Decathlon launches bicycle leasing with partner JobRad in Germany

At the beginning of April 2024, Decathlon Germany and its partner JobRad will launch the 750 Euro total leasing offer for all types of bikes, including e-bikes.

All employees of JobRad’s approximately 70,000 cooperation partners can obtain advice locally in the branches or over the phone. In addition to bicycles, accessories such as lights, mudguards, bells and child seats can also be leased. The leasing bike tailored to the user’s needs is then ready for collection at one of the 87 branches of their choice. At the end of the term, the user can either take the bike, return it or opt for a new model.


Axel Thunig, Commercial Leader Mobility DECATHLON Germany, said in a press release: “Together with JobRad, we want to pave a new way for our customers and teammates to access high-quality bikes without having to buy them outright. At the same time, we are of course happy about any measure that facilitates access to soft means of mobility and thus contributes to supporting the urgently needed transport transition.”

Decathlon Germany also has a special offer for its employees: They now have the opportunity to lease a company bike through JobRad via salary conversion; the company subsidizes the leasing rate for employees by 30 percent and also offers bicycle insurance for a period of three years. In addition to the personal benefit for the more than 5,000 employees, Decathlon Germany also wants to make a further contribution to soft mobility and thus help to reduce the carbon footprint.

Cooperation partner and market leader in company bike leasing is JobRad GmbH, based in Freiburg. The mobility service provider uses a digital portal solution to organize the uncomplicated and cost-neutral leasing of company bikes between employers such as Bosch, SAP and Deutsche Bahn and their employees, who benefit from tax-incentivized company bikes and services related to bike use.

“We are delighted that DECATHLON Germany and JobRad, one of the world’s leading multisport brands and the market and quality leader in bicycle leasing, are now pooling their expertise. Together we will inspire even more people to cycle and thus contribute to a better mobile future for us all,” says Florian Baur, Managing Director of JobRad GmbH.

Decathlon can look back on a success story in Germany since 1986, when the first store was opened in Dortmund. It can also be seen as the starting signal for Decathlon’s steady global growth. The company plans to expand its store network to a total of 110 stores in Germany by 2026.
