A wealth of features like loads of mounts for bags and racks, and a SRAM Apex 1x12 drivetrain makes this Checkpoint ready to customize for your next adventure.

You favor epic gravel adventures that end with a big beverage and a burrito. But that doesn't mean you'll compromise on performance. You expect to get a lot for your hard-earned dollar, including quality, versatility, durability, and a ridiculous amount of fun.

A stout 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with a progressive geometry that's stable at speed and efficient when you're grinding up a climb, hidden cables that won't interfere with bags, rack and fender mounts and integrated frame bag mounts, a 1x12 SRAM Apex drivetrain for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, hydraulic disc brakes for all-condition stopping power, tubeless ready rims, and wide Bontrager Girona Pro 700x42c gravel tires for added stability and traction.

If the amount of adventure you can get per dollar spent is a priority for you, Checkpoint ALR 5 is your ride. Quality parts, a durable alloy frame, and a wealth of features like extra tire clearance and customization options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.
