What possible advantage would a dense tread like this on a 26x2 confer?

The manufacturer states:
"One of the important features we wanted was a tougher sidewall so we are using a double ply lay-up in the tyre carcass to stiffen up the tyre & improve impact protection. The dense tread pattern is fast rolling with a round profile that wraps bead to bead adding further protection to the sidewall."
If they're to be believed that the tyre is stronger than a regular one, and if it's suitable for a roller, I may choose it, as the roads in this part of N.Israel are still heavily pock-marked with katyusha hits from the 2006 war!
