The Paratrooper Elite, the highest performance folding mountain bike in the world. The 27.5″ wheels allow this bike to roll over the toughest single track, and still fold into the trunk.
Epic mountain rides.
Fast single track.
Technical cross country.
The DirectConnect folding system 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 of 36″ x 28″x 12.”
The Paratrooper Elite frame is designed around another patented system that allows the bike to fold without any breaks in the frame’s tubing. Not only does this make it easier to fold, but it makes Montague bikes the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around the same frame construction concepts as serious full suspension downhill bikes.
The Paratrooper Elite features top-of-the-line components including a Shimano XT drivetrain and hydraulic disc brakes, a RockShox Reba RL suspension fork, and a Shimano Hollowtech 2 crankset. Together with the Elite frame, riders have the performance they need to tackle any trail. You won’t know you’re riding a folding bike when you hit the trails on the Paratrooper Elite. Roll off the trail and the Elite will fit right in your trunk or closet.
The Paratrooper Highline features 27.5″ wheels, a 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 and rough terrain.
