As the name implies, the Santa Cruz Chameleon is a bike that can change to match its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to husky bikepacking mule to anything in between. The Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around mountain bike use.

Choose your Chameleon wisely. The Chameleon S grants you the go-anywhere rollover and high speed of 29-inch Maxxis tires, wrapped around WTB rims with the strength to let you get rowdy, as Chameleon riders are apt to do. To help keep your trajectory on track, a 120mm FOX 34 Float Performance fork soaks up the chop and precisely steers where you point it. SRAM’s GX Eagle drivetrain and Level TL brakes perfectly complement one another, providing a huge 12-speed gear range to get you anywhere on the mountain, with the braking power to make sure you get back in one piece. Race Face and WTB outfit your control points, with a Reverb dropper post to let you flick a switch to select for efficient climbing or rad descending.
