The Goldtech hub is a two part hub similar to the hope Ti hub with a grade 5 titanium axle and two 7075 flanges bonded onto each end. The hub is mega stiff under drive loads and well sealed against crud & water ingretion. It runs in oil (not grease) and ticks really loadly but who cares. Cleaning it is a brease you just pull the freewheel off (literally) clean off the insides and re-assemble. It also has an oil injection port to flush the roller and ball bearing set inside. The ball-bearing set comes with about 0.5 mm of play in it which is a little disconcerting but the bearings have lasted over 18 months without so much as a squeak and still run as smoothe as when I bought it despite the mud/sand/rain of Northern England. 360 grms is not light for a rear hub when some roll of the production line at 280 grms but it has very high quality materials and hasn't complained at some of the ridiculous smacks its had to withstand. All good stuff.
