• Many still view the 29-inch wheel as the weak link in aggressive trail and enduro riding.

• Boost uses a wider spacing for the hub’s flanges (5mm per side on front hub, 3mm per side on rear hub).

• The wider flange spacing allows a stronger spoke-bracing angle resulting in a stiffer wheel.

• A 29-inch Boost rear wheel is as stiff as a 27.5-inch rear wheel on an existing 142-mm hub with the same rim and spoke.
