Strength:

Good fit and adjustability
Generous parts supply
effective venting

Weakness:

doesn't hang up well when commuting
pads not as absorbent as my old Giro

I picked this up on sale at Performance to replace my worn out Giro Hex. Out of the box one of the nicer things is a second set of pads and some plugs for the visor mounts if you want to run without the visor all the time.
The initial fit took some getting used to after 6 years wearing a Giro helmet and the padding on the Spider Loc was actually one of the harder things to get used to but I've learned to like it since the helmet stays in place better with less pressure.
On my head the the straps are great, the webbing is very soft feeling and they hold adjustment. My minor quibble is the the straps don't tie in to the retention piece like a Giro Roc-Loc so it doesn't hang from my handlebars as neatly when I'm on the train. Also pads don't seem to soak up quite as much sweat since I can't get a stream of water when I squeeze them. Overall I'm very happy with this helmet so far and highly recommend it for general XC trail and road riding
