Note: As of August 2023 this brand new helmet is just filling in at the warehouse. If you don't see the size/color combo you want currently in stock available to purchase, key in your email for aback-in-stock notification. We're also taking names for the new Gringo SV shields, expected a little later this summer.

To be honest we thought the time of the retro full-face helmet had come and gone. Why settle for a facsimile of yesteryear's style when you can have all the comfort, safety, features, and style of a modern full face fiberglass shell?

Two words: Magnetic Grape. And the six other colors offered with the new Gringo SV, welcome (and in the European market, absolutely mandatory) reboot of the company's almost decade-old Gringo platform.

The new helmet gets a much improved hinge mechanism with improved detents, and more importantly it gets generously sized passive vents built into the jaw and back of helmet, and temple vents that can be easily adjusted to regulate airflow and move moisture out of the helmet.

The Gringo SV meets the stringent new ECE 22.06 required for European market distribution, as well as the DOT standard for legal U.S. use.

Where the old Gringo helmets used two shell sizes to cover the full six-size run, the new Gringo SV has three different shells (The same as bell, but fewer than Arai or Shoei). Moreover, the company now uses dual-density EPS liners to give each individual size a dedicated Shell/EPS combo. 

Only the XL and 2XL sizes share a shell/EPS makeup; all other sizes are dedicated. In the long run this means a better fitting helmet per size. Replacement center liners are sold in one thickness per size. Fine tuning is achieved via variable cheek pads.

Technical Details

  • Injection-molded ABS outer shell is lightweight and highly resistant to impacts
  • Evolutionary Gringo S shell styling features front, side, and rear vent ports to improve interior airflow, moisture dissipation, and cooling
  • New Dual Density expanded polystyrene (EPS) internal safety shell absorbs and dissipates impact energy without compromising comfort
  • Adjustable vents above the eye port let you regulate internal airflow to cool and dry your head
  • Molded urethane chin bar pad dissipates energy during front impact
  • Chin strap features brushed fleece Lycra touchpoints for comfort, and a D-ring retention system with red quick-release pull tab for speedy removal
  • CE-certified, injection-molded polycarbonate shield with factory anti-fog treatment applied
    * Hopefully we’ll see a Pinlock version to follow.
  • Improved (over Gringo S) hinge hardware with robust detents
  • Anodized aluminum washers and stainless-steel hinge screws can be swapped with different colors and finishes to personalize the look of your helmet (hinge hardware sets available separately)
  • Removable/replaceable comfort liner and cheek pads are constructed with fleece Lycra and open-cell foam padding to absorb and evaporate perspiration
  • New BioFoam head form panel and ventilated polyester padding maximize airflow around your head to ensure coolness and comfort
  • Molded EPS ear pockets fit select aftermarket audio accessories

Safety Ratings

  • US DOT FMVSS No. 218 compliant
  • ECE R22.06 certified
