Schwalbe Hans Dampf 29" Tire

Schwalbe Hans Dampf 29” Tire

As a jack-of-all-trades, the Hans Dampf is fine tuned to provide control and comfort. The grippy TrailStar compound option provides traction and control when cornering, making it an ideal front tire option, while the PaceStar option offers a lower rolling resistance for more speed, making it perfect for the rear wheel. Both tire options employ the light and robust SnakeSkin sidewall that’s resistant to tearing, easy to fit and tubeless ready. Pair the two together and you’ve got a quintessential do-all, go-anywhere trail arrangement.

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.

  • Intended Use: Gravity/ Enduro Riding
  • PSI: 23-50

Traction GALORE
One of the salesmen at the LBS said that these are by far the best traction tires he's ever ridden so I had to give them a try. WOW Was he not even kidding. They were also super easy to set up tubeless. I ride mainly in loose over hardpack conditions and they just stick like crazy. I have read other reviews stating that the side knobs tear off but I have not seen this so far. The terrain I ride is very rocky and sandy so it's pretty tough on tires. I went with the snakeskin sidewalls for this very reason. Light race tires don't survive in this stuff... I currently have them on my single speed that I ride 2-3 times per week but I will definitely buy more to put on my geared bikes. I expect these to last at least 1000 miles if not more. Over 100 miles and ticking...

Trailstar Snakeskin....Great Tire
Really good tire for my type of riding, all-mountain. Plenty of big and grippy knobs to bite the loose and rocky trails. I like it, mostly, because it is wide for a 2.35, almost the same width as Maxxis Minion DHF 2.5. I'm using it as my front tire only since the knobs wears out fast as a rear. And always fast delivery from Jenson.

I primarily ride in a watershed, and with the extremely wet mid-atlantic spring, the trail conditions have been damp and slick. I was constantly having traction issues with my Nobby Nics (even a Dampf front and Nic rear combo) on the wet leaves, and roots. I switched over to the Dampfs (front and rear), and I have been extremely pleased. Definitely have noticed some rolling resistance over the Nics, but what it lacks in weight savings, it definitely makes up in traction and confidence. I have a Pace Star compound on the rear, and Trail Star compound on the front. One my Industry Nine Trail S wheelset (24mm internal) the width is closer to 3.5 inches from lug to lug. I did have some issues getting the Pace Star rear tire to seat on the bead tubelessly. I put a tube in it and pumped it up to 60 PSI. I let it sit with the tube for 24 hours and attempted the tubeless set up once again — it worked perfectly on the first attempt after the tube trick.

Plastic isntead of rubber?
I tried these due to cost, $16/tire and only used them for a couple rides. Felt harsh and with very poor grip on rocks and roots. The quality of the rubber is more plastic like then soft grippy rubber.

Why is it that the side of the snakeskin tire looks different from that as shown in Schwalbe official website? The side of the tire as shown here looks smooth, whereas in manufacturer's website it resembles a snakeskin?
Cris on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The ones I got are all snake skinny not smooth like the picture.
