Strengths:    None come to mind... I guess it was cheap on discount.
Or... it beats riding in cotton shirt.

Weaknesses:    Fabrics
Logo application
Overall design

Bottom Line:   
The Spiral has been designed by non-bikers. The fabric choices are weird- the arm extensions are cut for going over armor, which is a nice idea. But they are also made of mesh- which means it's shreddable and the breathability is useless over armor pads.

The big logo on the front uses some kind of solid dye application, which means that it cuts down on the breathability of the entire chest area, and there is no zip to compensate for this.

Overall, this is a jersey that's been designed to look great on a catalog and to appeal to logo lovers. But it's seriously lame from a riding point of view. The only thing it's better than would be some completely non-biking piece of clothing, like a cotton hoody.
