Classic 8" Triathlon Shorts

You asked so we brought them back! Our original tri short with a one inch internal, hypoallergenic silicone gripper is love at first ride. 

Our gorgeous black fabric is incredibly compressive while still being ridiculously comfortable. That means they should fit like a second skin while all your bits feel "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). A one inch gentle - but insistent - internal 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 these triathlon shorts with any Coeur triathlon top for a complete look!

    Bring back the Original

    I have been a diehard purchaser of Couer branded Tri gear for more than seven years. The two recent purchases were so disappointing! Where are your true original shorts styles? The new ones aren’t the same fit and they aren’t as comfortable as I think it is a slight change in fabric. The sizing also changed as I had to get a size larger than my old ones even though they still fit perfect. So sad!

    Love my new tri shorts!

    Great fit. Shorts remained nice fit through my triathlon… no creeping up in the legs or waistband sliding down. Super lightweight and just enough padding for my bike ride. Definitely a big fan now of Coeur!

    First time, new triathlete lots of Pros a few minor suggestions

    I'm new into triathlon this year and bought the coeur black shorts for my first mini triathlon. Here are my pros and cons for the shorts and the company. I researched the women's companies that seemed to come up and decided to try these for a couple of reasons. First pro, I liked the free shipping and returns. That took some of the fit concerns off my mind for buying online. Second, and this could be a con but the price certainly wasn't low. I found much cheaper black shorts online and went back and forth on what to do for my triathlon. but it seemed to be a little lower than the other women's brands I found. So, on the high end, but not the most expensive. Third, I'm very pleased with the shorts. Fabric is heavy but not too much. I wondered about the fleece pad but it's great and I haven't had any chafing at all even after swimming, biking and running in the same pair. To be fair, this is my first pair of tri shorts and my first tri, so I don't have anything to compare them to, but super comfy. Now for the only con. I'm particularly narrow in the hips and don't think the size chart does a great job if you're narrow in the hips. To their credit they did process an exchange and free postage, so that's why its 5 stars not 4, but maybe think about more detail in the size chart and talk more about the fleece because that's different but good.
