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 :-) !
This isn't a glamorous product, but it can make a huge difference in your comfort on long rides, especially in hot weather, Reduces chafing and somehow makes the chamois less evident. The price is surprisingly high, but in line with other similar products.
