Will Aksiums work with 1x11?

Apologies for the basic question but I'm thinking about changing the Roccia wheel on my PX London Road to some Aksiums I have sitting around doing nothing. They were originally fitted to my Synapse with a Shimano 11 speed cassette. Will they work with a Sram Apex 11 speed cassette?

Also, I see that it's recommended to only use up to 32mm tyres on the Aksiums - does anyone run them with anything wider?
You can fool some of the people all of the time. Concentrate on those people.

    Depends on the cassette. If the smallest cog is a 10 tooth unit, that would mean it won't work as it'll require an XD freehub.

    You can use any other sram/shimano cassette though, as long as it has 11 cogs and isn't for an XD freehub..

    Looking at current PX london road spec, they aren't using an XD cassette so you should be fine.
