This is the mountain bike that has it all.
The Chameleon A R+ can hit dirt or asphalt, mountain or city, geared or singlespeed—the moniker Chameleon has never rung truer than on this Santa Cruz classic.
On either 29-inch or 27.5+ wheels, the Chameleon shifts from trail-worthy hardtail to bikepacker to garbage-weather weapon of choice with simple, elegant aplomb. The wheel change is accomplished via interchangeable dropouts, and there's a singlespeed version for each wheel size. The Chameleon R 27+ comes equipped with a Fox Rhythm 34 120mm fork, along with a SRAM 1x NX groupset and Level brakes that offer solid performance in a mid-level package.
