Good Outdoor Basketball

There was a new outdoor basketball in my office and all I was excited to start the new game beginner level Outdoor basket ball. As it's well known for all sports quality products, I went to DECATHLON WHITEFIELD BANGALORE and sought some advices from Basketball expert. He adviced and aassured me this TARMAK R Model with latest JAM TEDHNOLOGY and it well suits for outdoor game. I bought and played in ground... I can't express my happiness and truly enjoyed the game. Thanks to the DECATHLON for bringing up this nice quality product basketball and helping in improving the game. I recommend this model TARMAK ball to any beginner player.

Buen balón

Es un balón con buen agarre, al inicio pesado pero te acostumbras y se adhiere muy bien a cualquier suelo, además de que vota muy bien incluso con poco aire.

A LOS SEIS MESES EL GEL SE DESPEGÓ Y SE PINCHÓ

He tenido estos últimos cuatro años 2 TARMAK R500 (el de letras verdeamarillas), 2 KIPSTA TARMAK 500 (el de letras naranjas) y este TARMRK HARDGROUND R500 de colorines, y todos han terminado por pincharse para siempre (los conservo deshinchados y también sus facturas). Pero a este último TARMAK HARDGROUND R500, comprado en marzo pasado, y a diferencia de los anteriores, se le secó y despegó el gel interior antipinchazos a los pocos meses de usarlo (parece un sonajero lleno de arroz) y terminó por pincharse irremediablemente pues el gel no ha cumplido con la función de llenar el agujero. Son baratos y tienen un excelente agarre, pero de nuevo estoy bastante decepcionado.

balon diferente

buen precio y buena calidad. tal vez con bote excesivo.

What makes the tarmak r500 and its magic jam so special?

The Tarmak R500 basketball is one of a kind. Some balls are slippery, have a terrible bounce and can't be repaired. We wanted to offer a solution In addition to its reinforced covering, this ball contains a green gel made of rubber microparticles that get sucked into holes to not only fill, but to also reinforce these areas. This prevents air leaking out so you can keep playing. We called this gel Magic Jam.

Is the r500 really puncture-proof?

The Tarmak R500 ball won't go flat for up to 10 punctures of 2 mm in diameter. If you find a hole, bounce the ball at least 10 times. This causes the Magic Jam to move around and fill in the hole before hardening on contact with air. If the ball ever loses too much pressure, remember to reinflate it (to 0.62 bar for the perfect bounce).

What makes the r500 so grippy?

Having a good grip is essential in basketball. We turned to something else that depends on excellent grip for inspiration: tires. The R500 Tarmak basketball comes with a rubber covering that makes it durable and exceptionally grippy. Its sculpted panels were inspired by how tires are designed. They are alternating and have thick, basketball-specific pebbles to make grasping the ball a doddle.

What ball size to choose?

The ball size depends on the player's age and sex. Size 1: From ages 2 and up Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6 / Baby basket under 7 age group (depending on levels and clubs) Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10 / Under 9 and under 11 age groups Size 6: Boys ages 11 and 12 / Under 13 age group Size 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11 Size 7: Boys - Men of all ages over 13

What ball should you use?

If you want a very durable ball, go for a rubber ball. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.

How much should you inflate your basketball?

A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated doesn't give you the best match experience. The recommended pressure is clearly marked on the ball by the manufacturer. Ideally, you should use a pump with a pressure gauge so that you can be more precise. At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bars. Enjoy your match!

What height basket should you choose?

The official height of a basketball basket is 10 ft. (rim height). If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them. For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best. Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 8'6". After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 10' baskets
