So, in case you were sad because nobody thought to engineer a bike that's tough as nails but which can be folded and stored quickly and effortlessly, here's your dream come true, courtesy of Montague.

After you get used to the way the Montague Paratrooper Pro folds and unfolds, you will only need 20 seconds or so, to deploy or to collapse it. Once folded, the bike si easy to transport on a train or even metro, so its practicality increases dramatically for those who plan to use to for commuting.

The Montague Paratrooper Pro can take pretty much anything you would throw at it, from the urban asphalt to the roots and ruts of off-road trails. With a sturdy frame that rolls on a front fork with 100mm (3.9") of travel and strong wheels, the 31-lb (14 kg) Montague Paratrooper Pro is happy with off-road exploration, all-day single-track riding, remote bike camping, tackling rough terrain, or more casual urban use.

Add a 27-speed Shimano transmission with matching switchgear, Suntour cranks and forks, Kenda tires and all-disc brakes and you'll get a machine you can have fun with anywhere.

Paratrooper Pro also comes with a special-design cargo rack that has no less than six functions. It integrates a rear mudguard and serves as a luggage carrier, mudguard, kickstand, and work stand. Also, it helps to fold and store the Montague easier, thanks to an intuitive quick-release system.

With the F.I.T. feature (Folding Integrated Technology), the Paratrooper Pro offers military-grade folding system that is patent-protected and also proven in the toughest real-life scenarios.

Montague Paratrooper Pro comes with an MSRP of $995 (€890) which makes it a nice, affordable bike if you plan to pedal more than one or twice a year.
