BTWIN brand products offer an appropriate warranty for each category of its products:
Life: on frames, brackets and seat posts.
5 years: on carbon products.
2 years: on mechanical components: gear-shift lever, derailleur, etc.
Products subject to wear and tear are not covered by the warranty: tubes, chains, and brake shoes and pads.
The commercial warranty covers defects present in a product in the course of normal use.
This warranty does not apply to any problem caused by negligence, deterioration or inappropriate use of the product by the Customer. Décathlon will draw the Customer’s attention to defects or malfunctions that can only be the consequence of improper installation or handling of the equipment. Accordingly, Décathlon urges the Customer to follow the instructions in the troubleshooting guides available on the Website and to perform a number of tests on the equipment received.
In the event that the Customer’s product is determined to be defective during the period covered by the statutory or commercial warranty, or not to be as ordered, the Customer must submit a request to Customer Service.
To return an item to Décathlon, the Customer must contact the Customer service and state the problems or malfunctions encountered with the product(s) concerned.
Under the warranty, Décathlon allows the Customer to bring his/her product to a Décathlon store in Canada or to send the product back to Décathlon at the Customer’s expense.
After the product is processed by Décathlon, which will check whether the product is covered by a statutory or commercial warranty, the standard repair or replacement of the product will be provided. If the cause of the problem is covered by the statutory or commercial warranty and the product cannot be repaired or be replaced with an identical or equivalent product, the Customer will be reimbursed by providing a credit note or refund.
If a return is irregular or improper or the Customer has not read and followed the instructions in the troubleshooting guides made available on the Website, the return will be considered to be non-compliant and treated as such.
