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!

    Still great but not as good as the old style

    I LOVE coeur little black collection. It’s my only bottom for rides and triathlons. The 8” is perfect for my chub rub and thick behind. I’ve had the old style for 6+ years in large and it finally gave out so I ordered these- the new style. I had to size up to XL, and they fit just isn’t as comfortable/ flattering as the old pair. So far they have held up fine but I’ve had them 1 month.

    The shorts that CAN

    Finally found a pair of shorts that don't squeeze my meaty thighs to death. The edge is just right. I probably should have ordered a size up based on the work it takes to get them on, but these are really great and I would buy again. The seat I use needs thin chamois, and these hit the mark.

    Best Tri Shorts yet!

    I have worn Coeur tri shorts for years and these have a different, smooth chamois versus the previous "felt" fabric. I adore this version - it doesn't pull my hairs or cause as much friction anymore and it stays flatter versus bunching on the sides of the saddle! These would be 5-stars-wonderful if the waistband at the top was as stretchy as the rest of the shorts. The elastic is thin but it digs into my stomach and makes the top of the shorts so tight, but the top also rolls down instantly in aero. I'm going to try cutting the elastic to see if that helps because I love everything else about the shorts. 4-stars because of the smooth Coeur "happy kitty" chamois and lovely 8" shorts that don't roll up my thighs for 100+ miles!

    Best bike shorts ever!

    These biking shorts are without a doubt the best biking shorts I have ever had and I am 73, and a cycling addiction for ,,, let’s just say,,, a very very long time. I am 5’4 and 115 lbs. I have looked and looked for shorts that had length and a waist. I hate the cut of all the bike shorts out there. Why do they think people want their tummies hanging over the top of their shorts? I have no tummy but I don’t want my navel waving in the wind either. These shorts provide me all the performance and modesty I require. Go buy yourself a pair and be enamored like me!!
