Seriously though, is being rather heavier than most cyclists going to

greater contact area and more deformation of the casing perhaps so
perhaps more likely to pick something up. With tyres at a
proportionately higher pressure to produce a similar contact area they
may be more prone to cuts because the casing is under greater tension,
but less prone to punctures because reduced deformation around a spike
means it's less likely to dig in. Or something.
