What is RockTape? RockTape is a special kind of tape known as kinesiology tape. First used by acupuncturists and chiropractors in Japan, today kinesiology tape is used by practitioners throughout the world to treat injuries and improve sports performance.
While the use of kinesiology is often associated with athletes such as Serena Williams and Kerri Walsh, the reality is that RockTape is effective for the treatment of a wide variety of problems, not just sports injuries.
ROCKTAPE is a premium kinesiology tape that features a tighter weave, greater elasticity and stronger adhesive than other kinesiology tapes. A tighter weave means enhanced support for working muscles and joints.
Extra elasticity promotes “snap back,” helping muscles contract and relax more efficiently. Rock Tape’s unique stronger adhesive allows it to stay on longer, even under the toughest conditions. This makes it an ideal athletic tape for high performance athletes and those competing in extreme sports. Put simply Rocktape is kinesiology tape evolved.
When we manufacture RockTape, we introduce a bias into the weave of the fabric so it stretches in one direction and not the other. This mimics the mechanical properties of collagen and muscle fibres. Compared with standard kinesiology tape RockTape has almost twice the elasticity.
Rocktape is a natural-hybrid product and consists of 97% organic cotton and 3% nylon 6/12. The adhesive is a hypo-allergenic acrylic based adhesive and contains no latex.
Rocktape contains no active chemicals, drugs or mumbo-jumbo. 100% of Rocktape’s benefits come from its elasticity. – Stickier, hypoallergenic adhesive that won’t fall off during movement and exercise – 180% stretch, the same elasticity as skin, to promote full range of motion – 97% cotton, 3% Nylon 6/12, low moisture absorption – Tighter weave, which enables muscle to more easily ‘snap back’ to neutral – Sweat and water resistant – Variety of designs and colours (all colours have the same properties) – 5 metres in length by 5cm in width in each roll – Wearable for up to 5-7 days depending on body part
