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.
