UHD's aren't worth the downsides in my opinon for your application. If you were running a desert race of sort then okay, "might" save you that pinch flat. Heavy, you can feel the difference. Heat. And moderate mounting difficulty. The chaffing between the tube and the lining of the tire isn't only the tube taking a beating,, but also the inside of the tire. I've dismounted tires that had UHD's and the tube was fused to the tire or there was balls of rubber the size of pencil erasers inside.

Good quality Michelin or Pirelli tubes will suffice. They are thicker than the cheapo off the shelf tubes that most bike shops carry.
