Information and specifications

In 1995, David Montague was commissioned by the American Department of Defence to design a tactical means of transportation. Hanging from their parachutes, including rucksack as well as folding strong mountain bike, this design had to provide the soldiers with rapidly deployable mobility in conflict areas. In army green, of course. Eventually, this bike was produced and deployed in military operations. The Paratrooper was born! Up to the present time all kinds of sportive cyclists in many countries ride Paratroopers to their full satisfaction. It is not without reason that the enormous versatility of the Paratrooper has been discovered.

This bike has turned out to be a real masterpiece because the foldable dimensions have not been changed and still a larger wheel size has been placed for the real serious mountain bike ride. The 27.5 inch wheels provide the perfect traction and speed for the more fanatical mountain biker who still finds it important enough that the Montagues are foldable. The 2x10 gear set changes gears superfast. All patents are installed except for the rear rack because it no longer fits. The Paratrooper Highline is a true example of a great mountain bike which can still be folded.

The success of this folding mountain bike is based on the bike’s strength and its super-fast folding system. The frames are made from heavily reinforced aluminium, have shock-absorbing front forks and the bikes are provided with sturdy disc brakes. And the bikes distinguish themselves by the assembly of the bike’s components.

There are various models: the Paratrooper, the Paratrooper Pro and the Paratrooper Highline, all equipped with strong aluminium frames with solid parts. The patented rear rack (except for the Highline with 27.5 inch wheel size) can be used for stable storage, parking and for maintenance purposes.

Mountain biking – forestry area – security and surveillance – cycling holidays – Also ideal for storing in a car boot, for train, boat, mobile home and camper.
