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.
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 decided to give the Assos 'premium chamois cream' a run and it did not disappoint. Yes, it's costly especially considering the size is smaller than some other leading competitors, but the performance will not disappoint. Note that the consistency is slightly thicker which may cause some creme to fall down to the floor upon application if you're not careful and you step in in on your clean floor. ;)
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'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.
This cream is thicker than most others, so it's a bit harder to apply. The older version (which had a blue tinge -- no longer available) was a bit creamier. Assos holds up well for longer rides but so does DZ Nuts, which works better for me when I'm feeling particularly sensitive down below. For rides shorter than 40-45 miles Chamois Butt'r or Docs do the job and cost less.
Great cream that helps prevent saddle soreness on my everyday rides, before using the Assos cream my 20-25 mile daily rides were a little uncomfortable. Now way more enjoyable and I get a cooling sensation as a bonus.
Wouldn't ride with out using.
