I'm contemplating changing tires on my trail bike (Trek 26er) and currently looking at the above in the ADDIX Blue version for the rear initially, and possibly the ADDIX Orange for the front when the time comes

Has anyone tried these on a 26er trail bike ?

My Mega came with the older style Hans Dampf on the rear, and I couldn't get it off quick enough after trying my hardest to control the rear on winter muddy descents and having a few "brown" moments Shocked .. but that was on a 160mm AM bike, which just didn't work in my opinion Confused

My Trek is used for everything from road miles between tracks, to techy single track, so I'd like to give the HD's another go as I think they'd work well on this bike and its main usage Smile

Any thoughts welcome Wink

I used a Hans Dampf Evo on the front of my 26" Remedy for just under a year (including throughout winter) and it was OK, better in the dry than mud. Paired it with a NN on the back, for faster running on road sections.

Now running a Magic Mary up front on the newish 650b bike, so looking forward to its upcoming winter test.

No idea about the ADDIX range though apart from them being fairly pricey!

Cheers mate, yeah I have a "Mary" on the Mega which is a 650b and a Dirty Dan on the back Twisted Evil .. high rolling resistance but both have incredible grip for winter/mud/ruts etc etc

I know the general rule of thumb always seemed to be to forget the HD for the front as it just didn't work, but the new ADDIX compounds may change that !? .. time will tell I guess ... and yeah, they are ridiculously expensive really Confused but Schwalbe are claiming they will last a lot longer (and with x3 bikes, they'll probably last me forever Laughing )

Could be a good purchase then, certainly worth a try and if they last a decent length of time they are probably worth the extra cash. Let us know how you rate them if you go ahead and try them out.

If you are still undecided about buying them, theres a decent review now on Singletrack:

Cheers pal, I'll have a look at that later Wink

there's loads of life left in my current tires TBH, and they are puncture resistant, but there in lies the problem .. they are REDICULOUSLY heavy Confused and the HD's are nice and light, though the price id putting me off a little if I'm honest Shocked

What to do ...... Confused

I use the Mary/Dampf combo on my Trek Fuel 29er and it's great.
