This is Trek's top of the range Checkpoint gravel/adventure bike.

Full carbon frame and forks (plus a carbon sear mast on the SL 6), plus a 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.

The SL 6 also boasts an Ultegra groupset for ultimate shifting ease and reliability, plus upgraded RT800 hydraulic disc brakes with finned rotors to ensure fade-free braking even on the toughest of tracks.

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 don't currently offer a "WSD" version of the Checkpoint SL 6. Out of the box it comes with a "men's" saddle. But when you buy from Bespoke, we'll make sure you get the perfect fit on the bike you want, regardless of your gender or manufacturer's marketing ideas.

Technically speaking the WSD bikes are Trek's "women's" models - but they freely admit they're exactly the same frameset as the "men's" - 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. So whether you're male or female, any of the Checkpoint are available to you. Proper biking equality!
