Sorry, but that bullshit meter is obviously broken. Your link refers to car tires needing break in for maximum performance.
From the same website, in the description for Road Attack 3...

"TractionSkin, a revolutionary new micro-rough tread surface, virtually puts an end to tire break-in. This is possible due to a new mold coating technology which eliminates the need for tire-release agents"

In the past, I've alluded to the ever changing tire technologies, I'm def old school. So their Tractionskin tech is used ONLY on their Road Attack 3, correct?

The Traction skin is on all the 2nd and 3rd generation Attack tires except for race, so Sport Attack, Road Attack, Classic Attack, Trail Attack. I think it's limited to those. Conti's among the leaders in tire development these days. They've got a graduated curing process that allows for multi compound tires. Instead of a hard compound in the center and a soft one on the edges, it's one compound cured in varying degrees so it graduates from hard to soft from center to the edges. Pretty cool.
