Montague Launches New Folding Mountain Bike Ideal for Truckers

New Paratrooper Pro Provides Full-Sized Ride with a Compact Fold for Easy Storage

 

CAMBRIDGE, MA – May 18, 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 for truckers leading active lifestyles. Its full-size wheels and folding design offer the perfect solution to truckers looking to take a versatile bike on the road that can store easily in the truck’s cab.

The Paratrooper Pro comes with a 27-speed Shimano Deore drivetrain that offers 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 combined with multi-purpose tires the setup is great both on pavement and off-road. The standard 26-inch wheels make it capable of rolling over almost any obstacle.

When folded, the bike compacts to just 36 inches wide, 28 inches high and 12 inches deep, ideal for tight spaces, 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. It also comes equipped 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 Paratrooper Pro retails for $995.00.

“Truckers spend long hours sitting in the cab and many are looking to lead more active lifestyles while on the road.” said Ryan Walas, Director of Marketing for Montague Bikes. “The Paratrooper Pro is an ideal bike to fill this need as it provides a rugged and sturdy ride and a small and portable profile when folded. Wherever the road takes truckers, a Paratrooper Pro is the perfect complement to help them explore farther wherever they stop along the journey.”

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.
