I have a set of Stans 340 rims built onto Fulcrum hubs that I currently run tubeless & love them.

I am looking at upgrading to 11spd but was wondering if I can swap the free hub over to 11spd as I don't really want to but new wheels. When I got the wheels they came with a Campy 10spd free hub but I swapped over to Shimano as that's my groupset, so I know the free hub is interchangeable, just not sure if the same hub can run with an 11spd free hub

    Why don't you stick the Campag freehub back? It will take 11 speed Campag cassettes (Athena, Chorus...), which are fully compatible with Shimano 6800 and 9000... job done at zero cost

    Thanks Paulo - I never knew that! I am looking at the Ultegra 6870 Groupset so this will be compatible with Campag 11spd Cassettes (Athena or Chorus). Will I need to change the chain?

    You should run a Campagnolo cassette with a campagnolo cassette. Chainset is irrelevant

    Appreciate the chainset is irrelevant, was wondering more about the actual chain as I thought campagnolo use different chains to Shimano / Sram (apologies for my ignorance but never used campag so have very little knowledge on them).

    Matching the chain to the cassette is a good plan, although I suspect it won't be overly different in the case of 11 speed
