11 speed 10 speed compatability

Postby davegriffiths » Mon Nov 11, 2013 21:48 pm

Looking at buying a Domane 4.7 with 11 speed Ultegra does anyone know if I can run 11 speed cassette on 2012 Ksyrium elites or can i fit a wider freehub

Thanks Dave

Yes, Mavic freehubs have been longer than Shimano for quite a while so they are 11 speed compatible. Just remove all spacers on the freehub when mounting the cassette.

Technically they are slightly different but in practice they are completely interchangeable in my experience.
