Kit is good for the money, but experienced same problem as other purchasers, damaged storage box upon delivery, but decathlon were very good regarding this and gave me a gift voucher. Not actually used it yet as been busy with work, but weights are weights!!!
Really impressed with service. Goods delivered within days of ordering. No fuss transaction with great support back up.
The items I purchased was exactly as described and of good quality. Top of my list now for purchasing sports equipment
There is no problem whatsoever with the actual weights and bars. My issue is with the case. It was broken when I got it- I did report it but then through my own fault never followed it up. And has proceeded to break more. It’s almost as if the case is not substantial enough for the product. This doesn’t mean that there is a problem with the weights, just a minor thing to be aware of as a product as a whole
The weights and the way they assemble is spot on. The only niggle which seems to be a reoccurring theme in other reviews is the quality of the case. I had mine delivered to the shop and when I unpacked it at home one side where the wheel sits was broken.
Apart from that I would recommend no problem at all.
The weights themselves and the bars are fine. The spin locks loosen every set so need tightening, and have almost undone completely a few times. The main issue is the bars are an odd diameter - much larger than the industry standard. As a result, you can't add weight as you progress. No one sells more weights that'll fit (even decathlon seemingly - they only sell larger rubber weights). In retrospect wish I'd got some slightly more expensive main brand weights - atleast I could've added to them, now I need to buy everything again.
Thanks to let us know your opinion on Weight Training Weight Kit 50kg. You are right, at the moment we are selling 28mm diameter discs that is different from the UK, more popular, 1 inch. We are aware about that and we are working on adapting the international Decathlon production to be more "local". I've noticed that online it's not advertised the diameter, I'll fix this immediately. Really thanks for your feedback and don t forget you can claim a total refund or a product change in your nearest Decathlon store
3sets there 2had broken boxes. Got one that looked undamaged paid for it then before I left the store noted the damage the service desk fell over backwards to do nothing no not of damage log of complaint just said refund it and order online. Duty area staff said no reduction could be given and said "we only make 2p or something like that" I got the set for the box separately was cheaper I'm descusted the box is in the bin very disappointing. Refund a buy on line! I sure it would come in perfect condition like it did in store
Thanks to give us your feedback. I m really sorry a lot to hear about your issue with Weight Training Weight Kit 50kg. We will investigate to understand how we can prevent damages on the box and how we can avoid situation like yours.
Wonderful little set
Mine arrived yesterday I took it back this morning and got a refund because the case they come in was broke and when I went to exchange for another one in the shop ALL 3 they had on shop floor were also broken. The weights look fine but the whole point of this product for me was the carry case so it could be used for travel. The guy in the shop said it's not designed for travelling just best to keep in your house. I'm in shock at how flimsy they can make a case that needs to hold that much weight. And it's VERY HEAVY, not just 50kg and it doesnt stand up either it's a just a very bad design i don't even know how it has any good reviews at all.
Thanks to give us your opinion on Weight Training Weight Kit - 50 kg. I m really sorry to hear your disappointment on the product. We knew that and we are going to change the case in the next collection.
Photo's suggest it'll stand but turns out it needs leaning against something to fit in small gap which is a little risky with 50+kg
Great set of weights. All cast iron disks. Chrome on steel bar that two Half's screw together. Plus two barbells. This is my second set I've bought..
Plus additional larger disks.. all in all very pleased.
