The Perfect Bite
The Schwalbe G-One Bite Super Ground 27.5" (650b) Gravel Tire is designed for truly aggressive off-road riding.
Rather than making another adventure tire that tries to blend mixed-surface characteristics into one tire, the G-One Bite shifts the focus to quality off-road traction and durability.
White the G-One Bite performs fine on the pavement, take it off the beaten path and it really shines. Its open tread design and strong outer blocks provide stability when cornering, digging into the trail for reliable grip, while adequate spaces between the knobs helps shed trail debris.
If your epic routes feature more dirt than tarmac, the G-One Bite is the tire to help you keep shreddy and rubber-side-down. Like to hit the trails on your drop bar bike? This tire is for you.
Schwalbe's proven SnakeSkin construction has been further improved—a light and flexible fabric layer makes the tire cut-proof, both on the tire sidewalls and under the tread.
Low weight with good puncture protection allows for a wide range of technical applications.
The superground construction is perfectly suited for off-road-centric riding.
- Tubeless Easy technology makes installation and setup easier than ever
- Features Addix Speedgrip, Schwalbe's universal compound, which has the widest range of use
- Super Ground construction keeps weight low and the tire strong
- Also available in 700c sizes.

Bought these because they had better side wall projection than the All Arounds.
According to Gran Fondo Magazine, they roll faster than the All Arounds. This is likely true, but as a result they have less flat protection on the tread.
Love the more aggressive tread. I went with 2.1 in the 650b, so I also love the larger width. Worked pretty good in a few inches of snow, even climbing close to 20% hills.
Unfortunately they were a few mm's too wide for the my chain stays (Giant Revolt) and had to replace the rear with something narrower, even though I trimmed the knobs off the sides.
My buddy has a TCX and is able to run the 700c 50mm version without any rubbing.
I can fit fenders (the Revolt Fenders) on mine.
Only cons is the tread strength. I've punctured the front about 6-10x's. Haven't had to use a plug yet, but have had to add air a dozen times in a single ride on some really rocky terrain.
If you looking to bomb down really rough rocks, these might not be the right tire.
Could be I didn't have the pressure correct for the terrain, and these are gravel tires, not mnt bike tires, so still going with a 5 star.
After, 3,700 miles on the Great Divide, i would recommend the Allaround over the Bite for better durability and less likely to flat in thorn country, i.e., New Mexico.
