As long as we ride hot vinyl and leather seats dressed up in our whale skin suits we will have issues that need to be dealt with. This is one of those uncomfortable topics to talk about, but once you find a system that works its easier to spend more time on the bike rather than cursing your seat, underwear, or Mother Nature. I personally have tried many products in order to find that perfect balance of comfort for long hours in the saddle.
The product I am referring to is called “Fresh Balls” a great pun intended to draw attention to the fact that it’s designed for one purpose. Fresh Body has a full line of male and female hygiene products that are all natural. Fresh Balls is scientifically designed to fight chafing, irritation, and wetness.
For many years the go to product was a powder based mixture of either cornstarch or talcum. These products all have the same problem, mess. Fresh Balls has a different approach. The lotion like creme goes on smooth and dries fast leaving no overbearing odor or mess.
I found that nobody carried Fresh Balls locally, and after checking Wal-Mart and Walgreens I placed an order online. Within 4 days I had my tube and was ready to give it a trial run. Immediately it felt more refreshing than powders, except it doesn't give that refreshing menthol sting like a medicated powder. I am happy to report that after many hours mowing and riding that I still felt fresh and was not uncomfortable.
The only drawback I've found so far is the price and availability. My 5oz tube arrived at my door for about $14.00 I did find several listings on Amazon a little cheaper. Clicking here will take you to the Fresh Balls Amazon link. You can thank me later.
