Panel stitching is on the inside, subsequently less subject to wearing
Guaranteed to keep ball pressure for longer thanks to its Butyl / latex bladder.
Bladder wrapped in a thread to maintain its shape and ensure greater accuracy
Consistent rebound thanks to the quality of bladder and outer cover
Extra feel thanks to 1.4 mm polyurethane outer cover.

It's a high quality football. I highly recommend it.
Nice quality product
Expectations meet but not that much
This is my second visit to Decathlon. All the products are priced reasonably & quality is according to the price. Staffs are very helpful. This soccer ball is great quality & 2 years warranty on the stitches. I like this store.
Best quality product in best price.
Ballon de foot résistant pour la pratique du foot en loisir. Le gonflage diminue petit à petit au fur et à mesure de son utilisation.
Mes enfants sont satisfaits du ballon.

We know that a stable trajectory is very important, particularly for long games or when playing as a goalkeeper. We've changed the construction of the outer cover to improve stability. Traditionally designed using 32 panels, we've designed the F550 using 24 identical panels. This improves the stability of the ball and makes it more comfortable to play with.
Between 13'9" and 14'7" (Size 5) Between 11'6" and 12'10" (Size 4)
Between 27" and 27.4" (Size 5) Between 25" and 26" (Size 4)
Average measured variation: maximum 1.5%. We measure the soccer ball's sphericity at 16 different points and examine the recorded discrepancies. If the discrepancy is greater than 1.5% (FIFA PRO Standard), our engineers are tasked with improving the sphericity to ensure a consistent bounce.
We inflate the ball to the recommended pressure (meaning 0.8 bar). 72 hours later, the ball must not lose more than 15% of its pressure, meaning approx. 0.1 bar. The pressure after 72 hours must, therefore, be at approx. 0.7 bar. This also means that it is quite normal for a ball to lose pressure after a few days.
We simulate rainy playing conditions in a lab, leaving the ball to sit in 0.8" of water on a pivoting support while subjecting it to 250 compressions. By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 15% of its weight, or approx. 2.1 oz for this F500 in size 5.
Between 53" and 61" with a maximum difference of 4" between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times on a steel plate from a height of 6'6".
The most stringent test we put this ball through is the shooting machine test. Withstands up to 2500 shots against an inclined concrete surface at 30 mph at a distance of 8 feet. At the end of the test, we check: - the ball's general state: stitching must withstand this test - the circumference: it must not have increased by more than 0.6" - the sphericity: it must not have varied by over 1.5% - the pressure: the ball's loss of pressure must not exceed 0.1 bar
Our design team watched soccer players in action on the pitch to develop this Hybrid ball. This ball is a hybrid due to a concept that combines the comfort of machine sewing with the durability of hand sewing. We also used a bladder with thread winding (1.25 miles of thread is wrapped around the bladder) to ensure lasting inflation and better sphericity.
Tested in use by a group of 20 intermediate players. The results of the new panel design were very promising. The trajectory of the ball was more stable compared to a 32-panel ball. In addition, the F550 ball meets all FIFA requirements and can therefore be used in competition.
