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.
