What is the EN1150 visibility standard?
The effectiveness of this jacket's visibility has been certified by an external Finnish laboratory according to the very demanding EN1150 standard. It guarantees excellent visibility during the day (thanks to the neon yellow) and at night (thanks to the very powerful reflective patches). The standard also requires 360° visibility. Your child will be visible to drivers in all conditions.
How to protect your child from the rain while riding in town
The 500 waterproof city jacket has been designed for young cyclists riding through town in the rain. Its cut covers the lower back, arms, neck and wrists when in riding position, ensuring great protection from the cold and wind.
This jacket's durable, coated material and sealed seams make it waterproof. The resistance of a fabric to water pressure is expressed in mm of a water jet (test based on standard ISO 811). Our material is resistant to the pressure from 2,000 mm of water. The finished product is approved in a shower test in the lab, where we recreate the conditions of an average downpour: 60 L water per square metre per hour for two hours.
Why use recycled polyester?
By recycling fabrics to make our polyester, we reduce the use of petroleum-based resources, while maintaining the breathability needed for your rides.
A rating to compare products' environmental impact
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, trousers, backpacks etc.).
Decathlon openly displays the environmental ratings of its products.
