A Hardtail for Hypebeasts: Supreme x Santa Cruz Chameleon Aug 13, 2018

Do not adjust your phone, pad, laptop, or desktop computers. This is a real collaboration and you know what? I think it’s awesome. In a completely surprising move, Supreme, purveyors of random wares and streetwear, have teamed up with Santa Cruz Bicycles on a limited edition Chameleon hardtail. Check out the preview at Supreme and expect this to “drop” shortly. Thanks to Johnnie Davis for the heads up! Rumor has it retail will be $2,500.

Check out our review of the Santa Cruz Chameleon in the Related sidebar.

    I can dig it. Like you said, its a bit surprising. I wonder if re-sellers will be selling them for. I hope the tubeless sealant is red too.

  • This is terrible news for Bike Shops! The Santa Cruz Chameleon will never be in stock again! Oh wait…it’s never been in stock anyways! My plug has been contacted. You’ll see me rolling…you hatin’

    • I’m hungry!

      • Germanflea

        Me too, I think this every time I see these shirts, Taco Bell Burrito Supreme, someone please make this as a tshirt Burritosupreme. Being in Germany with no Mexican food you actually start to crave Taco Bell.

        • Oh, been there! I can only eat so much shawarma.

  • Dustin Sharp

    Nice additional color option, assuming the “supreme”decal is not under clear coat and is easily removed

    • GNARdina

      I have a feeling the people who buy this won’t be removing the supreme logo. Just a hunch.

    • Terry Dean Cain

      this bike will cost waaaay too much for anyone to buy it just for the color.

  • Loudass, Esq.

    1) Take $1,799 D+ spec Chameleon
    2) Instruct factory in Taiwan to paint it red and apply decal that says “Supreme”
    3) Charge $2,500

      This one comes with $700 supreme Chester pedals.

      • I wish they were Supreme pedals! I’d buy those. haha

  • Andrew Arevalo

    People in the Industry are probably trying to cash in on that EP deal

  • Matt Karwoski

    I hate to be “that guy” but this is just silly. Doesn’t even look good in my opinion.

    • GNARdina

      Agreed, the logo is just placed in the typical spot. There’s nothing creative or dynamic about the look of this.

    Just think, maybe someday someone will ask $47K for one: https://hypebeast.com/2018/3/supreme-brooklyn-machine-works-bmx-bike-sale

  • Meh.

  • Sean Quill

    Not Sure doubts Beef Supreme would Upgrayedd.

  • GNARdina

    I wanna see a Virgil Abloh deconstructed mountain bike. :)

  • Ian McElroy

    When will the bike industry stop this nonsense and start doing collaborations that matter again???

  • belopsky

    I really like my Chameleon (R+) but I miss my Jones. Maybe this will make my Chameleon appealing to sell ;O

  • Samuel Lopez Jr.

    It’s a whack bike,all the components are garbage,not even a dropper post
