Details

Santa Cruz Bicycles took the fun-loving, shreddy spirit and adjustability of the beloved aluminum Chameleon but evolved it into a lighter, faster, more advanced species - the all-new carbon Chameleon C. It’s a do-it-all hardtail that is as happy making the most of backyard booter (mis)adventures as it is fully-loaded with camp gear and a color-matched dangle mug.

The Carbon Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27.5+, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of simple, swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to single-speed racer to husky bikepacking mule, or anything in between.

The Chameleon C grants you the go-anywhere rollover and high speed of 29-inch Maxxis tires, or the lightness and handling of 27.5+ Maxxis tires, wrapped around either Race Face or Santa Cruz's own Carbon Reserve rims. To help keep your trajectory on track, a FOX 34 Float Rhythm fork soaks up the chop and precisely steers where you point it. SRAM’s GX Eagle drivetrain and Guide brakes perfectly complement one another, providing a huge 12-speed gear range to get you anywhere on the mountain, with the braking power to make sure you get back in one piece.

FEATURES
- Two bottle cage mounts (including option for a cargo cage mount under downtube)
- Convertible between 29 or 27.5+ wheels
- Geared and singlespeed dropouts (compatible with aluminum Chameleon, too)
- Clearance for up to 3.0” tires (27.5+) or 2.5” (29er)
- Internal brake and dropper routing
- Made for: Backyard trail thrashing and backcountry soul-searching
- At home on: cross country to crossing countries
