    Converting 1x9 to 1x11 -- Freehub question

    I have Easton EA70 XCT wheels that are currently setup with a 1x9 drivetrain, and my cassette is currently an XT. I'm looking to increase my gearing. Would a Shimano 11 speed cassette fit on my freehub, or am I maxed out at 10 speeds unless I get a new wheelset/freehub? I know SRAM requires an XD driver for their 11 speed cassettes, but I do not know if an 11 speed Shimano cassette will physically fit on a freehub that can take a 9 speed cassette with no spacer.

    Thanks

    11 speed Shimano MTB cassettes fit on a 10 speed freehub. Road cassettes do not.

    Sweet -- I guess I don't have to take the plunge on a wheelset upgrade just yet, then. Thanks for the help.
