Product Description
Chameleon Carbon 27.5 Plus SE Reserve Mountain Bike by Santa Cruz Bicycles
The Chameleon's shreddy spirit and renowned versatility has captured the hearts of riders for over two decades. Originally conceived as a do-it-all bike that spanned the gap between freeride hardtail and XC race rig, over time the Chameleon has evolved into a more trail-focused machine. The versatility has not been lost though, as the aluminum-framed Chameleon released by Santa Cruz in 2017 expanded the bike's capabilities into the realm of bikepacking adventures. Now, much to our liking, Santa Cruz bestows us with a carbon fiber version of the Chameleon that delivers a snappier, more responsive ride while shedding 250-grams of weight compared to the aluminum version. And while the geometry remains largely the same as the aluminum version, this carbon fiber Chameleon Carbon 27. 5 Plus SE Reserve Complete Mountain Bike comes with a few features that help this reptile stand out from the crowd. In addition to the lighter and faster carbon fiber frame, the new Chameleon comes with triple-bolt cargo cage mounts under the downtube for enhanced carrying capacity on multi-day adventures. This is a huge plus for bikepacking enthusiasts or those that prefer to ride without a hydration pack. This top-end build also comes with guaranteed-for-life Santa Cruz Reserve carbon rims laced to trusty Hope Pro4 hubs, as well as a matching Hope headset. Not only do these bits add some color-matching awesomeness, but they might just make your bike last forever.From backcountry epics to backyard jump sessions, the Chameleon is easily adaptable to suit its environment. With a low-slung bottom bracket and moderately slack geometry, this bike handles tricky descents and the occasional day at the bike park, but is happy to rack up miles on an all-day sufferfest too. It's offered here as a 27. 5+ trail bike for voluminous traction and greater compliance over rugged trails with its plus-sized tires, but it can be run as a fast-rolling 29er with its interchangeable dropouts. Also, these inter...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
