they are seen on the new GS.

when your leaned over in a corner in the dirt, what is there to bite into the dirt?
it looks like most all smooth rubber to me???

i only see biting edges going across the tire for starting and stopping grip.
where are the biting edges 90 degrees to those to keep the tire from slipping sideways?

i'm calling these 95/5 tires not 80/20 like they used to be, but we'll see.
