Montague Revolutionizes the Mountain Bike with Paratrooper Elite


Montague Bikes, the leader in full-size folding bikes, has launched the all-new Paratrooper Elite, a high performance mountain bike designed to handle serious trails and fold easily for transportation and storage. Never before has owning a mountain bike been so convenient.

Originally conceived for use by military paratroopers dropping into combat, Montague folding bikes represent the ultimate in rugged portability. The Paratrooper Elite is equipped with a 30-speed Shimano XT drivetrain, XT hydraulic disc brakes, and Rockshox Reba suspension to provide exceptional trail performance. Its 27.5″ Mavic wheels and wide 2.1″ Maxxis tires match those found on the industry’s top cross-country and downhill bikes. It can roll over obstacles with ease while still folding for the car trunk, closet or train when the ride is over.

In less than 20 seconds this bike compacts to just 36 inches wide, 28 inches high and 12 inches deep, ideal for car trunks and tight storage spaces. Montague’s patented DirectConnect™ folding system does not break the frame tubing like other folders, creating an extremely rigid bike that you would never image can fold. The bike’s industry standard components make repairs and customizations possible at any bike shop. The Paratrooper Elite retails for $2,449.00.

“The Paratrooper Elite allows you to avoid the hassle and stress of car racks, traveling with your bike, and storing it at home. It can be safely hidden in your trunk, always ready when you find time to ride.” said Ryan Walas, Director of Marketing for Montague Bikes. “Unlike other folding bike companies, we focus on performance and ride quality first. Our bikes are made to be ridden in all conditions, and the Elite can compete with the industry’s best mountain bikes while offering something they cannot – convenience.”

The Paratrooper Elite is part of Montague’s 11 new bike models that feature their patented folding technology. The bike line includes road and mountain models ranging from $639.95 to $2,449.00.
