Muc-Off are most famous for their magical pink bike cleaning liquid – it’s amazing stuff that can do wonders to your grubby pal after a good ride. However, recently they’ve moved into creams and lotions for the rider, as well as the bike, in their Athlete Performance Range.
Beautifully presented, each lotion in the five product line up comes in an individual box, which opens to reveal a matte black tube that screams luxury – we certainly felt special lining these little tubes up in the bathroom cabinet.
It’s not just about pretty boxes, though – this range has been designed with science at its heart, alongside feedback from athletes. The products are billed to aid performance and speed up recovery – but do they work?
We put them to the test…
The chamois cream market is pretty flooded – but Muc-Off are hoping to bring something unique to the table. As well as putting an end to 99% of germs, this creme is enriched with natural Aloe Vera, Witch Hazel, Shea Butter and Sunflower Oil, and contains Provitamins. ‘Cos I always thought my lady bits needed extra vitamins… It’s also free from Parabens, good for those with sensitive skin.
In practice? This chamois cream does its job in reducing friction on a ride. I’m lucky enough to have found the dream saddle, and in all honesty I rarely use chamois cream unless it’s a century ride, but I did feel my shorts did their job better with the addition of this product.
Muc-Off have gone for the tingle effect, or what they call a ‘cooling effect’ – personally I think this just adds to the freshness of a ride, but if you know it doesn’t work for you you’re best off avoiding!
