    XX1 Cassette on Shimano Hub

    I've looked and looked but cannot find a straightforward answer if an XX1 cassette will fit on my Shimano FH-M595 rear hub. I apologize in advance here but I'm still learning and have decided to build an all mountain rig. I know for sure that I want an XX1 drivetrain. This would probably be the first thing I buy and I want to try it out on my current bike, hence the fitting question.

    Anyone ever try this or and I missing something here?

    Thanks.

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    XX1 requires a special freehub. Unlikely Shimano is going to license a major competitors design. No mention of it in a Google.

    Damn... New question... What freehubs do fit the XX1 cassette? Is there a size I should keep an eye for?

    Pretty sure that the XX1 driver is open source, just like all other freehub styles.
