Cycling and chafing. No matter how expensive that chamois sewed into your imported European riding gear is, the risk of chafing remains real.
Experienced road, gravel and mountain bikers know the agony of chafe and saddle sores. All the training in the world, and the best saddle, can’t prevent excruciating pressure sores from happening. But Ass Magic can.
Anti-chafe cream is one of those strange encounters for novice riders. But if you are going on a five-hour training ride or attending a multi-day mountain bike stage race, you must apply some chamois cream.
It works in the most severe riding conditions
A homebrewed product developed in Cape Town, Ass Magic has gained a dedicated following among the South African cycling community - since its 2014 debut.
The product is a lanolin and bees wax chamois cream, with registration approval from the European Cosmetic Notification Portal. Ass Magic’s formulation includes tea tree oil (delivering anti-bacterial properties) and zinc oxide (assisting with skin renewal).
Taking the Magic into Europe
With the world’s most influential cycling trade show scheduled to open on Thursday in Frankfurt, Ass Magic has confirmed its presence at Eurobike and detailed an international expansion plan.
Ass Magic founder, Chris Wolhunter, is excited about the possibilities. "We have largely traded in South Africa with forays into Europe, South America and the USA. We have been getting more requests for our chamois cream from aboard. Mark Cuperus from Fearless BV will act as our agent in Europe."
