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.

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.

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.

Lack of corner and braking grip,

By GrapplerX

from So Cal

Comments about Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5" Trailstar Tire:

I can see why the great reviews, this tire will hurt you if you are a hard and aggressive in the cornering and braking. I have raced for 20 years and also race a GP bikes and with this tire I have no confidence in the corning on courses I have ran on for many years. The Rocket Ron corners a lot better is in SoCal...

Great gripping front tire

By spaulr

Comments about Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5" Trailstar 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.

        Comments about Schwalbe Hans Dampf 27.5" Trailstar 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.

            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.

            I used this tire for 1 month. It was fast rolling but completely lacked traction in both braking and cornering.
            This was the worst tire I have ridden in a long time.

              These tires feel good at first, but degrade quickly. In particular the side nobbys separate from the rest of the casing, and the center tread wears quickly as compared to other all mountain tires I've used.
