Acceleration and braking traction is accomplished via horizontally-aligned grooves with square edges. Cornering adhesion is a result of "U" shaped channels that run the full sidewall to sidewall of the tread pattern.
The HookWorm was engineered to optimize the entire tread pattern as a potential contact patch, analogous to a motorcycle road racing tyre. This allows traction in all high-lean situations.
