Checkpoint SL 5

/
$2,899.99 Model 24387

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 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 carry 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 700x40 Bontrager GR1 Team Issue Tubeless Ready gravel tires. Checkpoint SL 5 also has Control Freak internal cable routing, a Bontrager Elite IsoZone handlebar with foam pads integrated into the tops and drops, 12mm thru axles, fender and rack mounts, and Stranglehold dropouts.

The final word

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

  1. The IsoSpeed decoupler cuts down on fatiguing bumps in gravel so you can wander more, reach new places, and stay stronger longer
  2. This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of ride styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking, and daily commutes
  3. Extra mounts on the top tube, seat tube, and both sides of the down tube make it easy to carry extra gear and water
  4. Massive tire clearance means you can use tires up to 45c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
  5. The Stranglehold Dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed

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.
