    11 speed XX1 cassette at an Eagle setup

    Hi

    I have bought a new bike with XX1 Eagle 12 speed setup but I still have a brand new XX1 11 speed cassette in stock.

    Is it possible to use the 11 speed cassette directly in the Eagle setup or with a 11 speed shifter (and still with the Eagle derailleur) ??

    According to sram, the eagle derailleur not compatible with previous shifters.

    Thanks. Does this mean, if I change the derailleur to 11 speed, it would work or do I have to replace the shifter as well ??

    Would need to do shifter as well. Eagle only works with Eahle, so using any 11sp part would require change of other 2 parts.
    Only way to do a change without changing everything over would be to use something like Archer Components D1x on your bike. Electronic shifting that can allow for any derailleur to be used with any cassette (as long as the cage clears the cogs).
    I have one on my RIP9...works great
