Its finally here, the helmet Australian riders have been asking for is now approved for our roads! The ECE Approved Gringo has arrived!

A Word About Helmet Fit:
With added EPS safety foam, these helmets offer a more secure fit on the lower portion / cheek area than our previous DOT only version. As with all of our other helmets, we offer cheek pads with various thicknesses to truly dial in your lid’s fitment if the stock pads don’t cut it. If you in between sizes, we recommend going up a size.
Please Note: We have found the new ECE Gringo to be a half size smaller than other Biltwell helmets, its noticeably tighter to pull on over your head. If you’re at the top end of the size scale for your helmet size we recommend going up a size.
