Eleven speed cassette interchange?

I'm about to buy a indoor trainer. Most come with a shimano free hub body and a campag free hub body is an extra. My problem is my girl friend runs eleven speed shimano and I run eleven speed campag. So is it confirmed that if I put a shimano 11 speed cassette we can both use the trainer?

    Yes. 11-speed Shimano and Campag (and SRAM) cassettes are compatible.

    To be honest, when I last ran SRAM on a Campag cassette it wasn't quite as perfect as running it with the SRAM cassette but that was without any tinkering with indexing etc and it was perfectly usable.

    Thanks. Why would you use a campag cassette with Sram? They are so overpriced compared to sram and shimano cassettes.

    Presumably because he had a Campag wheel? I have both and swap fairly regularly; not really had any issues with SRAM cassette on Super Record, or Campag cassette on Di2, so I'd say don't worry about it.

    I run Campag cassette with SRAM setup, no bother, going to change to Potenza 32/11 with longer derailleur, just wondered if the spacing on this was the same.

    All 11-speed road cassettes from all vendors are sufficiently close in spacing to be interchangeable.
