Description

Chameleon Carbon 29 S Complete Mountain Bike

As the longest running model in Santa Cruz's lineup, the Chameleon has a long heritage as hardtail that can adapt to everything from 24-hour racing to ripping hot laps at your local trails. The current generation enjoys the same playful handling and renowned versatility the Chameleon has always been known for, but is now offered with a carbon fiber frame that delivers a more responsive ride and a significant 250-gram weight savings compared to the aluminum version. With a lighter and faster carbon fiber frame paired with unstoppable 29-inch wheels, the Chameleon Carbon 29 S Complete Mountain Bike is ready to rack up the mileage as your go-to trail bike, or as a highly-capable bikepacking adventure rig. Santa Cruz even includes triple-bolt cargo cage mounts under the downtube, a huge perk for multi-day adventure enthusiasts.

From backcountry epics to backyard jump sessions, the Chameleon is easily adaptable to suit its environment. With a low-slung bottom bracket and moderately slack geometry, this bike handles tricky descents and the occasional day at the bike park, but is equally at home racking up serious miles on an all-day sufferfest, too. It's offered here as a speedy 29er for big rides deep in the mountains, but features an interchangeable dropout system that lets you switch to high-volume 27.5+ tires for unwavering traction and flotation in loose, chunky terrain. Also, these interchangeable dropouts allow you easily change from a geared drivetrain to a singlespeed setup, should you desire a no-nonsense drivetrain that teaches you to focus on technique and channeling raw power to clean those tough climbs and technical sections of trail. Note, you'll have to purchase separate dropouts from Santa Cruz if you want to change wheel sizes or convert to singlespeed use.

This "S" build kit gives you a trustworthy selection of parts, including a 120-millimeter Fox Performance 34 Fork for stiff, confident tracking over the rough stuff and plush absorption of rocks and roots on the trail. SRAM's GX Eagle 1x12 drivetrain gives you a massive gear range with its 10 to 50-tooth cassette, allowing you to tackle a wide variety of terrain while enjoying smooth shifting, infallible chain retention, and quiet operation. Sturdy Race Face rims are paired with bombproof DT Swiss hubs to keep you rolling true across even the most rugged terrain. The package is rounded out with a RockShox Reverb Stealth dropper for getting the seat out of the way on those steep descents where you'd benefit from a more aggressive body position.

  • Santa Cruz's do-it-all hardtail evolves with a responsive carbon fiber frame
  • From trail riding to bikepacking to dirt jumping, the Chameleon is a winner
  • Triple-bolt cargo cage mount for extra capacity on multi-day adventures
  • 67-degree head angle blends high-speed stability with capable climbing
  • Longer front end and shorter chainstays for playful handling
  • 29-inch wheels maximize speed and rollover across rugged terrain
  • Interchangeable dropouts let you swap in 27.5+ wheels or run it singlespeed
  • Carbon fiber construction gives you responsive handling that's backed by a lifetime warranty
