Biltwell is transitioning to a new shield/base plate system they are calling Gen 2. These helmets use the Gen 1 system, but if you buy a Gen 2 replacement shield it comes with the Gen 2 base plate kit and is an easy swap.
Promotional Gift Cards are good towards the future purchase of any item on our site and never expire. The Promotional Gift Card cannot be used at the time of purchase. Promotional Gift Cards are issued after the return period expires, you can manually request the Promotional Gift Card early but this voids the return period for the helmet so make sure it is a keeper before requesting here
