Roval Fusee SL - 11sp capable?

As the title says, can anybody help me verify if the Roval Fusee SL rear hub is 11sp capable?

Many 10 speed hubs are. Depending on whose 11 speed cassette is you wish to put on them. Some aren't. I've no idea specifically about Roval's.

Are they the same hub on all Fusee SL's or is that more about the rim and they come with all sorts of hubs? If you aren't certain whether it will fit an 11 speed cassette, then make sure it's a hub you can at least change the free hub on.

Do you have the wheels now? Is there a cassette on the wheel?

I do have the wheel set. It came off a 2013(?) Tarmac Pro. No cassette on it at the moment, but I'm guessing an 11sp cassette will work if I use a spacer? FWIW, the plan is to build up an old Tarmac for the trainer and going full R7000 / 105 group set on it.

If there is no cassette on at the moment just measure the freehub length 36.75mm = 11 speed, 34.95=10 speed only.

Do you have other bikes that you can compare the FH length to?
Sometimes the answer is under your nose.

Wait...what? Why would an 11 speed cassette need a spacer?

Haha....I think I got that part backwards!

Gotta grab a new battery for my caliper so I can check the hub length.

Thanks for the help guys!

I have a 2010 set of Roval Fusee SL 25 wheels that came on my Roubaix. I've been able to find replacement freehubs for my other wheels, but not Roval Fusee SL 25 wheels. I'd love to be able to use them , even if it means buying a new freehub. My Google-fu fails when I try to figure out if I can use these wheels. Hoping someon ehere can provide info for the OP and my own bad self.

Pretty sure I had those same wheels on my old 2010 Roubaix Pro, the free hub was just a DT-Swiss and was easily replaceable with an 11 speed. I tried it and didn't even have to redish the wheel.
