Who the heck is Hans Dampf?

Schwalbe brings its true, all-mountain gun, the Hans Dampf, to the wagon-wheel crowd. The Hans Dampf 29-inch tire is bristling with the same aggressive, trail-bike-ready lugs that its little brother, the 27-inch tire, wears. This one, however, is for the big-wheel crowd.

Like the 27.5 version, the Hans Dampf 29 features large, widely spaced lugs that provide exceptional grip on both loose and firm terrain. Robust sidewall reinforcement resists pinch flats and deflection, so you can keep your mind on the trail ahead. The casing is Schwalbe’s 67tpi and features a tough three-ply layer under the tread, so while flats are still possible, they’re a lot less likely than with a standard 29er tire.

Good quality, volume and traction.

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Using this tire out front on both fs and ss at 22psi on AZ granite and sharp rock. No punctures or tears. Great tire but costly. The tire life seems to justify after buying bargain for a time and seeing perf and longevity.

Lots of Grip, Relatively Light for Size

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I switched to a Hans Dampf front tire in the summer when our trails started to wash out for additional grip. Its soft compound and big burly knobs combined with a nice 2.35 volume gives it plenty of predictable grip. At 830 grams its not a light tire by any means, but significantly lighter than other 29er trail tires in its class. One downside of the softer compound means that like most Schwalbes these wear down faster than a lot of other tires, but personally I consider it a fair tradeoff for the excellent performance i get out of them.
