Recently the board software has been updated and there are some known bugs/failures:
- Avatars are currently not being displayed
- Tapatalk connection is currently broken

Those bugs will be fixed ASAP (next few days) as they are unfortunately more serious than expected.

It's 'Plasma Treated', whatever that means.

The mechanical engineer in me says 'plasma treated' is probably just a fancy name for plasma spraying, which you can learn more about here:

I'm not an expert on materials but given the needs of that particular application ( hardness to prevent notching, not much shear or shock impact forces) I'd strongly suspect that was a ceramic of some kind. aternatively it could be some sort of metal oxide. Highly doubt it's a metal alloy, there are better ways to go about that.

Thank you for the replies!

Besides, the flanges look like plastic :roll: (of course it is not)

Carbon looks like plastic too, but works.
Campy / Fulcrum have been using that same basic hub shell design for a while now and I doubt the material has changed much other than color. The hubs work work well and build a surprisingly nible wheelset. The gray looks pretty good.
