Leg Salsa

Our best seller!

A protective, extra-hot warming layer for cycling in rain and cold-weather.

Leg Salsa is our original product. It was originally designed to help with swelling and pain from a broken knee cap, and after rave reviews at the 2001 24-Hours of Moab, we decided to make Leg Salsa available to the public.

This all-natural product works as a counter irritant to help your legs perform well when temperatures drop.

$11.00 per 2 ounce jar

Thanks for the recent shipment. It was just in time, as the cooler, wet weather has arrived with ‘cross season.

I actually used quite a bit of leg salsa for the last road race of my season, the Green Mountain stage race.

We started a long mountain stage with a descent from a ski area in the rain, so I even put some on my lower back. It was great towards the end of the race.

Thanks also for the massage cream. I like it better than the massage bars.


I tried the Leg Salsa and I love it!

I have lower back problems due to a recovering from a back injury (on the mends) and it really helps with loosening and keeping warm (during those cold rides) my lower back muscles.

I’ve been using Qoleum for the past few years and I didn’t think I find something else comparable, but I have in your Leg Salsa. In 2003, I ventured in trying Sixtufit and wasn’t thrilled with it. Thanks for a great product, of which I’m glad to plug!

I purchased the Leg Salsa several weeks ago and my experience has been unbelievable. I am an ice marathon speed skater (4 time US National Champion, 2 Time North American Champion) and the Leg Salsa is ideal for cold winter conditions especially when skating distances up to 200k in frigid temperatures.

The Leg Salsa’s deep penetrating heat keeps my muscles warm not only during the race but even into the recovery hours!

Thanks again for creating such an awesome product! I can’t wait to try the Pro Glaze during the cycling season.

Thank you for your Leg Salsa!!!

I don’t leave home without it! I’ve been using it for years and I wanted to tell you that after using many brands of leg heat, this is the only one that I found that keeps me warm on the chilly and cold rainy days, in fact I feel like I have an advantage when I have on a layer of Leg Salsa.

I look forward to using more of your product this winter!

Leg Salsa has a way of weeding out the weak.

I ordered these products a few weeks ago and I have to say I really, really like them.

I’ve only recently discovered embrocation lotions and my first product was some mild temperature stuff from Qoleum. I like your stuff better.

I race for San Jose Bike Club, www.teamsanjose.org. Guys on the team think I’m a little crazy putting this stuff on during the cold and wet days, but they stop laughing after seeing how well it works.

I used the Leg Salsa for the first time today on our club’s final winter series road race (50 miles, cold, wet) and it didn’t disappoint. It was still keeping me toasty well after the 2.5 hours of racing. But buyer beware, don’t rub your face…this stuff will make your eyes tear up if you get it too close!

I use Leg Salsa on every ride, even in the summer months. I know you’re saying “why does he use the hot stuff in the summer..??”.

Well, I ride 3 – 4 times a week and each ride is between 20 – 30 miles after work. At 63, I want to keep the legs in good working order and Leg Salsa does that for me. I don’t use as much, but it works..!! The Pros ride a stationary trainer before they race, so I use Leg Salsa which loosens the muscles within the first 5 miles especially the knees.

I even used it in August 2006 when I broke my hip in a cycling accident. Leg Salsa kept the hip nice and loose during the healing process and I was back on the indoor trainer by early December.

I was just reading Belgium Knee Warmers Blog and their article and feedback on embrocations — pretty interesting..!! I’ve used some of the ones mentioned in the past and was not terribly impressed..!!I’m probably am not your biggest customer, but I’m certainly your biggest fan..!! Thanks again for producing a wonderful product..!!

I bought some of your products while I lived in Santa Ynez and am sadly out. I most often use it on my back and generates a significant amount of heat.
Do any stores near Asheville, NC carry it?
Thanks so much for your time. You have a great product.


I have been using Leg Salsa for two years, Chris Black hooked me up. I have been doing massage for 26 years. I have tried all the Hot stuff. Still yours is the best for me. I need to get more, thanks!

I’m LOVING this stuff. Thanks for the great service and the leg embro and bottle as well! I used a bit of the embro on my knees last weekend and it too was a home run, it’s going to be perfect for CX season here. I just posted up a +1 on your product on the forum I learned about your goods from.


I just wanted to thank you guys for such a great product. I ride for Team Wrong Way and this was my first winter of cycling. I was really frustrated with my toes and feet getting extremely cold no matter how many socks I wore or whatever I put over my feet. One of my teammates gave me a jar of leg salsa and I’m sold. I rubbed some of it on my toes before my ride and after 2 hours in about 40 F weather, no problems. I’m sold.

Hi! I just wanted to say that I am a big fan of Leg Salsa. I recently used it while riding the Adirondack 540 this September. This year’s ADK540 was a 540-mile, 30,000-feet-gain romp through rain, wind and temps into the 20’s while on 50 mph descents.
To be sure, I wore leg warmers over the Leg Salsa, but I was really impressed that my legs remained toasty for up to 12 hours after application. This has become an essential part of my kit on colder, longer rides and I am looking forward to using it through my winter training season in inclement Cleveland, OH.

Thanks for the great product! I will remain a loyal customer.

I am a big fan of your product and tell all my fellow cyclists and clients about it. Believe it or not it’s been the coldest winter here in Tarpon Springs, Fl, and I really need it as I am completely out as of today.



Many years ago, before your company got big, you gave me a jar of the original ÖĂ. I think you gave it to me at the Tour De Ney. I have used it diligently to it’s last bit and have found its healing properties to be amazing. I’ve used it on my knees, ankles, and now on my injured tailbone. I also have a jar of the ÖĂ Leg Salsa, which is similar in recipe, but A LOT hotter, and when I put it on my tailbone . . . well, you know.

Any chance you have any of the original stuff around? I looked on your website and I don’t see anything like it. I think it is healing my tailbone and really need more.



Well at a race here in Denmark, I heard a guy talking about your “leg salsa”, I talked a bit with him, and he said he had tried all your products, and had only good things to say about it.
He said the Leg Salsa is very easy to wash off after racing. Which sounds good to me, I think it’s a bit difficult with the brand I use now.
Also most of his friends uses “smooth ride”.  I also Googled your company name, and found it mentioned on a Danish website called feltet.dk, which is the biggest cycling site in Scandinavia.



I’ve been using the leg salsa for years now and I love it. I’d like to talk to you more about the other products and how we can work together in improving your line through rider feedback. Would you be up for a chat sometime soon? Hope to hear from you soon.
