It's a high-quality build that will hold up for long, rugged miles on pavement, dirt, and even the most treacherous gravel roads.

Why you'll love it

  1. With Checkpoint ALR 5, you're getting high-quality parts at an exceptional value, which means you'll have extra dough for adventure travel… and burritos
  2. This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of ride styles, including gravel rides, bike-packing, and daily commutes
  3. Massive tire clearance means you can use tires up to 45c for extra traction and stability in any conditions

  5. The horizontal sliding dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run single-speed

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 fu

The tech you get

A stout aluminum frame with rack and fender mounts, a vibration-absorbing carbon fork, a 2x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, hydraulic disc brakes for all-condition stopping power, and wide 700x40c gravel 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.
