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.

Call me weird, but that looks a bit like Metzeler's old Z4 street tyre (only with some horrible manufacturing defects on the tread pattern)

Michelin already makes Pilot Road 3 sizes to fit the big trailie bikes... kinda hard to follow their thinking here.
