The Paratrooper Highline: A Folding Bike for Backcountry Exploration


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

Originally conceived for use by military paratroopers dropping into combat, Montague folding bikes represent the ultimate in rugged portability. The Paratrooper Highline is equipped with a 20-speed Shimano drivetrain, hydraulic disc brakes, and Rockshox suspension to provide exceptional off-road performance. 27.5″ wheels and wide 2.1″ tires match those found on the industry’s top cross-country trail bikes. It can take you into remote backcountry 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 standard components make repairs and customizations possible at any bike shop. The Paratrooper Highline retails for $1,245.00.

“The Paratrooper Highline gets you to the trailhead and into the outdoors as quickly as possible without any of the hassles of transporting and storing your bike. It can stay in the car trunk waiting for those moments when you can get away.” said Jonathan Vandenberg, Product Manager at Montague Bikes. “Unlike other folding bike companies, we focus on performance and ride quality first. The Highline is made to be ridden in all conditions. It can compete with the industry’s best mountain bikes while offering something they cannot – convenience.”

The Paratrooper Highline 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.
