I live in Washington USA but I wanted something different. Try Craft Helmets. I bought their RX-6 Evo Black. The strap is like a seatbelt buckle. Pretty cool. Haven't ridden an extreme amount with it yet so can't give a vetran opinion. But I'd deff recommend looking into it. http://www.craft-helmets.com/ Very unique styles and supposed to be really good on safety. Check em out.
