Good quality

The feeling good according to the price

Great purchase.

Personally used this for training. Really loved the grip on the ball but it does get smooth over time.

Have a Balling Good time!
Waste of money

Supposed to be heavy but it’s lighter than my gilbert training ball.

Great ball feel and grip for competitive rugby trainings. The ball feel is comparable to Gilbert but almost half the price. Bought in bulk. Definitely great value for money!

Agarre excelente

La superficie rugosa del balón permite un buen agarre del mismo y es muy preciso en el pase.

De los mejores balones que hemos tenido

Tiene un buen grip para el agarre, incluso cuando se moja, evita que se resbale de las manos para tener un mejor control sobre el balón. Dicho grip es duradero, no como otros balones, estilo KIPSTA anteriores que se parecían más a una sardina que a un balón.

Muy buen balón

El grip es un poco áspero pero y tamaño y peso es bueno


Mejor de lo que pensaba. Mantiene un buen grip

Un agarre óptimo

El balón que más nos ha durado en los entrenamientos. Tarda bastante en desinflarse, además el grip es muy bueno. Hasta en los días de lluvia tiene mejor agarre que otros modelos y marcas. Totalmente recomendable si buscas un balón de calidad para entrenar a nivel.


Es un balón que nada tiene que envidiar a los tradicionales Gilbert. El grid, tanto en seco como en mojado, es súper cómodo y permite que el balón se adhiera a la mano sin problema; su vuelo es muy regular y facilita la perfecta ejecución de pases largos ya que tiene el peso y equilibrio adecuados. Como guinda, su precio es bastante menor a otros balones con sus mismas, o peores, características. Por tanto, un producto TOP

Resistencia y gran agarre

Es un balón con un grip muy acentuado, lo que permite un gran agarre. Tiene buen peso, y eso hace que mantenga un vuelo largo y estable, tanto en los pases como en la patada. El precio es bastante competitivo. Es difícil encontrar un balon tan completo a menos de 40€.


El balón cumple con las espetativas y características el único pero es el precio lo considera demasiado elevado para la Marca. Hay balones que reúne características y calidad superior de Marca por una diferencia de precio no dignificante. Es mi opinión.

Hola Javier,

Nos alegramos de que el balón haya cumplido tus expectativas. Para ampliarte información sobre los 4 elementos clave a la hora de diferenciar un buen balón y pagar el precio adecuado por el:
- Grip: cuanto más granulado y rugoso mejor.
- Posición de la válvula de inflado: en la costura hace que el balón tenga una mejor aerodinámica y por tanto un mayor alcance al pie.
- Número de capas: 3 capas son las ideales para un balón equilibrado en pases largos. Las notarás porque el balón estará cosido a mano con un hilo más grueso que a máquina y mayor distancia entre puntadas.
- Contrapeso en la cámara: esto ayuda al equilibrio en el aire y mayor alcance también.

En Decathlon puedes encontrar dos balones con esas 4 características: Gilbert Omega y Kipsta r900.
Hace dos años al mismo precio, en 2017 con el Kipsta a 24,99 y hoy a 22,99 euros.
Trabajamos cada día para hacer más accesible el rugby y que con ello crezca nuestro deporte.

Un saludo!

Carlos Garcia-Parrado

A competition ball

If you play matches every week, you'll need a ball that performs for both throws and kicks. We recommend a ball from the 900 range. These balls are heavier and balanced to make them more accurate. They give you good control

Choosing the right size

There are different sizes of ball available. For younger children (aged 5 to 9), choose a size 3 ball: lighter and easier to handle. For children aged 10 to 14, go for a size 4 ball. For anyone older than 14, choose a size 5 ball. To help you, the size is written on the ball.

Technical features

Not all of our balls are made in the same way. The panels can be stitched in different ways: machine-stitched or hand-stitched for more resistance to wear, better shape retention, and therefore better performance. A ball's grip is what lets you control it when passing and receiving.

World rugby standards

All our balls comply with World Rugby standards for match use. For size 5: Shape: the ball should be oval and composed of 4 panels. Dimensions: length: 11" to 11.8"; circumference: 29.1" to 30.3"; width: 22.8" to 24.4" Leather or synthetic leather materials. Weight: 14.5 oz to 1 lb. Air pressure at the start of the match: 65.71 to 68.75 kilopascals or 0.67 to 0.70 kg (1.48 to 1.54 lbs) per cm2 (9.5 to 10 psi)


Our balls are designed in partnership with our technical partners Jean-Marc Doussain and Jonathan Wisniewski, who play professionally in the TOP14. They help us improve our balls by getting involved at every stage of the design process, and by validating them during tests that reproduce real-life playing conditions.
