Biltwell Bonanza Helmet - Solid Biltwell has attacked the status quo with a line of DOT-approved open-face helmets in a whole new range of tough-looking paint finishes. In a few short years, Biltwell open-face helmets have become as common as denim and leather at motorcycle hoedowns from Baja to the Big Apple. There's a Biltwell Bonanza helmet to fit everyone's individual head and style. This leaner, lighter and even more comfortable DOT-approved 3/4 lid boasts the same hand-painted finishes as Biltwell's other lids on an even lower-profile molded ABS shell. The Bonanza'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. Bubble Shield available, sold separately. Note Helmets may have size labels that differ from the attached size chart. RevZilla finds success with ordering approximately 1 full size smaller than the size chart indicates.

 Bell Custom 500 Cobra Helmet
Bell Custom 500 Cobra Helmet
Bell Custom 500 Cobra Helmet If you are channeling your inner superhero, chances are the Bell 500 Cobra will be your choice from among the Bell Custom 500 Helmets . Stylish red and white stripes overlaid with a blue and white lightening type pattern and stars is definitely something Captain America would pick. Roy Richter's design is the perfect foil for this custom paint-inspired graphic. And while the helmet does not come with superpowers it does come with modern protective technology that was not available to Richter in 1954. By combining a custom fiberglass layup with a specially designed EPS foam layer, Bell engineers were able to craft a helmet that is at once light weight, narrow in profile, and DOT-compliant providing performance that works just as well as this helmet looks. Features Custom fiberglass shell Custom-quilted liner Chrome trim (graphic dependent) Integrated snaps for aftermarket shields and visors Padded chin strap with D-ring closure and strap keeper Five-year warranty Certification DOT Weight 880g

Purchased the pants to go with the matching jacket. The pants are a little stiff out of the box but, after day 2 of wearing them they loosened up and fit perfect. they have kept me warn in 30 weather as well as dry in moderate rain. My only negative would be the knee armour is lacking any adjustability. It's a very small negative and I am just wearing the pants with the knee padding and removed the armour all together. Great combo with the jacket lighter and warmer than the leather jacket and chaps I was wearing prior to purchase..Maybe I can get a few more Harley guys to switch over from leather...Dry and warm is better than trying to be cool.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable
Yes, I recommend this product.

I puchased this jacket and the matching pants for road trips to save some saddlebag space by leaving the raingear at home. Who knew it would become my everyday jacket. I have yet to be in anything colder than 30 or wetter than a mild rain but so far his is everything it has been promised to be..I may standout in the Harley crowd with a riding suit and a 3/4 helmet but I can log miles in warm dry comfort.
Pros Rugged, Comfortable
