    Its simple, buy them. There isn't too much to say: they're light, stiff and plenty strong for even the most abusive rider. Atlas are a very veristile crank as it's light enough to run AM but strong enough for DH. You can set them up to run a single, double, or triple ring configuration. To me I'm not sure why you would want to run anything else.

    A note on Saint and Atlas: Since the performance and design are pretty much the same between Saint and Atlas the only reason I would recommend Atlas over Saints is strictly based on looks. Atlas are slimmer and come in a wide assortment of colors, whereas Saints look big and burly.

    Pros
    - Strong and light
    - X-Type makes crank removal easy
    - Cheaper than Saint
    - Simple and sleek design
    - Graphics
    - Crank arm middles are recessed so shoe rub only occurs on the far sides and doesn't effect the graphics
    - Top of the line
    - Available in many colors to suit any bike
    - No need for pedal washers (or don't need to worry about loosing them)

    Cons
    - Pre-2012 X-Types took some muscling to ensure things were tight
    - Still no solution to prevent shoe rub wear on finish
