Interesting that you find the Maxxis WT Max Terra more comfortable than the Schwalbe. If by comfortable you mean "cushion" or "damping quality" I've had the opposite experience. I've swapped back and forth between the DHF/DHR/Rekon and MM/NN and find the Schwalbe tires to have a lovely supple and damped ride quality. They make my hardtail silky smooth and give back just the right amount of energy to assist in those movements that require a bit of pop of momentum, I really dig them. The Maxxis are not far off but definitely have a narrower pressure range where their sweet spot is achieved and then the ride is still a little harsher and bouncier. I have not tried the Hans.
