Weight Training Dumbbell Kit - 10 kg
This product is excellent value and seems to be of high quality. The clips grip well.
The only problem is that, if you have any standard weight discs which are 25mm (1 inch) in diameter, they obviously don't fit. You can always get a pair of standard bars as well, of course, but it would be better if they were UK standard rather than European standard. Decathlon is a French company, so it's not surprising, I suppose.
I haven't tried putting Domyos discs on a standard bar - I guess they'd rattle around a lot!
Note to Decathlon - the description online says it contains 2 x 2kg discs plus 2 x 2kg discs, which doesn't tie up with the photo or the kit itself. It actually contains 2 x 2kg discs and 4 x 1kg discs, which is much better.
Another thing I wasn't aware of when I bought this kit is that the maximum weight you can use on any one dumbbell is 20kgs. So they're not going to be much use for the really heavy exercises. Leaves you having to get another set of dumbbell bars with standard discs.
So long as you are aware of the drawbacks, this kit is a good buy.
These initially look like a good idea, but they are useless to the point of being dangerous. The clips that retain the weights on the bar slide along the bar as you use them, so after only a few reps, the weights rattle on the bar. This means that at best you have to stop and reset everything, but at worst, one of the weights falls off and breaks a toe.
To conclude, these are basically unfit for purpose. I went and bought some solid Lonsdale dumbells with a foam grip from Sports World instead
First of all thanks for your feedback, I am really sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with our 10 kg Dumbbell set.
All of our products pass a lot of quality and safety checks before to put them on the shelves so is not normal at all that the clips that retain the weights slide off, so unfortunately I am pretty confident your set was faulty.
I would be really grateful if you come back to your local store and ask one of our sales adviser to open and try another set for you.
Obviously If you are still not happy with your dumbbell set or you think the other one you bought is better we will be more than happy to give your money back.
Thanks again for your feedback and help us to improve everyday,

What can you buy for £10? I was surprised by the quality. I wasnt sure about the clips, but they function really well. Cannot fault the value, great buy.
