Schwalbe Hans Dampf 29" Tire

The Hans Dampf made its debut at the Sea Otter Classic and critics raved that it set new standards in rubber. "Hans Dampf" is German for "jack of all trades", and this tire will make mincemeat of many different types of terrain, from slickrock to hardpack to loose, loamy soil. The key to Hans Dampf's versatility is strong sidewalls and grippy lugs, as well as fast Pacestar compound. Pacestar is unique in that Schwalbe combined three different rubber compounds to create a fast rolling tread center, and grippy shoulder lugs whilst maximizing tire life. Finally, Hans Dampf is tubeless ready, so just add sealant to the tire (paired with an appropriate tubeless-compatible rim) and enjoy the benefits of high puncture protection, low rolling resistance, and the ability to run lower pressures.

  • Wheel Size: 29"
  • Compound: Pacestar
  • Tubeless Ready

i finally splurged and bought this tire brand new. i have never paid this much for a tire. after todays ride i am so glad i did. i took it to the super steep DH single tracks of the verdugo's where its loose over hard pack and traction is hard to find. it stuck way better than the spechy purgatory it replaced, and other tires i have ridden on: captains, ardents, ignitors, mountain kings. i only put it on the front and was running an ardent in the rear but it blows the ardent away as far as traction so i am going to buy another one and put it on the rear as well. this tire made my riding so much more fun and safe today.

The side knobs tore on the inside very early on when using as a front tire. The tire appears to show no signs of wear other than the side knobs releasing. None of them have completely come off, but they are all torn about halfway and the tire doesn't corner confidently as it did when it was new because of this. Loved the tread pattern and initial grip.

    Comments about Schwalbe Hans Dampf 29" Tire:

    I had been looking at these tires for awhile for my xc bike but it wasn't until I rode my friends claymore with Hans Dampfs on it that I realized just how awesome these tires were. Bought 2 for my bike and have been loving them even more every time I ride. These tires roll fast even with the aggressive lugs and pattern and they corner like a dream with those side lugs. These tires are grippy as can be when you are climbing, descending, cornering or trying to push your bike to the limits of speed and traction. If you buy these you won't be sorry!!

    Comments about Schwalbe Hans Dampf 29" Tire:

    Great tire for chunk or loose over hard. I ride in Sedona and flagstaff Arizona and loose and chunk is quite commen. The round profile is very predictable in a variety of terrain and I have yet to slice a side wall. Sets up tubeless easily with a floor pump on every rim I have tried. I only use for front tire.

          I installed these on my wife's 29er. We sometimes have mud in Oregon believe it or not. Theses tires are aggressive enough to get good traction but still roll pretty good on pavement. I mounted them tubless on a tube type rim. They sealed fine and after two weeks have not lost any air. I'm using Orange sealer. Overall I really like these ties.

              This tire has performed great in the rugged shale trails that I ride. Sidewall strength is the biggest factor for me, to avoid tubless sidewall flats. So far this tire has worked great and provided tons of grip and good braking abilities. The price was incredible considering the quality of the tires. I would buy these again.

                These tires are awesome. I had put a set on my wife's 26 bike and they change her bike to a shredding machine. So I had to have these on my 29er. Grippy as heck. And roll pretty quick on hard pack. Tubless setup was super easy with these tires as well. Quick measurement after install was 2.4" which is great on a 2.35 tire since most of the time tires measure smaller than stated. If you can't go full + tire cause of frame clearance these are you best bet to get that + size feel with lower pressure running tubless.
