The Montague Corporation of Cambridge, Mass. has a long history with folding electric bikes.
Back in the early 2000’s, their folding Paratrooper bike (designed for the US military) was chosen to showcase the ground-breaking Wavecrest Tidalforce electric motor systems.
The Tidalforce M750 had a unique design with a 750W rear hub motor and a 36V Ni-hm battery pack mounted in the front wheel hub – a cool idea that never got off the ground but was popular with early-adapters of e-bike technology.
Montague’s sturdy build and and easy folding made the “Biontague Paratrooper” one of our best selling bikes from 2006 to 2013.
There are still quite a few of them out there on the roads.
Montague spent years designing and refining its vision for the perfect full-size folding electric bike.
The new Montague M-E1 is the result of that effort.
With full size 700c wheels, front suspension, and standard components, the M-E1 offers the same ride quality as a non-folding e-bike, but can be stored in the closet, train, or car trunk, keeping it safe from theft and out of the elements.
