Cento Short

If you're after your first pair of bike shorts, we have two bits of advice for you, One, never, ever wear underwear with them and two, the Men's Cento Short from Castelli provides a ton of value and we promise that these are a great first choice. With a generous cut and nice materials, you'll soon be exploring your limits on upcoming rides.

The Cento short features Castelli's Fondo Fit. This allows for a more relaxed and less constrictive fit across the quads, as well as a longer inseam for comfort and a little more room. If you have plans to tackle some big rides and want to go about it in comfort that extends to the mid-ride coffee or rest stop, these are your shorts. At the leg openings, Castelli uses its GIRO3 leg bands to comfortably hold the hems in place without excessive pressure or constriction. The KISS Air chamois provides excellent comfort and support and an ample defense against road vibrations and minimally padded saddles. Reflective tabs keep you visible during low light and Castelli recommends these bibs in temps ranging from 59 to 86-degrees Fahrenheit which is right around the sweet spot for riding.

  • Entry-level shorts that pack value
  • Relaxed cut gives you more room in the saddle
  • GIRO3 leg bands comfortably hold hems in place
  • Longer inseam and room in thighs adds comfort at stops
  • KISS Air chamois cushions and supports your sit bones
  • Reflective tabs help you stay visible to motorists
  • Item #CST00N1

Love these shorts

Familiarity:
I've used it several times
Fit:
True to size

I'm not sure why Michael T. is not a fan of these shorts . . . maybe it's because he didn't cite any actual, specific reasons for why he's not a fan of these shorts. Out of 5 brands I've tried or are familiar with, these shorts are the most comfortable, allow the most room in the crotch while still maintaining a snug fit elsewhere, and seem to be well constructed with quality materials for this price range. In other forums, I've read about durability issues, but if these start falling apart after a year, I'll buy another pair because they are just that comfortable.

I'll take the blame on this one. And were I not already having needed some cycling shorts, back these would go. Thanks to Gates and the Woohoo crew in China, I am even further disinclined to purchase anything from that Communist country. But apparently I can't read on the internet, so I'll just take the hit. Next after I leave here, I'm going to the manufacturers website and repeat this hate. One more thing, the tag shows that it comes one size larger than was available here when I ordered, but they kinda fit okay.

So.... your hate of the Chinese aside, how are the shorts?

And how are the Casttelli shorts? Fit comfort etc? Why the 1 star in relation to the shorts themselves?
