Design Philosophy

Montague Corporation, headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, is a company devoted to the design and production of bicycles that incorporate Folding Integrated Technology (F.I.T.™), a revolutionary system deemed to be one of the next-generation trends in the bicycle industry.

 

In 1987 David Montague, while in graduate school at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, formed the Montague Corporation - a company focused on designing and producing full-size, high-performance bicycles that fold -- bicycles that sacrifice nothing in performance and still provide the folding benefit for space saving convenience. The first bicycle designed by Montague was dubbed the "Montague BiFrame" for its patented Concentrus system, which unites the two parts of the frame with concentric seat tubes, one nested inside the other. Since then, Montague Corporation has never hit the brakes, winning numerous awards along the way, including the Popular Mechanic's Design & Engineering Award.

 

In 1997, Montague won a two-year grant from the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), who recognized the importance of the folding technology, to work with the United States Marines in developing the Tactical Electric No Signature (TENS) Mountain bike. For this project Montague developed a new folding design, enabling the bike to fold faster for Paratrooper exit from military aircraft while also increasing its load bearing capacity. This gave rise to the Paratrooper®, Montague’s non-electric Military Mountain Bike.

 

Montague has recently partnered with General Motors to design and manufacture the HUMMER Tactical Mountain Bike, a version of the military bike that folds to fit in the back of the new H2. This partnership demonstrates how Montague is spearheading a new and innovative approach.

 

In 1996, the BMW/Montague Mountain bike was chosen as the Official Mountain Bike of the Summer Olympic Games in Atlanta. These bikes were featured in the closing ceremonies of the 1996 Olympics. Montague bicycles are also distributed through high-end consumer catalogs such as Sharper Image, Neiman Marcus, Hammacher Schlemmer and National Geographic.

 

In 1999 Montague launched a consumer line of bikes, the X-Series™, based on the original Military Bike design. Due to the success of the X-Series™ and the publicity surrounding the DARPA development, there was an overwhelming demand for the original Military Bike. Montague decided to manufacture and launch the Paratrooper® for professional and civilian use.

 

Montague is continually expanding its product line and partnerships and is rapidly folding its way into car trunks, planes, boats, closets, and other compact storage spaces around the globe.
