The SL 5 brings a carbon fibre frame to Trek's gravel/adventure Checkpoint range, plus a host of other upgrades from the AL series bikes.

Carbon frame, full carbon forks, rear IsoSpeed decoupler, additional top tube bag mounts and a "dropped" drive-side chainstay all make for a lighter weight, more agile frame with plenty of added comfort.

Fitted with 35mm tyres as standard, and taking up to 45mm, the frame isn't simply a relabelled cyclocross bike, it's been designed from scratch for maximum versatility on road and trail in all conditions.

Please note: Trek Bikes can be ordered online, but can only be collected from one of our stores. Trek do not permit any of their retailers to ship bikes to customers.

Trek also produce the Checkpoint SL 5 in a "WSD" version. This is technically speaking their "women's" model - but they freely admit it's exactly the same frameset - same geometry - just with women-specific contact points (women's saddle, narrower bars).

Why does this matter? Well, as part of the Bespoke bike fit that comes as part of the package we'll be changing any contact points as required to ensure the perfect fit, at no extra cost to you.

So the WSD models are effectively just a different colour option (and they have some very nice colours, too). So whether you're male or female, any of the Checkpoint are available to you. Proper biking equality!
