Checkpoint ALR 5 is the best value gravel bike in the line-up. It's a high-quality build that will hold up for long, rugged miles on roads, dirt and even the most treacherous gravel. A wealth of features like nimble-yet-stable progressive geometry, loads of mounts, plus a GRX drivetrain make it easy to customise for your kind of adventure.
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.
A sturdy 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 2x11 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.
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.
- All-new progressive geometry is quick and nimble yet keeps you stable and in control on fast, choppy descents
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bike-packing and daily commutes
- Massive tyre clearance means you can use tyres up to 45 c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
- Integrated frame bag mounts and rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to carry gear and water
New progressive geometry
For quick, nimble handling that still keeps you stable and in control on rougher descents.
Lots of clearance means you can run meatier tyres (700x45 mm or 27.5x2.1") for tackling chunkier gravel and terrain.
Tons of mounts
Integrated frame bag and mudguard mounts make it easy to carry gear and water.
Shimano GRX was designed from the ground up for gravel adventure. With its gravel-specific ergonomics, optimised gearing options, rugged reliability and quiet, stable drivetrain, GRX sets itself apart from the rest of the component world.
