Technical Information

1
What makes the Tarmak R500 and its Magic Jam so special?
The Tarmak R500 basketball is one of a kind. Some balls are slippery, have a terrible bounce and can't be repaired. We wanted to offer a solution In addition to its reinforced covering, this ball contains a green gel made of rubber microparticles that get sucked into holes to not only fill, but to also reinforce these areas. This prevents air leaking out so you can keep playing. We called this gel Magic Jam.
2
Is the R500 really puncture-proof?
The Tarmak R500 ball won't go flat for up to 10 punctures of 2 mm in diameter. If you find a hole, bounce the ball at least 10 times. This causes the Magic Jam to move around and fill in the hole before hardening on contact with air. If the ball ever loses too much pressure, remember to reinflate it (to 0.62 bar for the perfect bounce).
3
What makes the R500 so grippy?
Having a good grip is essential in basketball. We turned to something else that depends on excellent grip for inspiration: tyres. The R500 Tarmak basketball comes with a rubber covering that makes it durable and exceptionally grippy. Its sculpted panels were inspired by how tyres are designed. They are alternating and have thick, basketball-specific pebbles to make grasping the ball a doddle.
4
What ball size to choose?
The ball size depends on the player's age and sex. Size 1: From ages 2 and up Size 3 to size 5: Girls or boys ages 4 to 6 / Baby basket under 7 age group (depending on levels and clubs) Size 5: Boys and girls ages 7 to 10 / Under 9 and under 11 age groups Size 6: Boys ages 11 and 12 / Under 13 age group Size 6: Girls - Women of all ages over 11 Size 7: Boys - Men of all ages over 13
5
What ball should you use?
If you're looking for a very durable ball, opt for one with a rubber cover. If you want a ball with a good feel, leather or synthetic are what you need.
6
How much should you inflate your basketball?
A basketball that is overinflated or underinflated doesn't give you the best match experience. The recommended pressure is clearly marked on the ball by the manufacturer. Ideally, you should use a pump with a pressure gauge so that you can be more precise. At Tarmak, we recommend a pressure of 0.62 bar. Enjoy your match!
7
What height basket should you choose?
The official height of a basketball basket is 3.05m (rim height). If you want a basketball basket for your child, you need something that will grow with them. For younger kids there isn't an official height so you can choose whatever suits them best. Up to the age of 10, club baskets are set at 2.60m. After the age of 10, both girls and boys play with 3.05m baskets

I purchased Basketball fro Decathlon store in Vijaywada . My son and daughter practice it with this ball and find it extremely good.
built to last
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Good gripping, durable material, suitable for intensive users in concrete court,
Puncture proofing in the ball as well.
only drawback would be the hard outer skin feel of the ball making it not so comfortable for beginners
Good for casual games
Used for 3 to 6 months
Very durable. Grip is a bit unusual and takes some getting used to. Bought it to play on a court nearby with a bad surface. Ok for casual playing but not for serious practice / drills.
Gel not effective

We had the same product earlier, which my son lost, and our earlier experience was fantastic. However when we bought it this time, from the very beginning we are observing that the ball is of not the same quality as it is loosing pressure and we exchanged it, but it continues to pose same problem. We have high expectations but we are sorry to say that we are disappointed
Response of the brand
Hello Sir

Thank you very much for interest in Tarmak - Decathlon Basketball Brand. We are happy to know that you and your son had a fantastic sporting experience with the Tarmak R500.
But we also apologise for the inconvenience caused to you this time. Normally the ball 500 Tarmak is designed such that it resists at least to 2500 shots on a concrete slab at a speed of 50 km/ h. It is abnormal that it had a malfunction in such short duration of usage. But we aim at making Basketball accessible to all our Users Adults or Juniors and hence we request you to visit our nearest store for a quick exchange. It would be great if you can mail us some pictures on care.india@decathlon.com . We will forward it to our Product Team in order to make sure we deliver the best to you in future. 
Keep writing to us! :)
