The Assos range has long been considered the reference standard for bib shorts, stopping at nothing to create the most comfortable bibs possible. They have an almost biblical following from professional riders and amateur riders alike. As soon as you try a pair of Assos you will see why they have such a legendary status.

After 6 years of _S5, Assos have launched the new industry benchmark: _S7. This is the next generation of legendary Assos total comfort cycling shorts, incorporating patented features and innovations that until now were unknown. These are by far the most advanced, most comfortable cycling shorts Assos have ever created.
 
The _S7 range includes four styles of bib shorts and these ones are the T.Cento_S7 which are classed as the comfort fit model in the range. Ideal for long distance cycling the shorts feature a less restrictive fit on the waist and abdominal areas. Due to T.Cento's construction, they are ideally suited for more robust body types. The main textile that makes up the paneling of the bibs is called Type.439 and this fabric is used for the five low-volume panels of the short, as its incredibly comfortable and supportive. The material provides exceptional breathability, and it rapidly transfers moisture to its quick-drying surface. Like the other fabrics in the rest of the _S7 bib short range, type.439 was finished with an icecolor application, which is similar to coldblack cooling technology in that it effectively reduces surface temperature in dark fabrics.
 
Assos engineered these bib shorts to provide a slightly asymmetrical compressive hold that stretches more around your body, rather than vertically. This tuned stretch works to firmly secure the shorts in place while down in the cycling position, feeling more dialed while sitting in the saddle than while standing upright. This feeling has long been known to Assos' devoted followers as the signature "click on" fit. Also new for the _S7 is the Y7 bib strap design. The straps have been moved outward in the front slightly for better support. By doing this the straps hug the torso, mimicking the body's movement without any gap, regardless of on-the-bike positioning.
 
As the bibs are designed for big mileage you need an extremely comfy seat pad and that is exactly what you get with the T.Cento_S7. The pad is made from a 10mm thick memory foam that has a shock absorbing composition that returns to its natural position, ''filling the gap'' every time pedaling position is changed in the saddle through the shift of weight. The perforated design of the pad works to increase breathability and to shed weight, and combined with the ultra-soft microfibre top sheet, effectively pull moisture from within the layers below, which allows it to dry much quicker than previous pads. Before the S7 pad was designed all shorts inserts were fastened (sewn or glued) but now the new ''golden gate'' technology interrupts the sewing in the area ''between the legs'', creating 3 dimensional freedom of movement right in the most sensitive area. 
 
As impressive as the pad sounds, the true magic of the chamois is located at the front. Assos have removed the section of padding where a male cyclist's genitals would normally contact the chamois. In place of the padding is a soft, brushed microfiber layer, which creates a "nest," or cradle into which the genitals are comfortably supported, free of the chamois' foam padding. As a result pressure is eliminated in this area, and ventilation is increased substantially compared to a traditional chamois. The overall chamois design was then finished off with a "rearTerminal" at the back — where the chamois' rear portion meets the lower back fabric panel — by fitting a smooth layer of durable and wicking microfibre in this high-stress moisture collection zone.
 
The shorts are finished with super flat silicone leg grippers to keep the cuffs in place while small Assos logo's accent the shorts throughout.

Note: Assos clothing is sized small, Tweeks Cycles recommend you select one size above normal for an athletic fit, or two sizes above if you prefer a more relaxed fit.
