The world of adventure cycling has exploded in the last few years, resulting in all manner of "soft-roader" machines. The Checkpoint series from Trek, however, isn't an oddball cyclocross machine or clumsy fatbike-with-drop-bars. The Checkpoint line was meant to be used for a wide range of applications from dirt road exploration to adventure camping to (of course) gravel racing. The Checkpoint ALR 5 Women's takes a refined approach to component selection and geometry, making it a class leader on its first roll-out.

The heart of the Checkpoint ALR 5 is an aluminum frame built with Trek's 300 Series Alpha series tubing. The hydroformed frame tubes add torsional stength for hard efforts, especially steep inclines while loaded down. A tapered head tube anchors the fork, improving handling precision on rough surfaces. The Checkpoint ALR 5's press-fit BB86.5 bottom bracket improves pedaling response, ensuring flex-free power delivery. Out back, the Stranglehold adjustable rear dropouts allow the rider to change the wheelbase up to 15mm, making the bike more stable on rough surfaces when fully extended. 12mm thru-axles front and rear improve torsional strength and overall handling further. The Checkpoint ALR 5's geometry isn't high-strung like a Belgian-geometry cyclocross bike, or lazy like a cargo bike. Trek's engineers wanted to make it responsive to the rider in all conditions, paved or unpaved. The bottom bracket is slightly lower than their Domane endurance bike, lowering the rider's center of gravity. The more upright fit and posture improves rider comfort as well. Mounting points for racks, fenders and bottle cages are found throughout Checkpoint ALR 5, allowing for versatility on long rides and expeditions. The fork also sports mounting points for low-rider racks. There's even a bottle mount under the down tube!

 Shimano's 11-speed 105 components are found throughout the drivetrain of the Checkpoint ALR 5, including the long-cage rear drailleur, front derailleur and 50/34T compact crankset. Shimano's RS505 dual-control levers bring shifting and braking to your fingertips with excellent lever feedback. An 11-34T Shimano cassette adds a huge gearing range to the Checkpoint, helping the rider tackle steep ascents while loaded down. Shimano hydraulic disc brakes boast excellent stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine.  Durability and high performance are the hallmarks of this component group; exactly what gravel racers and adventure riders are looking for when civilization is in your rear view mirror.

Bontrager's tubeless-ready alloy wheels are shod with Schwalbe's semi-treaded G-One Allround 700x35c tires, bringing a smooth feel and low rolling resistance to the Checkpoint ALR 5. The Checkpoint can fit tires up to 45c for really gnarly trails and fire roads.

A Bontrager Ajna Comp Womens saddle sits atop an alloy Bontrager seatpost, while an alloy Bontrager Elite stem boasts an accessory-ready Blendr mount for lights or a computer. An alloy Bontrager Race Lite IsoZone road handlebar completes this adventure-ready machine.
