Planet X Stealth - 12 speed cassette

Looking to go 1x on my Planet X Stealth tri bike, has anyone swapped to a 12 speed cassette and installed an xdr freehub? Is it possible?

Not sure.
But I contacted Planet X once, and they can give pretty good advice for what you exactly need.

Pretty sure that stuff is mostly dependent on your wheelsets you plan to use. Not the frameset. The dropout width is the same, the smallest cog would still clear the seat stay and chain stay........so shouldn't matter. You'd just need to dedicate to the hub update on the wheels you plan to use, and associated hardware like the derailleur and shifter.

I found this in a super quick Google search from a cheap wheel seller:

Have you considered staying with the current gear count you’re running (10 or 11?), and just changing the tooth count on a couple of the gears in the cassette? That would save you from having to get a new shifter, and possibly re-dishing the wheel.

No re-dishing required......Quote from wheel maker I posted:

An XDR driver will allow you to fit a 12-speed cassette on a freehub that is just as wide as an 11-speed cassette. That means you’ll just need to pop one in, fit your cassette, and not need to worry about having your wheel re-dished. It is also worth noting that because the XDR driver is based around the 11 speed HG freehub it is 1.8mm longer than the XD driver.

Thanks all, I was looking to go sram etap, the 1st gen are really hard to come by and the new AXS are 12 speed only. The issue seems to be finding an XDR freehub that fits the wheelset that my stealth has. Will contact Planet X
