The Paratrooper Highline is a rugged 27.5″ wheel folding mountain bike with a 2×10 drivetrain. With fat tires and a wide range cassette, the Highline is built for after-work rides on your favorite trails and full-on weekend excursions in the mountains.
Cross country riding.
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 frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around frame construction concepts designed for serious full suspension downhill bikes.
The Paratrooper Highline 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.
The Paratrooper Highline is equipped with a two ring crankset, a simpler and lighter weight setup than the traditional triple chainring. The 2×10 drivetrain offers more reliable shifting and more ground clearance for obstacles. With the ability to use all ten gears with either ring cross chaining is a thing of the past. As a result, very little gear range is compromised.
Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors provide amazing stopping power. Perfect for gravity defying rides through the mountains. The sealed system keeps dirt and grime out of the brake’s moving parts while the hydraulic actuated caliper makes for both delicate modulation and lightning fast brake response
