Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic adventures. It's built with lightweight OCLV Carbon, a 2x12 Shimano GRX drivetrain, terrain-smoothing damped IsoSpeed, nimble yet stable progressive geometry, internal storage, and loads of mounts. All of that adds up to a rad gravel bike capable of crushing the longest, roughest rides and the most ambitious bikepacking trips.

Chamois or cut-off shorts, bikepacking trip or brutal day of gravel racing—you're going to ride far and have a great time. You want a bike that's both fast and comfortable, and you want endless options for loading up gear and heading to gravel races and out everyday adventures.

A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with damped rear IsoSpeed and carbon armor, progressive geometry that's stable at speed and efficient when you're grinding up a climb, internal frame storage, hidden cables that won't interfere with bags, and integrated frame, fork, rack, and fender mounts. Plus, a carbon fork, a 2x12 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, and Paradigm SL wheels. You can even run a dropper post to get low on long descents.

Light, fast, comfortable. Checkpoint SL 5 gives you the unmatched ride quality of an OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed and gravel-specific geometry, plus internal storage and a drivetrain built for rough terrain.

- It's equipped with rugged, gravel-focused 2x12 Shimano GRX drivetrain that's made for tackling the roads less traveled
- Massive tire clearance means you can use tires up to 45c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
- Fork mounts, frame mounts, and rack and fender mounts allow you to carry all the gear you need for day trips and bikepacking adventures
- A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
- The damped, controlled rebound of the IsoSpeed decoupler soaks up fatiguing bumps without bouncing you around
