Are Open Pros tough enough???

Bike: Surly Cross Check 9 speed double
Tires: Scwhalbe Marathon Supreme 700c x 32
Me: 185 lbs

Ride: Michigan Road (tons of potholes), MUP (cracked, broken, washboard, holes,) occasional gravel and hardpack. I want to be able to jump the occasional curb!

Seems like Open Pro/Ultegra is not meant for this much abuse. Is Velocity Dyad a better choice? The dyad is a bit wider than I was shooting for, and is much harder to find.
