The Montague Paratrooper 24 speed folding bicycle was originally built exclusively for military use and is NOW available to Police Departments and civilians with a urge to go Military.
Strong as a tank, light as a daypack.
The Paratrooper was built to the following specifications:
+ Ground mobility that is tough enough to drop from a plane
+ Durable enough to traverse any terrain
+ Move at high speeds
+ Require minimal maintenance
+ Easy to fold into a portable size yet agile enough to unfold in seconds.
+ Rackstand Rear Rack
Until a few years ago, this military bike was only available within the US Department of Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.
But due to an overwhelming demand from hunters, smoke-jumpers, parachutists, and many other folks who enjoy getting off-the-beaten-track, Montague decided to manufacture the original Military Bike for police and civilian use.
Full-size, rugged mountain bike deployable on almost any terrain.
A stealth/minimal signature that is second only to a walking soldier.
Off body load bearing = transport of increased loads = lesser reliance on resupply.
Up to 75 miles daily range with low/no logistic support necessary.
Folds to 36" x 30" x 12" in under thirty seconds without the use of tools.
Easy to transport, you can take this bike anywhere - you can even jump with it!
Low initial cost with little to no maintenance required.
Front disk brakes give rapid and stronger braking power.
Equipped with industry standard wheels and components serviceable at any bike shop.
AIR DROP GROUND MOBILITY:
The Paratrooper Tactical Mountain Bike was designed as ground mobility for the paratrooper.
It is a sturdy, durable full size Mountain Bike, designed to fold so the bike can be dropped on a static line. Once on the ground the bike is unfolded and serves as effective, efficient and stealthy ground transportation, allowing easy evacuation upon completion of a mission.
LAV / RECONNAISSANCE SCOUT:
Using the Paratrooper Tactical Mountain Bike in conjunction with LAR's, allows the company increased mobility and security.
The Paratrooper Reconnaissance model folds so you can attach it to the side of vehicle and serves as back-up transportation.
The Paratrooper is a stealthy recon/scout vehicle able to travel with little to no thermal or acoustic signatures
ALTERNATIVE TO FOOT SOLDIER:
The Paratrooper Tactical Mountain Bike offers the most efficient form of human powered transportation available.
Soldiers on mountain bikes have off-body load bearing, can traverse any terrain, move at high speeds without breakdown, and can refuel themselves with local water and food.
It is also a great moral builder - the guys really enjoy traveling around on a bike rather than on foot.
LAW ENFORCEMENT / EMERGENCY:
Bicycles are a proven method of law enforcement and are being used increasingly by agencies throughout the country to patrol areas previously patrolled on foot or on horse.
The Paratrooper model folds to fit in the trunk of a police cruiser.
The officer can now drive to any location or park and can remove the bicycle from the trunk of the cruiser, unfold and begin patrolling otherwise hard to protect areas.
Tough, rugged, and ready for anything, this mountain bike is dropped from the sky to land prepared for action.
The speed of unfolding this bike for riding will blow you away.
No tools required to fold and stash in your Humvee.
The Paratrooper® comes equipped with front suspension, 24 speed EZ Fire Plus® shifters, and heavy duty double cage aluminum pedals to tackle the roughest terrain.
The Paratrooper® Tactical Bike uses all standard mountain bike wheels and components serviceable at any bike shop.
Clever integration of the patented CLIX System allows for the Paratrooper to be folded in under 20 seconds without the use of tools.
A flip of the CLIX quick release lever on the top tube and the bike folds to a compact size.
If you forget to retighten the QR after unfolding, a secondary lock prevents the frame from folding.
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.

1. Folding Pedals (if you take this option, you get both the standard pedals and the folding pedals2. RackStand
RackStand is a new concept in bicycle rack technology. It is a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and work stand all in one. When paired with a Montague folding bike, it also acts as a stand for the bike while folded, making it even easier to store your bike. A patent pending design allows the flip of a lever to rotate RackStand under the rear wheel. When in the lowered position, RackStand acts as a kickstand to hold the bike or a work stand to make easy drivetrain adjustments. Matching front fender included.
