Introducing the all-new Checkpoint
2022 Trek Checkpoint
Across the globe, gravel bikes are rapidly increasing in popularity – and we’ve got an all-new family of Checkpoints to help you meet that growing demand!
Three new Checkpoint platforms
Gravel riding includes a massive range of rider types and riding styles, so we’re rolling out three new platforms to help you meet those rider needs and give your customers plenty of choices.
Checkpoint SLR is the lightest, fastest gravel bike we’ve ever made. It features an OCLV 700 series frame with tube shapes and internal routing borrowed from the Émonda, helping make it the most aerodynamic gravel bike in our arsenal.
It’s also equipped with top-tube IsoSpeed and a seat mast to ensure smooth ride after smooth ride. With fewer mounts than its siblings, Checkpoint SLR stays fast and light – but it still has mounts for fenders, a bento box and a frame bag. It also features in-tube storage (borrowed from Domane and Fuel EX) to make it easy to store a flat kit and there’s room for 45 mm tyres on all sizes.
Checkpoint SL is the all-around bike of the family and it can handle whatever adventure your customers throw at it. It uses 500 series OCLV carbon and features a top-tube IsoSpeed to keep the ride smooth and comfortable when the roads are anything but – and with a 27.2 seatpost, it’s got dropper compatibility for your customers who love to bomb singletrack.
It’s rounded off with plenty of mounts for accessories and its fenders, bento boxes, frame bag bosses, and front and rear racks ensure that the rider is always ready for the next adventure. It also features in-tube storage to give riders easy access to their essentials and there’s room for 45 mm tyres on every size.
Checkpoint ALR is the utility-focused value bike of the line-up and it’s the perfect bike for your first-time gravel customers or riders who just want a bike that can do it all. Its Alpha 300 series aluminium frame features tons of mounts for fenders, bags, bottles, and front and rear racks. Just like the SLR and SL, it has room for 45 mm tyres on all sizes.
