Italiana 8" Triathlon Shorts

The most comfortable triathlon shorts you’ll ever wear.

Our gorgeous fabric is incredibly compressive while still being ridiculously comfortable. The fit and feel is the same size as our previous black shorts but now all your bits will feel more "held in." This additional compression increases blood flow and lends extra support to your muscles over the miles. Our patented seam-free chamois creates a friction-free barrier for the ride and the run (i.e. eliminates chafing in those areas). A three inch gentle - but insistent - powerband gripper keeps the legs from riding up and doesn't pinch. A belly button grazing wider waistband is super flattering and comfy.  And of course, there are pockets – two in the rear & slanted for easy access. Because a lady has to bring her stuff along with her just for the ride. Pair with a Coeur triathlon top for a complete look!

    Love these tri shorts. They have the right length to prevent chaffing but not too long. Great for multidisciplinary training days. The legs don't ride up. They do feel fragile at first but after some finessing, can pull them on without popping threads.

    I spent a lot of time looking for tri shorts that would fit me as an athena athlete. These shorts did the trick. I was shocked at how well they stayed in place and I completed my whole tri without a single spot of chafing! The only weird thing is that they feel so thin and fragile that I get nervous when putting them on... some of the seams are fragile and don't stretch like the material so I've heard a pop or two while pulling them on. Now I just do so very carefully. Otherwise, these fit and feel just right! Thanks Coeur Sports!

    Fit well. Wait and see

    These fit well, but I have not worn them yet for swimming or running. Just bike riding and they feel fine. I’m used to bike pants with more padding, so these were very different. Comfortable. Nice length.

    Comfy Tri Shorts

    I have been buying these shorts for several years and are the only ones I use for biking and triathlons, even half and full distances. This style has been updated now, so you may need to size up since the waist/hip is smaller than before. But the superb comfiness is still the same, no angry kitty nor chafing. The only complaint I have is the lack of bigger pockets for the run. I prefer to carry my phone and/or run nutrition in pockets when possible, but the current pockets on these shorts don't allow for much. But I still love them!

    Love these - have used them for full Ironman from swim to run and many long rides (100 mile plus) on road and gravel!
