Decathlon Orchard will be offering more than 5,000 products across 60 sports developed and manufactured internally by Decathlon Group.

Virtual Reality Experience

Ever tried camping indoors? Decathlon Orchard offers an unprecedented chance of immersive camping by simulating day or night camping using Virtual Reality. Shoppers will be able to experience this in Decathlon’s wide array of tent options, to pick the one most suitable for them. Out of these tents, they feature Decathlon’s award-winning 2 Seconds tent, which makes the hassle of setting up/folding a tent obsolete.

On top of that, selected tents will be sold with the Arpenaz Fresh & Black, which is one of Decathlon’s innovative products. It guarantees 99% darkness inside the tent to ensure privacy and a good night’s rest.
