Product Info

Like a creature from a horror movie that just won't die, if it was a fun and good-natured horror movie where the bad guy was actually the protagonist we root for: the Santa Cruz Bicycles Chameleon A R MX Complete Mountain Bike just keeps coming back. You'd be hard-pressed to find a bike that's more customizable, with every configuration making a lot of sense for its intended purpose: singlespeed or geared, big slicks or smaller knobbies out back, so much is possible with the easily swappable rear dropouts. With a twist of an allen key you can make the coolest bar bike into the most fun trekker. With 130mm of fork travel and a dropper, this is a bike that'll survive the apocalypse--but "cockroach" just isn't a very good name!

Drive Train

SRAM NX Eagle™It's how you start that matters. Whether you're discovering the mountain for the first time or you're an MTB lifer searching for a no-nonsense, no-worries 1x drivetrain, SRAM NX Eagle is ready for action and ready to take you there. NX Eagle brings you a wide range of gear choices engineered for simplicity and durability, so you can focus on what matters most-the ride ahead. German engineered and proudly bearing the SRAM Eagle stamp of approval, NX Eagle is ready to let the world know what real riding feels like.

Brakes

Avid CenterLine RotorsThe new CenterLine Rotor was designed to keep the center of friction consistent throughout rotation thereby minimizing vibration offering consistent performance and a quiet ride.

SRAM Guide T BrakesetGuide T brings the consistent performance that you have come to expect from SRAM's lightweight Guide four-piston caliper. Pair this with MatchMaker™ for a clean looking bar set-up, plus the ease of use with SRAM's Bleeding Edge™ drip-free bleed port and you have a smart budget minded brake that keeps you in control.

Wheelset

Maxxis Minion DHF Front TireThe Minion DHF was designed for the often loose and muddy conditions of aggressive all-mountain terrain. The DHF incorporates ramped knobs for low rolling resistance and channel-cut knobs to increase gripping edges, giving straight-line control and precise cornering.

Mixed Wheel SizingThe mixed "mullet" wheel sizing of top level racers has trickled down to the rest of us: with a 29" wheel up front for maximum grip and rollover clearance, you'll have a smoother and more solid stance through rough stuff and turns. The smaller 27.5" rear wheel helps you initiate those turns, while keeping the rear end maneuverable and out of your shorts.

Race Face AR Offset 30 Rims Laced to SRAM MTH HubsTough hubs connected to light and burly aluminum rims--this is a trail-ripping setup that's ready to absorb all the trail action you see. With great feel and even better durability, these wheels won't disappoint.

Maxxis Aggressor Rear TireThe Maxxis Aggressor is designed for high-speed, hard-packed, rocky trails. It works especially well as a rear tire paired with a Minion DHF or Assegai in the front.

Additional Features

SDG Tellis Dropper PostAn absolute workhorse. A dropper post and remote combo with unsurpassed durability, reliability and simplicity all in one competitively priced package.
