It's right for you if...

Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favour epic off-road adventures that probably end with a beer and a bag of chips. But that doesn’t mean you’ll compromise on performance. You expect to get a lot for your hard-earned money, including quality, versatility, durability and a ridiculous amount of fun.

The tech you get

A stout aluminium 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 mudguard mounts and integrated frame bag mounts, a 2×11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel, hydraulic disc brakes for all-condition stopping power, tubeless-ready rims and wide 700x40c gravel tyres for added stability and traction.

The final word

If the amount of adventure you can get per pound spent is a priority for you, you won’t do better than Checkpoint ALR 5. Quality parts, a durable alloy frame and a wealth of features like extra tyre clearance and customisation options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.

Features

New progressive geometry

For quick, nimble handling that still keeps you stable and in control on rougher descents.

Tyre clearance

Lots of clearance means you can run meatier tyres (700×45 mm or 27.5×2.1″) for tackling chunkier gravel and terrain.

Tons of mounts

Integrated frame bag and mudguard mounts make it easy to carry gear and water.
