The F.I.T.™ system developed by Montague engineers, and found on the Paratrooper, uses a design that does not cut any of the frame’s tubing. This design provides the strongest folding bike on the market.
Developed by Montague for military use, the technology is covered under numerous patents worldwide. No tools are required to fold and unfold Montague bicycles. Simply remove the front wheel and unlock one quick release. This can be done in a matter of seconds allowing the bike to be stored with ease on the side of an LAV or tank and in the back of a HMMWV or police cruiser.
The Paratrooper is equipped with mechanical
disc brakes. They offer quicker response, more
stopping power, and better performance in
wet weather than rim brakes.

Our bikes use only standard full-size bicycle geometry proven by millions of riders around the world. Unlike small wheel folding bikes where the distance between the seat and the handlebars has been shortened to allow for a small folded size, Montague bikes use standard top tube lengths, standard head tube angles, standard seat tube angles, and standard chain stay lengths. All this adds up to a tremendous ride quality only found on Montague bikes.

Montague engineers don’t stop after designing great frame geometries. Materials used in frame construction are equally important. Our engineers, looking to the aircraft industry, have developed state of the art custom drawn 7005 series, aircraft grade aluminum tubing that is used on every bike we sell. It would be easier and less expensive to use the same old round steel tubes everyone else uses, but then our bikes would ride like everyone else’s, an option we can’t accept.
Our trend-setting frame materials are then welded together in our state of the art welding facility making a frame that is stiff both laterally and in torsion.
Finally, our frames are finished with a 5-layer anti-corrosion finishing process allowing them to last longer and look better. All this adds up to a frame that will last a lifetime and is guaranteed to do so.
