The Paratrooper frame is designed around a patented folding system. This design eliminates the need to break the frame in order to fold the bike. Not only does this make folding easier but it makes this bike the strongest folding bike on the market.

This is a great and rugged bike. Its been a faithful companion with on trips to Yukon, NWT, Nunavut and it has survived the dust of 4 tours of duty to Burning Man. I also use it for my every day bike in the summer. Very well built and easy to fold and unfold. I love the fact that its mountain bike- so trails are not a problem.
