The scorpion can now be applied from a bottle: Castelli has launched Linea Pelle, a three-cream embrocation range. Two years in development the skin care products won’t harm technical cycling fabrics, says the Italian cycle clothing company.
The Linea Pelle collection is made up of Chamois Dry Lube, Warming Embro Cream and Foul Weather cream. Each 100ml tube has a pump mechanism that is more hygienic than a jar (double dipping of bum cream is a big no-no, of course) and the products can be purchased individually or in a three-tube combo pack with a red drawstring bag.
Chamois Dry Lube reduces friction without weakening the skin through moisturisers, and contains antibiotic tea-tree oil. Warming Embro Cream can help “wake up” muscles prior to riding. Foul Weather cream is designed to protect skin from wet, dirty conditions. It is not petroleum based.
The Linea Pelle range is suitable for both men and women.
