Of all the riders in the ProTour peloton, it makes perfect sense that Dave Zabriskie would be the one to formulate and market a new chamois cream. Why Dave Z? We think it's for 2 reasons: (1) For years he's been recognized as the world's most aero TT rider. And, as we all know, it ain't a real TT unless you've got nuking legs, scorching lungs, and a crotch that feels like it's been on the business end of a ball peen hammer. The nose of your saddle in a TT does you no favors, so TT experts like Dave Z do anything possible to ease the pounding on deez nuts. (2) Over the last few seasons, Dave has had an unusual amount of spare time on his hands. In the '05 Tour de France he won the yellow jersey in the Stage 1 TT, only to lose it shortly thereafter thanks to a freak crash at the very end of the TTT -- the injuries from which forced him to drop out of the race. The '08 Giro treated him little better, with another crash forcing an early exit. In his downtime he could've cultivated his already-well honed skills at slam poetry. But instead he indulged his interest in science and worked with a pharmaceutical lab to develop the product now known as DZ Nuts High Viscosity Chamois Cream. Some quick background for you about chamois creams in general: Did you know that for the last 4 years our #1 selling product by unit here at Competitive Cyclist has been Assos Chamois Cream? It doesn't cost much, but the enjoyment it brings to your riding experience is dramatic. If you've never used any, you need to understand that chamois cream ain't snake oil. Once you start using it, you can't imagine not. Even for a 30-minute bike commute to work, we find ourselves reaching for the white jar since it makes the simple act of pedaling so much less abrasive and pinch-prone to our skin. The deep, dark truth about Assos' cream is this, though: Its popularity isn't due to the fact that it's remarkably better than the other chamois cream options in the marketplace.
Anti-bacterial: pre/probiotics complex reduces the chance of infection and encourages beneficial skin flora growth
Anti-inflammatory: decreases itching, prickling and discomfort
Wound-healing: strengthens natural biological skin defenses and promotes healing in previously damaged skin
Anti-chaffing: moisture absorbing polymers isolate excess moisture, protecting delicate skin against the chamois
