Micro Spline to HG

Is it possible to swap out the original micro spline body on my XT, 12mm thru axle hub with an HG body? Id like to run my old, 10-speed drivetrain.

Possibly. take a look at the two free hub bodies and if the attachment is the same then you are good.

this says.. No way.


"Shimano's microspline hubs use an entirely different freehub mechanism than their HG hubs. You can't convert them. You can't even make one of their microspline hubs take an HG or xD freehub body".
