The high quality 2016 Montague Paratrooper Pro MTB 27 Speed Folding Mountain Bike is a full size folding mountain bike. It was initially designed and built solely for the military purposes, as the name suggests. The bike was made to withstand the impact if the bike was to be released from a plane via a parachute and carry a fully prepared soldier on to a mountainous terrain.
Multi-purpose Rack stand
The Montague paratrooper features a multi-purpose rack stand. This serves as a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and a work stand. It is integrated with a quick release system. This allows it to rotate under the rear wheel on a specially invested axle mount.
When it comes in a lower position, it can then work as a kickstand or work stand. It also makes the folding/ unfolding of the bike much quicker and easier. It also helps in allowing the folded bike to be stored in an upright position.
Patented folding technology
The frame of the paratrooper pro has been designed around a certified and patented folding system. The design has features which eliminate the need to break the frame while folding it into a compact size. This makes the folding/ unfolding of the bike much easier, and also makes it the strongest available model in the market.
The Folding Integrated Technology i.e. (FIT) is based around the solid frame construction. Hence the bicycle is perfectly fit for serious full suspension downhill rides.
