Chamois Cream is a moisturising cream that helps to reduce friction between your perineum region and your saddle. Many riders will find that even with padded shorts, friction can cause discomfort and "saddle sores" when riding for prolonged periods. Chamois Cream is a good means of preventing these discomforts.
Preventing saddle sores is the key role of chamois cream; prevention is far better than cure in this case. Some creams will also contain anti-bacterial agents, to stop saddle sores from becoming infected with repeated riding.
We have a range of different chamois creams at Wiggle. Different riders may find that some creams work more effectively than others; as some are thicker and more resistant to sweat, whilst others are thinner and less greasy. Try looking at our reviews to see which rider’s experience sound most like yours, and therefore which cream will best solve your problem.
