The Schwalbe Hans Dampf is the perfect all around tire. This version of the Hans Dampf features the fast rolling PaceStar compound, which is ideal for the rear wheel. Bike Magazine states the Schwalbe Hans Damf is “The quintessential all- arounder: competent anywhere, any season.” The light and robust SnakeSkin sidewall is resistant to tearing and is tubeless ready.
This is one of the best tires I have ever used as a front tire. I ride a very wide variety of terrain and as a front tire, this tire does it all very well. Transitions from side to side are seamless with consistent grip at all bank angles. It is an expensive tire however, which is another reason why I only use it as a front.
I used these to replace my third set of worn HR-2's. The main reason I tried these was they are allegedly lighter (which they seem to be). So far, have had them on about 40 miles of mixed ST (DH, climbing, rocks, wet dirt and tacky dirt) conditions and once I had the pressure dialed in.....they are as grippy as the HR 2's. Note, that I have not tried them on dry pack yet...nor do I have enough rides on them to determine if they'll last long. However, so far = pretty good.
