Chameleon A R+


2018 Santa Cruz Chameleon A R+

Dirt or asphalt, mountain or urban, geared or singlespeed—the moniker Chameleon has never rang more true than on this Santa Cruz classic. On 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. The Chameleon R 27+ comes equipped with a Fox Rhythm 34 120mm fork, along with a SRAM 1x NX groupset and Level brakes that offer solid performance in a mid-level package.

- 27.5 Plus
- Aluminum frame
- Interchangeable dropouts for gears (with 148mm x 12mm axle) or single speed (with 142mm x 12mm axle)
- Stealth dropper post routing
- Threaded Bottom Bracket
- Two bottle cage mounts
