The Assos Cento has become synonymous with long-distance comfort and the Cento EVO represents the latest iteration of this staple by taking the fully loaded bib short a step further with an updated chamois and refinements throughout.

Assos began with the same Type.439 textile used in the original Cento for the main panels due to its incredible comfort against the skin. With two different rates of four-way stretch, it also delivers a nice, compressive hold for a smooth, supportive wrap along the thighs. This proprietary fabric provides exceptional breathability, and it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick-drying outer surface. As with the original Cento, the fit is a touch more generous around the lower abdominals than their race fit options. New for this short is the addition of the raw-cut zeroWaist material to ensure a smooth and comfortable hold on a variety of body types. The back panel is constructed using their acclaimed Y7 Frame Carrier design and Stabilizator mesh, resulting in a flat, stable structure that disappears between the shoulder blades for a smooth, supportive hold. The Cento EVO shorts feature the new black CENTO EVO chamois, featuring 10mm of plush memory foam and kukuPenthouse microfiber for dependable comfort and support on every ride.



Features & Specs:

  • Type.439 Diadema fabric has two different rates of 4-way stretch.
  • CENTO S7 EVO chamois with CENTO elastic interface featuring 10mm of memory foam for the perfect blend of comfort and performance.
  • Patented, three-layer perforated chamois construction that increases breathability and eliminates excess weight.
  • kukuPenthouse: A soft, brushed microfiber layer added to the front part of the chamois that supports the male anatomy, eliminates pressure, and increases ventilation.
  • Y7 Frame Carrier Bib Tech features wide, flexible bib straps that converge at the upper back in a Y-shape design, resulting in a flat, stable structure that disappears between the shoulder blades.
  • Ultralight Leg Grippers constructed from a light silicon treatment woven into the leg bands, which reduces fabric bulk and secures the shorts in place without any excessive pressure.
  • zeroWaist: A raw-cut, tape-reinforced edge for the smoothest transition possible between the body and fabric panel. More comfort with less pressure.
  • Reflective Bands on the backs of the thighs for added visibility.
  • regularFit: Optimized for total comfort in the riding position, with a more relaxed cut than the Assos second-skin racingFit.
  • All day comfort

NEARLY top of the line bibs, excellent but not their best

Calibrating expectations, just about any Assos bib will probably be a better fit/feel/performer than just about any other product you'll find here, and Assos is priced accordingly. Within the Assos line, there are different designed purposes--race, shorter/lighter training rides, longer efforts, etc. These are intended for long duration (4+ hours). I've got a pair of their top race bibs and a lower end pair of their training bibs, very impressed with each.

So based on that, my expectation for these is that they'd be great comfort and compression/performance for 5+ hour century rides. After two rides in hot and minor rain conditions, they held up OK but I noticed minor chaffing, something I've never previously encountered with any Assos bibs. These do generally fit/feel great, but my sense is that the floating chamois design used here doesn't work as well as the similar design on the race bibs or as on the more "fixed" chamois design on trainer bibs. So I'll gladly use these for rides of 4 hours or less, but will not be using these as my primary choice for all day efforts.

High price for decent quality

The straps are great..no twisting or turning.. The outer materials are good and the legs don't slide or creep... They went to a lot of trouble around the goin area with a smooth ultra soft material. The pad is thinner with good support...

They are expensive and if I hadn't gotten a good deal on them I would probably have passed on them...I've bought two sets of the Assos in recent years...They are my go to... The jury is still out...the first pair had a covering on the pad that deteriorated with only a few washings...They are still wearable and comfortable... This pair doesn't have that...but I've only washed them once...so it's hard to say until they've been battle tested..

My dad had a saying....If you're lucky .. you get what you pay for... I figured they were worth the try...

Great bibs - worth the money for long rides

Assos is expensive, but in certain areas you can't cut corners and one of those areas is the back side. Just review Assos' description - the shorts do everything they say - very comfortable, but not so "plush" that you can't put in a big effort. I also have a pair of Equip RS S9's for racing or shorter training rides. The chamois is much different between the two. The Equip RS chamois is much more flexible. This one is thicker, but in my experience it still sticks to your backside just as much, but provides more protection and comfort for really long rides. Compression in the legs is still good.

My only complaint with all Assos bibs - sizing is based on waist, but for me with a bit of a longer torso that means the straps ended up a little tight, with the potential to pull the chamois up a little too much. After 3-4 hours of riding I do have to pull to adjust the chamois a bit (I pull it with the tip of my saddle :), but it really isn't much of an issue. I can see how it could be for those who are more disproportionate than I am with regard to waist-torso ratio.

Bibs are still the way to go, though, if you're doing intense efforts or longer distances. I still use shorts on my short rides.

Best Bibs on the market

The old saying YOU GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR fits these bibs to a tee. I have been cycling for 12 years and have tried all the top brands out there. These are pricey but will never buy another brand. From the first ride i took to then wearing my pearl pro and Garneau there is no comparison. I now have 2 pairs of the cento evo and 2 pairs of the rsr9. Both are great but i like the cento best. They run a little small like a lro bib normally does.

SIze up if you are on the edge

I fall on the edge of medium or large. I thought medium would be fine due to my waist size. That is a mistake given my height and upper body length. The pressure on the shoulders is more than other bibs and up-sizing is advisable.

Best Quality Bibs Ever

Love these bibs and have been wearing them for years. The quality of the fabric is just so high and they always feel great on those long rides. The kookoo nest is so comfortable you'll forget that you have bibs on sometimes. They are expensive but you should get a few years of riding out of them.

The BMW of bib shorts

Don't settle for less! Assos is top quality and you must pay for it, but you'll be rewarded with quality materials, fit, and stitching....but most of all great design. The insert for the Cento is the best and most plush I own across many brands. It's luxurious feeling for long rides yet performance-firm and doesn't shift around in sweat. I really could wear these for 100 miles and not be sore. Don't hesitate, if you want the most performance oriented comfort bibs, this is it.

Expensive, but worth it (if you can get them on sale)

Very comfortable shorts, especially for long rides (over 50 miles). Pretty unique chamois, with the memory foam and a special compartment for the family jewels. They are breathtakingly expensive (regular price > $300), but worth grabbing a pair when they go on sale. Star rating won't work for me (technical glitch) so: Overall - 5 stars; Value rating 4 stars (if you get them on sale (around $220)

The most comfortable shorts I've every owned

These are very well made shorts that are super comfortable over a long day on the bike. I've done a few double centuries in these now and I'd have a hard time going back to anything else now that I know how comfortable bib shorts can be.

The kukuPenthouse is about the most ridiculous marketing term I've every heard, but, you know, it actually works. With my other shorts, I get pressure points and chafing around my privates on longer rides. With these shorts, I don't even notice the shorts.

Everything about them is well made and comfortable. Since they're my most expensive shorts, I generally save them for longer rides, but I think I've worn and washed them at least a few dozen times and they seem as good as new.

Now if Assos could figure out a way to make my legs feel the same after 150 miles as they feel when I start the ride, I'd be in seventh heaven.

The BEST!

I thought the S9�s were great, and they are, but these are amazing! They are very expensive, yes, but really you get what you pay for! The fit is exceptional, the material superb, but the chamois is so good, you could sit on a board and be comfortable! I�ve tried the others, and they�re not even close. I�ve heard that World Tour guys rip out the chamois in sponsored shorts and sew in Assos, that says it all.

Best bibs ever

I have worn many brands over the years, once I found these Assos bibs (Cento Evo) I will never purchase another brand or style. I cycle 9k a year and by far it is worth paying the extra for these Assos bibs. On sale of course.

Solid bib short, short being the operative word

I'm 6'4", 185lbs and the large fits well. By Assos's sizing, they consider me a Medium. If you're over 6' and near my weight, don't go by that as my first pair's suspenders were way too short, and the crotch hugged my junk like a clingy significant other. Great chamois as is bandied about all over the internet. For long distances it is comfy and allows for shifting and repositioning while trying to find that new position to give sore areas a break. The chamois is thicker than any other I have used, so off the bike it does feel more diaper like to me, but I could care less about that. Couple 75+ mile rides in these this summer and they're great, and as advertised for long ride comfort. I do wish that companies would either provide a "long" option, or just inherently build larger sizes longer in the legs. These are pretty short, and while not a deal breaker for me, I do greatly prefer slightly more leg coverage for compression, etc. Speaking of compression, these shorts do well in the areas they cover, and have a good amount in the legs while keeping the stomach bands loose. (bunch of online reviews seem to copy each other about how "loose" the tummy line is) This loose fit is intended (via their description on their website) purposely to help alleviate unnecessary tension leading often to GI issues on long rides. I'm also very slim, and have no issues with my jersey hanging up on it, but I also don't wear jerseys that hang out well above my navel. I for one love how loose fitting the front waist line is as I've not had any pressure issues on long rides that I have gotten from some more compressive waisted bibs. Great set of shorts that I only wish had a "long" option for us folks over say 5'7" or so.

Longtime Assos fan here.

I believe the latest iteration of the Cento Evo has a few improvements from the previous (pink chamois) version.

To me they seem a little tighter, more compressive and I think they went back to the slightly longer, more traditional leg length.

My favorite thing about the Cento bibs is the KuKu Penthouse which, along with the more breathable fabric on the outside of this region has been a revelation. I think on this most recent version the KKP is slightly lager and even more comfortable.

Breathtakingly expensive, I know but if you can work it (wait for them to go on sale!) highly recommend.

Great bibs and an improvement over the prior model

I have been wearing Cento bibs exclusively for several years now. The cento bibs have the most padding, 10 mm rather than 8, of any Assos model which I prefer. Also the straps on the Cento model are particularly wide and comfortable. The evo are a noticeable improvement over the s7. The front kudu pocket is a lycra type material rather than fabric, the padding is black and the straps even better than the s7, which themselves were excellent wide and comfortable. Note that the sizing is based on height and not weight or waist size. The bibs fit better if not bought larger than recommended, the padding will seat, position better. I'm 5'7 and medium is the recommend size for me and fits me better than large (which I also own). Although the s7 are still being sold and are a bit cheaper, I feel the evo are worth the additional cost. When Assos makes improvements, the improvements address technical issues and are not simply cosmetic marketing.
