Neoprene layer gives you better ball handling feel.
3-ply laminated construction and hand-stitched seams for frequent use.
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 better resistance to wear, better shape retention and better performance.
A ball's grip is what lets you control it when passing and receiving.
The grip on our 500 ball is the result of many years' work with our technical partner Jean Marc Doussain, Decathlon's Sport Lab teams and the clubs LMRCV and OMR.

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.
