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.
- 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 650b 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.
