TartyBikes RD V-Brake Booster

New to Tarty Bikes, our own range of 'RD' (Read Design) components!

Want to find out more about how these products were designed and tested? Adam Read talks us through his design process here.

  • Affordable, useful, and durable. The RD range of products!
  • Designed by Tarty Bikes founder Adam Read, and tested by us.
  • Made right here in the UK!
The RD (Read Design) range of parts was born from a desire to bring popular, and useful products back to the sport of trials. Designed to be economical, durable and easy to fit, all the RD parts are great problem solvers that look stylish, don't break the bank, and are made in the UK too! Created by Tarty Bikes founder, Adam Read, each RD part has been designed for a wide range of compatibility, with decades of trials knowledge applied to the design of each component. Parts intended for high stress use have been FEA stress tested, and physically tested by us on our own bikes, to ensure they offer performance and durability.

- Stainless steel v-brake brake booster, designed by Tarty Bikes founder, Adam Read!
- Retro trials fans rejoice! A v-brake booster back on the market with a wide range of compatibility. Works great with compatible modern set-ups too!
- Laser cut from durable SAE 304 stainless steel, right here in Bamber Bridge, UK!
- 304 stainless steel has a higher density compared to mild steel and aluminium of equivalent thickness, this means it resists deforming under load, increasing the life span of the part. This 3mm thick booster has a similar stiffness to a 9mm thick alloy booster of the same design!
- FEA (Finite Element Analysis) stress testing was used in designing the shape of this booster, ensuring it delivers an improvement in stiffness on your brake set up.
- Triangular cut-outs on the booster arms and above bolt holes help save weight, while the main bridge is solid to better cope with stresses under braking.
- Polished finish looks great with Tarty Bikes logo laser etched onto the top of the bridge. You can also use a polishing compound to give your booster a stylish mirror finish!
- All RD products are collected direct from the manufacturer by Ben on his trusty single speed bicycle! Better for the environment, and Ben's fitness.
- Brake mount spacing range of 75-90mm will work with the majority of standard rim brake set-ups. Simply measure your brake mount spacing to find out if this will fit your frame. If your mount is within 1mm of the minimum or maximum fit range of the booster, simply file the mounting holes to fit!
- Please note: Bikes using v-brake adaptors on HS mounts will have a wider spacing than most standard v-brake frames, make sure to check your set-up with v-brake adaptors fitted before purchasing!
- 126mm at the widest outer point gives maximum stiffness without protruding too much so it risks catching your foot!
- 76mm inner diameter at the narrowest point over the top mounting holes leaves plenty of room for wider tyres.
- 95mm vertical clearance from the bolt holes to fit a wide range of tyres.
- Supplied with alloy booster spacers, steel washers and stainless steel M6 bolts with a shaft length of 40mm.
- Available in silver only.
- Weight: 148g (including booster, bolts, spacers and washers)

Additional Information

Please note: All RD parts feature surface imperfections, and discolouration on the edges of one side of the part. This is a by-product of the laser cut process, and in no way affects fit or function. Each part is QC checked by us to make sure tolerances are correct for its designed function. The small well on RD parts, visible as a small 'U' shaped cut in one of the edges of the part, is the start / stop point of the laser. We purposely designed this feature on all RD parts to ensure a clean start and finish during the laser cutting process. Tarty Bikes logos are laser etched in, and will vary in definition and finish depending on the part.
