[LAME QUESTION] What is the real purpose of "one-side-racing-arrow-shape" tip?

Obviously little bit lame question. But anyway, what is the real purpose of "one-side-racing-arrow-shape" tip? Just Design? Or for better air flow? For accidental hitting to gate so if you hit it, tip slides around? Tell me! :D

I'll go with putting you on the right side of the gate if you hit it.

Absolutely.  No sense ruining your day (or your junk) because you're 9mm too close to the gate on a slalom turn.  eek.gif

That's a GS course, of course, but it should give you an idea.  Lots of tight turns in a slalom course, and you need to miss on the correct side of the gate.
