As anyone who has looked to get a new cellphone service plan in the past decade can attest, upgrades are fantastic. It’s like, we have one thing that we think is awesome, and then BAM!... a company adds something to it that just makes us wonder how we ever managed without it before. That is kind of what is going on with the new Biltwell Gringo S Helmet.
Built upon the seriously popular vintage-style shell of the original Gringo helmet, the Gringo S takes it a step further in style, usability, and protection by adding in a hinged eyeport shield. This totally gives it an old-school F1 racecar type of flavor and offers an easy, convenient form of eye coverage that does not detract from the classic look or feel. With a hand-sewn brushed Lycra liner, internal BioFoam chin padding, and a rugged aluminum face shield mechanism, this helmet brings all of the essence of the 70’s to 2015.
If a solid color just isn’t your style, they have you covered for that as well with the new Biltwell Gringo S Checker Helmet. With the option to choose from either a Black or Silver main shell, the checker pattern runs right down the middle of the lid for a symmetrical infusion of moto-style. It is the international signal for “lets race” after all, so don’t be shy to roll on the throttle a bit in this helmet and let your presence be known.
The Biltwell Gringo S Spectrum Helmet is another option for the graphical fans out there. As the name would imply, this helmet is themed with livewave inspired streaks running the circumference of the helmet around the chin bar. Go with the Black option to make the lines really pop, or take it to the vintage max with the super baller Wine color.
Look, we all like the newest version, we like added value, and we certainly like to look cool. For fans of vintage style and super unique motorcycle helmets… the Biltwell Gringo S and accompanying graphics are the way to go. These lids are currently available through pre-order and will be on the market soon!
Have fun out there, be safe, and as always…
Enjoy the ride,
