The Light Blue Darwin 1x Steel Touring/Adventure Bike in Galvanised

Season : 2018

Brand : The Light Blue

Code : desinavlaGx1lavir-niwrad-

Weight : 0KG

Ready to explore whatever adventures heading down the road brings; from high streets to fire roads, Belgian cobbles to Iowa gravel - the choice is yours.

Lightweight Reynolds 725 steel frame fused together with the latest trend in off-road high-performance ‘1X’ gear systems.  SRAM Rival 1X uses a single front chainwheel, driving a wide ratio 11spd rear cassette, to deliver a useful spread of gears, in a simple to use, lightweight package.

Halo’s premium level Vapour GXC Supadrive 700C gravel focussed wheelset mated to 38C Halo Twin Rail tyres, allows you to traverse your choice of highway or byway with ease.

There is also an option to select to build the 1X with smaller diameter 650B rims and wider WTB 47C Venture tyres for those who want to be a little more adventurous on day one.

The Vapour rims are also future compatible with tubeless tyres.

Wrapped in Genetic's luxurious, comfort enhancing, Silicone tape, are the fashionable Driser-16 handlebars which raise the effective handlebar height and includes a comfort and control enhancing 16 degree ‘flare’ in the drops.   For those who prefer a non-drop handlebar set-up, Tioga flat handlebars are also an option.  Genetic's sporty STV saddle offers completes the quality set of contact points. 

International Standard 160mm discs delivers braking confidence in all conditions with cable operated TRP Spyre calipers or upgrade to a full hydraulic SRAM system for the ultimate in stopping ability. 

By opting to fit slightly narrower street focussed tyres, there’s also capacity for full mudguards and racks to be added, evolving this adaptable 'SUV' easily into an everyday commuter machine.

With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

You Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that, as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up and get it sent out to you - it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Estimated Delivery Dates

Estimated Delivery Dates are given on Pre-Order and Pre-Launch products. They are for indication purposes only and can change at any time without notice.

The dates we provide are based on indications given by our suppliers. Whenever we get updated information from our suppliers we will endeavour to update the Estimated Delivery Dates provided on product pages.
