A list of bikes the tires were tested on would be useful.

Why does the product line graphic have engine displacement on the y axis? What does it mean, exactly?

Please comment on the following:

Given 300 lbs on the rear tire inflated at 35 psi:

1) The contribution of sidewall compression to supporting the weight can be ignored.

2) The contact patch must be almost exactly 300/35 square inches.

3) Modifying the spacing of the radial bands changes the shape of the patch, not the area.

Am I wrong?
