BILT Roadster Open-Face Motorcycle Helme
This makes my 7th helment, have bought Bell, scorpion to name a couple. Also have a Shoei full face that was given to me. This one is by far, the best. My search is finally over. The problem I have been trying to resolve is finding a helmet that is quiet (hate ear plugs), comfortable (on my ears), and does not buffer in the wind giving me a headache. I could resolve....at best, 2 of the 3 issue with all the other helmets. This one did, and for only [$]bucks. The fit is tight and snug without hurting my ears. With the face sheild down it is as quiet as either of my 2 full face helmets, one of which is a Shoei. The sheild fits so solid, that all the air is blocked out. Because it is so solid, I feel no buffing from the wind. My one....and only one complaint, is that they do now have any tinted sheilds. Easy fix was.....I can still wear my sunglass without losing any of the comfort. I'm gonna have to buy stock in this company before everyone catches on.

PROS: Extremly quiet, Fits great ears dont hurt

CONS: No tinted visor available

This helmet saved my life.
On April 14. 2012 I took a fall off my bike going 70 mph. I was knocked out after my head hit the ground but my head is still intact and i'm alive! I'm buying another one.

Great helmet, great deal
I've been looking for a decent 3/4 helmet for some time, but nothing appealed to me until I came across the Bilt Roadster. After reading the positive reviews, I decided to check it out at my local CG store. I happened to catch it on sale, but even at regular price, it's a good value. So, I bought mine in Matte Black.

True to the listing, the helmet does run a half-size larger. I usually wear a Medium, but the Small is perfect for me.

For reference, I ride a Suzuki M50 cruiser with a Memphis Blades Malibu windshield. The Bilt Roadster actually has less wind noise and wind entry at the chin than my Raider or HJC full-face helmets. It's far superior to my old modular helmet while offering the same flip-up capability.

While I can't speak for its performance without a windshield, there is a little buffeting that happens (for me, anyway) around 85 mph. Considering that we're not supposed to regularly travel at those speeds, I'd say that its hardly an issue.

The choice of 4 face shields is nice, but I would like to see a few more colors offered. Still, it's a great value and well worth a look.

PROS: Comfortable, Good Value, Minimal buffeting, Low wind noise

So nice, bought it twice
Bought this helmet for the wife when she wanted a little more protection, but not hassle with a full face helmet cause she wears glasses. When she started to ride her own bike she used this helmet over her full face modular and half helmets. She loved it so much we just ordered her a new one in flat black

PROS: All weather use, Comfortable, Good vision

Great Value
Great value for the money. Lots of little features that add up. Front/rear vents, great visability, reduced wind noise with face shield down, and even a nice storage bag. My shorty 1/2 helmet from Skid Lid will always bey first choice, but I bought this helmet for rain and cold weather riding. Face shield has great coverage without obstructing my view. Almost identical to the HD helmet my son wears for a fraction of the cost. My buddy crashed in one of these and the helmet had three pretty good scrapes, but he was fine. The helmet did it's job. Can't say enough about the quality for the money!

PROS: Adequate Ventilation, Good Visibility, Comfortable Padding, Fits Snug

BEST USES: Passenger, Everyday Rides, Poor Weather

Good helmet for a good price
I've been searching for my first "retro style" helmet since buying my Bonnie T100. I was considering buying the Bell custom 500 but was disappointed that the local Cycle Gear did not have them in stock. I came upon the Bilt Roadmaster and decided to try it on. What really got my attention was the the replacement faceshields. The dark tint or the reflective faceshield really gave the helmet a different look. The included clear faceshield gives it the retro style feel and the darker tints made it more aggressive and sporty looking. It's like having two different helmets for the price of a new faceshield which was reasonable at about $15. I got the wine (red) with the reflective faceshield. The helmet is DOT approved and it's Cycle Gear's sponsored product line with an included 5 year warranty. I do question the velcro holding the lining. Would've preferred if it was sewn in or something instead of glued. Other than that, I would recommend the helmet.

PROS: reasonable price, Changeable faceshields

CONS: Velcro holding lining

I bought the helmet for my wife. She really likes the nostalgic style compared to newly designed helmets. The fit was excellant. She is very pleased with all features of this helmet. I highly recommend it.

Great Helmet!
i bought this helmet for my MSF riding course,wearing the helmet for 4 hours for two days, i was never uncomfortable wearing this helmet. Also the cost is incredible. A few people had helmets that cost a lot more, were asking me where i got my Bilt helmet. Cycle Gear Baby! I will buy more gear in the future with quality gear like this.

PROS: Great Value

HOW DO I REPLACE
VISIOR?
A shopper on Nov 2, 2016
Does it have speaker cutouts in the ears?
A shopper on Oct 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I wouldn't say it has cutouts but it does has room for speakers. I added a Sena wireless headset to mine without any issue. Great helmet at a great price.
can you take on and off the classic flat visor?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Easy to do and easy to replace with a tinted one if you wish. I always keep a few screens as extras whenever one needs to be replaced for all the helmets that I have myself and guest riders.
Does this face shield meet the Vehicle Equipment Safety Commission Standard 8 or VESC 8?
