The Biltwell Gringo S is a full face retro motorcycle helmet that complies with modern DOT safety specifications. It has a hand-painted, injection-molded ABS outer shell, an expanded polystyrene inner shell with hand-stitched padding, cheek pads, and a BioFoam chin bar cushion for comfort on longer rides.
Each Gringo S has a flip up shield fitted with a snap on the left side to keep it shut when desired. Biltwell offers the Gringo Helmet in sizes ranging from XS through to XXL, and there are an array of colours and patterns to choose from.
