Mr Jakeman I have bought a few of these over the years as they are a great all round tyre. fairly easy to seal for tubeless and as tough as nails.
Mr Tibbits Great rear tyre, perfect for a range of trails and rolls pretty well for its size.
Mr Jagger Brilliant tyre, and great service from Merlin - as always! Speedy delivery and well packaged. Can't ask for more than that really!
Mr Merlin Shani Excellent tire with great grip. Very recommended
Mr Slater Seam like a great tyre. I haven't been able to get many rides in, but they have performed well in wet and slippery conditions; time will tell if they are better than the WTB Vigilantes they replace, definitely better than the Minions on a bike I've been testing recently. A pain to get on my WTB rims, but once on, all was good. Great service from Merlin again, thank you.
Mrs Hart Love these tyres. Absolutely bomb-proof on the Grade 4+ trails in Nelson, NZ.
Mr Screen Love the super addix casing for the rear. Feels very tough.
Thomas Seem to be good so far, not too draggy. Not great it super slippery woods, but what is? Went up tubeless on a 30mm rim with a track pump easily.
Paul Have used these tyres for years and they keep getting better. Trusted an tough. Never had a puncture or burped tyre in years.
Mr Osborne Bought as a spare past ones have all performed well
Mr Ellis Great tyres, easily to set up tubeless too.
Mr Martin Great value, brilliant all round tyre
Mr Waters Temped on buying a few of these at £21.50 as you can't go wrong for the price. Very grippy and keeps everything in line on the downhill. No tank slappers with this one! Used this as a rear tyre with Schwable Magic Mary up front. Very competitively priced and delivery was quick. A+++++
Gill Awesome tyre , good value for money, super quick service and well packaged
Mr Ellis These tyres are so good. Massive grip but not too sloggy on the faster sections and climbing. So good I've now had to upgrade my wife's bike too.
Robin Good rear tyre, quite drifty with reasonable balance of rolling against grip
LM Good price, rolls well.
Mr Cardwell Great tyre ,got load of grip in my local trail , can't wait to try in sherwood pines , will buy again .
Mr Hughes Easy to fit and seal tubeless. Fast rolling and grippy, great combo with a Magic Mary on the front
Razvan Very good tires - fast rolling with a lot of confidence. The price was especially good for what you get. Bargain.
morgan Very fast delivery and the product is spot on. One of the best tyres on the market!
David T I bought this as a rear tyre to replace a 3-ply Maxxis DHR which had suffered a lot of cuts from sharp stones. The Hans Dampf 4-ply is heavy, 1040 gms compared to about 750, but I've effectively gone up a grade in strength. Sidewalls seem very stiff, and in riding I can't say I notice the weight, but I do feel safe to run a lower pressure now. Traction uphill on wet rock is better than expected. Overall I'm reassured I've got a stronger tyre that's just as grippy as before, and that might even roll a bit better.
Mr Bryan This tyre I found performed well on both tarmac and off road conditions, providing great grip on the rear even on muddy trails. Paired with the magic Mary up front it has excellent mud clearing abilities with high rolling resistance for peddling on the road. Great tyre I found with good cornering grip also.
cameron Solid tyre. Front and rear this works as a good all-rounder. Plugs up easily in sticky mud.
Mr Hilton Good tough hard wearing tyre on and off road.
Mr spickett Herculean effort required to get on the rim, damaged at least one inner tube doing so.. Maiden voyage, Eastern Fells, Lakes. Outstanding bit of kit
S P W Very confidence inspiring and fast rolling rear tyre at a great price. Teamed up perfectly with a Magic Mary front.
Gary 2nd hans dampf tyre I have purchased, great as a front tyre on short travel trail bike. Can be run at low pressure for grip and comfort, schwalbe tyres roll quicker than the competition and have good durability
Mr Lindsey Probably a fantastic tyre. Couldn't get it on my Stans rims at home without better leverage and/or high pressure pump (so bought Maxxis which fitted easily). 27.5 x 2.35 weighs more than 1kg but this is a serious looking tyre. I suggest you check rim compatibility but otherwise five stars.
Mr Folu Fantastic tyre, grip well and would buy again
Mr McCreadie Solid tyre for rear. Ben cathro recommended!
Ian Great rear tyre for hardtail - adds a bit on damping, excellent traction & grip
HashtagDeano I wanted a tyre that I could pair with my Magic Mary (Soft - orange) up front in the winter and pair with my Rock Razor (SpeedGrip - blue) on the rear. The Hans Dampf II is perfect! Recommended. And a bargain price from Merlin with outstanding service as usual.
Richard Very easy to fit on rim and set up as tubeless - went on rim with satisfying pop and stayed properly inflated overnight. Sides feel stiffer than previous tyres (not Schwalbe) so have dropped some pressure from the usual 18/21 to 17/19. Seems to ride well and grip well. Pleased with the tyre and works well both front and rear - but conditions haven't been overly mixed yet, but seem fine in slightly damp conditions. Pleased with the tyre.
Mr Ron best back tire - great grip, and good rim protection
Andrew Totally awesome tyres. They have completely transformed how my bike rides.
Mr Leeming Thick sidewalls for a thiccc boy. grippy but fast rolling. perfect with the magic mary up front. Great price by merlin!
Mr Jones Great rolling tyre and has plenty of grip. The only problem I had was setting it up as a tubeless tyre as the side walls kept folding in making it hard to inflate.
Mr Hibble Bought one for my bike, love it, so had to buy another for the sons bike brilliant back tyre
dylan Feels like a good strong tyre that'll last ,bit tricky to put on rim
Mr Leighton Personally I find the HD to be a faster rolling tyre than the equivalent Maxxis , great corner traction together with a fast clearing tread.
Mr Reynolds Great tyre for punture protection, hard wearing and can run lower pressures if tubeless.
JTM Took a while to get the tyre seated properly on the rim, part of the problem when tyres come fully folded. However, tyre is on the rear of my Norco, set up tubeless and running at 22psi, this was a replacement for a Nobby Nick that got badly damaged picking up an old piece of rusty fence wire. First impressions are very good, ran it over a mix of hard pack, single track, not overly muddy woods, and a bit of tarmac today, lots of traction and still pretty fast rolling. Like the profile just need to see how it wears now. But I am a fan of Schwalbe tyres anyway.
Mr simone Ottimo copertone da enduro
Tony A These tyres are excellent! Used them on the front of the bike and found the the grip is now even better. Great Value for money!!
Michael I use as a front tyre on my Scott scale. Perfect on hard pack and loam. The extra grip and volume allow me to ride a lot more aggressively.
Mr Bennett Great tires, excellent grip in all conditions.
Keith. Works for me. Only tested in dry conditions on the rear so far but happy with the grip.
Warren Surprisingly easy to install tubeless and feel great so far (restricted riding due to corona but felt good on local trails)
Mr GOODALL Good tyre, fast enough yet grippy.
