Interbike is North America’s premier bicycle industry trade show. Each fall the leading manufacturers, retailers, and cycle media gather in Las Vegas, Nevada for a look at the latest trends and new products for the coming year. Montague presented their fully redesigned 2016 bike line as well as the award winning RackStand to much fanfare.
Flying over the desert into Nevada always has wonderful views.
The Mandalay Bay convention center was host to this year’s show. Their recent expansion allowed for even more exhibitors, making this the largest Interbike to date.
After a day and a half of set up, the show officially opened on Wednesday. The booth prominently featured the new Montague color scheme and logo alongside a 2016 line of bikes seeing their US premiere.
Montague’s new folding system called DirectConnect™, removes the quick release from the top tube, provides a larger clamping surface between the two halves of the frame, and simplifies operation.
The newly designed RackStand™ acts as a traditional luggage carrier perfectly suited for Montague folding bikes, includes an integrated fender, and rotates under the wheel to act as a kickstand, workstand, or stand for the folded bike.
The revamped bike line includes 27.5″ wheel mountain bikes, road bikes with wide knobby tires and disc brakes, and several new models. Of course all the bikes fold easier than ever for convenient travel or storage. The RackStand can be seen in use here as a stand for the two lower bikes.
A new head tube design for 2016 allows for internal headsets, while new graphics give the bikes an updated look.
After being previewed at last year’s show, Montague’s first belt drive folding bike is now in production.
It wouldn’t be a trip to Las Vegas without visiting the old town!
Our Taiwanese distributor Yark even came to Interbike this year. Thanks for coming to visit us Harry, and a big Thank You to everyone who came out to make this a great show!
Look for the 2016 line of Montague folding bikes later this year.
