Gravel bikes can be ridden almost anywhere, on the road and off it. Adventure-ready features like disc brakes, additional clearance for wider tyres, and comfortable geometry let these bikes adapt to everything from rugged terrain to winter exploration. These bikes are for the days when you're not sure where the journey will take you, but need the bike you know will get you there.

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

 

It's right for you if...

Unlike the pure roadie who measures watts and weighs out meals, you favour 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 dosh, including quality, versatility, durability and a ridiculous amount of fun.

The tech you get

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

The final word

If the amount of adventure you can get per pound 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 tyre clearance and customisation options so you can confidently take on bigger, better adventures.
