You have only a few tyre choices for your rigid fork bike; a little less pressure in the existing tyres, or fatter/taller tyres with more air volume, but less pressure in them, if your forks and frame clearance will take them.
A 'trekking' type tyre might help but everything is a compromise between speed, weight, acceleration, puncture avoidance, and rolling resistance. Choose any two.
I have Continental Contact Sports on my similar bike, the ride is bearable, fast enough, and not too harsh. I run at 65 PSI.
Others fit Cyclocross tyres, or heavier 'touring' tyres like Schwalbe Marathons.
