Customer Testimonials

“This bike lives up to the hype. It features Montague’s patented folding system, and with a flip of the quick-release lever, it can fit into the trunk of your car or closet in 20 seconds.

Montague’s top-of-the-line folding bike, killing it in the convenience department and still ideal for race day, technical cross country, and fast single-track mountain rides.”

The Robb Report

“These aren’t the typical folding bikes with the circus wheels. These are bicycles made for athletes with standard size wheels and all the bells and whistles you could want that conveniently fold up and can be stored in your apartment or trunk of your car.

With an emphasis on performance,… Montague Bikes is revolutionizing the folding bicycle for all cyclists.”

DirectConnect™ Folding System

New since 2016 is the DirectConnect folding system, which removes the quick release from the top tube, provides an easier folding experience and larger clamping surface between the two halves of the frame. A flip of the quick release lever and your bike folds to a compact size.

27.5″ Wheels

The Paratrooper Elite features 27.5″ wheels, a slightly larger diameter than the traditional 26″ mountain bike wheel. The size rolls over obstacles easier, and provides a larger contact point with the ground, both ideal for off road riding.
