Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Schwalbe G-One Overland is pleasantly quick for a knobby tire. It feels like a modern, multi-surface take on a touring tire, made for durable performance on pavement, gravel and everything in between. It’s not a supple featherweight but a reliable workhorse up for year-round and everyday riding.

In addition to the well-received G-One RS tire, Schwalbe released a second gravel tire this year. 

The latest and seventh addition to the German tire manufacturer’s gravel line, the G-One Overland is meant for adventurers, commuters and e-bikers alike, and especially for those riders who combine asphalt, gravel and a bit of dirt all in one ride.
