[Canadian Tire] CCM bike helmet $9.97 (YMMV)

Saw this today at Heartland Canadian Tire in GTA

Regular price $55. Clearance 9.97. They have a ton of them there on clearance but in blue colour only.

May be good if you are looking for one. Weather is getting nicer.

Check manufacture date, i believe the materials degrade over time.

Also make sure there's a sticker on the inside that states it is CPSC certified.

This is your head people! One of the few places you should splurge for the best.

Its CCM and sold by CT...its a given that these are certified. Guaranteed that these are from previous season and/or discontinued. Also prerty sure that reg. price is super inflated as CT as usual sells pretty much everything in their store at 50-60% off on the regular. Having said all this, I doubt these are "old" enough to be concerned, and it is a good deal as long as it FITS properly...that should be your main focus in considering this specific helmet.

$55 still at my local store, according to the webpage.

Pretty sure that CCM (large brand) sold in Canadian Tire (large Canadian retailer) would be certified. I don't think they'd be able to sell Bike helmets unless they were safety certified.

So last month they were on sale for 15 bucks but I missed the sale by one day and they forgot to remove the tag so they had to give me the $10 price error credit, so I only paid 5 bucks
THE HARDEST THING ABOUT SALES,IS KNOWING WHERE NOT TO WASTE TIME

Like your tires, check that regular price isn't over-inflated.

I hope it performs better then their bikes. I bought a CCM mountain bike a month ago (reg $650 on sale $349) and man, was it a Lemon. I went for a ride with my wife, and while peddling at the same or slightly faster rate, she would just pull away from me. Played with all the gears but to no avail. Even a 50 year old lady easily passed me by while i was peddling for my dear life. Needless to say, returned for full refund. Went to a real bike store and bought a Giant bike. 10x better, but had to pay $700 this time.

There is zero proof of helmet materials degrading over time when not in use.

The "best" helmets (i.e. most expensive) tend to offer better fit, styling, features, and weight. Not safety. Even the cheapest helmets that are certified with the same standard are just as safe.

I'd say that last part about a $700 Giant. Sounds like your problem is you don't know how to tune-up/maintain a bike, and you just got lucky with the bike builder who assembled your Giant. On a related note, CanTire tends to have TERRIBLE bike builders. Actually, the correct term for them is assemblers, because that's all they do. No tune-up, just slap the parts together. I'm surprised they aren't flooded with returns, since most buyers at CCM price points don't have the knowledge to even make a simple shifter adjustment.

What are you talking about? Giant make very decent bikes. CCM doesnt even come into conversation of top 10 bike makers. I basically bought a solid company entry level bike (hybrid for commuting). To compare to cars, its like I bought a Honda Civic instead of an acura RLX. The difference is i will be riding my bike 2-3 times a month only in the summer. I am not a pro rider and dont need a $3k bike. I bought this bike at a bike shop, i get free tuneup for a year and discount tuneups after that as long as i use them. The guy didnt BS on me and told me this thing will last me for life given the casual riding of it. And after testing it, i can agree it will. Not tk mention, all the positive reviews I saw for a solid entry level bike. So not sure where your post is coming from. At least i can say CCM was junk, and i agree with your post about CT employees not assembling properly as the potential issue.

Having said all of this, I am sure CCM cant muck up a helmet. But wouldn’t be shocked if they did

Looks like the Canadian Tire near me has it for this price. Might swing by later to check it out.

There is no official policy on PM'ing other CT locations, particularly with heavily discounted items. This is done at the sole discretion of the manager on duty. If you ask nicely and they approve it, great for you. If not, move along or pony up asking price.
Sililar to SDM much of thier "blowout" priced items are location apecific, thus YMMV.

Be aware that this particular helmet is smaller than other brands/models. There are 3 in Newmarket, ON but rings regular price at $54.

Giant does make decent bikes. They also make shit bikes. Same applies to most large companies in the space. Shimano makes parts at every price point, and the entry level stuff is terrible. CCM doesn't rate high because all they make are entry level bikes. You didn't by a Civic. Not even close.

You think $3k is pro? I paid more than that for my current used mountain bike. And that's not including the wheel upgrade I made later because even $5k mountain bikes come with average at best wheels. I'm not bragging about spending money, that's just what it costs for a solid mountain bike that can handle BC trails. Want pro level? You'll be looking north of $10k - mountain or road bike.

When I fell off my bike several years back, I made sure to buy a nice helmet. I found a comfortable Gyro helmet with MIPS for just over $100 at Cycle Path. Really happy with it.
