Bryce at Tam Bikes (357 Miller Ave, Mill Valley, CA) turned me on to this great helmet. Ultra-lightweight, with quick, easy adjustments to fit yr. head, plus an ingenious front buckle that can tighten or loosen the strap easily. Uvex helmets are made in Germany. My old helmet was so floppy I was afraid it wouldn't be enough protection if I went flying. This one feels secure.
