Rotor 11spd cassette on shimano ultegra 10spd freehub?

Hi,

I want to upgrade my Ultegra 10spd cassette for a rotor 11spd one. Will this work or do I have to buy a new freehub body?

Many Thanks

Bikes: '96 Litespeed Catalyst, '05 Litespeed Firenze, '06 Litespeed Tuscany, '20 Surly Midnight Special, All are 3x10. It is hilly around here!

The Rotor 11-speed cassette requires an 11-speed compatible freehub body according to Rotor's web site:
  • Designed to fit Shimano/SRAM 11 road freehub body standard.
So, no, it won't fit your 10-speed freehub body. You will need an 11-speed Shimano freehub body for your current hub or a new 11-speed compatible rear wheel.

Don't forget to put 11 speed shifters and derailleurs in your cart.

or just run a shimano 11-34 11 speed cassette instead. They fit 10 speed freehub bodies.

But why go cheap, only $50 instead of $750...

ref to Rotor being even prouder of their cassettes than SRAM is of its Reds
