Chameleon 27.5+ D Complete Mountain Bike - 2018 by Santa Cruz Bicycles
Upholding its adaptable namesake with versatility that's near impossible to match in the realm of aluminum hardtails, the Santa Cruz Chameleon 27. 5+ D Complete Mountain Bike conquers everything from fast-flowing forest loops to rock-littered alpine descents without feeling out of its element. Accommodating the latest standards of modern trail bikes, the 2017 Chameleon is reinvigorated with a longer front end, low-slung bottom bracket of 12. 4 inches, snappy 16. 3-inch chainstays, and a relaxed 67. 5-degree head tube angle.

The provided 2. 8-inch tubeless tires allow you to drastically lower the pressure for smoother tracking across the rough stuff, as well as unrelenting grip when you lean it through a corner or pedal along a loose patch of dirt with chunky rocks. Because of its plus-sized tires, you'll find the Chameleon to not only to be an excellent choice for trails with loose chunder and rock gardens, but also for lengthy bikepacking adventures where added shock absorption equates to less fatigue, especially when you don't have a full-suspension absorbing bumps and rocks.
