The Chameleon, one of our longest-tenured models, has ascended the evolutionary ladder and is now a fully imagined carbon fiber sub-species. It’s Darwinism in action. We took the fun-loving, shreddy spirit and adjustability of the beloved aluminum Chameleon and added a lighter, faster, more advanced version of the 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 a triple-bolt cargo cage mount under the downtube mean you can escape from the crowds, too. The Chameleon changes to suit its environment. Twenty-niner or 27-plus, 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. Depending on setup and skill level, the Chameleon is capable on a wide range of terrain—aggressive trail riding to jump lines to all-around use. Going for maximum speed and rollability? Go 29er. Riding mostly loose terrain? Get some Plus tires that provide traction for days. The most versatile bike in our range now ticks even more boxes. - Carbon C 29/27+ frame - FOX Rhythm 34 130mm fork - SRAM NX Eagle drivetrain - WTB ST i40 TCS 2.0 rims - SRAM Guide T brakes
The Highball is our flagship carbon hardtail race thoroughbred and a dark horse in XC versatility. More capable than a pure endurance bike, more composed than most XC race-rigs, the Highball has evolved to be easier to ride harder for longer. We fine-tuned the carbon layup process and the low-angle, bridgeless seatstays join the seat tube below the top tube junction in order to curb trail chatter. Built around a 27.2mm diameter seat post, the whole package combines to take the "hard" out of hardtail riding. It has the mindset of a race bike but it’s prepared for more. With capacity for three bottle cages, the ever-reliable threaded BB, and, of course, the lifetime warranty that comes standard with all Santa Cruz bikes, it’s the kind of bike that’ll go far. - Carbon C frame - FOX SC 32 Float Performance 100mm fork w/remote - SRAM GX Eagle drivetrain - RaceFace AR Offset 25 rims/DT 370 hubs - SRAM Level TL brakes
No other hardtail descends as fast, climbs as nimbly, or kicks as hard. With the otherworldly performance of the Lefty Ocho, this is next-level cross-country performance, tailor-made to feed the needs of the XC obsessed. - BallisTec carbon frame - Left Ocho Carbon 100mm-travel suspension fork - ENVE M525 Carbon tubeless-ready wheelset - 12-speed SRAM XX1 Eagle components - ENVE carbon handlebar and seatpost - Prologo Zero II saddle with Tirox rails - SRAM Level Ultimate hydraulic disc brake
It's the Bianchi pedigree as being a world-class racing brand that makes every day on the trails aboard the Duel a blast. Its lightweight aluminum frame, category-leading Shimano hydraulic disc brakes, and sporty geometry will take your trail riding to the next level. Also included is a Shimano 18-speed drivetrain for the best possible range of hill-climbing gears and a supple hydraulic suspension fork. The Duel also has rear rack bosses for those camping adventures done in-between the afternoons of riding with the family on the gravel railroad towpath. If a wolf in sheep's clothing is your idea of your next bike's personality, the Duel fits that character!
The KHS Team 29 puts you one step closer to the podium thanks to a light and stiff MSD carbon frame that transfers every bit of input into efficient forward motion. Mavic Crossmax Light 29-inch wheels back the frame's responsiveness with great rollover capability and acceleration, while Shimano hydraulic disc brakes offer precise control through the corners. Shimano's legendary XT 1 x 11 drivetrain keeps you on the gas with quick and smooth shifting. And, this race-ready build is topped with a Q2 carbon seatpost, Wren carbon handlebar, and a WTB SL8 Pro saddle.
