Gravel bikes can be ridden almost anywhere, on the road and off it. Adventure-ready features like disc brakes, additional clearance for wider tires, and comfortable geometry let these bikes adapt to everything from rugged terrain to winter exploration. These bikes are for the days when you’re not sure where the journey will take you, but need the bike you know will get you there.
Feature Bike: The Checkpoint AL3
Checkpoint AL 3 may be the introductory gravel bike in the lineup, but it’s packed with features that make it a worthy choice for new and experienced gravel grinders alike, like a lightweight aluminum frame, Shimano drivetrain, thru axles, Tubeless Ready wheels, and disc brakes for better braking power in all weather conditions.
Feature Bike: The Checkpoint SL5
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.
