They have a layer of Vectran-based fabric under the tread rubber. Most performance-oriented road tires have something similar. They're usually pretty marginal; the marketing guys like to say that the tires have a puncture-protection strip that adds no weight or rolling resistance, but those super-thin strips usually don't do much to protect against punctures either.
