Once you have logged into your customer account using your login and password, and after selecting the Product(s) you wish to purchase by clicking on the "Add to Cart" link, you will then follow the checkout process to the "Shopping Cart/Order Summary" page.

If you are not connected to your customer account or if you do not have one, the site will invite you to connect or create one.

You must validate your basket by clicking on "Validate my basket". You then enter the ordering process which will be finalised by the conclusion of the sales contract between you and us.

The ordering process is done in 2 steps:
- Choice of delivery method and location.
In particular, you choose the place of delivery of the Products, which can be either directly to your home or to the delivery point of your choice.

If you choose home delivery, you will be asked to select an advice shop to which you can turn for any requests concerning the Products. If you do not select an advice shop, the one near you will be selected automatically by default.

3. Price - Payment - Product availability - Delivery costs

3.1. Prices

The prices displayed on the Site are indicated in euros and do not include delivery costs.

We reserve the right to modify the prices at any time, but the Products will in any case be invoiced on the basis of the prices in force at the time the order is placed.

When you access the "order summary" page, the total price of the order appears, including taxes (French VAT), shipping costs and order processing costs.

If one or more taxes or contributions are modified or if new taxes or contributions are created, this change may be reflected in the sale price of the Products. No tax or contribution not foreseen at the time of your order may be requested at a later date.

3.2 Delivery costs

The delivery and processing costs of the order are different depending on the delivery method you have selected when placing the order on the Site.

The amount of the delivery costs will be specified before selecting the delivery method. The amount of the delivery costs is added to the total amount of the order of the Products purchased on the Site. All these costs are shown on the "Order Summary" page.

3.3. Payment

Payment for the Products is made by credit card (Visa, MasterCard, American Express) or by PayPal. The amount of the order is debited when the order is shipped.

You may also choose to use the contents of your reward account for all or part of the amount of your order (conditions of reward account creation and use specified in article 6 of these terms and conditions). It is specified that if the amount of your reward account is not sufficient to pay for your entire order, you will have to pay the balance using one of the payment methods available on the Site.

The order will only be considered firm and definitive once the online payment procedure has been completed. Thus, we reserve the right to refuse any order or to honour a delivery if a payment dispute exists with you. It is furthermore specified that the Products remain our property until full payment has been received.

In addition, you agree to receive your invoices exclusively in electronic form. You can consult, download and print them via your account in the "My orders" section.

Your credit card details are encrypted using SSL (Secure Socket Layer) protocol and are never transmitted in clear text on the Internet. Payment is made directly to our bank, which means that no banking information concerning you is transmitted via the online sales site.

We do not store your bank details on our servers. Consequently, you must enter them each time you place a new order on the Site.

Despite data encryption, we remind you that no data transmission on the Internet is 100% secure and that information communicated online can potentially be intercepted and used by persons other than the intended recipient.

Therefore, we make every effort to ensure the confidentiality of personal and banking information entered on the Site.

In the event of an order for a Product that is temporarily unavailable, we reserve the right to cancel the order subject to informing you.

The entire order will only be processed and dispatched when all the Products in the order are available.

4. Delivery

Depending on your choice, delivery will be made either to your home or to a delivery point, the list of which will be available when you choose your delivery method.

If you choose home delivery, you will be asked to select an advice shop to which you can turn for any requests concerning the Products.

As all Products in an order are delivered at the same time, the delivery time for an order consisting of several Products will be the longest of the delivery times indicated on each product sheet.

You are also invited to regularly consult your order tracking on your customer account.

If we are prevented from respecting the deadlines by a case of force majeure or an act of God as defined by French jurisprudence or by a foreign cause, in particular a fault attributable to you, the delivery deadline is automatically extended according to the duration of the prevention. We will inform you by e-mail of the occurrence and end of such impediments. If the impediment lasts for more than four (4) weeks, you are entitled to cancel the order by operation of law, without being able to claim compensation from us.

Delivery times vary according to the delivery method chosen and are given as an indication. The delivery time starts from the reception of your payment and can in no case exceed 7 working days.

Please note that personalised Products may require additional processing time which may result in a longer delivery time.

In the event of a delay in delivery, you will be informed by our Consumer Service, which will indicate the new delivery date. In no case are we responsible for delays in delivery caused by you giving an incorrect or incomplete address.

Each order placed on the Site entitles you to an amount corresponding to 5% of the amount inclusive of tax of your order virtually credited to your reward points after the expiry of the withdrawal period if it is not used. The amount credited to your reward points is to be used on a future order on our Site. Indeed, the reward points can only be used for purchases on the Site.

In addition, only purchases made on the Site can be used to fund the reward account.

It is specified that the content of your reward account is virtual and cannot under any circumstances give rise to a payment in cash or by transfer to your account of the equivalent in euros. The reward account is personal and its contents cannot be transferred to another person.

When you place your next order on the Site, you can decide whether or not to use your points. If you decide to use your points, the following rules will apply:

- If the amount of your order exceeds the amount of your points, the entire amount of your points will be used and you will have to pay the difference with another payment method available on the Site (see article 3.3);

- If the amount including VAT of your order is less than the amount of your points, the amount of the order will be debited from the total amount of your reward account.

In the event of withdrawal from an order for which payment was made in full or in part with the reward account (without exchanges), the part paid with your points will be credited back to your reward account.

6.2. Duration of validity

The amount credited to each order made on the Site can be used within 365 days of the date of the order concerned (365 days sliding for each order).

After this period, the amount credited to your reward account for the corresponding order will be lost.

Ex: You placed an order of 100€ on January 1st. Your reward account will then be credited with 5€ if you have not used your right of withdrawal within 14 days. These 5€ can be used within 365 days following your order, i.e. before December 31st. If you fail to do so, these 5€ will be permanently lost and deducted from your reward account, independently of any other amount that may have been credited to your account in relation to other order(s) placed during the year.

15. Desert Gaiters Installation

This operation involves sewing a Velcro strip onto the shoe so that the gaiters can then be attached. For optimum protection and durability, it is essential to have them sewn on, as glue cannot withstand the extreme conditions of the desert, neither the heat nor the abrasion caused by the sand. This service is carried out in our Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse workshop by our seamstresses. 

To know : 

- If you decide to enter a race such as the Marathon des Sables or Half Marathon des Sables® or the Raidlight Desert Trophy, desert gaiters are essential, as they will prevent sand from getting into your shoes

- Raidlight desert gaiters are compatible with all brands of footwear

- The price of €59 includes the installation of gaiters for both shoes.


Step 1 - Test your shoes and gaiters 

Whether you buy your pair of shoes and gaiters on the Raidlight website or just the gaiters, we ask you to try the products before sending them to us for installation. Adapting desert gaiters is an irreversible procedure, so it is important that you are certain of the shoes and gaiters that will accompany you in the desert.

Step 2 -Send us the shoes and gaiters

You are responsible for shipping the shoes and gaiters via the transporter of your choice. Please send your parcel to this address: Raidlight - Service installation des guêtres, 115 route de Perquelin 38380 Saint-Pierre-de-Chartreuse, France.

Until the parcel arrives at our premises, we decline all responsibility for any problems encountered during delivery

Please include the form with your contact details and the information you need to install the gaiters and return your parcel..

Step 3 -Parcel reception

Once we have received your parcel, we will check that the shoes are in order and clean. We reserve the right to refuse to install the gaiters if the shoes do not comply with the terms and conditions (for more information, please refer to the terms and conditions below in the product sheet).

Step 4 - Gaiter installation

Our workshop will sew the Velcro strip onto your shoes. 

From the date of receipt of the parcel to the date of return, please allow a fortnight. 

Step 5 - Returning your shoes and gaiters

We will return your shoes and gaiters to you by Colissimo. You are responsible for the return postage costs, which will be invoiced to you via a payment link. All returns will be insured up to the value of the parcel.

Step 6- Recieve your parcel

You are now ready to head out on your adventure.

General Conditions

- Each gaiter installation is irreversible, no return or refund will be possible.

- For technical reasons, we refuse to install gaiters on shoes with quick lacing (quicklace, speedlace...).

- Raidlight reserves the right to refuse to carry out an installation if the shoes do not seem to us adapted (shoe with fast lacing or in bad state) or if they are not clean. If one of these cases occurs, we will send you back your parcel and we will deduct the return costs from the amount of the installation refund.
