I'm buying a leftover 2017 TCR Advanced KOM and it comes with these wheels. The hub body is Shimano but I'm a campy guy. I used to mix and match shifters with cassettes years ago with mixed results.

I plan to put Record 11 speed on. Will I be able to use a Shimano cassette and will it shift ok? If not, I'm going bora ultra but they're so expensive.

Should have a DT Swiss hub. Probably DT 240 https://glorycycles.com/dt-swiss-11-spe ... ehub-body/ I dont think you can use your current cassette.

I don't think SLR1 had the dt swiss ratchet internals - was a regular pawl hub. SLR0 is star ratchet.

if it is the SLR1 that come with a TCR, I think it is a DT Swiss 370 hubs. 3 Pawls hub.

This is what Giant says
Hubs - Giant SLR 1 DBL WheelSystem; Pawl driver, [F] 16h [R] 21h

And I found this from Velo:

The rims and lacing systems are the same on both SLR 0 and SLR 1 wheels, but the SLR 1 is $1,000/set cheaper ($1,300 vs. $2,300/pr.). This is accomplished by dropping the SLR 0’s DT Swiss star-ratchet freehub system and Aerolite/Aerocomp bladed spokes in favor of the SLR 1’s standard freehub pawl system and Sapim Race/Laser round, butted spokes.

I have recently upgraded these wheels to Bora One 35s. The reason for that was that the SLR1 30mm has really really bad braking.

They require easily double if not more braking distance compared to the boras. However my brother owns the slr0 and says that they aren't too bad so maybe another option.

On a positive note they do roll wheel and the free hub is nice and loud (if you like that).

Out of curiosity, have you tried Campagnolo red pads with your Giant SLR wheels before drawing a conclusion?
