The classic folding mountain bike from Montague, the Paratrooper is tough, rugged, and ready for anything. Its patented folding design was developed under a grant from DARPA to allow airborne soldiers to drop out of airplanes and into combat.
Larger 27.5-inch wheels roll over any obstacle while a full Shimano XT drivetrain, Shimano XT hydraulic disc brakes, and Rockshox Reba suspension provide performance never before seen from a folding bike. Built upon the heritage of Montague’s Swissmilitary folding bikes, the Elite takes the mountain line to new heights.
