Wolf Tooth Boostinator

Adapt to Changing Standards

New standards can bring amazing benefits and possibilities, but sometimes that comes at the expense of gear becoming incompatible with new products. With the introduction of Boost hub spacing many were wondering what to do with their “old standard” wheels. Luckily, Wolf Tooth was here to answer the question with a simple and cool product, the Boostinator

Don’t get miffed by not being able to fit your fancy wheelset in the latest Boost frames and forks. Adapt your 12x142mm rear hubs and 100x15mm front hubs with the Wolf Tooth Boostinator to fit Boost 148 frames and Boost 110 forks.

So, how does it work? Simply, the end cap extends the hub width to fit into Boost dropouts, while a rear brake spacer and extra-long, high-strength bolts keep the rotor in line with your brake caliper. Lastly, you will need to re-dish your wheel(s) ever so slightly. Re-dishing is a pretty quick, simple and/or cheap process, and actually improves the bracing angles of your spokes, meaning your wheels get stronger and drivetrain positions are maintained.

Boostinator kits are currently compatible with Hope Evo Pro 2 hubs and Industry Nine Torch hubs, but Wolf Tooth continues to add more to the list. For additional information on how easy it is to setup your wheels with Boostinator check out the installation instructions here.

Compatibility Notes

  • Specific model compatibility listed below
  • Front Boostinators are only an endcap and do not require rotor spacer. The wheel is re-dished
  • Rear Boostinators require both a re-dish and rotor spacer
  • Hubs spacing is 100mm front and 142 rear, and the Boostinators make them 110 and 148 respectively
  • NOT recommend (or safe) for non-symmetric lacing like the 2:1 lacing found on some of Industry Nine's wheels

Models

  • Boostinator 9TF Compatible with 100x15mm Front Industry Nine Torch hubs. Not compatible with 2:1 lacing wheels from Industry Nine
  • Boostinator 9TR Compatible with 142x12 Rear Industry Nine Torch hubs. Not compatible with 2:1 lacing wheels from Industry Nine
  • Boostinator HF Compatible with 15x100mm Hope Pro 2 EVO and Pro 4 front hubs

  • Boostinator HR Compatible with 12x142mm Hope Pro 2 EVO and Pro 4 rear hubs

Works as expected
It works as expected. Keep in mind that once you install the spacer, you need to redish the wheel. I installed the front and rear spacers on Hope Pro 2 EVO hubs. 4-stars as it's a little expensive for such a small part.

Does re-dishing require buying new spokes?
A shopper on Apr 25, 2017
BEST ANSWER: No. Dishing is just de-tensioning the spokes and then re-tensioning again to center the hub. Without doing so, the rim will not be centered and the rim/tire will ride closer to the right seat/chain stays. In the case of a front Boostinator, the rim/tire will ride to the left of center without being re-dished. Re-dishing will just make the adjustment and give correct spoke tension to both non-drive side and drive-side. The process is a pretty quick for a competent wheel builder.
would this work on a spank oozy wheel set?
