Not realy classified anywhere as a gravel tire, nor spoken about in that fashion, but did anyone try the thing yet on a gravel bike?

While obviously this one wont get you trough the mud in bad conditions, It probalby does the road and easy gravel part very well, which is what lots of people actualy run tires for.

It ticks most of the boxes
being TL
quite resistant against punctures and drops
being fairly squishy
and having very low rolling resistance as of https://www.bicyclerollingresistance.com/tour-reviews/schwalbe-marathon-almotion-2016

weight is a "bit" off, but this would be more on the side of the puncture safe commuter and long distance traveler.

So did someone gave this "trecking" tyre in a "gravel" bike a spin yet?

I used tubed ones on my commuter and use 26" ones currently on my cargo bike.  They're definitely fast and roll forever.  They're not very squishy and boy are they heavy.  You can feel it on the climb and getting up to speed, but once you're going they just roll and roll.

 

I haven't used them on gravel.

so I should not hope for agile experience, nor for a comfortable ride despite the volume is what you say?
Actualy when I first checked the almotion, some site quoted the weight at 500g for 40-622. Now what I find is more like 600. That'd be quite a brick...

Yeah they're overkill unless you're in the middle of South America.  Just get Resolutes and call it a day

Hows your experience with the Resoultes - and what direct comparissons to other tyres that you tested can write about?
The Resolutes is very attractive, from the looks and the stats of rolling resistance and weight, I do fear punctures though...

I've used a few compasses, soma supple vitesses, Clement mso, gravel king sk and slick, challenge gravel grinder, and maybe others.  My Resolutes probably roll better than GK slicks but not as good as Compasses.  They hold air better and are fast on road and off.  No punctures in 500 miles so far.  It all depends on the type of gravel you ride.

thx, learned a lot of stuff quick. I already own the pair of Almotions but can make use of them on another bike where they will fit better. Glad I spared me the time of setting them up tubeless just to be disappointed. I'm now quite certain to go either try the Resolutes or G-One(bite/allround).

How does the Resolute feel like on road? I do not have experience with knobby tires at a lot...schwalbe smart sam was a bit weird with pavement.

They feel fine.  They're fast.  I posted towards the bottom of this thread https://ridinggravel.forumchitchat.com/post/how-much-slower-are-gravel-tires-10185271?pid=1309252542

I've used them on multi-thousand km tours. My preferred touring tyre.

Really fast tyres:
