I am a strong proponent of double blind testing algorithms. I havent seen any for these products and wonder why some of those English cycling sites havent done any direct comparisons, you know, cheek to cheek tests. Until then, this is my favorite, thanks to Kelly Aicher. I will be eternally grateful.
I use chamois cream for every ride. It lessens friction in all my bibs, its not too greasy, lasts all day, has a slight warming quality on winter days, and its euro smell isnt overwhelming. Finally, its cost per ride is lower than any other cream.
Ladies, if you have issues with things getting a little raw down there, get this stuff. I had no idea it exists until I was complaining about unwanted numbness and stuff going on. She said try chamois butter. What. A. Difference.
I've tried a few and this one is my favorite. the viscosity and weight of this stuff makes it easy to use and it stays with you over several hours in the saddle, unlike some brands which are too thin. The euro style cooling components are there but not too strong which I like. And finally you get lots for the price - good stuff!
I've used other brands of chamois creme in the past and the PaceLine Eurostyle easily delivers the best value from the standpoints of comfort, ease of application and quantity for the price over the other brands. I also like the Eurostyle much better than PaceLine's non-Eurostyle.
This was one of the first chamois creams I ever used, so I really only know how well it worked without comparisons.
It did exactly as advertised made my bum and other parts feel comfy on longer rides with minimal chaffing.
The first use is a little surprising with the mentholy tingle, just take care to apply liberally and hop on your bike right away.
In most cases one application was sufficient for a 3 hour ride, however I brought some little packs on rainy days as it would eventually get diluted away in a soaked chamois.
Perfect cream for my undercarriage. LIght scent and not too perfumy. Firm viscosity but neither chunky nor loose. Great durability for long distance rides (in high heatrainsnow). Washes easily out of chamois with no residue.
I also use a light smear on my feet at potential blister spots in tight road shoes.
I've been using this product for years. Primarily on long days in the saddle like Levi's Gran Fondo. Get yourself the best pair of bib shorts you can afford, and some Paceline Eurostyle Chamois Butt'r and your backside will be happy all day long. It's has a nice cooling effect when you first apply it, but once you're out riding you don't even notice it, which is exactly what you want. It goes on easy and doesn't harm your clothing. Apply as little or as much as you want for extra comfort on those long days.
