    What full-face helmets have regular buckles?

    I know D's are easy to adjust and safe, but they annoy me.

    What models have regular clip buckles? (Or better yet ratcheting buckles, like Uvex XC helmets) Just collecting a list to try and find - need a new full face.

    Online pictures and descriptions often omit this info.

    What is your favorite buckle design?

    My POC Cortex Flow uses a Fastex-style plastic buckle. Mine is on or off in a couple seconds, while my friend is still fiddling with the D-ring on his D3. For the way I use my helmet, I prefer it

    Any helmet you choose.
    I hate D-ring fasteners and install quick releases on all my full face helmets. The Echo clips have a good fan base.

    Sew a fabric tab on the bottom D-ring. This allows for easier take-off with gloved hands. Just pull on the tab and the strap feeds through the rings.

    A large amount of the Bell lineup had them the last time I shopped for a full-face three years ago. I doubt that has changed much, it's very practical and they are easy to do up, even with gloves. I find Bell helmets to be more comfortable on long, hot days on the trails too, which is a plus as well.
