Giro Manifest Spherical Helmet


Add Protect+ Powered by Extend™

Why We Like The Manifest Spherical Helmet

The Manifest Spherical Helmet premieres Giro's revolutionary Spherical Technology for enhanced safety on the trail. Powered by MIPS, Spherical Technology utilizes a similar slip-plane design as MIPS for greater impact absorption at angular crashes, except Spherical opts for two layers of foam with a slip-plane between the two, instead of a plastic liner. This redirects impact energy by rotating the exterior liner independently from the interior liner, and it enables greater ventilation for a cooler time on the trail as well as a safer one.

Giro geared the Manifest for sweaty riding in hot weather with nineteen Wind Tunnel vents, all amplified thanks to Aura's reinforcement around the arch. XT2 padding provides a comfortable fit, and the lining wicks sweat, dries quickly, and reduces any unwanted odors. Giro also redesigned the Roc Loc Trail Air Fit System for enhanced durability and dynamic strength. The visor adjusts to accommodate eyewear and goggles, and Giro included grippers to make sure either stay in place.

Great mtb helmet

I've used it several times
True to size

Quality is amazing and air vents are generous. It's saved my grape a couple of times. The only thing I would have liked is better sweat management. The inside pad doesn't do a very good job at keeping it out of your eyes.

I absolutely love this helmet. I understand that many people consider it expensive, but when I see bib shorts going for 180 to 280, I think spending 250 on something that will save your life - or quality of life - to be pretty reasonable. Mag closure is super easy once you figure it out. You feel like you're pressing buttons to release it, but really you're just sliding the magnet apart. Once you realize that, it will stop messing with your head! The fit is SO nice. I can see why it's often rated as the most comfortable helmet. Zero pressure points, zero wiggle. I'm so happy I bought it!

ordered this helmet for my wife, backcountry debited the $ (almost $300), then a day later they refunded the bc they withdrew 5 cents too much, then re-debited the price of the helmet. so I had ~$600 withdrawn from my account on a weekend for one helmet. How does a company like this make such a blunder?! Wells Fargo said it could take up to 72 hours to accurately show the correction...if backcountry actually corrects their mistake. I had to file a disputed claim to be on the safe side. It’ll be the last time I order anything through backcountry. lesson learned.

Great helmet review! Thank you

Comfortable and protective

This is a great helmet which I purchased mainly to protect my eyes from the sun and wind because of the visor. It covers my head completely and feels safe and comfortable. I am still having difficulty with the magnetic fastener which is why I List 4 stars. I’ve always worn Giro helmets, however this fastener is not intuitive and many times I miss locking it completely unless I look in the mirror. If it wasn’t such a comfortable, good looking and egg-covering helmet I would have sent it back due to the fastener. My husband liked it a lot and bought one also.

This helmet fits great it is very stylish. I really like the mag buckle as it’s easy to attach and detach. The vents are great for getting air over the noggin It’s definitely on the pricey side but you get what you pay for.
