Up Close...

The tin lizard has ascended the evolutionary ladder and is now a fully-imagined carbon fiber creature. It’s Darwinism in action.

We took the fun-loving, shreddy spirit and adjustability of the beloved aluminum Chameleon and added a lighter, faster, more advanced version of the species. 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. Two bottle cage mounts, including a triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube mean you can escape from the crowds, too.

The Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, 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.

Depending on setup and skill level, the Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around use. Going for maximum speed and rollability? Go 29er. Riding mostly loose terrain? Get some Plus tires that provide traction for days.

The most versatile bike in our range ticks even more boxes.

Santa Cruz Chameleon In the press...

Outstanding sweet spot balance of rowdy confidence and easy speed with added wheel size, transmission and futureproofing versatility built in. Buy if, You want an addictively engaging, hyper-versatile all rounder that refuses to play by category and geometry fashion rules

bike radar | June 2018

my overall impression of the bike is that it’s a huge grin factory. Hardtails are fun for lots of reasons, and I enjoy the efficiency on climbing and the visceral way it connects you to the trail. Having to keep your balance more active is stimulating and fun for me. And it reminds me of when I started mountain biking as a teenager on a hardtail on hiking trails in Nevada. The Santa Cruz Chameleon totally puts you back in touch with what was originally fun, and what will always be fun, about riding. I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a ride-it-all bike, or to people following the N+1 rule who want to own an iconic and truly enjoyable ride.
