Fenwick's Wet Conditions Lube is a synthetic blend with an exceptional high polymer and ester content.
Fenwick's Dry Conditions Lube is s specific blend of synthetic ingredients with additives to reduce corrosion (corrosion inhibitors antioxidants and metal deactivators) anti wear and friction modifiers anti static and a little extra to reduce evaporation. Synthetic oils are far superior to mineral oils (petrol chemical based) in reducing friction wear corrosion and their longevity due to the ability to be perfectly blended to bespoke formulas gives them the desired mechanical and chemical properties.For bicycles wet style lubes offer the most protection as the operating temperatures necessary for solid particles in dry lubes i.e. PTFE graphite etc are rarely reached to maintain their mobility. Therefore once the dry particles have been pushed away from the touching surfaces then they do not return.The environment plays a major roll as contaminates soon become introduced. The oils ability to cope which such conditions depends upon the blend of additives used to construct the oil. As conditions in the UK vary so wildly from one day to the next it is very difficult to be able to provide the perfect lube. Compromises can be made but that's not good enough for today's racing enthusiast and avid cyclist.The Benefits: Smoother quieter functioning bike. Increased protection against corrosion. Decreased wear. Increased maintenance periods. Reduced environmental contamination i.e. cleaner operation. Environmental benefits are less waste oil lower volumes used more tenacious therefore less trail contamination.
