The Santa Cruz Chameleon is ready to adapt to its local environment, whatever direction your imagination takes you. Unlike its smarmy, insurance peddling gecko cousin, the Chameleon commands more than just 15 minutes of your time. Going back to its simple, aluminum roots, the Santa Cruz Chameleon is the shapeshifting bike for freedom seekers.
With options for a full 29 or MX setup, you won't have to sacrifice speed and comfort for hauling or handling. Adjustable dropouts make it endlessly limitless from a multi-geared trail charger to single-speed racer to bikepacking mule...and pretty much anything imaginable in between. The low slung top tube and progressive geometry means it's as ready as ever to get creative on the trail.
No need to check the weather report or map your ride with the Chameleon--just hop on and prepare to get free. The Santa Cruz Chameleon cannot be typecast and is ready for whatever adventure the human mind can conceive.
