Checkpoint SL 6 eTap is a carbon gravel bike designed to take you places you'd never reach on a standard road bike.
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 6 eTap 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 smooth 1x12 SRAM Rival eTap AXS drivetrain gives you precision, clean looks and is customizable to personalize your shift settings.
Wide 700x40c gravel tires (With clearance up to 45c) adds stability and traction and you can even run a dropper post to get low on long descents.
All Checkpoint SL and SLR come set up with tubeless 700x40c tires. Valves, sealant, and rim strip included.

Wireless controls open the door to new levels of customization. With AXS, you can personalize your component behavior to match your riding style and preferences. Turn on enhanced shifting modes, or reassign shifting actions.
The AXS Mobile App and AXS Web App allow you to monitor your bike’s performance and readiness. It’s an easy way to keep tabs on your battery levels—including the CR2032 batteries in eTap shift levers—and keep AXS component firmware up-to-date.
One of the highlights of AXS is the ability to personalize shift settings. Turning on Enhanced Shift Mode gives you access to two shift settings.
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.
