Description

A great tyre just became even better. With a more aggressive tread, wider knobs and larger, reinforced side knobs, Schwalbe's engineers paid close attention to every detail on the Hans Dampf 2 to make it even more capable than before. 

  • ADDIX SOFT (orange): With great damping and powerful grip, the Addix Soft Compound is well suited to Enduro and Downhill racing, as well as all-mountain and trail riding. Provides decreased rolling resistance and greater durability than the previous Trailstar compound
  • SNAKESKIN: The Snakeskin fabric helps to prevent sidewall cuts and helps to provide an easy tubeless conversion
  • TLE: Tubeless Easy
2.6" only recommended on rims 30mm or wider.
2.8" only recommended on 35mm rims or wider.

A good tyre, but not for rocks.

by

A great general trail riding tyre but not for rocky terrain. I used it on the rear of an e-bike, in place of a Maxxis Minnion DHR and it rolled faster and offered more consistent grip throughout the lean angles. Substantially lighter too. However, it does not have enough rubber covering the threads of the sidewalls and before long the rocks had rubbed through the rubber and cut enough of the tyres casing to deflate the tyre, rendering it useless for a tubeless setup, though still rideable with a tube. This happened in less than 200km of general trails with sections of somewhat rocky terrain.
Tyre wear was higher than most too, but they do grip well across a good variety of surfaces.

Good for rear at Stromlo - trying to get an insert in was quite difficult

by -

Got this after a failed Maxxis Agressor DD tread alignment issue. Glad I did as the Super Gravity casing is excellent and I think better than Maxxis DD in terms of critical rim protection. Nice and quick, quicker than an Aggressor and good for Canberra dry trails. Addix soft tread is holding up very well and will see how it goes at Thredbo in the next weeks. Pity they did not have a 2.4 (only 2.35) Older Schwalbe used to blow up a bit wider but current gen is bang on specced width. Pleased with this tyre.

Almost gave up the will to live after breaking four tyre levers and my spirit getting an insert into the new tyre onto a Hunt Endurowide V2 rim. Spent a long time at it... Left it a few weeks and tried again, breaking two levers but finally getting it into tyre. ALl good now.

Great Tyres

by

Awesome tyres, I have the 29x2.6 on my Siskiu T8 and have been really impressed with them, bought a 24" pair for my sons bike, plenty of grip!

Great Trail Tyre

by

Paired this tyre with a Magic Mary up front, both in the soft compound The HD works great where I ride where the trail changes from soft loam, hard clay/rock to leaf litter with plenty of roots mixed in. This tyre feels confident and predictable in my opinion which I like as I prefer staying right side up !

Good rear tyre in Super Gravity version

by

I run this on the rear with a Magic Mary up front for Enduro duties. The Super Gravity version is a must and gives great confidence with no tyre squirm and for puncture protection. Would give 5 stars if there was a Speed Grip (blue) version as the Soft (orange) can drag a bit on the rear and also wears quicker.

Aggressive all rounder

by

Really enjoying this tyre, used to run the old Hans Dampf and this one is a solid upgrade.

Maintains the superb predictability of the older model with plenty of transition knobs, but being far chunkier and softer offers definitively more traction and confidence. Doesn't roll quite as well as a result but overall it is a much better tyre.

Great option for to go for a chunky, grippy tyre that is great for aggressive trail riding without having to go the whole hog for a Magic Mary.
