With a DZNuts Embrocation application to start the day, I know exactly how I'll feel when I start to accelerate, and when the first ten strokes are history. Easy warmups and easy early miles without concern of over flexing or stress. Dialing in the leg strength needed on any given day can change, so different strengths of the product might be helpful for different environments of the day. ie. wet, very dry, cold, warm or hot.
Have used different forms of creams for decades as I like the warmth in my legs when the temp drops below 60. Which happens often here in Seattle. Ok, I understand the brand name could be seen as adolescent, although it does have links to racer Dave Zabriskie who is a goofy guy. A little goes a long way, it keeps my legs warm, and best thing to me versus other brands is the tube which makes for very easy dispensing.
Also this doesn't seem to catch as much road grit on my legs as other creams I have used in the past. The smell is fine for me too. I have also used a light amount on my feet for rides below 40 degrees.
Big tip... Always, always, always apply on your chamois cream first!!! When using knicker bibs be careful when applying above the knee caps near your inner thighs. You will know it if you get this stuff on your chamois. I have done so and road anyway it wasn't painful or damaging, but it was VERY noticeable. When using with regular shorts I put shorts on and then roll up the legs to apply.
Watch your hand after applying. Grabbing water bottles tops, glasses, rubbing eyes, picking your nose or brushing your lips with a hand you applied cream with and you will feel a burn.
I've been cycling for over 10 years and for the past fives years DZ Nuts InHeat has made riding year round warming and so incredibly enjoyable when it's cold outside. Through the years, I have shared my love for this products with other cyclists, runners and almost anyone that works outdoors in colder temps or for those of us that simply enjoy the outdoors more than being in front of the television during the winter months. Everyone I've recommended this stuff to has loved it and shared with their family, friends and colleagues that are active outdoor enthusiasts. NOTE Use as instructed! Read the labels and warning. If you took bottled water and placed in the fuel tank of your car, this doesn't mean that the water is bad to drink because it destroyed your car's engine, it simply means that the water should be used as intended. DZ Nuts DZ InHeat is Great stuff! Yes...keep this stuff away from your genitals, eyes and other sensitive body parts when using.
I used it once and threw it out. I guess I got some on my hands while rubbing it into my thighs. Somehow I touched my privates and then realized I screwed up big time. This stuff burns big time. I found out that you put shorts on first. then rub it on, then never pee I guess. Not for me.. It burns like hell.
