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.

The matt green army colour is still one of the most popular mountain bikes of the Montague series because its standard equipment includes all the patents. The quick folding system, the safe and quick wheel blockages and last but not least the unique frame. The versatility of the bike and, of course, because it is such a cool bike, makes the Paratrooper so popular. The 26-inch wheels are strong and compact. In short, ride it into town to show off or take it for a mountain bike ride.

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.
