RockTape Assassins knee sleeves can be used in a variety of sports and fitness pursuits, including: weightlifting, high-intensity interval training, obstacle course racing, running, cycling and other functional fitness endeavors.
Assassins knee sleeves are available in sizes extra small through extra large, with two thickness options: 5mm for moderate support and 7mm for maximum support.
Built for Competition
Assassins knee sleeves were formulated with the unique needs of athletes in mind, and unlike sleeves from other companies, are much more than a re-purposed medical knee support.
We fine-tuned Assassins through three years of feedback from both RockTape customers and professional athletes like 2008 CrossFit Games® Champion Jason Khalipa, Ashley Horner, Marcus Filly, and Neal Maddox to provide the ultimate knee supports.
The result is a pair of knee sleeves that are suitable for the most grueling workouts, lifting events, and obstacle course races – yet comfortable enough for the weekend warrior.
Designed for Performance
Taller than standard sleeves, and carefully constructed, Assassins knee sleeves support the knee and compress the vastus medals oblique (VMO) at its insertion point above the patella. This helps ensure proper stability and tracking of the knee, and can often dramatically reduce non-specific knee pain, particularly during squats.
The extra-tall design also keeps sleeves in place – Longer sleeve ensure no slipping or adjustments
Engineered with a synthetic fabric shell bonded to SBR neoprene and secured via double-mauser stitching, Assassins knee sleeves comfortably support the knee joint through countless workouts.
Rigorous life-cycle testing by both our own athletes and automated test programs guarantee superior quality. If any pair of Assassins knee sleeves fails to carry out their purpose, RockTape offers the industry’s only one-year warranty against defects and premature failure from date of purchase.
Measure the circumference of your knee around the centre of your patella (knee cap).
Assassins start very snug and can take a few sessions to break in.
