Just as changes in weather conditions, terrain and riding intensity require different clothing, different situations may also require extra skin protection. The Castelli Linea Pelle combo pack provides you a great range of options for your skin: Chamois Dry Lube, Foul Weather Cream, and Warming Embro Cream.
The best chamois-skin products lubricate the skin to reduce friction, protect against saddle sores, and offer antimicrobial protection. While there are many excellent products on the market, the number one problem is a greasy feel, often leaving your the skin on your undercarriage and hands all too slippery. Castelli has addressed that issue with Chamois Dry Lube. As the product name indicates, the lube goes on wet, via the pump applicator, then quickly dries with a formula that covers thinly and protects as well as any other product. Natural tea tree oil is an active ingredient with natural antimicrobial properties. You can apply the lube directly to the skin, or to the chamois pad.
Castelli Foul Weather Cream is perfect for the hardy all-season cyclists who insist on training outdoors no matter what the weather, and the committed cyclocross adherent who push the limits of cycling and harsh conditions just to race their bikes. Castelli has worked with Linea Pelle to develop their skin care line, and the practical, effective applicator keeps things clean and manageable in your gear bag. The non-petroleum base contains 57% plant based products, and will not harm the synthetic fibers of your favorite cycling gear. For best results, apply to skin shortly before heading out. Allow the non-greasy formula to cover and adhere to the skin. You will feel the warming via capillary action in the skin. Despite the protection, the cream will allow your skin to breathe to allow temperature regulation. Light soap and water after your event or ride will wash the product away. We recommend you carefully wash your hands after application to reduce the risk of eye irritation.
If you have ever raced cyclocross there is an excellent chance you have tried a warming embrocation product. Getting and keeping your skin and muscles warm before exposing yourself to the elements makes perfect sense. European crossers and pro road riders have been using such products for years and Castelli, with their ties to pro cycling, and push to better support all-season cycling and cyclocross, have introduced a skin care series that includes a Warming Embro Cream that works as well as any we have tried, but also has a cleaner, less oily finish. The cream contains 80% plant based products, and will not harm the synthetic fibers of your favorite cycling gear. For best results, apply to skin shortly before heading out. Allow the non-greasy formula to cover and adhere to the skin. You will feel the warming via capillary action in the skin. Many pros use warming products instead of arm or leg warmers in more mild conditions, but for cross, the time it takes to get from the warm up zone to the the call-up and actual start can be crucial. You don't want to get warm, then cool down waiting to start. Warming Embro Cream is your "bridge" and keeps you prepped and comfortable before you blow up your heart rate on the first lap. Light soap and water after your event or ride will wash the product away.Return to Top
