In the world of marathon running, triathlons and other endurance sports, it often comes as a surprise to the participating athlete when he or she first experiences one of the most painful sports injuries known to man – nipple abrasion. Ouch! This is why that for years endurance athletes have tried everything from bandaids to duct tape in order to help prevent such a gruesome phenomenon from occurring.
Of the tape and bandaid camp, the most common product recruited to help prevent nipple chafing is the spot bandage – a small circular or square bandage designed for small and minor cuts, scrapes and burns. The bandage is placed over each nipple and a small prayer is said in hopes that the adhesive will hold up for at least part of the competition or workout. A close second to this technique is the use of two small bandaid strips placed over each nipple in an X pattern.
While the use of bandages is a great way to help heal an existing damaged nipple, the majority of endurance athletes have discovered that the adhesive properties of these products do not hold up to sweat and high-intensity motion, and therefore are not reliable for use as injury prevention. This stands to a very good reason – bandages are designed to do something totally different; heal wounds. So, many serious athletes have long searched for something better with regards to chafing prevention. In recent years, several products have emerged which have proven to raise the bar in the category of Skin Protection. NipEaze is one such product.
In a recent study, NipEaze was placed head-to-head with one of the leading brand Spot Bandages. As a result, NipEaze is rated as possessing ‘10 times more staying-power’ than its medicinal cousin. Why is that? The answer is simple – NipEaze is designed for athletes, and more specifically, designed to protect nipples. Would you enter your family’s mini-van in a Grand-Prix race? Would you wear your stylish Florsheim wing-tips to a triathlon competition? Why not? The answer is simple: high-performance activities require high-performance equipment. NipEaze is high-performance equipment.
Check out how NipEaze compared to a leading brand Spot Bandages in our recent study:
In summary, NipEaze has 65% more adhesive coverage than a regular Spot Bandage. Furthermore, NipEaze out-performs regular Spot Bandages in each and every test. As with any specialty performance product, the price is significantly higher than its utility-grade cousin, but compared to other specialty nipple products, NipEaze wins as the best value.
Because NipEaze is designed specifically for nipples, there are many noteworthy differences between the two products.
Remember, bandages are designed to help heal small and minor cuts, scrapes, and burns; and duct tape is designed to fix stuff. Alternately, NipEaze is a high-quality Athletics Accessory designed to protect the most sensitive parts of your torso! And it is designed to do it well!
