Pretty sure they had moved to DT Swiss by Gen II. Obermayers have always been Tune.

Lightweight wheels all use DT Swiss internals since the Generation 2.
Standards receive 240s internal and Obermayer receive 190cc.

Best regards,
Adrien Gontier.

Adrien, are you sure about that?

I thought that the initial Gen. II Obermayers used a Tune (internals) rear hub, as did Ventoux Tune. Later in Gen. II, I thought that Obermayer switched to DT 190 rear internals, as did Ventoux Tune, which was eventually renamed Ventoux 190. All Gen. II Standards, as well as Ventoux DT (later renamed Ventoux 240) used DT 240s rear internals.

I have a pair of GEN III and i wonder if its possible to convert from 10 speed to 11 speed using the converter free hub that DT have on their web site?
And do i have to do something else with the hub to get it working?

Adrien, I hope you don't mind if I have to correct you a little:
When CarbonSports started production in 2004, for the very first wheels we used the same setup as Heinz Obermayer did: modified but original Shimano Dura Ace / Campagnolo Record hubs. One of the first modifications was to switch to DT for the "Standard" and "Ventoux (240)". For "Obermayer" and Ventoux (Obermayer) there were first used TUNE hubs (easily identifiable by the red freehub body - DT are all black).
That setup was unchanged until Feb. 2008 (Gen.III started September 2007) when we switched from TUNE to DT 190 Ceramic/DT 190s (depending on the wheel model).
