It's right for you if...

Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favor 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 dollar, including quality, versatility, durability, and a ridiculous amount of fun.

The tech you get

A 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with massive tire clearance and adjustable Stranglehold dropouts, a carbon fork, 12mm thru axles, an 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain, and a wide-range 11-34 cassette that's great for climbing. Plus, fender 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 tires for added stability and traction.

The final word

If the amount of adventure you can get per dollar 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 tire clearance and customization options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.

    Sizing & fit

    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 Trek retailer.
