The Paratrooper is the original folding mountain bike from Montague. Its patented folding design was developed under a grant from DARPA to allow airborne soldiers to drop out of airplanes and helicopters, and into combat. The Paratrooper offers 24 speeds, front suspension, mechanical disc brakes, and a Rackstand for hauling gear. Known for its durability and load bearing capabilities, this folding bike has also developed a following with everyday commuters and weekend warriors. A new and included feature is the RackStand which is a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and workstand all in one. A quick release allows it to rotate under the rear wheel on a specially designed axle mount. When in the lowered position it acts as a kickstand or workstand, makes folding your Montague easier, and allows the folded bike to be stored or displayed upright.
New for 2016 is the DirectConnect folding system, which removes the quick release from the top tube, provides an easier folding experience and larger clamping surface between the two halves of the frame. A flip of the quick release lever and your bike folds to a compact size.
The Paratrooper frame is designed around another patented system that allows the bike to fold without any breaks in the frame’s tubing. Not only does this make it easier to fold, but it makes Montague bikes the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around the same frame construction concepts as serious full suspension downhill bikes.
