Product Info

As the name implies, the Santa Cruz Bicycles Chameleon A D 29 Complete Mountain Bike can take on many moods. An aluminum hardtail that's beefy enough for trail riding, but plenty quick to enter an XC race, it's blazing fast and loads of fun. This 11-speed build is on the aggressive side of the spectrum, ready to rip apart your favorite trails with fast-rolling 29" wheels bringing tons of grip in a playful package. Swappable dropouts make conversions a breeze, whether you're going single speed or geared, 27.5" or keeping the wagon wheels. With a 120mm Rockshox Recon fork on a ridiculously compliant and playful frame, this is a perfectly proportioned hardtail that doesn't shy away from busting genres. Truly more than the sum of its parts, the Chameleon is ready to become your favorite bike.

Fork

RockShox Recon RLRecon represents a perfect partnership between Revelation's 32mm crowns and lower legs, and bombproof RockShox new steel Fast Black upper tubes. Adopting this proven chassis allows for shorter upper tubes, which means Recon just went on a serious weight-loss program. With the addition of its now-standard Motion Control™ damper, the re-invented Recon is the new silver standard for fun.
