Unlike other kinesiology tapes made for rehabilitation, RockTape was created in the heat of competition. We knew first hand that medical tape would fail under race conditions, so we developed a lab in the Santa Cruz mountains where we could test our product until it met our standards.
RockTape may be higher cost, but when it’s all on the line, it’s nice to know you’ve got the best. RockTape is kinesiology tape evolved and enhanced, we did this to meet the demanded of athletes but the net effect is simply the best kinesiology tape around. So whether RockTape is being used on international athletes, kids or arthritic octogenarians they all notice and benefit from the improvements we have made.
Stretching is good. Our research shows that by making our tape with a 180% elasticity, we allow the athlete fuller and better range of motion. Our competitors only offer a 130-150% stretch.
Can you feel the difference? To us, it’s like night and day. When we wear our competitors tape we feel like we’ve been bound – we don’t believe that’s what anyone wants to feel when you’re walking much less running.
