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. 


  • Options for full 29 or MX setups means you can opt for speed and comfort for hauling or quick and nimble handling.
  • Adjustable dropouts make it a multi-geared trail charger to single-speed racer to bikepacking mule...and pretty much anything imaginable in between.
  • A triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube and additional mount within the frame means the Chameleon is primed to escape from the crowds.
  • The low slung top tube and more progressive geometry (65.5-dgree headangle and longer reach) provides all-trail capability.

*In the bicycle industry, suppliers and factories sometimes change specs without notice and state that they are "subject to change without notice". This is because bicycles are made from hundreds of parts which come from dozens of vendors. Parts are sometimes updated to the most current production generation/iteration one gets better or more current parts or a comparable part. Product specifications are subject to change without notice.
