Fantastic Closeout Deals
I try to do a roundup of the best gear deals out there every week. This week the deals that caught my eye were the retro helmets out there that offer cool classic style and modern materials and construction at a notable percentage off.
While not every retro helmet is marked down, you’ll notice that a long list of them is on Revzilla. I’ve included five of my favorites that have 40 percent off or more. Some are even over 50 percent off. These are helmets that are top-quality lids, but Revzilla is trying to move these out either because there is new product coming in, or there are just a few sizes left. Check out my picks below, and think about heading over to Revzilla to check out all of the deals on helmets.
Biltwell Gringo Helmet
Regular Price: $159.95, Sale Price: $79.99 (50% Off)
The Biltwell Gringo helmet is about as simple as a full-face helmet can come. It lacks a face shield, meaning you’ll need to either get some good glasses or get yourself a snap-on shield. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean this lid is poor quality. It features an injection-molded ABS outer shell with a hand-painted finish. There’s also an EPS layer, hand-sewn removable brushed Lycra liner with diamond-stiched quilting, BioFoam in the chin area, a D-ring chin strap retention system and rubber accenting around the eye-port and bottom of the helmet. At 50 percent off, you’ll currently save about $80. For that price, this is a good helmet.
