When 'they' write up the history of mountain biking, you can be absolutely sure that the Santa Cruz Chameleon will be on those pages and the Santa Cruz Chameleon Alloy 2019 is here to press the case for its own chapter. Continuing to build on the 2017 relaunch, the Chameleon is 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. This bike is a true beast of many colours (although the current colours are orange or blue). 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 three build kit options (D, R, S) give either RockShox Recon, Fox Rhythm or Float 34 120mm fork (130mm on the plus options), which will take the edge off tough trails and give you the confidence to push the Chameleon to its limit and are all available as 29er or 2.8 plus bikes). Backing this up, the Chameleon gets SRAM Level brakes for tons of power and acres of modulation, no matter how high the speeds. Getting you up the hills, SRAM's NX 1x11 or Eagle 12 speed 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 cockpit with wide alloy bar and 50mm stem 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 D and R builds get WTB ST 29er rims laced to SRAM MTH hubs for a sensible balance or weight and reliability, while the S build gains Race Face AR rims on smart DT 370 hubs for higher performance. The 29er variants all come fitted with grippy Maxxis Minion 29x2.3 up front and fast rolling Crossmark 29x2.1 tyres out back. the plus version of the Chameleon gets a pair of Maxxis Rekon 2.8" tyres for loads of grip and great cushioning on rocky trails.  Twin bottle bosses on the Chameleon alloy 2019 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 excellent Santa Cruz Chameleon Alloy 2019 will do the job beautifully.
