Boostinator Conversion Kit
While here in the office at Competitive Cyclist we may be fans of new and improving technology, there's always the frustration that comes into play when standards change, and your go-to gear becomes incompatible with the current lineup. Wolftooth aims to ease the pain of changing standards with the Boostinator Conversion Kit. This handy kit allows non-boost 100 x 15mm front, and 142 x 12mm rear wheels to be mounted in boost frames and forks with wide 110mm and 148mm hubs (respectively), allowing you to get the most out of your hubs and hoops that were the cream-of-the-crop just a couple of years ago.
The Boostinator Kit consists of a specially designed axle end cap, and a precision-machined rotor spacer that moves the rotor and cassette outwards (rear only), allowing brakes and derailleurs to function as designed, while your hub fits neatly within the wider spaced hubs. In front, the kit comes just with an end cap, as the wheel doesn't require a rotor-spacer to line up appropriately. In the back, the Boostinator is designed to only work with 6-bolt wheels, as there's no way to space centerlock rotors over 6mm, however in front its simple to pair the Boostinator with either 6-bolt or Centerlock rotors. The Boostinator is not recommended (or safe) for non-symmetric lacing, like the 2:1 lacing foundon some Industry Nine wheels.

keep them rolling
- I've used it several times
boostinated my I9s front and rear. these are very high quality and fit the hubs as good as the original manufacturer's endcaps. extremely happy with them. its much nicer to have an actual endcap that a little spacer between the endcap and dropouts to fall out on the floor every time you pull the wheels out.

New life for old hubs
- I've put it through the wringer
Got these for using my old wheels on a new frame. After a quick redishing the wheel was good to go. Awesome way to keep your wheels rolling on your new boost frame.

- I've put it through the wringer
I picked up a boost hardtail, but didn't want to ditch my non-boost carbon wheels quite yet. Picked up a Boostinator to try and get a few more years out of a heavy wheel investment, and couldn't be happier. No creaking or extra noise.

Do I need to re-dish my hubs with this adapter?
February 1, 2021
Hi Paul excellent question. Yes the wheel will need to be re-dished. Specific model compatibility listed below under the “Models” section 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 Rear Boostinator kits are not approved for rotors larger than 183mm Hubs spacing is 100mm front and 142 rear, and the Boostinators make them 110 and 148 respectively Compatible with 6-bolt FRONT wheels and SOME centerlock models Compatible with ONLY 6-bolt REAR wheels (there is no way to space centerlock rotors over 6mm) For a complete list of compatible DT Swiss build (Spline) wheels click here NOT recommend (or safe) for non-symmetric lacing like the 2:1 lacing found on some of Industry Nine’s wheels

Have a specialized Hi lo hub that is 110mm x 20mm spacing. I need to convert it to 110mm x 15mm boost spacing to fit my fork. Will these end caps work? My current hub has removable end caps.

we just carry them for the dt swiss and I9 torch hubs right now.
