Classic Little Black 5" Triathlon Shorts


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 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.

I expect tri shorts to have minimal padding, but I did not expect these shorts to have no padding at all. The bottom leg bands were not seemless like their bike shorts. My legs felt and looked like sausages.

Good…not great

These shorts have so much to offer. Nice fit. The bands (waist and leg opening) have a cord like feel to them that I don’t care for. I got past the leg opening because they stay out and don’t ride up. But the one around the waist makes it easy to roll, and that’s just what it does, rolls down. Additionally they are best used for sprint tris or indoor spin class. With higher miles or more aggressive riding I got saddle rash.
Just to wear under shorts working out or to a spin sesh…fits the bill just fine!

Like them

I really like my little black shorts. I would love them more with the wide leg band. 😉

So comfy and doesn't ride up!

I originally bought these shorts back in 2016 and LOVED them. Bought a new pair in 2018 but hated the new design. The shorts would ride up into my crotch when I would cycle. But I'm so happy they brought back the original design! These don't ride up when you cycle and have the class Coeur soft lining. The soft liner helps with chaffing (I've had no issues!) and doesn't feel like you are wearing a diaper like most padded shorts. The quality holds up well. My shorts from 2016 just now started to get a tiny hole, most likely caused from me washing and drying them by mistake. Highly Recommend

Favorite shorts

These are my favorite shorts for running and triathlon. I have been buying these in 5" and longer length for years. This year's shorts seem to run a little smaller than in previous years. In past years, I've bought Small and Extra Small--I'm in between sizes. Glad I bought these in a Small.
