It's right for you if...
You want a single durable, ultra-versatile gravel bike that's ready for adventure. Gravel? Check. Road? Check. Multi-day bikepacking? Check. Foul-weather commuting? Check. Check. Check.
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, a 10-speed Shimano Tiagra 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 and wide 700x40 Bontrager GR1 tyres for added stability and traction.
The final word
Bring it on, gravel! The 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 as well.
