The BILT Helmet is made by a company called MHR helmets. MHR works at the entry level price points but does a fairly good job.

The Bilt is the same shell as the Sparx. However, I got a look at one recently, and noticed what I - personal opinion here - feel is a very important detail.

The helmet is the same shell as the Sparx Nexus, which is a helmet I feel is quite good. However, to incorporate the flip-down shield into a "normal" shell, a huge part of the thickness of the EPS liner in the front has been removed. This is how they added the flip-down reducing the thickness of the energy absorbing EPS liner material, to create space for the visor to be stored in.
