Fulcrum freehub compatibility

Hi, I need to replace the freehub on an old (2016) Racing 5 DB wheel, which is setup for 12mm thru axle. I assume the replacement part is the RS-113 but that says it is for 17mm axle, does anyone know if that will fit when I have a 12mm thru axle?

Also, the fulcrum RS-113 is very expensive, but there are plenty of much cheaper alternatives that look exactly the same (at least, the online photo does). Are they all the same standard and interchangable? The cheapest is the Brand-X Trail Wheelset HG Freehub, and there is also Progress Freehub For Hub XCD and vitus M5ER.
thanks in advance, steve

I tried a couple of different freehubs and annoyingly they did not fit, there is no standard even if they look very similar!
Also, the RS-113 does fit my wheel with 12mm thru axle
Just answering myself in case someone googles this in the future!!

Thanks for the follow-up. My wife has Fulcums, but not thru axles, and this reminds me that I need to find a replacement for the parts bin.

You were aware that you can just change the bearings for that freehub, Iíve done so a couple of times. There are a couple of YouTube videos which show you how.
