    Even though this sounds sarcastic, it's not: do yourself a favour and buy some tough Continental Gatorskins.

    I thought those Specialized Roubaix Pro's were rubbish tyres (my bike came with them).

    Flak jackets don't seem to get decent reviews on MTBR.

    The All-Condition Pro II on my Secteur....I got some good deep cuts (a tad worried) in the thread, that is almost down to the belt... I think I might follow some's advice on trying the Maxxis Refuse tire.

    Though when I tried the Nimbus 700x35 on my MTB (Rockhopper Comp-29er), the tires are wearing a lot better in terms of punctures (maybe it's the harder rubber compound on them), and it also has Flak Jacket.

    The Fast Trak LK tires on my Rockhopper, doesn't have Flak Jacket (doesn't really mention much in the specs)...and seems to be doing fine in punctures (luckily).

    Though I do like the CST Caballero tires on my MTB more than the Fast Trak tires...which CST is a lower-end brand of Maxxis....
