12mm Axle H3 (2006-2008)
Gold cassette bodies have a smaller 12mm diameter axle. This cassette body was used on most HED wheels built approximately 2006 through Spring 2008. Spacer position and wheel dish are changed to accommodate the spacing differences from Shimano to Campagnolo.
Part #: WA026 - Shimano/SRAM 9, 10, 11-speed - H3 ONLY. *Discontinued
15mm Axle, 3-pawl Sonic hub (2009+)
2009-2015 HED Sonic hubs use a larger 15mm axle to increase stiffness and decrease weight. Available for Shimano 9/10/11-speed. End caps are specific to cassette configuration. NOTE: The Shimano 11 version is intended as a replacement cassette body for hubs that were originally sold as 11-speed compatible. If you want to upgrade an older HED hub to 11-speed, you will need to look at our 11-speed conversion kit web page. Note also that Sonic hubs have a 3-pawl drive mechanism.

Both the 545 and Brickhouse use a new super-durable 5-pawl cassette body, with 15mm axle. This is available in three versions: Campagnolo 9/10/11/12-speed, Shimano HG/SRAM 9/10/11-speed, and SRAM XD Driver. Wheel will need to be dished when converting to/from Campy.
