Video: Fall Bromance
@KonaGuy77: there are trails for everything and every level in Bromont. You can ride hard all day long on a DH rig as well as take it easy on well groomed "green/blue" trails with your family and everything in between. Bromont is one of the best (and best managed) bike/ski resort in Eastern Canada.

You can get them way cheaper. Just look in the right place (hint: Germany).

You can find them for cheap if you know where to shop. Hint: Germany.

@bonkywonky: you're comparing apples and oranges, if you are talking about the Minion DHF 3C. This is a DH tire whereas the Hans Dampf is an AM tire: with 500g (1 lb+) more weight, of course it is more durable! Those two tires simply don't address the same market.

@flipfantasia: to each his own. I've been riding Nobby Nics on rocks and roots here in Quebec, as well as in Utah and Colorado and although I agree about the weak sidewalls, I still think these are very good and versatile tires. As said, Schwalbe tires are very sensitive to pressure, so your bad experience(s) might be due to incorrect inflation for what you intended to do with them. As for me, I still have to find a tire that's grippy, corners and rolls well and weights the same as the NN in tubeless ready version (and BTW, they are very easy to set up tubeless in my experience). They are very popular around here and I think that so many people can't be mistaken to the point of buying the same tire again and again, but then, "haters gonna hate". Anyway, the nice thing about democracy and free market is that we can still buy whatever tire we like. So buy whatever tire you like, I'll do the same.

@DMal: our terrain doesn't look like KT at all! KT is mostly groomed, loamy/sandy terrain, while we ride on roots and rocks (as you do). If you know Bromont (or have seen it in a video) you can see what I'm talking about.

Maybe you should learn to ride with them. I've been using NN for many years and although they can be prone to sidewall damage if not inflated at a proper pressure (Schwalbe tires performance is generally very sensitive to pressure), but they corner very well, don't wear as fast as you say (although faster than Kendas, but hey, that's the price you pay for a high-end quality tire)... and sketchy? What are you talking about? They are super grippy almost everywhere -- way much than a lot of "trail" tires I've tried.
