28mm Tyres for Gravel?

    Hi all. I’m looking to beef up my old endurance bike (Giant Contend) to take on a bit of lightweight gravel. The first thing I’m going to look at (and possibly the only thing) is the tyres. The rim brakes on the bike will be the limiting factor, so 28mm is the widest I can go. I’m veering towards a pair of Conti Gatorskins at the moment but if there are any only 28mm tyres out there that might offer better performance then I would appreciate any advice. Thanks!
