I have the Campionissimo and T Cento and can't really tell any difference. I wouldn't spend the extra $100 again for them, id be more than happy with another pair of T Cento. I have other Assos bib shorts to but really like the KUKU design.

I haven't tried the Campionissimo but the T Cento is my favorite bib right now. The "penthouse" works well for me and I like the way the rest of them is put together as well.

The Cento is a more relaxed fit. The Campionissimo is more race cut...with better materials outside and the Kuku penthouse appears slightly different. Agreed, i really like the kuku penthouse as well. its difficult to wear any other bib shorts...its crushing in comparison.

This is the best place I’ve found for discounts. If they don’t have your size, check back daily. They refresh and sell out frequently. https://www.swissiconic.com

It seems that Assos is renewing its whole line after the arrival of the new Marketing Director....hence the sales that we see everywhere...

Totally agree, I didn't need another one, but at that price I couldn't resist.

Just ordered in the new T.Equipe Evo bibs.

Always had Rapha, Black Sheep, Castelli bibs, so interesting to see how they compare.

Makes sense to start with the shorts. That's what they're best known for and they're still the best on the market IMO.

IMO the best bang for buck and damn good. I've had bad luck with the latest Rapha PT II bibs with 3 of the 5 pairs I've had going baggy on the gripper material. RCC forums suggest I'm not alone.

My Rapha PT II bibs have been great, however, I opted for the normal length not the long. Also having spinter thighs helps keep them taught.
