Checkpoint is the gravel bike that gives you the versatility and capability you need to tackle everything from epic backwoods adventures to fun-filled commutes and gravel racing pursuits. It's packed with gravel-specific features and off-road capability, and was designed to be set up in a wide variety of configurations depending on what the ride calls for.






Adapt to any adventure

Checkpoint is made for those who cast aside the luxury of smooth pavement in favor of a more engaging experience. Part of gravel’s draw is the mystery of what the day’s ride might bring: unpredictable weather, unpredictable surfaces, and sometimes brutally long distances.

No two outings are alike, which is why Checkpoint is as prepared for any outing as even the most seasoned gravel riders. From geometry and tire size to hydration and packing options, Checkpoint is always ready to adapt to the day’s ride, whether it’s a trip to the brewpub or a self-supported backwoods stage race.


However you like to hit the gravel, there's a Checkpoint ready to take the experience to the next level. With multiple carbon and aluminum models, as well as women's-specific options, we'll help you find the right one for you.

Racks and hydration: Carry everything, or nothing at all.

The longest gravel adventures require a lot more than your standard seat pack and Flare R tail light, but that doesn’t mean you should be weighed down with extra racks and cages on a short jaunt along the local trails.

Checkpoint is covered in rack and hydration mounts to leave the choice up to you. Fit up to three bottles in the main triangle, and mount your bags up front, in the back, down below, or up top. Scroll through the gallery above to see the just a few of the possibilities.

Choose your geometry & gearing

All models feature Trek's Stranglehold Dropout, a horizontal sliding dropout that allows the rider to customize ride feel with 15mm of wheelbase adjustment or easily run Checkpoint as a singlespeed.

Massive tire clearance

Run the tires that fit the ride at hand. Checkpoint comes equipped with ultra-versatile 700x35c gravel tires, but we're not ones to limit ourselves, so the bike comfortably accepts tire widths from 28-45c.
