I am an avid cyclist (3,000 miles/year) and never really had a need chamois cream. I guess as I've gotten older (60) the skin loses elasticity or something because I started having issues. Well, this goop (recommended by my LBS) is the fountain of youth. The menthol peppermint thing was weird at first but now I won't ride without it. I even use it on the indoor trainer.
Have tried many chamois creams such as Paceline, Assos, and DZ nuts, but IMO Enzos Button hole beats them all. It has a nice thick consistency, a negligible scent and minimal tingle which isn't overwhelming when applied. It's done its job over 50-60 mile rides in the sweltering heat and in weather in the 40's. When you can grab a deal at Western Bike Works, it's an absolute steal!
Not sure what held me back from chamois butter so long..... It's absolutely amazing! I was tired of the friction and saddle sores, so I have this a whirl. LOVE IT! And the menthol is a really good feel too, very soothing.... Just trying to figure out how exactly to apply it.... Seems best right before pulling the bib straps up
Enzo's is one of my favorite chamois cremes. Quite thick, it lasts better than most for those longer rides. The peppermint and menthol give a little tingle to the skin, but not too much.
Comes in a nice jar, so you don't waste any like the squeeze tubes.
I use this chamois cream before every ride and it has totally alleviated any type of saddle sores I used to get. I'm sure the guys behind me also appreciate the peppermint fragrance too! Excellent tingling sensations. I won't use any other chamois cream.
