I have a feeling I know the answer to this but I'll ask anyway. Does anyone use a quick disconnect system on there helmet strap or just the D-rings? I've heard some mixed reviews and just curious because the D-rings are just a pain but worth the time if it will help save my melon.

I wouldn't ever use anything but the d-rings! Quick disconnects...never seen them but I don't want my helmet to quickly disconnect when I really need it!!

Looks to me like plastic quick clip versus metal D-ring. Football helmets have a quick snap, but how often do they get knocked off after a nice hit? A motorcycle helmet may take several hits during an accident. I'll take D-rings. My Shoei has a red strap on the inner D-ring that makes for quick removal.

How's that?

Has anyone cut the strap down on there helmet so there is not so much to tuck away? Any problems with freying? (I know, I know, your afreyed knot!!! good one)

thanks

To undo the D-rings, you have to loosen the strap going through the inner D-ring. when you pull on the little red strap on the inner D-ring, it loosens it's hold on the strap. My Shoei (TZ-1) also has a plastic catch on the end that fits into the two D-rings so there is no tucking.
