The Montague Paratrooper is a full-size mountain bike that offers all the features of a regular mountain bike with the added benefit of the folding design. This means you can take it with you nearly anywhere you go, and you don't need to buy a hitch or bike rack to take it to the trailhead. Off-road adventurers will love it for its adjustable compression fork and trail-ready tires. Bikepackers, singletrackers, and campers will love it for its included cargo rack. It also has a DirectConnect latch that ensures the bike won't fold up and collapse while you're riding. And, unlike a regular bike, you can store a folding bike in a closet or compartment so it's out of sight in your home or RV.


Quick and Easy Folding Design


Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike Being Folded

The Paratrooper takes approximately 20 seconds to fold up. You can do it in 4 easy steps. Undo the latch on the back of the seat post and rotate the cargo basket under the rear tire to convert it to a bike stand. Open the quick-release latch on the front hub and pull the spring to remove the front wheel. Open the CLIX DirectConnect latch under the top tube, and fold the bike in half. Use the included hook-and-loop strap to secure the front wheel to the folded bike.


The bike weighs just 32 lbs so it's convenient to carry wherever you go. It's easy to haul up and down stairs or place in your trunk or hatch for weekend excursions or after-work getaways.

Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike

  1. Shimano Acera 3-Speed Front Derailleur -
    Montague Paratrooper Front Derailleur
    The Shimano Acera 3-speed front derailleur shifts the top part of the chain between the 3 front sprockets. It works with the Shimano Deore 8-speed rear derailleur to give the drivetrain a total of 24 speeds for you to choose from. The top swing derailleur creates a small profile so you can mount a water bottle to the seat post without obstruction. It's also dual pull, so the shifter cable can be routed to the shifter from either the top or the bottom of the derailleur. Routing from the top is great for mountain bikes because it helps prevent the shifter cable from getting hit by a rock or covered in mud.

  2. Shimano Deore 8-Speed Rear Derailleur -
    Montague Paratrooper Rear Derailleur
    The Shimano Deore 8-speed rear derailleur shifts the bottom part of the chain between the 8 rear sprockets. It has a low-profile design with a short pulley cage that provides clearance above rocks, weeds, and other objects that you could potentially hit when riding hilly terrain. The lightning-quick action is perfect when you need to make sudden gear changes. It's constructed of lightweight aluminum that is great for off-road riding, and it's designed to help prevent chain drop and chain slap. It works with the Shimano Acera 3-speed front derailleur to give the drivetrain a total of 24 speeds for you to choose from.

  3. 26" Kenda Slant Six Tires -
    Montague Paratrooper Tires
    The 26" Kenda Slant Six tires are constructed of a lightweight, dual rubber compound that is designed for riding trails. A hard compound in the center tread reduces rolling resistance so they're fast on packed surfaces. A softer compound on the corners improves grip and lets the tires float over loose terrain. They also have materials under the tread and between the beads that prevents punctures caused by rocks and other trail hazards. The wheels have double-walled rims that provide increased support when compared with single-walled rims so they're better suited for off-road riding. The tubes have Schrader valves with cores that are easy to remove.

  4. RackStand Cargo Rack and Kickstand -
    Montague Allston Cargo Basket
    The RackStand is a sturdy steel cargo rack over the rear wheel that lets you carry your gear. This eases your burden so you don't have to carry your gear in a clumsy backpack. You can convert the RackStand into a kickstand by simply opening the latch that attaches it to the seat post and rotating it underneath the tire. This also give you support under the bike for cleaning and maintenance. The fender for the rear wheel is also integrated into the RackStand.

  5. Mountain Aero Saddle with Center Gap -
    Montague Paratrooper Saddle
    The cushioned Mountain Aero saddle has a center gap that helps reduce pressure on your sensitive areas. This helps make it comfortable to ride on even for long periods of time. It's also easy to adjust to accommodate your height, and you can do it in seconds. Just loosen the quick-clamp, slide the seat post to your desired height, and close the quick-clamp.

  6. Kalloy Aluminum Frame with 5-Layer Brushed Coating -
    Montague Paratrooper Frame
    The 18" frame is made out of 6061 aircraft-grade Kalloy aluminum tubing that is lightweight yet stronger than standard steel tubing. It's great for riding over rocks, through ditches, and navigating other off-road hazards. It also has a 5-layer brushed coating that helps prevent corrosion so it's great to use in wet conditions.

  7. Seat Post Hinge with CLIX DirectConnect Latch -
    Montague HInge
    The large hinge on the seat post connects the front and rear parts of the frame, keeping the point of articulation off of the top tube. This prevents the frame from developing a potential weak point as can happen with other folding bikes that are hinged on the top tube. It features a CLIX DirectConnect latch that automatically secures the hinge in place when the bike is unfolded. This prevents the bike from accidentally folding up and collapsing while you are riding. The fork also has a quick-release latch that lets you remove the front wheel in seconds so you can fold the bike up fast.

  8. Shimano Rapid Fire Plus Trigger Shifters -
    Montague Paratrooper Trigger Shifters
    The Shimano Rapid Fire Plus trigger shifters are located on the right side and left side of the handlebars next to the hand brakes. They let you easily shift gears up and down using your thumbs and index fingers without having to move your hands off the grips. The shifter on the right shifts between 9 speeds on the rear derailleur. The shifter on the left shifts between 3 speeds on the front derailleur. An optical display on each shifter lets you easily see what gear you are in.

  9. Handlebar Brake Levers -
    Montague Paratrooper Brake Levers
    The handlebar brake levers are located in front of each hand grip so you can steer and brake without having to move your hands. The right hand brake lever stops the front wheel and the left hand brake lever stops the rear wheel. The soft, ergonomic handles are easy to grip so your hands won't slide off them while steering.

  10. SR Suntour XCT Adjustable Compression Fork -
    Montague Paratrooper Suspension Fork
    The SR Suntour XCT coil spring fork lets you manually adjust the compression so you get the smoothest ride possible over rocky trails as well as smooth pathways. The black PRELOAD knobs on each side of the fork adjust the stiffness of the compression. For pathways, turn each knob clockwise to increase compression damping so that the fork has little bounce. For rough terrain, turn each knob counterclockwise to reduce compression damping so that it bounces easier.

  11. Tektro Novella Mechanical Disc Brakes -
    Montague Paratrooper Disk Brakes
    The Tektro Novella mechanical front and rear disc brakes provide greater breaking power and are more suited for hard trail riding when compared with rim V-brakes. They have 160-mm drilled and slotted rotors that attach directly to the wheel hubs and squeeze the pads from both sides of the tire. This ensures your brake pads are always effective, even when hitting large holes and riding in wet conditions. And they won't put wear and tear on your tire's rims like V-brakes do. The single-piece bodies are made of aluminum that resists the heat build-up that many disc brakes can develop with extended use. They also have wear indicators on the pads that identify when to adjust them or replace them.

  12. Front and Rear Fenders -
    Montague Fenders
    The Paratrooper is equipped with fenders over the front and rear tires. They help prevent water, mud, and road grime from splashing up and soiling your clothes or splashing onto the clothes of your fellow riders. They also help reduce the amount of grit that can get into your bike's moving components. The front fender is constructed of lightweight yet durable plastic that won't break when hit with rocks or other road debris. The rear fender is integrated into the cargo rack and will be located under the wheel when the rack is rotated for use as a kickstand.

  • Do Montague Folding Bikes Come Fully Assembled?

I've attached a short video review that shows how easy it is to fold this bike up for storage, as well as some of the other great features!

  • Dimensions and Weight of Shipping Box for Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike
    The Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike # PARDC18 comes in a 39" x 30" x 14" package and when it's shipped will weigh around 48 lbs while the bike itself weighs in at 32 lbs so we are looking at about 16 lbs of packaging that is added to help protect the bike. To be perfectly honest my contact at Montague said this packaging has helped and they are always looking for ways to improve the packaging but it isn't impossible to get reports of a bike being damaged because of the lack of care handling...

    The Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike - 24 Speed - 26" Wheels - 18" Frame # PARDC18 has much more aggressive tires and is overall a better bike for off-roading. The Montague Navigator Folding Bike - 27 Speed - 700c Wheels - 19" Aluminum Frame # NAVDC19 is better-suited for on-road use since it has street tires and gearing for commuting.

  • Recommended Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike For a Woman That is 5' Tall
    I do have another recommendation as the Montague Paratrooper Folding Bike # PARDC18 has an 18" frame and is designed for riders that are 5'3" to 5'10" tall. I recommend the Montague Paratrooper Pro Folding Bike # PROBLK16 with the 16" frame. The smaller frame is designed for riders who are 4'8" to 5'2" tall. This puts your wife at 5' tall right in the middle of the designed rider height. This bike also has 27 speeds and is a little lighter which should make it easier for her to ride as well.
