Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures. It’s built with a Shimano GRX drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, but the defining feature of this model is the lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed, a decoupler at the top tube/seat tube junction that provides additional compliance over rough terrain so you can stay stronger longer.

Description

If after miles and miles of riding your road bike you get tired of dealing with traffic. Or maybe you’re sick of always being on the lookout for irresponsible drivers. Or, perhaps, you just want to spice things up. Maybe it’s time to see what nature has to offer.

In order to hop on a nature trail, and start your adventure, you’ll need a tough, dependable, all-rounder bike. This is where Trek’s Checkpoint SL 5 gravel bike comes into play.

Freedom, speed, and reliance. These are the keywords that define the Checkpoint SL 5 bike.

Freedom

Its impressive tire clearance allows you to accommodate tires up to 45c, allowing you to challenge the toughest roads and emerge triumphant.

Made of carbon this bike is shock absorbent. 2, 8, or 12 hours no matter how long you ride you’ll always feel comfortable. This means you can travel longer distances and explore more.

Speed

The Stranglehold Dropout allows you to run singlespeed. There are several benefits from this transition, one of the most enjoyable is the ability to descend at top speed from a hill. Your fatigued leg days are over.

On the opposite side, the Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears allows you to climb the steepest hill as if it was an anthill.

Reliance

A beautiful but tough 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame, hydraulic disc brakes, and Control Freak internal routing make this a versatile bike. Adapt it to your specific needs, take it anywhere you want. This is an extremely dependable bike that won’t let you down.

Furthermore, it has mounts for 4 water bottle cages. Perhaps not letting you suffer from dehydration is a pretty good quality of this gravel bike. Won’t you agree?
