Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures. Its built with lightweight OCLV Carbon, terrain-smoothing damped IsoSpeed, nimble-yet-stable progressive geometry, internal storage and loads of mounts. All of that adds up to a rad gravel bike capable of crushing the longest, roughest rides and the most ambitious bikepacking trips.

Its right for you if...
Chamois or cut-off shorts, bikepacking trip or brutal day of gravel racing—youre going to ride far, go fast, and have a great time. You want a bike thats 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 damped Rear IsoSpeed and carbon armor, a progressive geometry thats stable at speed and efficient when youre grinding up a climb, internal storage, hidden cables that wont interfere with bags, integrated frame bag mounts, and rack and fender mounts. Plus, a carbon fork, a 2x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, and wide 700x40c gravel tires for added stability and traction. You can even run a dropper post to get low on long descents.

The final word
Light, fast, comfortable. Checkpoint SL 5 gives you the unmatched ride quality of an OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed and gravel-specific geometry, plus internal storage and a drivetrain built for rough terrain.

FEATURES:

  • The damped, controlled rebound of the IsoSpeed decoupler soaks up fatiguing bumps without bouncing you around
  • All-new progressive geometry is quick and nimble yet keeps you stable and in control on fast, choppy descents
  • A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
  • Massive tire clearance means you can use tires up to 45c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
  • Integrated frame bag mounts and rack and fender mounts make it easy to carry gear and water
