- Hans Dampf
What makes you think its the Hans on the front making it hard work? Usually the rear is the cause of most of the rolling resistance, since it carries the majority of the weight.
For me I think the HD makes a great front tyre, yep it’s a bit draggy but on the front not that noticeable. Can’t comment on your rear NN tho.Posted 4 years agotheroadwarriorMember
Don’t find mine too draggy but thinking of re-evaluating my use of them.
I don’t like changing tyres and was hoping the HDs would be a do-it-all tyre, trouble is it felt a little out-gunned in the Alps, while it didn’t puncture all the rocks the size of baby-heads rolling around out there meant I felt could use something with a bigger carcass. Yet on UK trail centres the HD is arguably overkill..
So perhaps a set of dual ply maxxis for the Alps and something smaller/lighter/faster for the UK?Posted 4 years ago
I have recently a set of Flow Ex rims secondhand which came with a Hans Damp Trailstar front and Nobby Nic 2.35 pacestar evo rear.
The Hans Dampf is amazing grip but seems just a bit too much hard work on the climbs.
My riding is mainly the 7 stanes esp Glentress. But also local bridleways etc.
Would a pacestar Hans Dampf speed things up on the front?
Is the tyre combo possibly overkill for my riding/time of year?

I have run both Pacestar and Trailstar on the front of my 5 spot with a Smorgasbord on the rear.
I found absolutely no noticeable difference to and rolling resistance when i changed them over.
But the trailstar has amazing grip, not that the pacestar was a slouch.
I run mine at 30psi and use them from everything from bimbles round the woods to big mountain days.
i love them TBH.Posted 4 years ago
