It's right for you if...
You're in it for the adventure and want a performance gravel bike so you can go farther and faster. You spend long days in the saddle, and want the gravel-smoothing ride of Trek's exclusive IsoSpeed decoupler on your dream gravel bike build.
The tech you get
A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with damped Rear IsoSpeed and carbon armor, a carbon fork, a progressive geometry that's stable at speed and efficient when you're grinding up a climb, internal storage, hidden cables that won't interfere with bags, integrated frame bag mounts, and rack and fender mounts. It comes with a headset and is built for 12mm thru axles, flat-mount disc brakes, and a T47 bottom bracket. You can even run a dropper post to get low on long descents. Fits up to 45c tires.
The final word
Checkpoint SL frameset is the ideal starting point for a performance gravel bike build. The geometry keeps you stable yet speedy, it's covered in extra mounts, you get internal storage, and it has an IsoSpeed decoupler for compliance on rough terrain.
