Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5" Trailstar Tire

The Schwalbe Hans Dampf is the perfect all around tire. This version of the Hans Dampf features the gribby TrailStar compound. The TrailStar compound makes the Hans Dampf an excellent front tire option, for maximum control. 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.

Solid all-mountain/park wheel
Overall a very good tire and handles well in our Colorado dry over hardpack conditions. Using it for all-mountain and park riding and it has done well on the first 5 or so rides. A bit heavier than other 27.5 tires, but when you are riding downhill at Keystone or Winter Park that doesn't matter much...on longer AM rides I switch out to a lighter wheelset and tires.

PROS: Solid Handling, Easy To Install

BEST USES: Mountain Biking, Upgrade, Park Riding, All-mountain

Solid tire
Great tire! Have these on my Norco Range. Im not sure why they are not reviewed better. Soft compound allows for grip in loamy loose dirt, but the knobs keep traction in the wet stuff too. Handles sharp turns and harsh braking very well. Maybe wears out quickly on hard pack conditions is the only bad thing this tire tends to do.

PROS: Easy To Install, Attractive Design, Durable

BEST USES: Wet Conditions, Mountain Biking, Dusty Conditions

Grip galore!
Great all arround handling and cornering for hard pack, lose, rocky, sandy and really great for anything but mud. I still use them in wet weather although you should know that they will pack up and toss mud. This is due to the angled tread design however this what makes them hold the corners.

PROS: Attractive Design, Lightweight, Easy To Install, Great Grip

CONS: Not The Best Mud Tire

Good - for a short while.
True weight is 840 gms which is decent for the size/volume, but heavier than claimed. When new, this tire is awesome. The sticky compound grips like crazy. I used it as a front tire and within 3 rides the side knobs started separating from the carcass. No bueno for the price of these things.

Great gripping front tire
I bought this tire to replace my 2.25 Nobby Nic. Installed easy with compressor. First ride, I noticed that it was significantly heavier than the Nic I had on before. Since most of the rides here are up and down, I definitely noticed it on the climbs. That said, it was totally worth it on the descents. Best gripping front tire I have ever used. In fact, the rear now washes out before the front even when things start getting really dry here.

Can't comment on the wear, but it will probably last just as long as any other front I have used. I would not use this as a rear due to the Trailstar ultra soft/grippy compound.

Great front tire
This is a great all around tire. With wider rims it gives you that plus feel with a 2.35 tire. I had them on both wheels, but found that the rear wheel wore out a lot faster. I use them on the front with a WTB Trail Boss on the back, a great combination for trail and enduro riding.

Lacks durability
Love the tread. Omnidirectional, grips great. Easy to set up tubeless. 2 big issues. 1. Tread wears very fast and side knobs tear off. 2. Something with their compound that punctures don't seem to stay sealed with Stan's.
