Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic all-road adventures. It's built with a full Shimano 105 drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, but the defining feature of this model is the lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed, a decoupler at the top tube/seat tube junction that provides additional compliance over rough terrain so you can stay stronger longer. It's right for you if... Chamois or cut-off shorts, bikepacking trip or brutal day of gravel racing—you're going to ride far, go fast, and have a great time. You'd rather spend your money on a lightweight carbon frame than a top-of-the-line drivetrain, but you still expect your workhorse gravel bike to perform.

The tech you get A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Rear IsoSpeed, powerful flat mount hydraulic disc brakes, a full 2x11 Shimano 105 groupset, and 700x35 Schwalbe TL-EX G-One Tubeless Ready gravel tires.

The final word Light, fast, comfortable. Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike that nails this trifecta. A quality groupset, massive tire clearance, options for carrying gear, an OCLV Carbon frame with IsoSpeed, and a ride quality that can't be matched.

Sometimes you get up before dawn to bag a century before lunch, and sometimes the best roads are the least maintained; Trek's Domane SLR will revolutionize how you experience long days and rough roads, making your favorite rides even more memorable. Developed in close coordination with the cobbles-racing master, Fabian Cancellara, this long-range rocket offers a rear IsoSpeed system that allows you to adjust and dial in the compliance based on your terrain, riding style, and personal preference. Trek took endurance-oriented comfort further though, adding IsoSpeed to the front end by decoupling the steerer tube from the head tube, increasing compliance by 10%. Trek knew they had something special in Front IsoSpeed but the effect could be amplified with a new handlebar to address higher frequency vibration, so Bontrager responded with the IsoCore handlebar. Constructed with a continuous inner layer of a thermoplastic elastomer encased in OCLV carbon, the IsoCore handlebar reduces high-frequency vibration by 20%. The Domane SLR 7 is built with Trek's 600 series OCLV carbon, ensuring low weight and further enhancing the comfort of your ride. The BB90 bottom bracket directs all your power to the road so that you're as efficient as you are comfortable. Bontrager's tubeless-ready Affinity Comp wheels and 28mm-wide R3 tires offer a supple grip through sweeping descents and strength across pock-marked country roads. A full Shimano Ultegra Di2 drivetrain gives you perfect, effortless shifting and enough range to tackle the most daunting mountain passes, while powerful direct mount brakes minimize weight. The Domane SLR incorporates hidden fender mounts for those epic Rule #9 days, a 3S chain keeper for confidence across rough roads, and DuoTrap S integration for sleek data transmission. The Ride Tuned seatmast further reduces weight, and the Domane Control Center houses the internal Di2 battery just under the down tube water bottle cage.
