Default Striking a Match

Upon reading that Giro helmets are being boycotted by nutcases, I
logged into DuckDuckGo to see whether any of their models would suit
me when I replace my current foam hat. A cursory glance at Giro's Web
site showed a bunch of pictures of helmets with the chin straps
carefully folded out of sight (And what's this nonsense about "men's
helmets" and "women's helmets"? Men's and women's feet are different
shapes, but a head is a head.)

So I substituted "D-Ring" for Giro in the search bar. And got
page after page of *motorcycle* helmets. Ayup, when a helmet is
seriously intended to prevent injury, it isn't fastened on with a
flimsy, unreliable "parachute buckle" that can't be adjusted with the
hat on your head.

I did find that my local bike shop carries Giro Helmets. Of course,
the same page said that they are available at a shop that closed ten
years ago.
