Montague Launches New Folding Touring Bike for Travelers on the Go
Navigator Provides Full-Sized Ride for Miles of Adventure with a Compact Fold for Easy Storage
CAMBRIDGE, MA – June 29, 2016 – Montague Bikes, the leader in full-size folding bikes, has launched the all-new Navigator, a multi-use bicycle designed to deliver a comfortable riding experience for travelers setting off on their next adventure. Its full-size wheels and folding design offer the perfect solution to those looking for a versatile bike that can deliver top performance for all-day rides and pack for easy travel.
Well-equipped with a 27-speed Shimano drivetrain, disc brakes, and wide 35mm tires, the Navigator offers a smooth yet responsive ride. The wide gear range is perfect for long rides and hilly terrain while disc brakes offer superb stopping power in all conditions. The rugged semi-knobby tires are made to handle mixed road surfaces, bike camping, commuting, and gravel. Handlebar height can also be adjusted with just the click of a button thanks to the patented Octagon steering system. Raising the bars can fit the bike to a variety of riders and provides an upright position to reduce stress on the back and neck.
The Navigator also comes equipped with Montague’s patented Eurobike award winning RackStand which serves as a 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 is ideal for carrying beach towels, picnic baskets or fully loaded panniers. Anything to make the days’ journey more enjoyable.
When folded, the bike compacts to just 36 inches wide, 28 inches high and 12 inches deep, ideal for car trunks and tight storage spaces. It also weighs only 29 lbs, making it very light and portable. The bike’s industry standard components make repairs and customizations possible at any bike shop.
Like all Montague bikes, the Navigator 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 Navigator retails for $959.00.
“The Navigator is ideal for anyone looking to bring a bike on their next getaway.” said Ryan Walas, Director of Marketing for Montague Bikes. “We focus on performance and ride quality first, so you’re really going to enjoy being on this bike even though it can fold in a matter of seconds. It’s loaded with features so it can handle anything from leisurely rides to long distance touring.”
The Navigator 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.
