Great helmet but terrible strap design

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I loved this helmet. Great fit, easy to adjust and great ventilation. But it is as if the Lazer engineers took off for August vacation when it was time to design the helmet straps. The straps are just plain terrible. The magnetic buckle is neat but inconvenient, the side adjustment is dysfunctional, and the straps are impossible to get tight enough so that they don't flap in the wind.
