toughest fast tire I've ever ridden

I've ridden for many years but I've never ridden anywhere where the roads are as littered with glass, sharp rocks, and goat head thorns as here in Utah. So far, the only tire I trust on the roads around here is the Schwalbe Ultremo DD, especially when my rides are as likely to include a 60mph downhill as not.

Couple them with a good latex tube and it's the best flat prevention you'll get without filling your tire full of some sort of heavy flat-proofing goop.
