    Swapping DT Swiss Wheelset (Shimano --> Sram)

    I have a DT Swiss wheelset for a hardtail with Shimano components and need to set it up for a 1x11 Sram GX for my Transition. Any creative ways to do this or is swapping the freehub body the only way? I am looking for creative/cost effective solutions to swap wheelsets for the bikes. Thanks!

    If you want to run a 1x11 Sram cassette then you need the XD driver.
    But if you have a 1x11 Shimano cassette on now you can leave it there and run it with a Sram derailleur and shifter if you wish.

    Thanks all! Looks like I'll get the freehub body for the DT swiss wheels and swap over my 11 spd shimano cassette. For the other set, I'll just get a sram 10spd cassette (cheap) and continue to use the SLX components for the hardtail. Thanks all!

    SRAM does have the NX PG-1130 11 speed cassette that fits a Shimano styled freehub. It does NOT use the XD Driver.
