Chapeau! Chamois Cream review
We all know chafing can be a problem for cyclists. Chapeau!’s new cream is impressively friction free but only for as long as it lasts.
Application is easy from the 200ml tube and the thinner consistency than most lubes means it soaks into the skin quickly too. This also means no claggy, clinging sensation between cloth and skin.
There’s a Menthol version for a fresher, cooling ‘minty breeze’ effect too.
While we had no complaints from our test team on shorter workouts, protection begins to fade and heat to rise as you push past the two-hour mark.
Sweat or rain-related wetness dilutes it noticeably too, which isn’t ideal for our sport or showery climates.
