The most comfortable triathlon shorts you’ll ever wear.

We were asked by all of you many times, so we brought them back. These are our original women's triathlon shorts that come with a one inch gripper made of hypoallergenic silicone.  It will be love at first ride. 

The beautiful, black fabric is compressive and also very comfortable which is incredibly important when you're doing a long-course triathlon. The shorts should fit like a second skin so everything feels "held in." The compression adds extra support to your muscles and you'll feel the benefit as you cover the miles. Here at Coeur, we're known for our seam-free chamois which provides a friction-free barrier so you can easily, swim, ride and run in the same pair of shorts. 

The one inch gentle - but very important - internal gripper keeps your shorts from riding up and doesn't pinch. The slightly wider waistband is super flattering and comfy.  And of course, you'll have those super important pockets – two in the rear & slanted for easy access. Pair with a Coeur triathlon top for a complete look.

So, give them a spin. You're entire experience is risk free since we offer free shipping and free, no-hassle returns/exchanges on standard U.S. orders.

Taking Care of your High Performance Cycling, Triathlon, Run and Swim Apparel from Coeur

We select and make only the highest quality of fabrics for the running, cycling, swim and triathlon specific Coeur clothing. Despite the rigors you put it through, however, Spandex and Lycra are still very delicate fabrics. This allows them to be sleek, fitted and high-performing. But to prolong a garment’s life, you need to take proper care of it. 

When laundering your item in the washing machine, please do not wash with any rough or “scratchy” other items, i.e. velcro, timing chip straps, zippers, snaps, hooks. These pieces can easily “drag” or “pill” your Spandex/Lycra garment.  Also, do not use any harsh detergents or bleaches. If you must wear your suit in a chlorinated pool, be sure to rinse it thoroughly with with fresh water afterward.

Take good care of your high-performance garments and they should function beautifully for you for a long time. In summary: 


  1. Wash with rough trims such as jeans with zippers and rivets, anything with velcro or hooks.
  2. Use harsh detergents or bleaches
  3. Wear in chlorine UNLESS you thoroughly rinse it afterward.
  4. Dry on high heat. Hang dry for best results

Just so you know, every time a piece of our gear gets thrown in the drier, on high heat, somebody at Coeur cries just a little. 



Free Shipping

That's right folks. We obsess over quality and customer service and that's why we're one of the few, if not the only, company in the triathlon industry that offers free U.S. Shipping and free, no-hassle returns. 

So, shop with confidence and don't worry one bit about your order. If something doesn't fit perfectly or you just change your mind for any reason, we'll take it back.

We ship orders to locations in the U.S. for Free! Let's face it, nobody wants to pay for clothing and then have to pay to have it delivered too. That's why standard U.S. orders will be shipped at no additional cost. We ship via USPS and will email you the tracking information as soon as the order is off on its way to its new, happy home. If you need something FAST, we have expedited shipping options also and we only charge the actual cost, not any bogusly high amount.

Please note that rush orders received before 1 p.m. PST will go out the same day. Orders made after 1 p.m. will go out the next business day. For expedited orders, UPS DOES NOT reliably deliver on Saturdays. So a 2-day order placed on Thursday won't arrive until the next Monday or Tuesday.  The same is true for orders placed on Saturday. Often we are in the office to ship the order out, but just as often we are outside on our bikes pedaling through the Santa Monica mountains on the weekend. :)

Hey!  You're still reading.  That's great! Let us tell you a bit more. Coeur performance gear is designed and sized to lay smoothly on your body, like a second skin.  Our fabrics have a good bit of compression in them so should feel snug. This is for reduced drag and better aerodynamics (i.e. you'll go faster!).

P.S. We try to be super easy to work with on returns, so don't worry if you ordered the wrong size.  We'll gladly take it back and swap out until we get the size that is perfect for you.

Great for riding on the trainer

I do a lot of rides in doors on my trainer. When I ride my bike outside I have no problem with my seat etc, however when I’m on my bike in doors, I become wickedly uncomfortable, despite nothing else changing. My last attempt to correct the pain I was experiencing was to change the saddle but I still had issues so I finally decided to try different tri shorts, specifically coeurs shorts bc there are no side seams on the chamois. Well, it worked!! I will never wear another brand of shorts when I’m riding my bike on the trainer!!! Well done coeur.

Most Comfortable Tri Shorts on the Market

The combination of these shorts and finally finding the right saddle after years of trying has enabled me to ride long distances without saddle sores! For me, on the right saddle, padding just causes extra rubbing, while these shorts prevent it! Thank you!

Alicia Geth
Super comfortable!

I love these biking shorts for inside and outside rides long and short. Will not use any other kind but these! Fit is perfect.

Where is the padding?

I purchased Coeurs shorts previously and love them. I bought the same size this time but they are far too small. And what happened to the padding? Too much of a hassle to return/exchange them. I'll give them to a small friend.

Almost like the "original"

I'm happy that you brought back the "original design" shorts, however, you made the width of the waistband larger and I'm not a fan of that. Otherwise, they are very comfortable and stay in place.
