A bit like an added extra to the suspension, but not in a way that feels anything like suspension. Not squidgy or wallowy.
I've used Pilot Power 2CT's the last 8 years or so for that very reason. The carcass and ride-ability of the tyre is/was unrivalled on any other tyre i tried. It looks as though they have now managed to blend the Power range with the Road range and give a perks of each.
I never used the Road range before as i never heard they were that good in the dry if/when you were pushing on.
