Sometimes the bike industry needs to do a collective forhead-slap when they see a bike like the Checkpoint SL 5. Why doesn't everyone make a bike like this!

The Checkpoint SL 5 takes plenty of great features and combines them to make a brilliant all-rounder. It can take on plenty of weeklong adventures and still commute to work on Monday. Trek's exclusive 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber makes up the Checkpoint SL 5's frame, making it very light yet incredibly strong for excellent handling and power delivery. The fit of the Checkpoint is more upright, allowing a wider range of riders -and rider flexibilities- to get comfortable easily. A tapered head tube/steerer tube interface adds to the Checkpoint SL 5's handling precision, while a press-fit BB90 bottom bracket ensures flex-free power delivery with every pedal stroke. Out back, the adjustable Stranglehold thru-axle dropouts allow the rider to tweak the bike's wheelbase, adding stability for rough surfaces or heavy loads. The Checkpoint's all-carbon fork is also thru-axle equipped, adding an extra dash of handling precision.

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!), a rear IsoSpeed decoupler and Ride Tuned no-cut seatmast to soak up fatiguing vibration, downtube-mounted Carbon Armor to defend against rock strikes, and mounts galore for racks, fenders and bottle cages.

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 the 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, rain or shine. Tubeless-ready alloy Bontrager wheels are shod with Bontrager's 700x40c tubeless-ready GR1 Team Issue semi-treaded tires, giving the Checkpoint SL 5 excellent grip on road, gravel and hardpan surfaces alike.

Bontrager's Montrose Comp saddle, accessory-ready alloy Elite Blendr stem and alloy Race Lite IsoSpeed road handlebar completes this epic-ready machine.
