7 generations of huck machine, xc racer, winter hardtail, dream build and more, the Chameleon has finally being introduced to the carbon moulds at Santa Cruz.
This latest incarnation of the legendry Santa Cruz hardtail uses all previous technologies and skills used by Santa Cruz to create an amazing, true all round hardtail mountain bike.
Everything about the current alloy Chameleon has remained, keeping it fun, playful and agile. But By making a carbon version, Santa Cruz can dial in the compliance for a better ride feel and added stiffness for thrashing through turns. All of which is still covered by their lifetime frame warranty.
In keeping with its name, the Carbon chameleon still runs the swappable dropouts seen on the alloy which means you can choose either 29er wagon wheels or 650+ depending on what you’re wanting from the bike and there’s more bottle mounts too which means anything from double bottle cages to bike packing kit.
Designed with 120mm fork with 29” wheels or 130mm fork with 27.5+ wheels, the Carbon Chameleon is an ideal bike for anything from laps of your local to epic overnighters bikepacking.
This launch version also gets a special custom colour match smattering of Hope components including top headset cup and Pro4 hubs.
