It's right for you if...

Chamois or cut-off shorts, bikepacking trip or brutal day of gravel racing – you’re going to ride far, go fast and have a great time. You want a bike that’s both fast and comfortable, and you want endless carrying options for gravel races and everyday adventures.

The tech you get

A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with damped Rear IsoSpeed and carbon armour, a progressive geometry that’s stable at speed and efficient when you’re grinding up a climb, internal storage, hidden cables that won’t interfere with bags, integrated frame bag mounts and rack and mudguard mounts. Plus, a carbon fork, a 2×11 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.

The final word

Light, fast, comfortable. The 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.

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.

Sleek internal storage

A built-in storage compartment in the downtube lets you stow tools and gear.

IsoSpeed smooth

The damped, controlled rebound of the IsoSpeed decoupler soaks up fatiguing bumps without bouncing you around.
