11 spd road v mountain cassette stack height?

Is there a difference in the stack height of an 11 speed mountain and road cassette? Anecdotal evidence says yes there is a slight difference (mountain cassette being a tad bit shorter, but I've never seen any authoritative source on the subject.

TIA!

11 speed mountain cassette will fit on a 10 speed freehub because the biggest cog is dished.

The cog spacing is exactly the same, so the height of the cassette is the same. If you are referring to the interface with the freehub body, the MTB cassette has a 1.85mm shorter interface to allow mounting on a 8/9/10 speed freehub body with the largest cog overhanging the end.

Interesting. Great hack to get a wide range 11s cassette onto an older 10s wheel.

Another useful option for that is the Shimano 11-34 11-speed cassettes also fit on 10s wheels.

And now there appears to be two variants of the 11-34 11 spd cassette: HG700 and HG800. The 700 is more or
less the 105 equivalent and the 800 an Ultegra though neither are styled as such. Both fit on 10spd road hubs
and with the supplied spacer on 11 spd road hubs.
