Video: Chris Akrigg redefines what’s possible on a gravel bike

The trials legend is back with another outrageous video

Chris Akrigg is back with another outrageous video, this time pushing a gravel bike to its limit in the trials legend’s trademark style.


Gravel bikes are often touted as the ultimate N+1, with the versatility to ride hard on the road and venture off the beaten track. Put a gravel bike in Akrigg’s hands – he’s riding a Mongoose Guide – and, well, just watch the video.

Interestingly, Akrigg’s Mongoose is fitted with a Fox AX fork, launched in 2017 as a mixed-terrain fork with 40mm of travel.


The fork has three options for compression damping – open, medium, and lockout with blow-off – and is aimed at gravel riders who want to get more out of their drop-handlebar bike.
