I'm working out a build for a winter/touring bike and working with bikes all the time i feel like 38c is going to be the sweet spot for me.
The thing is it seems there aren't a lot of 650b options in that width.

Compass has the Loup Loup at 333g
Schwalbe has a G One Speed in 40 that seems all but impossible to find
the G One All Around is a wholesome 420g claimed
Soma New Express seems kinda chunky
Panaracer Gravel King Smooth is 310g claimed, sounds interesting.
Pari Moto claimed 300g
Are the last two actually the same tyres?

What am I missing from my shopping list?
Anything out there like a Soma Supple Vitesse, but in 650b? Seems that would end up being the lightest since the 700 is specified as 320g

I had no idea Schwalbe is making G One Speeds in sizes other than 700x30C and 29x2.35", but I just looked on their web site and they list sizes including 35- 40- and 50-mm variants. Woohoo!

All those sizes are marked "new" and Google doesn't show so much as a press release. I would imagine they're not yet in production...it might be worth calling or emailing Schwalbe to get an ETA. A 650b 40mm G One Speed would be worth the wait, IMHO.

Schwalbe's site seems to show the wrong weights for the new tires, too. They list the 700x40 G One Speed at 480 grams, or 20 grams more than the Allround in the same width. The Allround has a much beefier tread; that can't be right. My 700x30 S-Ones (the G One Speed before it was renamed) were pretty much at the claimed 330g. An extra 150 grams for 10mm more width seems way too high.

Do you have a preference between those two?

I have the Compass ones with the extralight casing. Very fast, supple tyres.

I prefer the 302g one, but only by a small margin.
