Biltwell Gringo S Helmet

Growing up in AZ, wearing a helmet wasn’t too common or viewed as the norm. Most of the time I just threw on my backwards hat, jumped on the highway and didn’t think twice. At one point I did wear an open face helmet but I realized that probably wouldn’t do much to save my money maker if something terrible were to happen. The full face helmet options at the time were usually sport bike helmets that featured a plethora of neon swirls or brightly colored skulls melting into a checkered flag with flames and ghouls. Then Biltwell started upping the game on classic helmet and parts designs giving a nod to the past in an oh so tasteful way.
