The Schwalbe G-One Bite 700c Gravel Tire is designed for truly aggressive off-road riding. Rather than making another "adventure" tire that tries to blend on- and off-road riding characteristics into one tire, the G-One Bite throws the road side of things out and focuses purely on quality traction and durability. As such, this tire only feels so-so on the road, but take it off the beaten path and the Bite's open tread design and strong outer blocks provide stability when cornering, biting into the trail for reliable grip.
Under their aggressive open tread pattern, Schwalbe's SnakeSkin anti-puncture technology keeps the sidewalls protected for unexpected impacts with trail debris. Furthermore, Schwalbe's Tubeless Easy technology – as the name implies – makes running tubeless tires easier than ever. With a quick, easy sealing process, you'll be experiencing the wonders of more comfortable, more protective riding.
- A real off-roader, this aggressive tire features an open tread pattern with strong outer blocks.
- 700x40c (40-622).
- SnakeSkin anti-puncture technology improves resistance to slashes, cuts, and punctures in the sidewall.
- Tubeless Easy technology makes installation and setup easier than ever.
- Also available in 27.5" sizes.

Much better than standard G-One's
I've used the G-One tire for a while, intermittently as I've tried other tires in between. I'm a heavier rider, so I've had a problem with tubeless and rear tire cuts (G-One and several other brands and models) on certain types of gravel. I was also never a fan of the G-One not having any real cornering traction. When this new G-One Bite came out, I figured I'd give this G-One variant a try.
I've been riding this tire for over a month now with no flats. I've got a race and several hundred miles on them. The 38's seem to have nice volume. Much better cornering traction, doesn't seem like much is lost on the speed front.. and best of all, NO TEARS! Functionally I'm giving these 5 stars, because I have no complaints. This will be my go2 tire for now.
I did give the tire a low value rating. Lets face it, these are great but when bicycle tires cost almost as much car tires thats a bit of a stretch. So yea, they are pricey. But... I'd rather spend up on tires than spend on CO2 and tubes. Worse yet, have to blow $100 on an Uber when I'm 50 miles in the middle of no-mans land and need an emergency lift home because I destroyed another rear tire and can't patch it.
