I have bever tried any other brand because Assos has been a natural favorite of mine since I fisrt tried it in the 90's. Its so good that I wont consider trying anything else.no chafing, no irritation, and nice soothing tingling effect.
Thicker consistency, goes on easy, doesn't smell bad. I originally used this product a few years ago with great success, very few saddle sores. My last tub ran out and I switched to a different brand that I wasn't completely happy with, so I'm sticking with this!
This chamois cream is worth the money. Previously, I used Butt Buttr. It worked fine, but never seemed to last on longer rides. Assos lasts longer and I need less of it and it seems to stay on my chamois not soaked into, hence the value.
I NEVER start a ride without smoothing on Assos Chamois cream on my sit points and other close by regions. As I reseult even though the majority of my rides are under 50 miles I NEVER get saddle sores or anything nasty related to sitting in my bike seat
I've tried many chamois cremes. This is by far the best. If I use it, I never have a problem with chafing or rash. If I don't use it, I'm very likely to get either, or both, of the aforementioned. I've tired many other products but none work as well as the Assos brand. It's a little more expensive but not that much more. If you want the best protection possible, this is the go to.
I've done century rides and beyond using this product and it's protected me completely. If you have decent riding shorts, I don't believe that it's necessary for shorter rides, say under 25 or 30 miles. Nevertheless, I use it on every ride. That's just in case I decide to increase the distance on a ride,
Recommendation watch for the occasional sales on this product and then stock up.
