There are not too many posts about the Wilderness Energy brushless hubs, but I thought I might post something after hearing about the problems with Bionix and CrystaLYTE.
This is my second winter with the hub and so far it has proved to be pretty much bullet proof. I bike 1000 kilometres a month from March/April to November/December and a bit less during the snowy season. The hub has been on 3 different bikes and has proved to be remarkable.
Although the hub itself is sealed, I can't say as much for the accelerator and controller. I put a plastic bag over the former and a disposable plastic glove over the latter when it rains or snows. If wet, the controller will give Hall effect and much worse the accelerator when wet gives full speed only and won't stop when turned off. Good brakes are required.
I'm building up a new bike this winter and I'm thinking of using a rear hub this time. I'm thinking of the CrystaLYTE Journey 36V.
