With Pre-Order, you can purchase the latest items added to our store in advance of them arriving with us.

Your Pre-Order is prioritised (at no additional charge); meaning that as soon as the product arrives with us, we can wrap it straight back up; ready for collection via Click & Collect or despatch to you — it often never even hits the stock room shelves!


With Pre-Launch, the date when we expect to receive the product ourselves is still a little too hazy to be confident in accepting Pre-Orders.

So, instead, you can submit your email address against the item you are interested in and we will email you as soon as stock arrives on the system.

Trek Checkpoint SL 5 Gravel Bike in Matte Pennyflake




The Checkpoint SL 5 is a carbon gravel bike made for epic adventures.

It's built with lightweight OCLV Carbon, a 2x12 Shimano GRX drivetrain, terrain-smoothing damped IsoSpeed, nimble yet stable progressive geometry, internal storage and loads of mounts. All of that adds up to a rad gravel bike capable of crushing the longest, roughest rides and the most ambitious bikepacking trips.


  • It's equipped with rugged, gravel-focused 2x12 Shimano GRX drivetrain that's made for tackling the roads less travelled
  • Massive tyre clearance means you can use tyres up to 45 c for extra traction and stability in any conditions
  • Fork mounts, frame mounts, and rack and mudguard mounts allow you to carry all the gear you need for day trips and bikepacking adventures
  • A sleek internal storage compartment gives you a versatile spot to stow tools and gear
  • The damped, controlled rebound of the IsoSpeed decoupler soaks up fatiguing bumps without bouncing you around
