The 2018 Santa Cruz Chameleon is up for any kind of riding - dirt or asphalt, mountain or urban, geared or singlespeed - the choice is yours. Wheels have been upsized to either 29-inch or 27.5+ wheels, the wheel change is accomplished via interchangeable dropouts.

Add to that the Hightower’s 67° head angle, longer reach and trim chain stays, and you've got a bike that is adaptable to every terrain and riding style.

Short story about the durability of these glasses... shop owner Tani and Geoff were fishing, and Tani had set his Ryder glasses down on a rock. Soon thereafter, Geoff slipped and landed palm first on the glasses...thought they had to be beyond destroyed, but that wasn't the case. They completely held their shape, and aside from a few scratches they are good to go! They have also been stepped on, and again have kept their shape and have not broken.
Prices range between $39-$89 depending on the model and lenses.

It's here! The all new 2017 Pivot Mach 5.5 Carbon, with 140mm of dw-link™ rear travel and designed for forks up to 160mm travel.
The geometry of the Mach 5.5 Carbon is balanced to be well-rounded out on the trails for whatever your ride brings – the optimized long and low geometry with a 66.5-degree head angle provides high-speed stability and descending capabilities, while the short 430mm chainstays and relatively steep 73.5-degree seat angle handles the steepest of climbs.
Pivot has evolved their mid-travel link design as well. This new linkage utilizes the same rear shock pivot cartridge bearing design found in their longer travel bikes (such as the Firebird and Phoenix), to give the Mach 5.5 Carbon the unmatched small bump compliance and traction that Pivot is known for, in a lighter weight and more compact design.
Like bigger tires? The Mach 5.5 Carbon can run any 27.5 tire combination, from 2.1-2.6, so your options are nearly unlimited. Like a clean look? The Mach 5.5 Carbon also offers full Di2 electronic integration and easy, clean internal routing of shifters, brakes and droppers.
