Chameleon

Gloss Olive & Purple

Le Chameleon a été un des premiers endurigides sur un segment qui n'existait pas encore.

Dirt or asphalt, mountain or urban, geared or singlespeed—the moniker Chameleon has never rang more true than on this updated-for-2017 Santa Cruz classic. Upsized to either 29-inch or 27.5+ wheels, the Chameleon shifts from trail-worthy hardtail to bikepacker to garbage-weather weapon of choice with simple, elegant aplomb. The wheel change is accomplished via interchangeable dropouts, and there's a singlespeed version for each wheel size—geared dropouts are 148mm-spaced, and singlespeed are 142mm. 

Features:

  • 27.5 Plus-Compatible
  • 29" wheels
  • Cadre en aluminium
  • Interchangeable dropouts for gears (with 148mm x 12mm axle) or single speed (with 142mm x 12mm axle)
  • Tailles : S, M, L, XL
  • Stealth dropper post routing
  • Pédalier fileté
  • Two bottle cage mounts
