Retro Style, Good Protection
Matches the charm of the custom old machines. Biltwell has nailed the retro style yet built their helmets to a high standard. The interior of the helmet is soft, supple felt padding and fabrics. It fits more like a novelty helmet but with superior protection.
Fit of a ¾ Helmet
It has a different fit than the uniform fit of most full face helmets. The strap of the helmet is adorned with Lycra and features a flat D-ring fastener with adjustable snap and retainer. The fit is true to size and gives you a secure, snug feeling. The Gringo has a small/medium eye port. Rubber or chrome accent edging on the shell and eye port make it functional and stylish. It is big enough to wear goggles, but the opening is a tight fit.
Wearing glasses will open up your field of vision, or use a shield. The visibility from is going less than other full face helmets but it is not problematic. Noise is pretty much standard with no more or no less than any other helmet available. It is heavier than a 3/4 helmet, but lighter than a lot of full face helmets. It is basically a ¾ helmet with a chin bar.
