​Retro is back with the Biltwell LE Gringo Helmet

Biltwell brings it back with the LE Gringo

That classic full coverage look of the 70’s is finally back in style, with more colours and designs than ever before. The difference is that these helmets are much safer than the ones on the market 40 years ago. The downside is that they’re limited edition, produced in certain numbers of each colour scheme. In other words, you probably won’t get your hands on one. But we hope we’re wrong.

The Biltwell LE Gringo helmet features an injection-molded ABS outer shell that is hand-painted. The inner shell is made of expanded polystyrene. All of the internal padding is hand-stitched and made of lycra. Plus, there’s a BioFoam chin pad. The Biltwell Gringo LE Helmet is lightweight and straightforward which makes it exception considering it covers your entire head.

Sizing is comparable to that of Bell and Arai, so you can order the same size that you were in either of those brands (but you best check their sizing charts to be sure). Whether you’ve been riding since the 70’s or are new to the game and love everything the 70’s represented, this helmet is sure to fit your needs and give you a classic look.
