The Checkpoint SL 7 eTap is Trek’s best “multi-role” gravel bike. With plenty of frame and fork mounts -including fender and rear rack eyelets- the Checkpoint SL 7 eTap can tackle adventures paved and unpaved. The ultralight 500 Series OCLV carbon fiber frame and fork features progressive geometry that improves control on fast, gravel-strewn descents. Details matter when you expect everything out of your high-performance machine:

-An internal storage compartment in the down tube is a perfect place to stash a repair kit.
-Room for tires up to 45mm wide
-A tapered head tube for razor-sharp handling in the twisties.
-A damped IsoSpeed decoupler at the top tube/seat tube juncture soaks up hard impacts and railway crossings
-Downtube mounted carbon armor that repels flying gravel

The Checkpoint SL 7 eTap’s components are just as capable as the frameset. SRAM’s 12-speed Force AXS electronic drivetrain operates wirelessly, with perfect shifts. Every. Single. Time. Each derailleur is equipped with a rechargeable battery that will run for 500-600 miles between recharges. The batteries are swappable, in case one runs down before the other and you’re still far from home. A SRAM Force 43/30T crankset and 10-36T SRAM cassette bring a massive gearing range to the bike for tackling challenging terrain when loaded down.

Bontrager brings a tubeless OCLV carbon fiber wheelset to the Checkpoint SL 7 eTap: The Aeolus Pro 3V. With a 25mm interior rim width, the Checkpoint’s 700x40c GR1 tubeless tires can spread out for improved grip and lower rolling resistance. A Rapid Drive 108 freehub engages instantly with every turn of the pedals. Bladed and butted straight-pull spokes slice the air while adding improved ride quality.

The Checkpoint SL 7’s “furniture” wasn’t an afterthought. A Bontrager P3 Verse Comp sits atop a carbon fiber seatpost, keeping comfort high and overall weight low. Up front, an accessory-ready alloy Bontrager Pro Blendr stem and an alloy Elite Gravel short-reach handlebar completes this race-ready adventure machine.

A SRAM AXS battery charger is included with the purchase of this bicycle.
