I'm looking at a set of Mavic Kysrium Equipe S wheels from ProBikeKit & noticed they are compatible with Shimano 11 speed Dura Ace.
I have 10 speed Shimano 105 & I'm wondering if they are backwards compatible & will it need a spacer?
I currently have a set of Shimano R500 wheels that need a spacer for the 10 speed cassette, are all spacers equal?

I imagine they'll come with one, my mavic wheel set came with the spacers needed, as did a mates too.

All spacers are not equal.

Ask the Rapha users how much better theirs are.  3

Hey up muddy!

A quick google suggests that 10 speed Shimano hubbery isn't compatible with 11 speed. You could check out further, but I think Shimano are not compatible.

Mavic are though.

...and look at you with your Dura-Ace 11 speed!

Hiya! No Dura Ace for me I'm afraid - strictly plebeian 105 for me!
So, am i right in understanding that Mavic hubs will accept Shimano 105 10 speed cassettes? Getting confused now, MTB 's are difficult enough!

No problem with 10 speed. Click that button!

No probs fitting a 10 speed 105 cassette! You'll need to run the 1.75mm Mavic spacer along with a 1mm spacer.

Ride safe and enjoy!
