The Hans Dampf is truly the jack of all trades with aggressive knobs for traction in all conditions that don't sacrifice speed.
Schwalbe has equipped the tread with a staggered block pattern which provides progressive traction at all riding lean angles. 2.35 Inch width provides good volume for its weight for disciplines from cross country to all-mountain and freeride.
This version of the Hans Dampf features the TrailStar Triple rubber compound. This proprietary design employs a supple base layer for a lively ride, a medium density center for fast rolling and longer life and a medium soft shoulder compound for improved grip. Tubeless ready for low pressures and extreme grip without pinch flats when using a tubeless or tubeless converted rim and sealant. Snakeskin sidewall prevents sidewall cuts and helps support the tire when running tubeless.
The Hans Dampf Evo features a strong and supple 67 TPI casing. Color: Black. Size: 26 x 2.35 Inch (60-559 ISO). Folding bead. Weight: 765 grams.

A lot to like here.
These are terrific tires in most ways. The only reason I gave 4 stars is because they are a bit heavy and pricey. However in fairness to Schwalbe you can only make a wide big knobby tire so light. They have a large air volume so the ride is nice & supple. The grip is outstanding. I rode this weekend on lot's of dropped leaves (brown ice, Florida) and these baby's really held and caught after breaking a slide. To soon to comment on wear. At this point I would definately purchase again.
