More aggressive tires for Ultimate C380+?


So the Schwalbe "Energizer" (??) tires are fine for commuting. But on weekends I like to do rail trails with some gravel, etc. Compared to the Vado 4 tires that went over gravel much better these seem to kick the rocks to the side or the wheel will jump a little. I would like to get something a little more aggressive like the Vado. Some years ago I had some MTB tires that also had a solid bead in the middle so for street riding it had good wear and noise features but the sides had a lot of grippy bits.

I was looking at the Schwalbe G-One Overland. Is that a good choice for commuting during the week and some rail trails on the weekend?

What specifically do you recommend (link to the right size for the Gazelle would be nice)

Schwalbe Marathon GT 365? I bought them as winter tires for this season - they are marketed as all-year-any-weather, but probably too aggressive for commuting on good surfaces.
