It's right for you if...
Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favour 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 dosh, including quality, versatility, durability, a ridiculous amount of fun and details that can provide a better fit and feel for women, like a narrower handlebar and a Women-Specific Design saddle.
The tech you get
A 300 Series Alpha Aluminium frame with massive tyre clearance and adjustable Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed, a carbon fork, 12 mm thru axles, an 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain, a wide-range 11-34 cassette that's great for climbing, mudguard and rack mounts, flat mount hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power, a Women-Specific Design saddle and 700x40 Bontrager GR1 tyres for added stability and traction.
The final word
If the amount of adventure you can get per pound spent is a priority for you, you won't do better than the Checkpoint ALR 5 Women's. Quality parts, a durable alloy frame that keeps the price in check and a wealth of features like extra tyre clearance and customisation options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.
