Don't know which G-One's you're going to run but the G-One Speed TLE tires are REALLY damned fast.  I've got the 29x2.3 on my commuter/bikepacker and it feels like it's just pulling me along.  They've also withstood some light gravel and singletrack.  I'm running the 38mm Maxxis Rambler on my Crux atm and it's decently fast and grippy.  Surprisingly tough as well.  I rode it for the Wild Horse 76-mile gravel ride, which featured a ton of short, sharp rocks, deep sand, and fast, lumpy dirt road, and never got a flat, even as a LOT of other people had to stop by the road.

Pynchonite thanks for that info. I did look up the Wild Horse 76 miler in Utah. That looks like a cool ride. Were you able to catch the Cash Rabbit before Hastings Pass @ mile 15 and be able to say Give me 5($5) and have him peel off a $5 bill for you? I read that he had a 5 minute head start but wasn't riding that fast. You know kind of like the buddy that hasn't been riding all season and then blows your socks off during a ride.

Had way too much of a head start on me - I straight up missed the start and ended up chasing through the entire bunch.  Paid for it big time later in the day.

I run Donnelly Strada USH in 32mm for mixed conditions with a lot of pavement and really like them. But as many already pointed out in this thread, there are a lot of good options.

The Strada USH rolls really well on the pavement and can hold its own in the dirt.

I second Clement/Donnelly STRADA USH in 32c.

I was able to mount my "non-tubeless" 32c USH tubeless to my Pacenti SL25 rims without a problem and did a 60mi shakedown group ride the next day. They were fast and easy enough to keep up with the group and even taking part in some sprint contests and "race to the top" sections.

However, I did have a puncture that came by of a 1"x.5" piece of metal shrapnel that was as sharp as a razor blade that had to pulled out with pliers. I wasn't going to screw with patches on the road side so I did have to concede to a tube since it was too wide for a bacon strip as well.

The tires roll along smooth, fast and supple, and actually provide decent confidence in the sand as I am primarily a MTB/Gravel guy with a propensity to play with the bike in the roadside dirt while the 23c slick guys are confined to the tarmac. I actually like the tires a great deal. My normal tires are 40c Clement MSOs non-tubeless setup tubeless for a couple years now with zero problems even off road on some semi-technical singletrack....again playing around 😋
