Italiana Little Black 5" Triathlon Shorts



The most comfortable triathlon shorts you’ll ever wear.

It’s love at first ride with our 5" inseam 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!

Give them a spin - risk free. We have free shipping and free returns/exchanges on standard U.S. orders!

Fit is Off

I ordered my first pair of these shorts a few years ago. I recently ordered 2 more pair in the same size as my first pair, small. I had to send them back to get a medium and feel like they are still tighter than my first pair.

Love comfort, need side gu pocket

I've bought numerous pairs of these tri shorts, absolutely love the comfort, just wore them in my 140.6 in Kona 2022. My only complaint is the pockets in back are so small and hard to reach, they can't really hold my gels. Would love side pockets for easy access when racing or long training sessions.

Super Unflattering Leg Holes

I love the 8" version of these tri shorts, but I wanted a bit shorter for when I am just running. The leg holes and seams around the thigh were not flattering on me at all. I am 5'4", 130 lbs, 27" waist and the medium fit great everywhere except the leg holes. I think a 6 or 7" version would be great!

Favorite Tri Shorts

These are by far my favorite pair of tri shorts. They’re so comfortable and they’re the perfect length and weight!


I'm OBSESSED with these shorts! I was worried about the lack of padding but I've had absolutely no issues with 30 mile rides so far. I actually prefer these to my normal cycling shorts with padding because there are no seams to cause issues. Love these!
