The pictures don’t really show how beautiful the colour of this Checkpoint SL7 actually is. The Rage Red, brushed aluminium logos and naked lacquered carbon work together really well.

Kona Secrets book available
Kona Secrets: Lessons learned from over 50 Kona Qualifications.
Knowledge doesn’t produce results, action does. Just knowing how to do something doesn’t guarantee success, especially something as difficult as qualifying for Kona; you have to put in the hours. In this book I share some of the lessons I learnt between being a back-of-the-pack beginner to qualifying for the Ironman World Championships in Kona, Hawaii.
The frame has bosses (mounting points) for multiple bottles, bags, fenders, pannier racks for multi-day gravel adventures or can be ridden stripped down and naked (the bike not me) as a really fast gravel or cyclocross racer.
The wheelbase is easily adjustable, longer for more stability when it’s fully loaded, shorter for snappier more lively handling.
The Bontrager Team Issue GR tyres paired up with the Aeolus Pro 3V wheelset give a fat/chunky look that is completely at odds with the actual weight of the bike. When you pick it up it’s very surprising how light it is despite it’s robust and chunky looks.
