The Paratrooper is one of the many folding mountain bikes that Montague offers.  Its patented folding design was developed and designed to allow airborne soldiers to drop out of airplanes and helicopters into combat.  The 24-speed Paratrooper is advanced with front and rear mechanical disc brakes with brake pad adjustment.  Known for its durability and load bearing capabilities, this bike has also developed a following with everyday commuters and weekend warriors.

CLIX Folding System

Clever integration of the patented CLIX System allows for the Paratrooper to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools. A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size.

Folding Integrated Technology

The Paratrooper frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around frame construction concepts designed for serious full suspension downhill bikes.
