Take a bite out of the trail.
Not just another adventure tire, the G-One Bite is designed for aggressive off-road riding. It may feel blocky on the road, but once you cut your asphalt-training wheels free and embrace the glory of gravel, dirt, and sand, you'll see the true strength of the G-One Bite. Featuring Schwalbe's TriStar rubber compound, the G-One combines traction, efficiency, and comfort, and then ramps it up to 11 with the aggressive open tread pattern. Large shoulder blocks take a bite out of the trail for rock-solid cornering, even in the loosest terrain.
Under the grippy cover of the G-One Bite, Schwalbe's SnakeSkin anti-puncture technology adds much-needed sidewall protection against slashes, cuts, tears, or punctures. Adding in further puncture resistance and – let's be honest – peace of mind, Schwalbe's Tubeless Easy technology makes going tubeless easier than ever. Without tubes, you can run a lower tire pressure which gives you two major benefits: more comfort, and natural puncture resistance.

This is a great all around tire, holds the wet trails well while still offering low rolling resistance on pavement.
Very tight and difficult to initially get on rim, so beware of that challenge; but once on holds great
This is the first tubeless tire I have ever used and I was hesitant after reading of all the issues others had getting a tubeless tire to seat. I also was worried about the mess. When Schwalbe labels this tire as Tubeless Easy they are not kidding. Mounting the tires was no more difficult than a regular clincher, no struggle at all. I was able to pump up this tire tubeless with a regular Silca floor pump. I installed the sealant through the valve stem with no mess. No sealant leaked from the bead and the tire is holding air.
I like the G-one bite line of gravel tires because they have extra volume for rougher rides and are supple and puncture resistant. Most gravel I don't feel the need for the extra volume but some courses like BWR NC it is very helpful. I used 42mm this year, but bought these 50mm this year because I think it will help with the gnarly sections that really slowed me down.
I run a 45mm as the back tire on my Moots Routt 45. Very happy with the setup, which includes a 50mm Ultra Bite front tire. Definitely an off-road package. Takes more watts on pavement than the Schwalbe AllArounds for sure. But plush ride on moderate gravel. Haven't tested it in burlier stuff yet.
I've been using Schwalbe tires for some time now. They are true to size and install easily both with tubes and tubeless, and wear well. The gravel roads I ride are generally very hard packed well traveled roads so I don't need a tire that's meant for loose stone. This tire rolls well on pavement and gravel.
I use this tire mostly for crushed gravel and pavement. It handles very well and i certainly trust the tire with cornering. However, I have had to replace them more often than i expected as i have cut them a few times while running tubeless. But.... Overall i still like them and keep buying them
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.
I was a fan of the original G-One. This is a little lighter and rides like a bigger tire. I have done 50 miles on a road ride, and tons of Fruita singletrack in these. I love them.
