Year ago I bought Mavic XC 717 with Shimano XT HB-M756 front hub (6 bolt disc mounts). I'm planing to buy a new fork which will have 15mm or 20mm Thru Axle. I guess it will not fit on my HB-M756 hub.
Is there any adapter for that situation or I must buy a new front hub? Which new Shimano's front hub will suit me?
Right now I have Magura Marta 160/160 IS set.

Tnx for answers!

There is no adaptor for Shimano hubs to go from 9mm QR to 15mm or 20mm TA. You will have to buy a new hub.

HB-M778 for 15mm TA
HB-M776 for 20mm TA

Unfortunately all of Shimano's new hubs only come with the centerlock interface for mounting rotors. You will therefore also need to buy a centerlock adaptor to mount your existing rotors. Magura makes a fairly good one, but it is compatible only with their SL rotors. Alternately Magura makes a centerlock version of their Ventidisc rotor if you don't want to deal with an adaptor.
