Checkpoint ALR 5 is the best value gravel bike in the lineup. It's a high-quality build that will that hold up for long, rugged miles on pavement, dirt, and even the most treacherous gravel roads. But what sets this model apart is the performance parts and the wealth of features like adjustable Stranglehold dropouts, massive tire clearance, and extra mounts that make it easy to customize for your kind of adventure.

It's right for you if...

Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favor epic all-road adventures that probably end with a beer and a burrito. But that doesn't mean you'll compromise on performance. You expect to get a lot for your hard-earned dollar, including quality, versatility, durability, and a ridiculous amount of fun.

A 300 Series Alpha Aluminum frame with massive tire clearance and adjustable Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed, a carbon fork, 12mm thru axles, an 11-speed Shimano 105 drivetrain, wide-range 11-34 cassette that's great for climbing, fender and rack mounts, flat mount hydraulic disc brakes for all-weather stopping power, and 700x35 Schwalbe G-One tires for added stability and traction.

The final word

If the amount of adventure you can get per dollar spent is a priority for you, you won't do better than Checkpoint ALR 5. Quality parts, a durable alloy frame that keeps the price in check, and a wealth of features like extra tire clearance and customization options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.
