Lots has been said about the PST in the Manitoba news recently. We’re not going to get political on you because we’re just here to enjoy bikes, but we will tell you that no matter the PST percent you now don’t have to pay any whatsoever on bike helmets.
Bike helmets are now mandatory for everyone under 18 to wear when riding, and they’re a really smart idea for everyone to wear no matter the age. Actually, if anything it’s even smarter for older people to wear them because they have farther to fall and don’t recover as quickly.
At any rate, when the new helmet law went into effect on May 1 the PST was eliminated on ALL bicycle helmet purchases regardless of the wearer’s age.
Just thought you should know!
