Ok so they are fractionally heavier "only 20g per wheel" With all the talk of marginal gains that is more serious, not to mention rotating weight. I would say that is why they are not used in more racing situations. I didn't quite understand the square tyre profile bit being more aerodynamic either, I can't say I've ever seen a square aeroplane or bird (yet)!
