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 money, including quality, versatility, durability and a ridiculous amount of fun.
The tech you get
A 300 Series Alpha Aluminium frame with massive tyre clearance and adjustable Stranglehold dropouts, a carbon fork, 12 mm thru axles, an 11-speed Shimano 105 drive train and a wide-range 11-34 cassette that's great for climbing. Plus, mudguard and rack mounts, flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power, a Bontrager Elite IsoZone handlebar with foam pads integrated into the tops and 700x40 Bontrager GR1 Comp 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 Checkpoint ALR 5. 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.

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.
