The Checkpoint ALR 5 Driftless is a customised-paint, high-quality gravel bike that will hold up for long, rugged miles on the road, dirt and even the most treacherous gravel roads. 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.
You want a bike that?s made for adventure and doubles as a work of art. From the rugged frame and parts to a paint scheme inspired by the rolling hills and quiet roads of Wisconsin?s driftless area, this bike is the embodiment of off-road exploration.
A stout aluminium frame with an exclusive customised paint scheme, progressive geometry that's stable at speed and efficient when you're grinding up a climb, hidden cables that won't interfere with bags, plus rack and mudguard mounts and integrated frame bag mounts. A 1x11 Shimano GRX drivetrain with lower gears for grinding up hills or through rough gravel and wide 700x40c gravel tyres for added stability and traction. Fits tyres up to 45c wide.
The Checkpoint ALR 5 Driftless delivers quality parts, a durable alloy frame, a premium custom paint scheme, 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
- The gorgeous paint scheme and topo map pattern evoke the rugged, hilly escape of Wisconsin?s driftless region ? an area untouched by terrain-flattening glaciers
- Comes kitted out with a custom Bontrager frame bag that features the same topo map design as your Checkpoint!
- This bike is exceedingly versatile and suited to a wide variety of riding styles, including gravel rides, bike-packing and daily commutes
- Integrated frame bag mounts and rack and mudguard mounts make it easy to carry gear and water
More than a region. A state of mind.
The limited-edition Driftless design features topographical maps giving a nod to its namesake region, but more than that, it's a tribute to endless miles of adventures that wait for you beyond the next climb.
Drop it like it's hot
Dropper-equipped for total versatility. The Checkpoint Driftless is ready for you to get low on steep descents, drop a foot in dusty corners, and stay comfortable through long miles.
Carry it all
Load up for the long and dusty road with an included bolt-on frame bag with plenty of room for gear and snacks. Leaving no stone unturned, even the interior features unique topographical maps to inspire you to explore.
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.
