Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures. It's built with a Shimano GRX drive train 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 for longer.
The IsoSpeed decoupler cuts down on fatiguing bumps in gravel so you can wander more, reach new places and stay stronger for longer.
This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bikepacking and daily commutes.
Extra mounts on the top tube, seat tube and both sides of the down tube make it easy to carry extra gear and water.
Massive tyre clearance means you can use tyres up to 45 c for extra traction and stability in any conditions.
The horizontal sliding dropout makes it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed.
