After a year of extremely low availability from the Wisconsin based brand, Trek Bicycles has finally unveiled a relaunched family - with the Trek Checkpoint gravel bike gaining an extra performance-oriented model. 

The Trek Checkpoint range, which is considered one of the best gravel bike options, already included SL (carbon, from $3,199.99/€ 3,499.00/£3,200.00 at 9.65kg) and ALR (aluminium, $2,399.99/€ 2,399.00/£2,250, weight unlisted) models, but with this launch the brand adds the race-focused SLR (from $7,599.99/€ 6,999.00 /£6,450.00 at 8.65kg).
