In German, Hans Dampf translates to “A Jack of All Trades.” The Schwalbe Hans Dampf is exactly that! Tuned for optimum control and total riding enjoyment, the tread functions with complete poise and is responsive in all conditions. The Hans Dampf comes in three compound options. The PaceStar Compound employs a fast rolling center with grippy shoulders , enabling both the speed and handling required on race day. The TrailStar Compound is as light as a freeride tire and rugged as a downhill tire; an Enduro-bred beast. The VertStar Compound features a softer compound with more Downhill capabilities. This truly is the Swiss army knives of mountain bike tires!
PaceStar - MTB Race, All Mountain Compound. Super-fast with a combination of low rolling resistance and durability. The tire shoulders were made appreciably softer to improve handling on rough terrain. Construction: Easy rolling base layer (base), Fast center (medium), Grippy shoulders (medium soft).
TrailStar - Enduro and Freeride Compound. Triple Nano compound was unsuitable performance-wise and the rolling resistance of Gooey Gluey was too high. TrailStar has substantially more grip, better damping and handling control. Nevertheless, the compound is not overly heavy, making it suitable for climbing too. Construction: Easy rolling base layer (base), Grippy center (medium soft), Extra-grippy shoulders (soft).
VertStar - Downhill and Freeride Compound. It is a further development of the Gooey Gluey compound, but now even softer with extremely good damping properties. Construction: Easy rolling base layer (base), Super-soft center (super soft), Extra-soft Shoulders (extremely soft).
