Trek has packed Checkpoint with gravel-specific features and off-road capability, and was designed to be set up in a wide variety of configurations depending on what the ride calls for.
Also available in carbon and in women's specific geometry, Checkpoint is a great match for riding in Marin.
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 with endless carry options for gravel races and everyday adventures, and you prefer the fit and feel of parts made specifically for women.
