Riders looking for performance gains are going to drive engineers, designers, and manufacturers to explore multiple ways to get that done. Within certain design parameters, Boost is a great solution that makes sense. Boost is the latest and greatest axle platform which all performance mountain bike frame and fork manufacturers are using. In addition some bike frames with the boost treatment will be capable of accommodating plus size tires. Boost widens the rear axle by 6mm and the front axle by 10mm. By increasing the width of the bike frame’s chainstays the manufacturers have the ability to shorten the chainstays without sacrificing tire clearance. Optimally short chainstays allow your weight to be positioned closer to the rear axle which means the bike will generally feel far more nimble, be easier to manual, and climb more confidently. All of these advantages of boost is for stiffness results in more effective and more precise bike handling, given the wider rear wheel, a shorter chain stay can be used And finally, boost improves clearance on the forks and the rear.
