    Full face helmet with a buckle chin strap NOT a double D-ring strap

    Does this helmet exist anymore?

    My old Pryme full face had the buckle strap. My newer Specialized Deviant has the double D-ring strap and I absolutely HATE taking it off and on. I'm sure the double D is more secure, but I really miss the convenience of a buckle strap.

    why would you want to sacrifice protection for convenience?

    I can usually just loosen the double-d ring instead of completely unbuckling it to take it off. Actually pretty handy since I can just plop it back on and pull to tighten instead of fumbling around with a buckle.

    Unless they've changed since I got mine a year or so ago, the Giro Remedy has a buckle.

    i like the buckle on my remedy, but i do have to tighten it before every run. it has a tendency to loosen a bit.

    i agree, d ring is annoying while shuttling or downhilling since you take your helmet off so often

    Remedy does have the buckle system. Same with mine on getting lose but I think that's because I use the straps to take it off my head and loosen it by accident

    Thanks for the responses. Seems like the Giro Remedy is the last FF helmet available with a QR buckle.
    O'Neal fury RL is another option I discovered with a magnetic buckle strap.

    Try these

    I used them on my motorcycle helmets but they can probably work. The outer part is plastic but the parts that snap together and hold the strap are metal. And you can leave the D rings on while you are deciding if you like it.
