Cento stands for comfort on long distances and is the latest creation in this category, whereby these shorts go one step further in terms of comfort and equipment. Assos introduces the T Cento EVO: Assos has further developed the most popular comfort fit and equipped it with an improved insert and other innovative components.
It all started with the Type.439 fabric that assos has used in the past, which is ideal for the main applications as it feels incredibly comfortable on the skin. It also features a 4-way stretch with two different degrees of stretch for a comfortable, slightly compressive fit that softly clings to the thighs and provides additional support. This specially developed material is also particularly breathable and transfers moisture directly to the fast-drying outer surface. Similar to the original Cento, the cut around the lower abdomen is slightly freer than on the racingFit models. In addition, assos pursues the new zeroWaist approach with its open-edged design for a smooth and comfortable hold on a wide variety of body shapes.
The back panel is based on the highly acclaimed Y7 Frame Carrier design with a Stabilizator mesh that provides soft, supportive support thanks to a flat, stable structure that blends seamlessly between the shoulder blades. As an insert, assos has used the new black CENTO EVO, which offers reliable comfort and support for every ride with 10 mm high, soft memory foam and kukuPenthouse.
Type.439 Diadema: This fabric design was developed together with the fabric suppliers to meet the requirements for performance, quality and durability. The weave structure is unique within the industry and features 4-way stretch with two different degrees of stretch, which requires great expertise to maximize fabric stretch when cutting the shorts.
CENTO S7 EVO: Cento S7 Evo is the elastic CENTO insert but with a more advanced design. The insert, now new in black, features the proven 10 mm high layer of memory foam and is located at the interface between comfort and performance.
3D waffle is a patented, three-layer perforated foam that increases breathability and has no excess weight.
golden Gate: Golden Gate is a patented process technology that breaks the seams on the two side inserts, allowing increased three-dimensional freedom of movement in this sensitive, constantly moving area.
kuku Penthouse: This is the name of the soft, roughened layer of microfibre at the front of the insert, which provides support for the male anatomy, relieves pressure and improves air exchange.
Y7 Frame Carrier bibTech: Wide, flexible straps are brought together in a Y-shaped design in the upper back area, creating a flat, stable structure that fits seamlessly between the shoulder blades.
Stabilizer V3: Stabilizes the back thanks to the solid fabric with limited vertical stretch.
Ultralight Leg Grippers: A light silicone has been woven into the leg cuff so that the material does not push up, even without exerting excessive pressure, and the shorts stay in place.
zeroWaist: An open-edged edge with sealed seams, providing the smoothest transition between body and material panel. This means more comfort and less pressure.
Reflective tapes: Attached to the back of the thighs for better visibility.
regular Fit: Optimised for all-round comfort in the riding position. The cut is slightly freer than the skin-tight racing fit.
