What is the material of the freehub? or is there any special coating?

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:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_spraying

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.
