ZJay’s in Boulder Colorado sent a sample of their Saddle Sore Soother in exchange for consideration. This unscented soothing gel is applied to your personal problem spots after your ride and shower.
This is not a chamois cream for use pre-ride, but is applied post-ride to help provide relief for your pain in the posterior. The ingredients are fairly simple and non-toxic, consisting of a solution of hydrogen peroxide and salt buffered with citric acid and sodium bicarb suspended in a carbomer polymer gel. It feels like a very thin hair gel, with easy application and a non-greasy feel.
Problem is, I can’t evaluate this right now because my taint is currently sore-free.
In the interest of science, what can I do to encourage saddle sores?
I believe any advice on sore creation can be considered a howto on how to avoid saddle sores in the first place, right?
ZJay’s is a creation of Chris Leiferman and Zana Buttermore-Baca, a couple of triathletes and cyclists in Boulder, CO. They know saddle time and they know butt sores. Learn more and try it for yourself at their website.
