Ditto - TerraTrail front, TerraSpeed rear & I seem to be able to go anywhere. In fact, the combo has worked well even on the worst local 4x4/MX playground (misleadingly named "Green Lane" & truly horrible - think WW1 battlefield - but it's the only way to get between two delightful bridleways without using busy roads). No punctures either (touch wood!) despite many miles of wet roads & glass-strewn cycle tracks (tubeless of course). Haven't used the Schwalbe Ultrabites but other experience with Schwalbes hasn't been encouraging, with Pro Ones on a road bike & X-Ones on the gravel bike proving to be depressingly puncture prone, even tubeless.

This year, sorry, last year, I've been running a Terra Trail front and a Terra Speed rear setup on one pair of wheels. Great tyres, fast rolling, grippy enough for me, no punctures that I noticed. I haven't taken them into deep mud but I hate that anyway. They can be found online for a lot less than £60.
