Product Description

By design, the Santa Cruz Chameleon 8 AL MX D Kit is a blank canvas, ready to go in whatever direction your imagination takes it. Creativity in wheel size, component choice and gearing make it the perfect muse for freethinkers and freedom seekers alike.

The Chameleon was created for riders who opt to sculpt their ideal bike, and aren’t afraid to experiment. The Santa Cruz Chameleon 8 AL MX D Kit features a mixed 29" / 27.5" (F/R) wheelset and a solid and responsive SRAM SX/NX drivetrain. But whether you choose 29er or mixed, geared or fixed, multiple major configuration transformations are easy via the interchangeable dropouts. 

A low slung top tube and progressive geometry mean this bike blends into any environment. Tackle raucous short-cuts across town, or skip the city altogether. The Chameleon turns itself to trail exploration with the flip of an Allen key, thanks to the triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube and standard bottle mount within the frame. A RockShox Recon Silver RL 130mm fork handles the dampening duties. 

Whatever the weather, however long the ride, wherever you're going, the Chameleon is so endlessly customizable and adjustable that the only constraint is really your own mind and motivation. Find out where your Chameleon will take you!
