Really good All Mountain tire
These tires came on a new bike purchase I got about a year ago. I run Kenda Excavators on my other bike, a hardtail XC/All mountain bike, and was fairly satisfied with that tire but these Schwalbe Hans Dampf tires are much better. They grip really well on climbs and in turns. On the soft stuff (sand) they give you a chance to avoid washing out.

This was a replacement for the back tire that was showing signs of wear. The front looks pretty good still but when that starts to show too much wear, I won't hesitate to replace that with another Hans Dampf either.

Also, these tires really seem to resist thorns. I run both Slime Tubes and StopFlat tape because I don't like dealing with flats but noticed that I hardly ever have to pull out any thorns with these tires. My other tires don't get flats because of the setup I run, but I still have to pull plenty of thorns out of them. That's not the case with these.

The only negative I can really say about them is they are pricey and a little heavy, but performance wise, they are top notch.

PROS: Attractive Design, Durable

CONS: Heavy

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Upgrade

Great tire!
Delivery was VERY difficult to say the least. Jenson required someone over 21 to be home and sign for the package (1 tire and Chain Lube) which is difficult when both people in the family work. UPS was unable to hold the package as they stated the Sender requested this option NOT be available. I ended up having to pay $5 and get it sent to a local UPS location where I could then pick it up. So much for the "Free Shipping" This is NOT good customer service at all and has definitely stopped me from ordering from Jenson again.

Amazing tires
These tires are the benchmark in the AM category for their excellent grip, light weight, and amazing cornering performance. When at the limit of traction the tires progressively slide making them easy to control. I like these more than the Minnion DHF for AM riding.

PROS: Excellent Grip, Tough and light, Low Rolling Resistance

BEST USES: Extreme XC, AM light freeride

Great Tire
Bought these tires to replace my Continental Mountain King II. These are so much better for the trials I ride here in Orange County, CA area. They hook up nice, and don't seem to be showing signs on wear, even after beating them up on the San Juan, Car Wreck and Rock It Trails. Love these tires. Glad I made the switch!

PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Lightweight, Durable

Dependable all mountain grip
Used this tire both front and rear for all mountain riding. Found it provides a great balance between grip and rolling resistance. Nice large volume, not terribly heavy and relatively inexpensive.

PROS: Relatively Inexpensive, Good Traction, Attractive Design, Durable

Highly recommended so had to give it a try
These were highly recommended by a friend that has been using them regularly. His selling point were their softness. Only used it once and so far I like it. The price was awesome so why not try it. No cons yet, only time will tell.

PROS: Attractive Design
