I don't think the answer is complicated- make everything heavier and thicker.  A dirt bike tire weighs 17lbs (7700g) or something ridiculous.   2000g tire (yep- the weight sucks but it won't go flat) 650g rim with a smooth 10mm rounded edge on the top of the rim wall so you can't cut the tire. Heavy wheel/tires are cool once you get them up to speed- heavy gyro effect keeps the bike stable and they seem to maintain momentum over chop better. I wish tire companies made DH casing tires withOUT sticky rubber for the rear of my enduro bike.
