Needing some new winter wheels, thinking DT RR 1.2 rims (eyeleted R585's) on novatec hubs. But would quite like them to be compatible with the new shimano 11 speed group sets (assuming they come) which I think rules out the sokin/Mr_Ride hubs off ebay.

Does anyone know of any similar hubs (<300g, ~£60, pair)?

I not sure I know of any cheap 11 speed HG hubs. The DT RR1.2 are not called that any more. I think they are now called the RR465 and are a lot shallower than the RR585.

Bitex is making 11sp hubs but I have not seen them offered as individual hubs (vs in wheels) yet.

Think the 1.2 became the 585 (the link below says it's 585g and looks similar except the 585 isn't listed as having eyelets) , still undecided, the 440 looks good with an asymmetric rear too and a wider profile, just looking for stiffness and wear resistance.

Miche now have a 11 speed HG free hb body for the RG2 and Primato hubs. These hubs are excellent, not weight weenie though but now a whole lot more useful. They are available in 24 -26H drillings.

I kind of excited as it make shimano 11 speed more affordable.

Novatec 11spd specific hubs are now available in 24H and 28H and will also accept 10spd by using the supplied spacer.
