A SWISS ARMY KNIFE ON WHEELS
VERSATILE. AFFORDABLE. ADAPTABLE.
Like its namesake lizard, the Santa Cruz Chameleon adapts at-will to suit its environment and the rider. Twenty-nine or 27.5-plus wheels, geared or single-speed, affordable aluminum or high-grade carbon, this changable hardtail utilizes a suite of simple, swappable dropouts to convert from aggro trail charger to single-speed racer to husky bikepacking mule, or anything in between.
FRAMED TO PERFECTION
Whether you go alloy or carbon, either version of the Chameleon features spectacular craftsmanship that blends a forgiving materials tune with high pedaling efficiency and light weight. The result is a bike that rides great and delivers the fun.
Wheel size, frame materials, and driveline choices speak to certain aspects of adaptability, how you decide to ride the Chameleon speaks to another. Depending on setup and skill level, the Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—from street hooning to aggressive trail riding to hitting the jumps and everything in between.
LIFETIME WARRANTY AND SUPPORT
Like all Santa Cruz bikes, Chameleon comes with a Lifetime Warranty on it's frame--whether alloy or carbon--and Reserve carbon rims if you go for that option. What's more, it comes with the backing of the Santa Cruz Rider Support crew and our legendary warranty manager Willie. And when we say legendary, we mean dude-has-a-bobblehead-legendary. Seriously, Google him.
