It's right for you if...
Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favor epic all-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 tech you get
A 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with massive tire clearance and adjustable Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed, a carbon fork, 12mm thru axles, an 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain, wide-range 11-34 cassette that's great for climbing, fender and rack mounts, flat mount hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power, and 700x40 Bontrager GR1 tires for added stability and traction.
The final word
If the amount of adventure you can get per dollar spent is a priority for you, you won't do better than Checkpoint ALR 5. Quality parts, a durable alloy frame that keeps the price in check, and a wealth of features like extra tire clearance and customization options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.

Flat Mount disc brakes
All-new Flat Mount disc brakes are more elegant, lighter, smaller and cleaner than traditional disc brakes, providing superior performance and stopping power under harsh conditions.
Tubeless Ready rims
Bontrager TLR (Tubeless Ready) Road is the first fully integrated tubeless system for the road. No tubes mean there’s no pinch flats, allowing you to run lower tire pressure. With lower tire pressure you can increase traction, control. and comfort, reduce fatigue on you. Best of all, the tire sealant seals up punctures as soon as they happen!
