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.

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.

Larger than the traditional 26″ mtb wheel, the extremely lightweight 27.5″ Mavic wheels on the Elite roll over obstacles easier, and
have a larger contact point with the ground.
