When 'they' write up the history of mountain biking, you can be absolutely sure that the Santa Cruz Chameleon will be on those page and the 2017 Chameleon makes that case more strongly than ever. Where the old Chameleon was a great trail bike, it was hamstrung compared to the new model. Capable of taking 29inch or 27.5+ tyres, running geared or singlespeed, racing or going bikepacking and hitting the trails of your choice as hard as you like, the new Chameleon is a true beast of many colours (although the current colours are just green & purple). The 6000 series aluminium frame has a kinked seat tube to offer one of the shortest sets of chainstays on any 29er (just 415mm) meaning that the back end tucks in beautifully for climbing and is nice and tight through the corners. Add in a 67.5 degree head angle (67.3 on the 29er) and you have a bike which will handle beautifully on just about any trail.

The two build kits (D1 and R1) give either RockShox Rekon or Fox Rhythm 120mm fork, which will take the edge off tough trails and give you the confidence to push the Chameleon to its limit. Backing this up, you get SRAM Level or Level T brakes for tons of power and acres of modulation, no matter how high the speeds. Getting you up the hills, SRAM's NX 1x11 gearing is proven to offer a wide enough ratio for any climb, while giving you the oomph to overtake your mates on the way back down. A Race Face Ride cockpit with 760mm bar and 35mm clamp gives the Chameleon tons of control and enough leverage to wrench the bike out of any sort of trouble that the rider might find themselves in.

The 29er variant is fitted with Novotec hubs laced to WTB STP i23 rims for a pair of hoops that are light enough for racing but tough enough for big mountain trails. Matched to these, the Maxxis Minion front tyres offers all the grip you'll ever need and the fast rolling Crossmark rear tyre won't slow you don't when you need to chase down the pack. On the 27.5+ version, wider Race Face AR40 rims allow the bigger Maxxis Rekon plus sized tyres to maximise their volume, giving you more comfort and grip than you ever thought possible.

Twin bottle bosses on the Chameleon 2017 hint at bike packing potential, while the 29er variant wouldn't look out of place on a marathon XC race start. The frame also comes with internal dropper post routing for the full up-to-date look. No matter what your riding style, the new Santa Crux Chameleon 2017 will blend right in.
