Very brief cassette/spacer question

Shimano 9/10/11 road Freehub. SRAM 1050 11-32 10 speed road cassette. Requires a 1.85mm spacer to fit the 10 speed SRAM cassette on the 11 speed Shimano hub, correct?

I bet it has been 15 years since Sram adopted Shimano specifications for cassettes. Shimano's 11 cassette is 1.85 wider than a 10 so I think you will need that spacer.

Correct.

Typically a 10 speed Shimano cassette would come with 1mm spacer to go on a 8-10 speed freehub. When you are putting this cassette on an 11 sp hub you would use both the 1mm and the 1.85mm spacers.
I canít say for sure if the SRAM cassette follows this convention though

SRAM 10-speed cassettes don't use the 1mm Shimano spacer. SRAM never intended their 10-speed cassettes to be compatible with 8- and 9-speed because they started at 10.
