Take it to 11.
Industry Nine's wheels are much like SRAM's XX1 components -- they're both modern takes on traditional designs. Because XX1 thinks outside the box, it requires a specific freehub body. Industry Nine offers its XD Driver to convert any I-9 wheel to be compatible with XX1 cassettes.
The XD Driver is machined from aluminum and weighs about ten grams less than a standard freehub body. It has fresh bearings installed, along with the pawls and springs -- so it's a straightforward swap. It does require some mechanical knowledge, and I-9's site features instructions. If you feel intimidated by them, we recommend having a qualified mechanic perform the XD1 Driver Body swap.
There are two versions of the Industry Nine XD Driver one for wheels from '06 till '12 and one for '13 and newer.
- Converts mountain bikes to SRAM one-by drivetrains
- Two models to accommodate past- and current-gen Industry Nine wheels

Convert to Sram

Make your awesome i9 wheels compatible with SRAM 11/12 speed drivetrains. I've swapped out the drivetrain from on two sets of i9 hubs and have not had any problems.
Does the I9 Torch driver ('13 and Newer) include the required end cap to make the switch from a 10 speed driver to a XD driver.
It will use the same endcap if you are talking axle. If you're talking cassette, its built into the cassette on the XD cassettes.
Either way, this should be all you need unless you are changing axle sizes too.
This thing is driving the hell out of my new XX1 build. I love it.
Don't get stranded!!!!!

i love my torch trail wheels. our relationship is as if i was dating a stripper. the things are totally hot, but i never know what might happen leaving me out in the cold. more specifically, i have blown up two sets of bearing so far and it is a know defect I9 is working though.
