Checkpoint SL 5

/
£2,700.00 Model 22632
The Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures. It's built with a full Shimano 105 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, but the defining feature of this model is the lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed, a decoupler at the top tube/seat tube junction that provides additional compliance over rough terrain so you can stay stronger for longer.

It's right for you if...

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'd rather spend your money on a lightweight carbon frame than a top-of-the-line drivetrain, but you still expect your workhorse gravel bike to perform. You want a bike that's both fast and comfortable, and you want endless carrying options for gravel races and everyday adventures.

The tech you get

A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Rear IsoSpeed, powerful flat mount hydraulic disc brakes, a full 2x11 Shimano 105 groupset and 700x35 Schwalbe TL-EX G-One Tubeless Ready gravel tyres. Checkpoint SL 5 also has Control Freak internal cable routing, an alloy seatmast cap, Carbon Armour to protect your frame against debris, 12 mm thru axles and Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed.

The final word

Light, fast, comfortable. The Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike that nails this trifecta. A quality groupset, massive tyre clearance, options for carrying gear, an OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed and a ride quality that can't be matched.

The Walkthrough

Checkpoint

favorite_borderWhy you'll love it

  1. The IsoSpeed decoupler cuts down on fatiguing bumps in gravel so you can wander more, reach new places and stay stronger for longer
  2. This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking and daily commutes
  3. Extra mounts on the top tube, seat tube and both sides of the downtube make it easy to carry extra gear and water
  4. Massive tyre clearance means you can use tyres up to 45 c for extra traction and stability in any condition
