The Atom Galactik is all new from the tread down. New compound, new casing and new puncture protection. The tread compound contains more natural rubber to liven-up the ride while keeping it grippy. New casing nylon offers a resilent yet super efficient ride. The under-tread puncture protection that extra layer of protection without compromising the ride. Thomas Voeckler and team Europcar participated in the development of this tire.
Hutchinson launched Road Tubeless technology in 2006 after five years of development and testing. Tubeless technology affords a more supple, safer and efficient ride when using a Hutchinson Road Tubeless tire matched with a compatible Hutchinson approved wheel and Protect’Air Max latex tire sealant. True Road Tubeless tires can be used with or without sealant. Tubeless Ready tires require sealant to make the casing airtight.
The premier Road Tubeless tire for efficiency, weight, and performance. Lab tested against the Hutchinson Pro Tour Tubular the Galactik was 6% more efficient in rollout tests.
This is a race day tire. It's light, narrow and fast. It won's wear as a long as heavier Road Tubeless tire. But at 240g it's all about performance.

- Skinwall technology (SKW) consists of placing a layer of rubber on the central section of the tire only, in order to form the tread. Prior to this, the sidewalls are covered with a very thin rubber coating. This technology reduces the tire’s weight and increases its flexibility, therefore improving its performance and comfort.
