I bought two pairs of the infamous little black shorts during a recent BOGO 50% off sale. I absolutely love my original little black shorts and was thrilled to get two on sale. I’ve owned two pairs of Coeur tri shorts, both size small and both were wonderful but showing their age.
When ordering I followed the directions about sizing up with the new design, so I went with a medium. The new shorts fit well at my waist, the waist band is very comfortable, the chamois is awesome and I really like the new leg length and grippers. However, the legs are too wide and slide up as I ride, leaving me with nasty chafing unless I constantly pull them back into place.
I’ll wear them for training and make do, but I’m hoping my next pair will fit more like the originals.
