Gum Sidewall tires in ?

Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Gum Sidewall tires in ?

2017 Diverge Comp Carbon CEN.
Looking to replace the stock tires with a good all around durable road tire w/gum sidewalls in 700x28.
Any suggestions?

If you're able to go 30 instead of 28, you might consider the WTB Exposure 30c. They are tubeless ready and gum walls (genuinely not sure why you would care about that). As near as I can tell (quick Google), they don't come in 28 width.

The WTB 30 gumwalls came on my Cannondale Synapse SE 105 alloy. I am still getting used to the bike (less than 500 miles on it), so all I can really say so far about the tires is that I don't hate them. Today I rode a half century, and I pushed the tires in curves harder than my previous rides. They feel good so far.

I checked bicyclerollingresistance.com and unfortunately I don't see them tested.
