!
Lightweight, comfy, and makes my bike run better. Well, it's at least quiet enough so I can't HEAR when the bike is running like crap. If that's not reason enough to buy one of these, the wife says it makes me look like David Beckham...until I take it off of course.
Awesome helmet, so much more comfortable then my previous helmet, and for being a full face it's quite light. Would recommend this helmet to anyone. Great product
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.
