Fast & Easy Folding

Folding a Montague bike for travel or storage can be done in seconds with just two quick release levers.

On or Off-Road

Montague has a wide range of folding bikes to handle any terrain. Including the industry’s only folding mountain bikes.

From the Experts

“Few bicycle companies need to measure the size of an aircraft door when designing a new model. But Montague Corp., based in Cambridge, Mass., did exactly that when the Pentagon said it needed a lightweight, foldable bike that special-operations forces could carry as they jumped out of airplanes into enemy territory.

US forces found the bikes ideal for moving quietly and without using scarce fuel. Word spread throughout the world’s tightly knit military community.”

Time Magazine

“the Montague adds a new dimension to escaping into the wild. Its patented folding design was developed by the US military to allow soldiers to strap the bike to their chest before parachuting deep behind enemy lines.

It’s incredibly simple to unfold – a single sturdy pin controls the hinge – and it has 27 gears, mechanical disc brakes and full front shocks to help you make mincemeat of hostile territory. It also zips neatly into a bag which then fits into the boot, so weekend warriors don’t have to worry about getting their car dirty on the way home.”

The Guardian

“Montague Tactical Military Mountain Bikes are full size mountain bikes (MB) that provide an inexpensive alternative to walking; have enhanced off-body load bearing capabilities; a high level of maneuverability and can compact to a portable size in less than 30 seconds.

Currently, they are deployed in the US, Middle East and Europe and are ideal for patrolling, security, rapid response and jumping.”

Military Toughness

Montague Paratrooper tactical military mountain bikes are the best bikes for the military, bar none. Under funding from DARPA, Montague developed a hybrid electric mountain bike, a derivative of which is used as an armed forces bicycle around the world today.

Historically there have been a number of Army bicycles, Navy bicycles, USMC – U.S. Marine bicycles, and bicycles for veterans. There have even been Swiss Army and Swiss Military bikes used more recently. The Montague is the latest and most advanced in the line.

No other bicycle has the versatility of the Montague Paratrooper with its ability to withstand heavy abuse, easily fold up, and drop from an airplane for ground transportation. It can even carry an off-body load and increase a soldier’s gear hauling ability.

Lifetime Warranty

We are so confident in our folding frame design that we offer a lifetime warranty so you can feel confident too. Frames and non-suspension forks are covered for the life of the bike's original owner.
