Fitness shorts or running shorts: what's the difference?
When doing fitness activities, you move in all directions. That means you need shorts that are long enough to keep you covered when you bend over or do movements like squats. When raising your legs or doing lunges, you need a stretchy, breathable fabric to follow your every move and provide good moisture management. All our products were designed to meet these needs which are different to running!
Are products tested before being sold?
Of course! All our fabrics must successfully pass rigorous lab tests to ensure your comfort and safety. We test them for colourfastness, resistance to repeated washing, perspiration wicking and more - we call these our "torture tests".
And after that? Is that it?
Not quite. We then have sports users put our products through the ringer. We listen to and analyse their feedback to fix what needs to be improved. And only then is your sports clothing ready!
A rating to compare the environmental impact of products
A product's environmental impact is calculated for its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall rating (ABCDE) is given, allowing you to easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, bottoms, backpacks etc.).
Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products.
