Overall the helmet is pretty nice but it does have some cons that I believe don't make it worth the price. The liner is comfortable and fits nice. Some of the negatives are riding with the viser up, the helmet whistles above 20 mph. Turning your head with out the viser snapped causes the visor to open. Where the shield sits against the helmet doesn't seal the best and is a bit drafty. The helmet was a gift so I can't complain to much but for the money I would not buy another
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.
