I set out to do a writeup on the release of this new helmet by our friends over at Biltwell this morning and quickly realized once again that these guys know how to run a business. I hopped over to their site to see how they described the new lids and hell, they wax poetic and build such great looking stuff, why not let them take it away? Normally we get a chance to get our hands on any products we endorse - but since we're already using their DOT Hustler lids and know these guys - we'll vouch for 'em until we get our greasy hands on these.
From Biltwell: When we introduced our super-comfortable open-face novelty helmets seven years ago, we helped resurrect a style that was synonymous with chopper builders and bikeriders of the '60s and '70s. After reenergizing the game with a virtual Skittle sack of gloss and Megaflake colors, we next attacked the status quo with a line of DOT-approved open-face helmets in a whole new range of tough-looking flat paint finishes. In a few short years, Biltwell open-face helmets became as common as denim and leather at motorcycle hoedowns from to Baja to the Big Apple.
Today we’re changing the game again with our brand-new El Fuerte helmet. This leaner, lighter and even more comfortable DOT-approved 3/4 lid boasts the same hand-painted finishes as our other lids on an even lower-profile molded ABS shell. The el Fuerte's interior boasts a custom-shaped EPS safety shell and a hand-stitched liner with moisture wicking brushed Lycra panels and open-cell foam padding for breathability and comfort. The rugged nylon neck strap features plated steel D-rings and a snap strap end retainer with Biltwell anvil branding. Available in six sizes, XS-XXL, there's a Biltwell el Fuerte helmet to fit everyone's individual head and style.
Head over and check out the rad new Biltwell helmets and do business with them. Do it.
