Montague Paratrooper Folding Mountain Bike Features
When folded up, Montague Paratrooper 24 Speed Folding Mountain Bike takes up a compact shape which will easily fit inside your luggage to take along on a car or plane but when unfolded it turns into a full-sized mountain bike. The compactness of the folded bike can easily be judged from the fact that it folds up into almost 50% of the actual size. The lightweight aluminum frame is built to last you decades and is simple to fold and unfold so that you can easily transport or store it when it’s not being ridden.
One of the major selling points is the superior control over the bike through the Shimano trigger shifters which allow you to make shifts between an extensive range of 24 speeds. The wide range of speeds means that the bike is fully capable of being ridden on any kind of terrain and on inclined slopes with large incline angles. Also appreciable are the more advanced mechanical disc brakes installed on it rather than the cheaper pull brakes on most bikes. The benefit of these types of brakes are that they are pretty straightforward to use and to maintain while also ensuring a stopping power that’s reliable for all weather and terrain conditions.
To add to the superior and faster performance of the bike on all terrains, the folding bike uses much thicker tires than what you will find on most. Where the standard is 1.9” for most folding bikes, this one uses 2.4” Kenda tires. Not only do they make the ride safer by increasing the traction, they also make your ride quicker and smoother.
Also impressive is the 4-in-1 rackstand which includes all the accessories when taking long trips on the bike. It will include a kickstand, a cargo rack to carry your stuff when you’re on the go, mudguard and also a work stand. You can even remove the cargo rack if you want to shed some extra weight and make your ride even faster than it already is.
