GEAR: Biltwell's Gringo Full Face Helmet Has Arrived

My new Biltwell Gringo helmet arrived yesterday and I've since clocked 2.5 hours in it.
I'll give a more detailed review after I've spent more time under the lid but to sum it up so far: plush.


  1. What size did you get? And what helmet (& size) do you normally wear? Trying to get an understanding of fit before having one brought to Oz.

    1. I was a Large in a Bell Custom 500 and I'm a Large in the Gringo as well.

  2. Please keep us updated. I too wear a Bell Custom 500 and want a full face that gives off that retro vibe. I own a full face now, and while it is comfortable, I don't particularly like all the fins and vents. The Gringo is totally what I was looking for, seeing as how I would have to save a pretty penny to buy a Ruby Castel. I just want to know, how is the ventilation? Do you get hot or foggy in it?
