Product Information

Trek Checkpoint AL 3 Men's Gravel Bike

Trek made the Checkpoint AL 3 as their entry level entry level Gravel bike that was designed to take your further than your road bike could. More adventures, more exploring, more fun, all well within £1,000. And it's true the opportunities with the Checkpoint are endless, it has the capability to carry racks which makes it great for commuting on, it comes with Bontrager's tubeless ready wheelset which helps to significantly lower your chances of getting punctures, making it great for taking on the route less travelled and it has disc brakes which are far superior to rim brakes for stopping in wet and mucky conditions ... it's hard to find anything not to like about it. The AL 3 comes finished with a Shimano Sora 9-speed groupset that features a 50/34, compact, groupset so you can roll up the hills and race down them, not being limited to where you can and can't go. Finally, Trek's Alpha Aluminium 200 series frame is backed by a lifetime warranty, so as they say, go break a leg (or not!).
