Chamois Cream: 5 of Our Favorite Options

We took a look at the best chamois creams. Because sometimes the love of a good saddle isn’t enough.

Chamois cream is an antibacterial substance designed to eliminate friction between your skin and chamois during cycling. Check out a few top options to make your training ride more comfortable. Goodbye saddle sores—or worse!

Muc-Off Luxury CC

$15; 100ml; Men’s and Women’s Available

Part of its athlete performance line, Muc-Off has created a chamois cream with an exceptional viscosity. This is a well-balanced and durable cream that provides comfort and eliminates chafing even during long rides. There is a noticeable cooling effect with this product, so be prepared.

Sportique Century Riding Cream

$10; 100ml; Men’s and Women’s Available

Consider this a Swiss Army do-it-all product. Sportique is a chamois cream that also protects against friction in shoes, under arms against a singlet, and is safe for use with a wetsuit. It is thick, so you definitely know it’s there, but it does a great job, especially on longer rides.

Cycle By Body Glide

$10; 1.5 ounces; Unisex

With its unique stick application, this balm is super easy to apply and keeps hands dry. Cycle is completely non- greasy, and the stick is more than just novelty, it’s actually incredibly useful when flying out the door. However, like applying deodorant before your first date, make sure you do so liberally.

Rapha Chamois

$20; 150ml; Unisex

Rapha is definitely the most viscous product tested, but don’t let that fool you, it works well in all conditions. The cream is soft on the skin—it’s made with olive oil and shea butter—and has a cooling effect due to the presence of menthol. Added bonus: This is a great- smelling product.

Castelli Chamois Dry Lube

$20; 100ml; Unisex

Castelli’s Dry Lube is simply that—dry! Palpably non-greasy, this is a great choice for rainy rides or for sweaty athletes who find traditional chamois creams uncomfortable. It tends to require several pumps for sufficient protection—the dry lube is not as thick as other creams—so be prepared to replace it more frequently.
