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 women’s 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 (#noangrykitty) 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.

Triathlon Shorts Benefits Include:

  • Seamless chamois (Patent Pending)
  • Sewn in California, Italian fabrics
  • Unreal comfort AND compression
  • Flat-lock seams
  • Anti-microbial
  • 8" inseam
  • Free U.S. shipping and no-hassle return
  • Pair with a Coeur triathlon top for a complete look.

    Great, as always

    I've been wearing Coeur Little Black Tri Shorts 8" for over 4 years now, and no longer ride in anything else. The leg grippers stay in place and the leg-to-leg pad is the most comfortable I've worn. Just know that the newest version runs smaller than the older ones, so order up one size!

    First pair of tri shorts - not sure why I waited!

    I was supposed to dive into the world of triathlon in 2020 (hahaha) but am excited that I will get the chance this year! Up until I purchased these shorts I had been wearing regular running shorts on my rides #ouch but a friend recommended Coeur and I'm glad I took the plunge. Super happy with the fit for riding and no longer having an angry kitty. I haven't taken these for a run yet, but as I appear to be between sizes (the mediums were way too tight and the larger are a bit loose in the waist in that the waistband rolls down pretty easily while on the trainer) I'm pretty sure I'll have to hike these up. We'll see what happens when it finally warms up and I'm able to get outside!

    The best!

    Best tri shorts ever. Bought my first pair in 2018. 10,000 km and a million washes later, it was time for them to retire but make no mistake, they still have plenty of mileage left!! Loving my new pair and can’t wait to put another 10k on these babies!

    little black shorts 8"

    I initially received the incorrect size but the exchange was super easy and fast. I wore the shorts today on a 1 hour 45 minute bike ride and they were fantastic!!! I was skeptical due to the lack of padding but I honestly never missed it. There was NO irritation throughout the ride. I am new to triathlon, I ordered a different type of tri shorts and the seam gets me every time!!!! I can't wait to swim and run in these shorts. I will defiantly be ordering more!!!
    Thank you

    So comfortable but note the high waist

    This is my first pair of coeur tri shorts. Other reviews & the size chart had me nervous that I should size up. I am a size 8. The medium was spot on. The chamois is perfect, I don’t think I’ve ever had a more comfortable ride (90 min on trainer immediately after opening package). My only negative comment is the high waist. At 5’4”, the waist is just ridiculously high on me. It’s probably not an issue if you are taller. I kept them due to the high saddle comfort factor .
