Options for 11s Campy disc compatible hubs?

Anybody here running 11s Campy and discs?

Ideally 135 rear spacing. Seems my best option is to find a company that makes 135 disc mountain hubs and Campy freehub bodies and convert them.

Looks like my best option is DT 240 mtb disc hubs converted to Campy
I've read good things about Novatec hubs and they are cheap. Anybody using these?

I posted this question somewhere else and it seems like DT 240s are the best option...just curious if there are any other options.

Okay did a little more searching and found these: http://www.bdopcycling.com/Hubs-CX.asp

Sounds promising...I'll do some more research on these hubs to confirm they fit Campy 11 and see how they hold up, but the few reviews I've seen look decent.

I can confirm that they hold up well and are light but I can't speak to Campy 11.

I have a Vuelta Corsa wheelset that use rebranded Novatec hubs on the road. They have been every bit as good (if slightly heavier) than my carbon race wheels (DT240s on Easton SLX90s). I'd highly recommend them for cross; they work very well and are cheap so easy to replace if you do manage to ruin them.

ocnsider the DT 350 ~ is fine too --- a lot less $ than the 240s - comes in center lock & 6 bolt--- Freehub body interchanges with 180,240s though you might have to buy it as I don't think it sells configured with a campy FH body the way 240's do.

Given Campag dropped out of the 135 MTB thing a decade + ago,
consider 3rd party hubs
like White Or Chris King and specify the Campag freehub driver
to use your Campag Cassettes.

For some reason, WI is only offering Campy disc hubs in 130. King 135 disc hubs are in the pipeline I hear.

I think I'm leaning towards DT 350 or maybe even trying those Novatec hubs...

Now I just need to figure out rims and spoke count! I weigh 165lbs, this bike will see mostly gravel roads / dirt roads and maybe a few cross races. I want durable but relatively lightweight. Most likely clinchers. Don't need brake tracks. My other gravel grinder / cross wheels are silver campy hubs laced to 36h Open Pro rims...bullet proof but not light by any stretch of the imagination! Off to do some rim research...

Lighter Vs Durable .. add in rider weight and intended abuse..

I note every spring for Paris Roubaix they get out the 32hole wheels 3X hard anodized sewup rims .

Unless there is a sponsor that has something to prove with their product.

I wonder if one of those 3rd party cassettes that are spaced for Campy 11, but have the splines for Shimano would help you out. They do make those, right?

I know there were some (Miche maybe?) for 10 speed, but I'm not sure about 11.

I think for this built I want to do it right and not have any workarounds...I've got Shimergo (Campy 10 Ergos, otherwise Shimano drivetrain with 8s cassette on XT disc hubs) on my other disc brake bike and it works fine, but this bike will be special

Is there any reason why a 130-spaced Campy hub with a couple mm of spacers couldn't do the job?

he is a member here.

i haven't had those hubs myself, but hear good things about them. The non disc version is often paired with carbon rims for a budget race wheelset. Most campy compatible hubs work with 11 and I don't see why these would be any different. I know I've seen their road hubs with 11spd cassettes.
