Checkpoint ALR 5 is the best value gravel bike in the lineup. It's a high-quality build that will hold up for long, rugged miles on pavement, dirt, and even the most treacherous gravel roads.
Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favor epic off-road adventures that probably end with a beer and a burrito. But that doesn't mean you'll compromise on performance. You expect to get a lot for your hard-earned dollar, including quality, versatility, durability, and a ridiculous amount of fun.
The Checkpoint ALR features a stout aluminum frame with progressive geometry that's stable at speed and efficient when you're grinding up a climb, hidden cables that won't interfere with bags, rack and fender mounts and integrated frame bag mounts, a 2x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, hydraulic disc brakes for all-condition stopping power, tubeless ready rims, and wide 700x40c gravel tires for added stability and traction.
All Checkpoint ALR, SL and SLR come set up with 700x40c tubeless tires. Valves, sealant, and rim strip included.
Want a carbon frame and a performance-level drivetrain on your bike? Check out the Trek Checkpoint SL 5, with an upgraded drivetrains and a 500 series OCLV carbon frame.
Due to supply-chain issues, Specs are subject to change without notice.
2x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears (46/30 chainring paired with an 11-34 tooth cassette) helps you grind up hills or through rough gravel, and the powerful GRX hydraulic brakes keep you in control on the descent.
Lots of clearance means you can run meatier tires (700x45mm or 27.5x2.1") for tackling chunkier gravel and terrain.
Integrated frame bag and fender mounts make it easy to carry gear and water.
All Trek Checkpoint ALR, SL and SLR models come tubeless out of the box. Sealant, valves, and rim stips included.
Ditching the tubes and going tubeless will help you get the most performance out of your tires. There are no tubes to pinch, so you can run lower pressures for better traction, and you get more control and a smoother, faster ride. As an added bonus, a tubeless setup can help seal punctures before they become flats.
