Developed by Revolver, the Kameleon is the only dedicated dual wheel system which can be switched from a Deep section spoked wheel into a full Disc wheel in a matter of seconds. Universal disc wheel covers are widely available but simply do not come close to matching the level of flawless integration and aerodynamics achieved as a result of the innovative Kameleon project.

In Deep section mode this wheel delivers the same level of performance as our Kronostok 9 rear wheel using a wide section rim which works best with tyre widths of 23mm and above, for superior rolling resistance. The rim also has our blunt edge profile for excellent handling characteristics without aerodynamic compromise, available in clincher & tubular formats.
In full Disc mode this wheel is almost indistinguishable from our top selling Revolver CX Disc model. Fitting our ‘Wave Lenticular’ carbon disc’s using only a retaining hub collar, without any unsightly side fixing or distortion this wheel then becomes one of the very fastest wheels available, unhindered by its versatility… Fact!
Advantages of the Kameleon
- Specific course & conditions wheel choice come race day
- Easy transportation inside bike boxes that wouldn’t normally accommodate a disc wheel
- Eliminates Age Group competitors worries of last minute disc wheel exclusion in international AG championships due to adverse conditions. No need to travel with two rear wheels
- One wheel, one tyre, one cassette, two choices
- And of course, one wheel purchase
How it works
The Kameleon is designed to convert from Deep section spoked wheel to full Disc wheel in no time at all (less than a minute in fact with a little practice).
The carbon fibre discs are dedicated to each side of the wheel and are located onto the hub’s shoulders with a precise fit. This is a key feature as to how securely the disc’s sit once fitted.
The drive-side disc is fitted first, held in place with 12x heavy duty Velcro discs which have one side pre-fixed to the disc in their correct position. Simply align the inflation cut out in the disc with the inflation valve on the rim and fix the counterpart of the Velcro pads over the spokes to make a secure contact. Each of these individual pads has a 2kg grab capability which delivers a simple but effective means of fixing that will not work lose.
The non-drive side disc is even easier to fit. Once seated over the hub simply fit our purpose made alloy collar onto the hub’s shoulder and secure with a 4mm Allen Key. You now have one of the fastest Disc wheels available……Simple!
