    One is dry, the other is wet.
    Erm, that's pretty much the gist of it, believe it or not.

    Dry lube dreis once it's applied to form a protective layer, wet lube doesn't.

    wet lube would be my reccomendation, its good allround lube for most conditions you get in the uk

    Except dusty conditions - wet lube attracts dust like flies to poopoo, forming a nice abrasive paste on your drive train. But dry lube washes off really quickly when it's wet... Horses for courses!

    the descriptions also describe the conditions they are intended for:

    Wet = wet weather/conditions
    Dry = dry weather/conditions
