Is 11 speed spacing all the same?

I occasionally interchange Campag 10v cassettes with Shimano 10v without any issues. I think the spacing is off a bit but it's close enough to not cause an issue.

Do the 11v cassettes interchange (not spline, but functionality)?

Granted, I'm not exactly sure, but considering the spacing has remained mostly the same between 10-spd and 11-spd, the amount of variance has likely been reduced. Shimano went 1.85mm wider on their 11-spd. I'd think that the two systems are super, super close now, leading me to believe they would work fine.

Probably pretty darn similar in terms of tooth width and spacing of the cogs. There is only so much space available. I am guessing that Shimano derailleurs may work better with Campagnolo cassettes than the other way due to the centre on top pulley of Shimano. Interestingly, I recently changes from ten speed XTR to eleven speed SRAM XX1. I had to straighten the hanger because the system was shifting badly. Worked fine all crooked with the Shimano setup.

I run 10 speed campy shifters with 8 speed shimano cassettes that seem to run smoother than 9 or 10 speed cassettes (less missed shifts if any at all) but I've been curious how well 11 speed shifters work with shimano cassettes.

I've run various combination of 8, 9, 10 speed Campgnolo/ Shimano shifters and cassettes without much issue. I've got a Campy 11v bike and want to run one of my Shimano splined wheels w/ Shimano cassette if it will work. There isn't a Campy hub available for the wheel yet.

Yes, 11 speed wheels are now interchangeable. No more Campy/Shimano wheel worries. Use whatever 11-speed you want.

In fact I think Leonard Zinn is writing a compatibility report but one trick for some Shimano 10 speed wheel owners. Where a Campy freehub body is available to swap with a shimano free hub that you swap a campy for the shimano and use a campy 11 speed cassette. It is easier than converting to a shimano 11 speed body and re-spacing and re-dishing the wheel.

meh, even easier than I thought... I even ran a Sram 10v wheel mated with my 11v Chorus shifters and it worked well enough for a decent ride.
