Details

Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures.

Chamois or cut-off shorts, bikepacking trip or brutal day of gravel racing—you're going to ride far, go fast, and have a great time. You want a bike that's both fast and comfortable, and you want endless carry options for gravel races and everyday adventures.

The SL 5 features a lightweight 500 OCLV carbon frame with rear IsoSpeed to smooth out bumps in the road and reduce fatigue. Integrated mounts let you cleanly bolt on a bags to carry gear and water for all day adventures. The integrated BITS storage lets you stow your tools and gear (or your favourite mid-ride snacks) in the downtube.

The 2x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears helps when you are grinding up hills or getting through rough gravel, and wide 700x40c gravel tires adds stability and traction. You can even run a dropper post to get low on long descents.

All Checkpoint SL and SLR come set up with tubeless 700x40mm tires. Valves, sealant, and rim strip included.

Want a crisp shifting electronic drivetrain on your Checkpoint? Check out the Trek Checkpoint SL 6 eTap, with an upgraded 1X 12-speed drivetrain.

Due to supply-chain issues, Specs are subject to change without notice.

IsoSpeed works by absorbing bumps in the road and trail, so you can ride stronger and more comfortably without sacrificing the feel and efficiency of a traditional bike.


It challenges other vibration-damping tech by maintaining the same diamond-shape frame as traditional bikes but decoupling the seat tube from the frame. This allows the bike to respond and maneuver just like a standard race bike, while the decoupled seat tube enables enough vertical flex to elevate comfort for every rider.


This simplified and smart design soaks up vibration for a smooth ride without bogging you down with energy-gobbling suspension.

Integrated frame bag and fender mounts make it easy to carry gear and water.

Built-in storage compartment in the downtube lets you stow tools and gear.

All Trek Checkpoint 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.
