When you’re looking for an anti-chafing product, the number one feature you’ll be looking for obviously is that it works, and that you can trust it to work when it matters. James Downing, an Australian XC Mountain Bike athlete who has been on the MTB marathon circuit for many years sums it up as well as we could…
“As an elite cyclist, the requirements for me to be good on race day are the hours and kilometres that I do week in week out with my training. It is not uncommon for me to do 20,000km or more in a calendar year in all sorts of weather and as you could expect this puts a fair bit of stress on the body. I rely on the Premax Anti Friction Cream daily in order to ensure that the interaction between my body and the bike saddle is as comfortable as possible. Cycling is one of the hardest sports that you can do and knowing that you can rely on a product to protect your skin and allow you to perform as expected is a huge factor in the overall scheme of things.” James Downing, Elite Mountain Bike Athlete
Having 100% trust in the performance and effectiveness of Premax Anti Friction Cream will help your confidence and subsequently your athletic performance. Chafing, and soreness from chafing is one thing you won’t have to worry about when you’re using Premax.
The consistency of Premax Anti Friction Cream is unique. Best described as ‘in the middle’ it’s not watery and thin, or a thick paste. It’s a moderate, smooth and silky cream with a refreshing scent that washes out of clothes and cycling knicks easily.
Premax Anti Friction Cream also contains tea tree oil to help protect the skin from nasty bacteria.
Many athletes will happily let you know that Premax Anti Friction Cream is their preference, however when the conversation turns to how and where to apply it, most get a little shy. We’re not so shy, so read on if you dare!
The most important thing is to know where the areas of pressure and fiction occur.
For cyclists, this is the area around and between your genitals and anus, and the inner part of your upper thigh. Some people apply it to their knicks, some to the skin, some both. It doesn’t really matter as long as you get it in the right spot.
For runners, it’s usually between the upper thighs, around chest straps, bras and tight upper body garments.
Apply the cream to where it’s going to rub, before it hurts. Once your skin starts to break down with chafing, it’s too late.
So how much should be applied? Again, there’s no right answer as what you do, your skin type, the humidity on the day, your clothing, your seat, how long you exercise/ride, and how much you sweat all play a part.
Some people get away with as little as 5mL (1 x teaspoon), others need 30mL (tablespoon) or more per ride/session. After a few sessions with Premax Anti Friction Cream you’ll work out what’s right for you, but to start it’s better to use a little more than a little less for obvious reasons. And for those who exercise all day (and night), you should reapply every 3-5 hours.
“From racing over cobbles, in the pouring rain or on the absolute rivet in a time trial, Premax Anti Friction Cream has saved my skin more times than I can count.
