    Looking to put an XX1 kit on a 2013 Zaskar, who makes the rear hub?

    The website info says "All Terra Lightweight Alloy, 4 Sealed Bearing, Disc, Cassette, w/ Quick Release"

    A google search comes up with nothing, so I'm assuming its a re-branded shimano or something, at least the free hub portion that must be replaced to use the XX1 cassette.

    Does anyone know which XX1 driver I'd have to buy to use these wheels? Or do I have to build a new wheel around a Chris King hub I have in my basement?

    Not entirely sure, but I think you'll need a new hub that will take the 11 speed freewheel thingby. Unless your CK hub is new then it won't work either as at the end of last year they didn't make a hub to suit, but they may do now.

    Yea the hub itself shouldn't have to be changed, just the part that sticks out and accepts the cogs.

    What I'm asking is who makes the hubs on the GT, so I can buy their XX1 specific free hub that bolts to the main body of their hub.

    Shimano, DT, Chris King, SRAM (obviously).

    Most all manufacturers. Read more here. Manufacturer Round Up: Who?s Making SRAM XX1 Drivers & What Are the Design Challenges?

    thats not most all manufactures, that most name brand manufactures. Not no-name brand manufacturers.
    I seem to recall that CK said on facebook that they weren't doing one, but that may have changed (or maybe it was something else), but i had read that link before hence reaffirming that they may not do it, something about them not being able to make it to their own standards or something.

    But since you already seem to know about it all, just whip the cassette and freebody off and see if it says anything.

    I would, but I haven't picked up the bike yet. Does anyone have one that can whip it off for me?
