CREAM OF THE CROP

Cycling Plus (Malaysia) - - GEAR GUIDE -

Look­ing af­ter your rear isn’t just about buy­ing the most tech­no­log­i­callyad­vanced shorts

It’s im­por­tant to al­ways wash your bib shorts af­ter ev­ery ride, and avoid putting dirty shorts back on, to re­duce the chance of bac­te­rial in­fec­tions. Us­ing a chamois cream will trans­form your time in the sad­dle. It’s eas­ily ap­plied di­rectly to the skin or on the in­ner pad to pro­vide a lu­bri­cant that helps to avoid chaf­ing or sores caused by sweat­ing. Be aware that some have a slight warm­ing ef­fect, so don’t be alarmed. A tub of chamois cream is pos­si­bly the best £10 you can spend on your cy­cling.
