disc hub question

Hi all,
What's the difference in a Shimano XT hub between one with centerlock and one without?

Thanks.

i think centerlock is more of a shimano technology. then there is the IS 6 bolt pattern. i think there are even 5 bolts as well.

there are 5 bolts and I have even seen 4 bolts...Shimano made the lock ring that is just kind of stupid I think...most hubs and disc brake uses the standard 6 bolts. Shimano did that to their hubs as welll as their rotor to make people by both of their to make money.....but there are adaptor from lockring types to bolts.
