It's right for you if...
You want a single durable, ultra-versatile gravel bike that's ready for adventure. Gravel? Check. Tarmac? Check. Multi-day bikepacking? Check. Foul-weather commuting? Check. Check. Check.
The tech you get
A stout aluminium frame with rack and mudguard mounts, a vibration-absorbing carbon fork, a 2x10 Shimano GRX drive train with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, hydraulic disc brakes for all-condition stopping power and wide 700x40c gravel tyres for added stability and traction.
The final word
Bring it on, gravel! Checkpoint ALR 4 is a high-value gateway to a world of adventure. It's rugged, fast, comfortable and has an amazing amount of tech for its price. Though it's made to stand up to the rigours of gravel roads, the frame geometry and accessory mounts make it a great choice for road rides and commutes too.
favorite_borderWhy you'll love it
- The Checkpoint ALR 4 introduces you to the exciting new frontier of gravel riding at a value that can't be matched
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking and daily commutes
- Mounts on the seat tube and both sides of the down tube make it easy to carry extra gear and water
- Massive tyre clearance means you can use tyres up to 45 c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
- The horizontal sliding dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed
Gravel Specific Tyres
Wider gravel-specific tyres provide better traction and more stability while riding on gravel or dirt tracks.
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 road wheels. When you go tubeless with TLR, you can run lower tyre pressure for increased traction and comfort without the threat of pinch flats.

Sizing & Tech
The charts below show our recommended sizes based on height, but there are some other factors, like arm and leg length, that determine a great fit. That’s why you’ll see some overlap in our recommendations. Not every rider who’s 5´8˝, for example, will fit on the same size bike. The best way to find your perfect fit is to consult the experts at your local retailer.
