Santa Cruz Launches the New Carbon Chameleon


The tin lizard has ascended the evolutionary ladder and is now a fully-imagined carbon fiber creature. It’s Darwinism in action. We’re already stocked up with them here at The Farm!

We took the fun-loving, shreddy spirit and adjustability of the beloved aluminum Chameleon but evolved it into a lighter, faster, more advanced species. It’s a do-it-all hardtail that is as happy making the most of backyard booter (mis)adventures as it is fully loaded with camp gear and a color-matched dangle mug.


  • Two bottle cage mounts (including option for a cargo cage mount under downtube)

  • Convertible between 29 or 27.5+ wheels

  • Geared and singlespeed dropouts (compatible with aluminum Chameleon, too)

  • Clearance for up to 3.0” tires (27.5+) or 2.5” (29er)

  • Internal brake and dropper routing

  • Made for: Backyard trail thrashing and backcountry soul-searching

  • At home on: cross country to crossing countries

  • Sizes: S, M, L, XL
