Italiana Little Black 8" Triathlon Shorts



The most comfortable triathlon shorts you’ll ever wear.

It’s love at first ride with our 8" Italiana tri shorts.

Our new gorgeous Italiana 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. Huzzah!) 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!

    Thank you, from my thighs!!

    After searching high and low for a pair of tri shorts that didn’t grip my thighs like a tourniquet, I stumbled upon these shorts. I am 5’5 and 140lbs and ordered a medium. The legs fit great—the grip at the bottom is effective without being a nuisance. It would be nice if they had a drawstring of sorts at the waist, but still fits nicely. I have not yet completed a triathlon in them, but so far in training, they are great!

    Totally in love with these shorts. They are perfect for the entire triathlon.

    Very Impressive!

    I am 5'4" and 173 lbs. I am getting ready to participate in my first sprint triathlon. As my waist is 40 inches, I took a chance and ordered the Italiana 8" Little Black Shorts in 2XL because my hip and thigh measurements were in the range of the 2XL. I did a practice clinic where we swam, biked, and ran a bit and the shorts felt great! No rubbing, dried quickly, and the shorts stayed in place.

    If the waist was a tad bigger, that would be awesome!

    Triathlon shorts- different?

    My old Coeur Italiana tri shorts are amazing so I ordered some new ones. I wish I could say these are amazing but they feel different from the old ones….new leg band? Waist band seems different too… maybe my imagination?
