That is my perspective too. A 4mm ultra HD tube still has no chance against a 50mm long mesquite thorn, of which there are thousands of in my area. So I run a regular tube with RideOn sealant. No other choice unless you want to fix flats all day and not ride. On a real dirt bike we all run bibs.

The UHD tubes are way too heavy also. No upside at all for my purposes.
