    Picking my RC 520 Gravel up this weekend. Was able to get it on the cycle to work scheme. The price difference between the regular RC 520 and the Gravel seems difficult to justify but I do prefer the paint job and bigger tyres which will make my commute to work more comfortable.

    Just ordered them today waiting for them to arrive but read the review
    The writer says "I've worn these in sustained torrential rain, and when I got home five hours later my hands were totally dry inside".
