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 SL 6 is a carbon gravel bike without limits. It's designed to take you to places you'd never reach on a standard road bike – like the mud-caked finish line of the world's greatest gravel races. A lightweight OCLV Carbon frame with gravel-smoothing IsoSpeed, a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain and extra mounts for gear and accessories make the Checkpoint SL 6 a true gravel powerhouse and the best choice for serious all-road adventurers.

It's right for you if...

You have big dreams for the likes of Dirty Kanza, Land Run 100 and Trans Iowa, and know that you'll need the most dialled gravel bike for these epic adventures. You also love the idea of one bike with such incredible versatility that it excels at gravel racing, adventure road riding, bikepacking and whatever kind of ride you feel like tackling next.

The tech you get

A 500 Series OCLV Carbon frame with Rear IsoSpeed, a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain, 700x35 Schwalbe TL-EX G-One Tubeless Ready gravel tyres, powerful flat-mount hydraulic disc brakes and Bontrager Paradigm Comp Disc wheels with Shimano RT800 Ice-Tech FREEZA rotors and finned brake pads for reliability and extra stopping power. Plus, Control Freak internal cable routing, a carbon seatmast cap, Carbon Armour to protect the frame against debris, 12 mm thru axles and Stranglehold dropouts that make it easy to fine-tune your geometry or run singlespeed.

The final word

Trek's best carbon gravel bike for the longest days, roughest roads and biggest adventures. It's light, fast, comfortable and spec'd with parts that stand up to the most rugged terrain, like the upgraded Bontrager Paradigm wheelset and a full Shimano Ultegra drivetrain.
