Nothing beats the acceleration of a hardtail mountain bike and the Santa Cruz Highball C is purpose-built for high-intensity XC pursuits. On this iteration, Santa Cruz shaved half a pound from the weight of the frame and redesigned the seat stay/top tube junction to give you more comfort over the long haul without sacrificing speed. With three water bottle mounts, threaded BB reliability, and internally routed cables, the only thing you'll be concerned about is when to make the turn back home. The Highball S/C build ups the ante with SRAM's GX Eagle drivetrain and level TL brakes to give you a great mix of performance and value. A remote-actuated Fox 32 Rhythm fork guides you through rough terrain while the Race Face/DT Swiss wheelset and Maxxis Aspen tires do their part when it's time to grip and rip. Saddle up and experience the rocket-like feel only a carbon hardtail can deliver.
The tin lizard has ascended the evolutionary ladder and is now a fully-imagined carbon fiber creature. It’s Darwinism in action. Santa Cruz 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. Speaking of color-matched, the custom blue Hope hubs and headset on the SE kit make this reptile stand out from the crowd. Two bottle cage mounts, including a triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube mean you can escape from the crowds, too. The Carbon Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27.5+, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of simple, swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to single-speed racer to husky bikepacking mule, or anything in between. The most versatile bike in the Santa Cruz range ticks even more boxes.
As the name implies, the Santa Cruz Chameleon is a bike that can change to match its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, geared or single-speed, this adaptable hardtail utilizes a suite of swappable dropouts to convert it from aggro trail charger to husky bikepacking mule to anything in between. The Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around mountain bike use. Choose your Chameleon wisely. The Chameleon D grants you the go-anywhere rollover and high speed of 29-inch Maxxis tires, wrapped around WTB rims with the strength to let you get rowdy, as Chameleon riders are apt to do. To help keep your trajectory on track, a 120mm RockShox Revelation fork soaks up the chop and precisely steers where you point it, thanks to rigid Torque Cap fork-hub interface. SRAM’s NX Eagle drivetrain and Level brakes perfectly complement one another, providing a wide 11-speed gear range to get you anywhere on the mountain, with the braking power to make sure you get back in one piece. Race Face and WTB outfit your control points, with lightweight control that opens terrain and encourages adventure.
