The classic folding mountain bike from Montague, the Paratrooper is tough, rugged, and ready for anything. Its patented folding design was developed under a grant from DARPA to allow airborne soldiers to drop out of airplanes and into combat.

The Paratrooper offers 24 speeds, front suspension, mechanical disc brakes, and the RackStand for hauling gear. Tackle any terrain, carry your gear, and fold to stash in your trunk.

Why Montague?

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.
