First Impressions & Basic Information
The first thing everyone is going to say about the Biltwell Lane Splitter is that it looks cool. This helmet is a fashion statement.
Of course, there will be some naysayers in the looks department because everyone has their own opinions when it comes to style. I think it looks cool. It has a retro enduro helmet kind of vibe minus the peak.
If you can pry your eyes away from the Lane Splitter’s visage for a moment to glance at the spec sheet, you’ll see that style isn’t the only thing to like about it. The materials used are good for the price point.
The helmet is made up of an injection-molded ABS plastic outer shell and comes with a three-piece EPS, molded urethane chin bar pad, CE-certified polycarbonate visor, a removable and washable interior liner, and a chin strap with fleece Lycra, and an adjustable D-ring style retention system with a handy snap for your strap excess.
It also gets more vents in the chin bar than you’ll ever need and a single big exhaust vent up high on the rear of the helmet. Is it the most impressive full-face motorcycle helmet on sale for $250? No, Cameron says the Scorpion EXO-R710 is, and that helmet costs less money, too. I’d have to agree with him although that helmet doesn’t make a killer, retro fashion statement like this one.
