I wonder about this as well. That wheelset appears to have been introduced in 2015, seems odd it wouldn't be 11 speed, especially since it was advertised as 11 speed:foo:

It is hard to grasp, isn't it? I don't know if it's geometry, trig or some other such but it's beyond me as well. Maybe someone who understands these things can explain it.:thumb:
