“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 Paratrooper Pro bike is built like a tank, folds like a Swiss Army knife, and weighs less than body armor.

When I took the bike for a 5-mile off-road spin on Long Island, it handled fantastically whether climbing hills (the 27 gears came in handy), jumping ditches, coasting down steep slopes, or grinding through thick mud. It performs on pavement, too, especially when its suspension lock is engaged and the shock-absorbing front fork stays steady.

At first glance you might not think this 26-inch frame could fold into a 36 x 28 x 12–inch bundle, and it takes less than half a minute and just two lever flips.”

Popular Mechanics

“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.”

10 reviews for Paratrooper Pro

  1. 5 out of 5

    So glad I chose this bike! It’s an amazing mountain bike with a strong frame that holds up on any kind of trail in any kind of weather. The lockout feature on the suspension fork was the deciding factor for me between the Paratrooper and the Pro.

  2. 5 out of 5

    What an incredible machine! Literally am looking for any excuse to ride. The convenience of being able to fold in half is worth every penny. Very light weight, handles like a dream, stops on a dime and keeps this ridiculously looking smile on my face whenever I accelerate. Very fast off the line. Very happy to be living a healthy lifestyle thanks to all the fun I continue to have with the Paratrooper Pro. Highly recommend!

    Superbike! For traveling (workhome) it is a bit heavy but that’s all, putting in and out the front wheel is a thing to practice but one you learned it it is easy!

  4. 5 out of 5

    I’ve had my bike for almost 4 years now and have taken it with me around the world to Copenhagen, Shanghai, Taiwan, and Istanbul, and besides the obvious of it being MUCH easier to travel with (e.g., throw it in the back of my small Golf and drive out to the mountains to bike), it’s only recently had any small drivetrain issues, and that’s due to me falling over on the trails a few too many times! Overall it’s a very reliable and easy-to-maintain bike. When I use it to commute I ride with the suspension locked so it’s almost as fast and easy to ride as a commuter bike, and then I just pack it up and bring it into my office for ease. I only wish this model came with a rear rack back when I bought it!

    Some tips:
    -Grab some affordable folding pedals off of amazon for the complete folding package
    -Get some mudguards if you’re going off-trail

    I’ve had a Paratrooper since 2007 and I can’t say enough how much I’ve loved that bike. Due to the quality craftsmanship it is still a great bike but I decided I want to upgrade with new bells and whistles in the Paratrooper Pro. It was a good decision. The new DirectConnect latch creates a solid connection and makes folding faster than ever. It gives the bike a clean, sharp look with the flat black finish. The new folding engineering is tremendous and meets the high standards that have been the hallmark of Montague from the beginning. I really wanted to try the RackStand and it’s ingenious. I’ve just started getting out and enjoying my new bike but I know I’ll have a great time on it for many years to come. Once you order your Montague folding bike you’ll wonder how you got by without one before.

    My wife bought me the Paratrooper Pro as a gift. Very impressive! It gives an amazing ride with a very stiff frame and there is no compromise because it folds. I’ve become very fast folding and unfolding it and the ease of transporting it in my car makes my choice to use it a no brainer. She hit a homerun with this gift!

    I bought two Paratrooper Pros to fit in my plane. I wanted something that would be good on rugged terrain but also could ride into towns with smoother roads. The suspension fork with lock-out handles all of it very well. What I didn’t expect was that I love it so much that I use it as an excuse to go mountain biking much more than before. These are world-class bikes!

  8. 4 out of 5

    I rode a Paratrooper and a Pro at a shop in the city before buying from them (NYCeWheels in NY). The Pro is definitely the better bike for riding on road. I wanted suspension and wide tires so I could do off-road trails but also something that was a sort of hybrid. I think the fork and especially the tires make this bike pretty good for both. It rolls nicer on pavement than the original Paratrooper. The rack is a really cool feature but I usually take it off if I’m going into the woods (it can come off when you open the wheel quick release).

  9. 5 out of 5

    Amazing, fun ride! Durable build and easy to fold. Definitely recommend.

  10. 5 out of 5

    Excellent bike! I’ve had the Pro since last spring and have tested it on trails across northern New England. The great strength in the frame allows it to cover any terrain. It rides better than my old non-folding mountain bike.
