Trek's Checkpoint SL 5 is where demanding adventures -and adventurers- can get serious performance and reliability.

The carbon fiber versions of the Checkpoint gravel/adventure bike series start here, making the case for higher speeds on dirt.

Trek's own 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber is used to build the "backbone" of the Checkpoint SL 5, giving the bike impressive strength as well as very low weight. There are plenty of mounting points for racks and bottle cages to be found, so the bike isn't expected to only carry the rider. Carbon fiber also soaks up fatiguing vibration better than any material, making it an excellent choice when traversing miles and miles (and miles) of gravel washboard. To take the edge off harder hits, the Checkpoint SL 5 employs an IsoSpeed decoupler at the seat tube/top tube juncture. With a pair of cartridge bearings and a no-cut Ride Tuned seat mast, the bike's IsoSpeed unit can soak up sudden large impacts better than any gravel bike out there. Helping to anchor the crankset is a press-fit BB90 bottom bracket. Flex-free power delivery is what the Checkpoint SL 5 is all about, and Trek made sure energy isn't wasted with a rubbery bike! A tapered head tube adds an extra dash of handling precision. 12mm thru-axles hold the wheels front and rear, making wheel changes with disc brakes a snap. Out back, the thru-axle dropouts are adjustable up to 15mm front-to-back. Called Stranglehold, they allow the rider to adjust the bike's wheelbase, adding clearance for wider tires, or shortening it to make the bike feel nimble. There are even rack and fender mounts on the Checkpoint's carbon fiber fork as well.

Little details on the Checkpoint SL 5 add up to huge versatility, including a 3S chain keeper that prevents dropped chains (and greasy fingers), asymmetrical chainstays for better tire clearance (up to 45c!), and clever downtube-mounted Carbon Armor that defends against rock strikes. Control Freak internal cable routing keeps the bike looking clean and sleek, too.

Shimano's latest update of their venerable 105 component group are found on the Checkpoint SL 5. Now called "R7000", the latest update includes features found on their Ultegra and Dura-Ace component groups, improving functionality, performance and user-friendliness. The new 105 rear derailleur is now a Shadow-style unit, increasing cassette capacity up to 34T, as well as tucking it under the chainstay for more precise operation, especially under hard pedaling loads. The new 105 front derailleur's toggle pivot design is much more compact, easier to adjust, and improves clearance for wider tires at the cage's trailing edge. Shimano's engineers have dropped 30 grams out of the new R7000 105 crankset while improving aerodynamics. The lighter 105 dual-control levers have a wider range of adjustment for smaller hands, as well as improved lever hood texture. Less effort is needed for each shift, too. The flat-mount Shimano hydraulic disc brakes found on the Checkpoint SL 5 help regulate speed with excellent lever feedback and sheer stopping power in all conditions, rain or shine. Tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager wheels are wrapped with Schwalbe's 700x35c tubeless-ready G-One Allround semi-treaded tires, giving the Checkpoint SL 5 excellent grip on road, gravel and hardpan surfaces alike.

Bontrager's Ajna Comp saddle, accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem and alloy Race Lite IsoZone VR-CF road handlebar completes this adventure-ready bicycle.
