A motorcycle helmet strap is not part of the original component of a helmet. It came as an afterthought, and it has come to be the most important part of the helmet, kind of.

Are bike helmets supposed to be tight?
A good-fitting helmet should be snug but not annoyingly tight. It should sit level on your head (not tilted back) with the front edge one inch or less above your eyebrows so that your forehead is protected. Push the helmet from side to side and back to front.
How do you loosen a helmet?
Shake your head from side to side. The helmet should not move for you to know that it fits well. The visor should also rest just above your eyebrows so as to not impede your vision. Even your peripheral vision should be uninhibited as that is useful on the road.
Should a motorcycle helmet squeeze your cheeks?
If the helmet fits as it should, you should feel the cushions against your cheeks. They’ll be pushed up a little, like “chipmunk cheeks.” (Note: Open face helmets do not have cheek pads, so they will not give this effect.) Your cheeks should move, not the helmet. If it’s sliding, go down at least a size.
