MONTAGUE Paratrooper Highline Folding Mountain Bike

  • £1,699.00


The Paratrooper Highline is a true cross country machine. 27.5 inch wheels provide superior rolling ability over obstacles and rough terrain. A Rockshox fork and hydraulic disc brakes satisfy the true XC rider looking for convenience.

Like all Montague bikes, the Highline is designed to fit on the bus or train, and easily in your car trunk or boat.

DirectConnect™ Folding System

New for 2016 is the DirectConnect folding system, which removes the quick release from the top tube, provides an easier folding experience and larger clamping surface between the two halves of the frame. A flip of the quick release lever and your bike folds to a compact size.

Folding Integrated Technology

The Paratrooper Highline frame is designed around another patented system that allows the bike to fold without any breaks in the frame’s tubing. Not only does this make it easier to fold, but it makes Montague bikes the strongest folding bike on the market. The Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.) is based around the same frame construction concepts as serious full suspension downhill bikes.

27.5″ Wheels

The Paratrooper Highline features 27.5″ wheels, a slightly larger diameter than the traditional 26″ mountain bike wheel. The size rolls over obstacles easier, and provides a larger contact point with the ground, both ideal for off road riding.

2x10 Drivetrain

The Paratrooper Highline is equipped with a two ring crankset, a simpler and lighter weight setup than the traditional triple chainring. The 2x10 drivetrain offers more reliable shifting and more ground clearance for obstacles. With the ability to use all ten gears with either ring, cross chaining is a thing of the past. As a result, very little gear range is compromised.

Hydraulic Disc Brakes

Tektro hydraulic disc brakes with 160mm rotors provide amazing stopping power. Perfect for gravity defying rides through the mountains. The sealed system keeps dirt and grime out of the brake’s moving parts while the hydraulic actuated caliper makes for lightning fast brake response.

SETUP
All Montague bikes come '95% ready to ride' which means some minor assembly is required before you can take your new Montague bike out for a first ride.

Whilst this is generally within the realms of most competent home mechanics, our recommendation is always that you get your bike set up for you by your local independent bike shop.
Most have reasonable charges for an initial assembly and check-over (generally known as a PDI, or Pre-Delivery Inspection) and you can be sure that gears, brakes and other fine-tuning will be fully sorted for you.
It's also good to get to know them and see what other products and services they can offer.
When making your purchase, you can designate your local bike shop as the delivery address if you prefer. However, please book your assembly and checkover with them first and ensure that direct delivery to them is OK, as some have limited storage space and busy workshop schedules. If you need delivery to be on, or near, a particular date, please just email us after purchase and we will arrange this as close as possible.
