Proper cycling gear is a must for professional and recreational cyclists to be both safe and comfortable when riding.
Most cyclists have helmets, shoes, gloves and cycling shorts, but they’re missing out on one final important piece of cycling gear – Chamois Butt’r® Chamois Cream!
Lots of non-cyclist often joke about riders walking around in tight bike shorts but cycling specific shorts with a chamois play an important role for riders – the chamois in the seat of the shorts is padding to help reduce discomfort while in the saddle.
Chamois cycling shorts with a chamois make a huge difference compared to regular shorts. They improve aerodynamics, there is no loose fabric around to impede smooth leg movement and the pad keeps things padded.
The final piece of cycling gear that smart riders use is chamois cream – cream for the chamois padding in the shorts.
“A random survey shows only 20% of riders are using Chamois Cream.”
Now you’re probably wondering. What is Chamois Cream and how do I use it?
Chamois cream is a skin lubricant designed to reduce friction when riding to help protect against chafing and saddle sores and to generally improve riding comfort.
Applying chamois cream is easy. Apply liberally to skin and chamois of the shorts before each ride. It can also be applied to any skin areas that rub together or against clothing.
There are various chamois creams on the market, but Chamois Butt’r® is the original non-greasy chamois cream and the favorite of professional and recreational cyclists. Why? Because it’s manufactured with quality ingredients following good manufacturing practice guidelines and easily washes off skin and out of shorts with soap and water.
