Consistent rebound thanks to the quality of bladder and outer cover
Bladder wrapped in a thread to maintain its shape and ensure greater accuracy
I bought this ball yesterday and so far I have mixed feelings. This ball is quite durable and I love the orange colour but on the down side this ball is very hard and it gave me some pain in my feet when I was kicking it. Hoping that will change the more I use it. Overall I recommend it.
Great ball, throw it at the ground, it comes back up to be caught. Kick it against a wall, it comes back for more! There's just no stopping it! One small issue, I bought 2, different colours for variety and changing fashion but one had slightly less air than the other! I was going to ask decathlon to post some out, but had some normal air spare and this seems to work OK. I'll buy the correct football air next time I'm in store.
Very pleased with item purchased
The ball lasted less than a week because it deflated and couldn't be re-inflated.
I liked the product, the size is correct. thank!
Do not buy a Nike football. You will get triple the quality for half the price with this football It does not sting to kick, and even if it is pumped up to hard, it still responds well. It is one of the most accurate to use and also can pick up a lot more power than most balls. Despite this you probably won't break any wrists if you are in goal, because it will likely bounce of your hand comfortably. It is clearly visible in most situations I have never had a puncture with any Decathlon balls, but have had many with Nike balls. I haven't noticed it going down at all even with intensive daily use, and the paneling doesn't peel off or lose its color even after being exposed to the elements for a long time.
The size and finish are good, but we noticed when playing with it that it was heavier than normal, so that my sons were a little more reluctant to go in goal. We then managed to puncture it on our first day on holiday when it got kicked against a wire joining a chain link fence together. Having cut it open to try a puncture repair kit (which did work) we found the skin is made from moulded foam with very little strength in the outer layer. Other (lighter) balls we've owned have had quite tough outer skins which haven't worn out despite much kicking over hard surfaces, so we won't be buying another Kipsta ball.
Thanks for your review. I've passed your feedback onto Kipsta and I've since learnt a bit more about our footballs. The outer shell of the ball is a PU (polyurethane), which is really resistant against all normal surfaces. Under that, there is some foam to improve the comfort when the ball is kicked. Some models are made with PVC but on this model it isn't used so that the resistance and comfort are better, and the carbon footprint is lower.
Do you have any pictures of the ball for me to pass on to Kipsta? Just in case this is a faulty ball.

Have used these quality footballs on various surfaces and the have yet to show any issues. Would recommend to anyone.
This football is made from good quality material, and is fit for purpose.
Very good VFM
The quality is very average You must stock some Nike and Adidas
Thank you for taking the time to write this review.
Apologies that you were not happy with the quality of this popular model of Kipsta soccer ball.
Just to let you know that we do stock Nike soccer balls:
The Moorabbin store might have been out of stock of these older models when you visited.
We do have the new models which will be arriving in stores in the next couple of weeks.

Our design team watched football 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 (2 km of thread is wrapped around the bladder) to ensure lasting inflation and better sphericity.
Between 420 and 445g (Size 5)
Between 68.5 and 69.5g (Size 5)
Average measured variation: maximum 1.5%.We measure the football'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 2 cm of water on a pivoting support whilst subjecting it to 250 compressions.By the end of the test, the ball must not have absorbed more than 15% of its weight, meaning approx. 60 g for this F100 in size 5.
Between 135 and 155cm with a maximum difference of 10cm between the ball's highest and lowest bounce. Each ball is dropped 10 times on a steel plate from a height of 2 metres.
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 50 km/h at a distance of 2.5 m.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 1.5 cm- 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
