I'd be willing to buy all new pads/gloves if I could find a brand that was a little more 'funk-resistant' (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif) I mean seriously, no one's freaking elbows smell like this, EVER, it's insanity. It's the materials not the sweat.

Anyone had a pair of gloves or pads that seemed to generate a overly harsh funk really quickly, and the next brand you got turned out to be no where near as bad? I'm looking for that brand. Washing them and making them smell clean isn't my issue, I do it constantly, but that's my point. I'm getting tired of washing pads every week from two 1hr locals just so I don't smell like roadkill (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wacko.gif) Surely someone has made a material that's a little more resistant to this kinda thing...or am I mistaken?

Spray everything down with Zorbex after riding. It works wonders.

Wash them the machine w/ 4 - 5 oz of white vinegar. Works great.

Put a little gold bond foot powder on them before each ride, it obsorbs sweat and odor and will keep your hands dry inside your gloves. Works wonders.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/good2.gif) Picked some of this stuff up last night and it worked really good. The smell on my elbow pads, shin guards and shoes went away almost immediately, gloves, not so much but they're ready for an actual wash.

I think I might try the dry sock thing in the cinch bag too for a little added help. Good stuff guys! Thanks!

I smell so finding something to combat odor is a must! Lol

I use it after everytime I ride in between washes.

A friend in the car detail business turned me on to this stuff. She uses it in stinky cars. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Also try not to put your gloves and elbow pads in your helmet especially when packing everything up. You will be amazed how more fresh your gear will stay.
