I recently purchased the Schwalbe Hans Dampf tire. It is suppose to be tubeless ready, the first tire had several pin holes on the side black walls. Price point returned it as expected, and the second tire had the same problem. Price Point did offer to replace it again, but I was expecting better from price point. In my opinion they these tires have some kind of defect. I do not recommend these tires nor do I recommend price point.

Performance Compound - Apr 23, 2014

I bought the less expensive, "performance" version of this tire for the front of my 26" Epic. I ride in northern New England, which is to say I ride on a combination of roots, rocks, mud, and occasional granite slabs. Most of the time I really like this tire, but I find that the knobs don't hold as well as my old Maxxis Ardent on granite slabs and rocks in general. I'm light and I ride really low pressure (around 20 lbs), but even so the knobs tend to loose their purchase on rocks, and the tire ends up bouncing and skipping a bit. Everywhere else it performs wonderfully, and I'll bet the fancier versions are every bit as good as the reviews indicate. I'm just too tight to spend car tire money on a bike tire, and I pay the price in how they perform.

Decent all-rounder - Apr 23, 2014

These tires work fine unless I need to dig into loose rock/gravel. I went down once on them in a turn, so use more finesse now with them. They ride very light in the straights over rocks, which is very impressive. But I use a different tire on my more aggressive bikes.

Hans Dampf are my go-to tires - Apr 23, 2014

BELLINGHAM, WA

I've been running Hans Dampfs on my bikes for about 3 years now on trails that range from wet and muddy during the long winter, to loamy in the spring and fall, to dry and dusty in the summer. The Hans Dampfs are the best all-condition tires I've found. There are better dedicated mud tires, and better tires for dusty conditions, but if you live in a climate with a wide range of trail conditions throughout the year and don't have a personal mechanic to switch your tires out each ride, these are an excellent choice. The biggest complaint I hear about these tires is that the side knobs wear quickly, but I typically get about a year out of them before I think about replacing them. So while they are some of the more expensive tires out there, I've found that wear properties and grip justify the expense.

Hmmm - Apr 18, 2014

APO, AP

So i used a HD on my bike for 2 rides. The first time there wasn't much to write about i wasn't on a normal trail that i would like to judge it on. On my 2nd ride however it was a different story, I had read reviews that the snakeskin sidewalls were good protection.....within the first 5-10 of riding i sliced my sidewall and somehow got lucky i didn't slice my tube. I went on riding on my tyre down the trail after lowering my pressure. As i continued the tyre was awesome! (despite the slice) It was hooking up well with the Japan dirt i was shredding which is typically rooty and semi-damp. I am going to buy another one now in hopes i will have better luck. Hopefully this one will last longer.

New dimensions in cornering - Apr 09, 2014

5 out of 5 stars
BELLINGHAM, WA

I've run Maxxis tires for years, and this winter made the switch to the Hans Dampf both front and rear. I run them tubless, on ENVE rims. The tire has a very round profile so the transition to the side knobs when cornering is seamless. I like that there isn't a noticeable transfer from the center knobs to the side. The bike leans and rights without the resistance I'd come to expect with the High Roller/Minion combo I've had on 3 bikes. It has taken some getting used to, but the tires feel flowy, and the grip is wonderful. Almost all riding so far on these tires has been in the wet, and I've no complaints. They seem to be wearing very little since I put them on. I ride about 3 times/week. All Mountain.

Perfect All Weather Traction - Apr 02, 2014

5 out of 5 stars
ALBANY, OR

This has been an absolutely great tire for all conditions in the NW. Rolling resistance is a little high until you get a few miles on them and the edges are scrubbed in. Cornering traction and braking are terrific. You can lay these things over in a corner and the only limit is my commitment. Overall wear has been comparable to other tires with this kind of traction with the exception of the Maxxis High Roller's which seemed to wear slightly better.

Good all around tire. - Sep 26, 2013

ALAMEDA, CA

I usually run kenda nevegal but I wanted to go tubeless and to try something new. I read a lot about these before i got them and this seems to be the cheapest place to get them. So far they are a lot lighter than the nevegal a and do grip just as good. I run them at 24psi in front and 26psi in the back. The side walls are stiffer so you need to run them lower. The tread is nice and rolls around the curve of the tire so that you have good grip when you are leaning throguh turns. So far I've had the tires for a few months and the tread seems to be wearing very well.
