Why a Folding Bike?
Folding bikes fit your lifestyle. Having the ability to fold your bike into a compact package in seconds allows you to store it easily in the home or office, and travel anywhere with your bike. It can fit in the car trunk, on the bus or train, and is perfect for your next trip.
We set out to create the highest performance folding bikes in the world. All Montague bikes use full-size wheels, standard components, and a folding design that doesn’t break any of the frame’s tubing. Our focus has always been on perfecting ride quality, handling, and comfort.
An SR Suntour suspension fork allows the
Paratrooper to glide over the obstacles,
roots, and rocks of off-road trails.

“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 Technology Magazine
