If you are a "traditionalist" you may prefer a European-style chamois cream, with a cooling, soothing effect. Eurostyle from Chamois Butt'r to the rescue! It's a non-greasy lubricant developed by cyclists to enhance riding comfort. Features menthol and witch hazel with a distinctive cooling effect.
Cyclocross can cause chafing and irritation since you are constantly in and out of the saddle, and shifting saddle position often, searching for more power. Apply liberally to your rear or to the chamois pad in your shorts to soothe and soften.
These single-use, 5ml/.17oz individual packets are perfect for re-applying in the middle of long rides (just drop one in your back pocket) and also for traveling to races, as an alternative to taking the whole tube or jar. It's paraben and gluten free, made in the USA, and contains no artificial fragrance or colors.
