Montague Launches New Folding Mountain Bike Ideal for Hunters

Paratrooper Pro Provides Full-Sized Ride with Unique Cargo Rack for Hauling Gear

 

CAMBRIDGE, MA – June 28, 2016 – Montague Bikes, the leader in full-size folding bikes, has launched the all-new Paratrooper Pro, a well-equipped mountain bike designed to deliver a rugged all-purpose riding experience to hunters looking to get themselves and their gear to their favorite hunting spots. Its folding design allows it to fit easily in a vehicles storage area while full-size wheels offer unmatched ride quality and off road capability.

The Paratrooper Pro is equipped with a 27-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain with plenty of gears for hills and a Suntour front suspension that delivers 100mm of travel to absorb the bumps of rough roads and trails. The fork can also lock to be rigid, and combines with multi-purpose tires that can handle a wide range of terrains. The 26-inch wheels make it capable of easily rolling over obstacles.

The Paratrooper Pro also comes with Montague’s patented Eurobike Award winning RackStand which serves as a standard cargo rack and mud guard when the bike is in use, converts into a kickstand when parked, and allows the bike to stand upright when folded. The RackStand has a wide base and sturdy construction allowing it to carry significant loads such as rifles, bows and camping gear.

When folded, the bike compacts to just 36 inches wide, 28 inches high and 12 inches deep, ideal for the back of an SUV, truck or car trunk, where storage is at as premium. It also weighs only 31 lbs, making it light and portable. Its industry standard components make repairs possible anywhere in the world.

Like all Montague bikes, the Paratrooper Pro includes the patented DirectConnect™ folding system that provides increased frame stiffness for superior ride quality, and can be folded and unfolded in less than 20 seconds. The Paratrooper Pro retails for $995.00.

“Hunters have unique challenges when making their way to their preferred hunting grounds.” said Ryan Walas, Director of Marketing for Montague Bikes. “They may have a significant amount of gear they need to fit in their vehicle and get to the site, and the terrain they travel can be unforgiving. The Paratrooper Pro, with its folded size, durability and load bearing capabilities can get them to and from those locations with relative ease.”

The Paratrooper Pro is part of Montague’s 11 all-new bike models for 2016 that feature the same folding frame design. The 2016 line-up includes six road and five mountain bikes ranging in price from $639.95 to $2,449.00.
