Strengths:    Traction, profile, high pressure, easy to install

Weaknesses:    Not as supple as some other top tier race tires I've tried.

Bottom Line:   
My initial impression of the Atom Comp is the narrowness of the tire (at 23mm, narrower than my R3's or Paperlite Pluses). When I began riding them, I was surprised by the level of traction. Hutch has created a tire that because of it's relatively narrow width has low rolling resistance and nimbility, combined with a compound that promotes traction, even on wet roads. I run mine at 110psi, and they inspire a good level of confidence on corners, descents, etc. Easy to install and look good (mine are yellow to match my frame).

Strengths:    Superfast, supple and grippy.

Weaknesses:    None so far apart from the price unless you get them on a deal!

Bottom Line:   
Simply awesome. Superfast, supple and brimming with grip. I hope that the bad reviewer on here "just" had a bad batch because I cannot fault these tyres so far (500km). Not used them in the wet but Hutchinson clearly state that this is a dry weather tyre.

Strengths:    They are light

Weaknesses:    Punctures, poor construction

Bottom Line:   
Purchased these on recommendation from a friend in the industry. These are the worst tires I have ever owned. I have one on my rear for about 1 1/2 months and the tires were shredded after about 500 miles. I bought 2, so I changed it with another, hoping for good results. The second one was shredded and the tire started pulling away from the bead after about 350 miles.
