The people at Udderly Smooth have been making excellent moisturizer for cow udders for years. Thanks to their Udderly Smooth Chamois Cream, cyclists can now give the same amount of care to their own undercarriages.
The greaseless formula has a very clean, light scent. It comes out of the 8oz tub fairly thick, but becomes fairly thin with application. Because Udderly Smooth doesn’t have that menthol tingle that many chamois creams have, it has gotten excellent reception from female riders.
The cream seems to be just about perfect for shorter rides, but after rides of two or more hours, or in partic31ularly rainy or sweaty conditions, you may find yourself needing to reapply. Udderly Smooth also seemed to be just the right viscosity for runners looking to prevent chafing. The more expensive, extremely thick creams can sometimes feel like too much for runners who appreciate a minimalist feel.
Udderly Smooth’s 8oz tub will last most riders for months, making it well worth the $7.50 investment (about half the cost of some of the more popular brands). If you’ve never tried using chamois cream, you’re missing out on a world of comfort. Fortunately, your local bike shop will be more than happy to enlighten you. They probably will not, however, apply it for you.
