After initially struggling to get the Atom Comp onto the rim, we found the grip to be pretty decent. In the dry we were confident railing it round corners but one too many slides in the wet left us doubting their ability in all weathers. Being a lightweight tyre, we were a little worried about puncture protection.

Verdict

But with their polyamide puncture protection layer, the Atoms didn’t let us down.

    Every time you guys review a slick tyre you make up a story about it not gripping in the wet. Lies.
