The evidence seems to be building that the RFT is more prone to punctures, from the amount of users who have reported more punctures over a short period.

I'd suggest it is because the harder rubber structure is less likely to deflect objects and debris. Having worked with tooling to stamp rubber components, it is harder to penetrate softer, less supported rubber.
