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!
Compounds and Technologies
PaceStar: Extremely fast XC compound. Easy rolling base layer (base), Fast center (medium), and Grippy shoulders (medium soft).
SnakeSkin: lightweight layer of fabric to protect against sidewall cuts. Perfect for rocky terrain.
TrailStar: Enduro & Freeride compound. Easy rolling base layer (base), Grippy center (medium soft), and Extra-grippy shoulders (soft).
Super Gravity: New 4 layer carcass construction provides support and protection without adding too much weight. The whole tire (not just the sidewalls) features a layer of SnakeSkin fabric to added protection.
Very durable high end tyre. Worked greatly in various conditions including snow. Used for downhill and worked better than dedicated DH tires. Once was in XC competitions with them. From cons I would like to mention heavy weight and low rolling resistance on hard pavements like asphalt.
