I have more problems than most with the effects of being in the saddle, in part because I put in 16-28 hour weeks on the bike consistently. I have tried most of the major brands and while I hate paying for it, assos is probably my favorite. I should also say that I had been using Hammer, which I liked but it is just a bit too thick and gritty and I reached a day where I could no longer tolerate the smell. I am also currently auditioning Betwixt which has a lot of potential and I may switch to it from Assos. Assos has an almost mousse-like texture, not liquidy like Chamois Buttr. This seems like a relatively ideal consistency for staying on, though I do still re-apply once on a 3 hour ride. It also has no smell and washes out of clothes really well. On the minus side, I can't totally tell, but it might have a little menthol in it, which is not something I love.
Great, albeit a little pricey...but, hey, it's Assos. This stuff is a little thicker than others, but a little goes a long way, so that's why it's in a smaller can. So if you're comparing with another brand that's bigger for less money, just know that this tends to last a similar amount of time.
Having used all sorts of products over the years, I am convinced that this stuff is the gold standard. Earlier this year I veered toward using Mad Alchemy products for a while, but just recently came back to the Assos and am now left wondering why I ever switched in the first place. There's just no comparison. It's not cheap, but can you really put a price on the well-being of your undercarriage?
I've used assess chamois cream for 18 years A little more expensive ,sometimes you can find on sale ,however the absolute best... I tried everything ... The ingredients work & are thicker with very high-quality ...don't be fooled by other products and seem to have air in them,Like cheap ice cream ...this is the absolute best for your bottom ...
Had biked for several years without using anything like this, but spotted it on a daily deal and figured I'd give it a try. I was used to not using chamois cream so I don't use it all the time, but if I've done some longer rides several days in a row and I notice some discomfort, I'll put some of this on for the next ride and it takes care of things for me. Does give a slight cooling sensation within the first few minutes of applying it, but once I start riding I simply don't notice it, which is what I want. Don't need to use very much for it to work, and since I don't use it all the time I still have about three-quarters left. Since I bought it over a year ago it's been a great value for me! -)
