DEATHGRIP puts the defining style of Brendan Fairclough with the progressive filmmaking of Clay Porter, slamming them together into an in-your-face, non-stop onslaught of race-pace action set against Planet Earth scenery. It pushes mountain biking to a new level of intensity and documents the sport a pulse higher than ever before.

DEATHGRIP will debut its world premiere in Fairclough’s home city of London, England on April 13th, 2K17. The film will then set sail on a global premiere tour, including a public screening at Sea Otter Classic on April 21st in Monterey, California. The film will be brought to live audiences around the world in Munich, Barcelona, Madeira and South Arica throughout May. A global release is scheduled for May 30th through iTunes and other digital platforms. Pre-order is available now through Vimeo On Demand.

bigquotesMy goal for Deathgrip is for people to watch the movie and only be able to watch the first 10 minutes before they have to turn it off, jump on their bike and go rip a turn.Brendan Fairclough

Brendan Fairclough (Starring Athlete – London, England) is one of mountain biking’s biggest influencers. A World Cup racer at heart and by trade, Fairclough’s riding has taken him around the world since the age of seventeen. The sport has made a mark on Fairclough and he fully intends to return the favor through DEATHGRIP. Fairclough currently rides for the Scott-Velosolutions team. 2017 marks his 11th consecutive season of World Cup racing.

Clay Porter (Director – San Francisco, California) has spent more than half his life documenting the sport of downhill mountain biking and created some of the genre’s most influential and successful projects including Won’t Back Down: The Steve Peat Story (2014), 3 Minute Gaps (2011), The Atherton Project (2009–2011) and Between The Tape (2007). DEATHGRIP marks Porter’s tenth globally distributed mountain bike film project. During the past few years, Porter has created commercial content for a range of brands including Nike, Coca-Cola, Lexus, and Girl Skateboards. For the past five years, he has worked primarily with Metis Creative production colleagues Cameron Baird and John Reynolds since the commercial production boutique’s founding in 2011. Porter currently serves as the creative director of Metis Creative.

 Can't wait. Bring back the golden days with clay porter pumping out videos along with the collective, earthed and NWD. We didn't realise how lucky we were with so many sick features being produced

 and Kerr !! and Gwin for a serious roost !!

 Ahh, finally a freeride film I'd like to see! I lost interest in backflipping and cliff dropping movies somewhere between NWD 2 and 3, after that I have been only interested in DH racing or BMX films. Never was into artsy lifestyle-documenting MTB films either.
This, on the other hand, looks legit! (if Porter can keep the slow mo to a minimum)

 That trailer made me seasick - I think the longest steady shot was 1 second. Looks like a cool vid, but the trailer feels like its trying to give everyone ADHD.
  • + 4
 Looks great, especially without that cringeworthy narration that's in the first teaser.
  • + 1
 Almost time! I've been waiting for this ever since the announcement was made. Can't wait to see Brendog and his buddies shred the hell out of every trail they ride. Clay Porter is a genius when it comes to making mtb films so this is gunna be SO $#@$()#@*(#@$#@ AWESOME!!

 Every cliche in the book for that intro. It's like a Monster Energy commercial. That said it totally works and I'll be buying Smile
  • + 4
 Oh yeah ! Schladming is back !

 Maybe I need to rewatch 3-minute Gaps... I bought it because it had Clay's name and I remember being really disappointed and wanting my money & time back when I watched it.

 Well this looks epic...!

 Dear Brendog,if the trailer is enough for me to go out and ride. 10 minutes of it, my company might lose one employee
