I actually am currently running Rene Herse (Compass) Snoqualmie Pass 44s on my gravel bike and absolutely love them. Really, really fast and compliant. They are definitely thin walled, though. It's a risk I'm willing to accept for that incredible ride.
They look really nice, though I can't seem to find any places in the UK that stock them so accessibility might be an issue :/

Yeah I concidered these along with the Schwalbe All Round 38c. They look fairly slick. Have you had much experience with either of these?

The Simworks Volummy 700x38 is a pretty robust filetread.
I am looking to carry on using my 700c Fulcrum CX rims but with tyre width the sky is the limit really. I'm looking at anything between 38-45mm widths.

I can't seem to find those tyres in the UK either. It's annoying that I read through reviews for tyres I think I would like and then look online to find limited availability on them :/ I was almost sold on getting the Terreno Zeros but I could only find them for 650b on Wiggle.
