Novatec and I believe American Classic hubs use a small steel insert on the aluminum hub bodies. Clever. The cog to hub body interface is steel, while majority of the body is aluminum for lightweight. Other mfg's should adopt assuming there is no patent barriers.


There are patent barriers to American Classic's approach: https://www.google.com/patents/US20080315679

But it seems Novatec and Bitex have found ways around it. However, if running 11 speed cassettes, why not use a Campagnolo freehub and cassette, especially if the wheels you want don't come with a good option for Shimano cassettes? A Chorus cassette is a lot less expensive than a SRAM XG-1190, ignoring the weight difference.

Didn't even think of that solution. Are you saying one could use a campy cassette on a sram chain and crankset without any issues?!

I have not tried it myself, but others, with far more tech clout than myself, have: http://www.velonews.com/2013/09/bikes-a ... ght_303199
