I use Assos Chamois Creme on longer rides, and on shorter rides if I have not ridden in awhile. It is non-greasy, does not take much to do the job, and provides fast relief when applied during a long ride.
I have tried numerous chamois cremes and this is my favorite. Much less problems with sores and lasts longest. The cost does not matter when it comes to preventing sores, but I donï¿½t use as much as other thinner cremes.
Still the best chamois creme available. I've used a lot of them and there was only one that was ever better, but it never got traction and disappeared.
I go back to real leather chamois, so lots of experience.
I do lots of century rides and Assos is my go to.
I used to use a different brand and always viewed Assos as too expensive. But now that I'm using it, I have to admit, this is way better. I think it is worth the price, too. This is so much thicker than the previous creme I used to buy, so I don't use as much every time I apply it on. So in the end, they even out in price. And once I have it on, it doesn't feel like I wet myself. The other brand made it feel kind of squishy in the beginning. I can't imagine using any other creme.
I use this product for my usual jaunts which may last for 1-3 hours. With a good pair of liner shorts, this creme is a great addition for maximizing comfort on the saddle. It's a bit pricey, but I think it's worth it for the comfort and protection it provides. I highly recommend it. I have purchased this product several times.
Iï¿½ve tried many brands, small batch stuff, and mass produced stuff. Always keep some of this on hand though.
Proï¿½s: reduces friction more effectively than other products Iï¿½ve tried, cooling feeling, easy application
Cons: can clump up when applying,
This stuff is not particularly cheap, but itï¿½s also not expensive either. Be generous when applying, apply to yourself and rub more into the chamois. Using this letï¿½s me use bibs that are close to their end of life when the chamois has seen better days. I do try other brands, and while they are useable, i always keep this around as itï¿½s consistently high performing. Sores no more :-) !
I have only tried two chamois "creme" products. The first one may have worked but the Assos product absolutely works. If you are not familiar with the use of chamois "creme" products then you will just have to guess how they are used. I have used the Assos product for about 12 years (probably about 60,000 miles). The price is a bit high compared to some of the other products but cheap is never quality and quality is never cheap. I
I wont dare ride without Assos cream, viscosity is great for long, hot, humid rides!
Im a roadie and my average rides are 50 miles. I tried many other brands and always come back to Assos!
I've been using Assos Chamois Creme for many years without issues so I keep buying it. I've tried other brands but always return to Assos, even though it costs a bit more. This stuff works whether I'm riding for 1 hour or 15 hours. Always reapply after 4-6 hours in any kind of weather. It's a gift that keeps on giving mile after mile.
