This is Trek's most "introductory" gravel and adventure bicycle. But that doesn't mean it'll hold you back anytime soon...

The Checkpoint AL 3 brings performance, versatility and reliability to your ride. With bottle cage mounts, rack mounts and fender mounts found everywhere on the Checkpoint AL 3, you'll have the ability to cover trips to the grocery store or weekend trips down gravel roads. Trek's 200 Series Alpha aluminum frame has been engineered for light weight, impressive strength and a smooth ride. The overall fit of the Checkpoint AL 3 features a tall head tube, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable for long trips on rough surfaces. A low 68mm bottom bracket gives the bike a better center of gravity than traditional road bicycles, making the bike feel planted on gravel or hardpan surfaces. 12mm thru-axle dropouts help to align disc brake rotors when installing wheels, as well as improving the frame's torsional strength. A carbon fiber Checkpoint fork is installed in a tapered head tube, improving handling precision in high-speed turns and descents. The Checkpoint AL 3's cables are all internally routed, giving the bike a sleek look and keeping cables and housing free of dirt. The frame and fork boast extra tire clearance for up to 35mm-wide rubber.

The Checkpoint AL 3's frame and fork performs extremely well, but that doesn't mean Trek slacked off in the component department. Far from it...

Shimano's 9-speed Sora components are found throughout this Checkpoint's drivetrain. A 50/34T compact Sora crankset and 11-32T Sora cassette brings a huge gearing range to the bike, making steep hills less of a challenge. Shimano Sora dual-control levers feature adjustable reach for smaller hands, while Shimano Sora derailleurs operate with less effort compared to the previous generation. Even the chain is from Shimano's Sora line! All this combines to give the Checkpoint AL 3 excellent durability and performance under the fingertips, not just over the roads. Tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager wheels are wrapped with 700x32c Bontrager R1 Hard-Case Lite tires, bringing a smooth ride and confident grip on a wide range of surfaces. Tektro C550 Spyre cable-operated disc brakes and 160mm rotors help keep speed reigned in in all conditions, rain or shine.

A Bontrager Arvada Comp saddle sits atop a Bontrager Approved alloy seatpost, while an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Elite Blendr stem and an alloy Bontrager Comp VR-C road handlebar complete this adventure-ready challenger.
