NEW from RockTape, the ultimate weapon for workout domination – Assassins, an entirely new generation of knee sleeves. Assassins will keep you ahead of the game – keeping your knees supported and protected while slaying reps and crushing WODs.
- Provide joint support during grueling workouts and lifts
- Protect the knee from abrasions during lunges or obstacle course racing
- Provide VMO (vastus medialis oblique) support
- Stay put with a unique organic design, won’t slip down during activity
- Keep the knee joint warm between exercises
- May help reduce non-specific knee pain
- May help improve patella tracking over the knee cap
Assassins 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 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 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.
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.
Engineered with a synthetic fabric shell bonded to SBR neoprene and secured via double-mauser stitching, Assassins 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 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.
Assassins start very snug and can take a few sessions to break in.
If you measure on the higher end of a size, we recommend ordering the next size up.
- extra small 24cm – 28cm
- small 29cm – 32cm
- medium 33cm – 36cm
- large 37cm – 40cm
- extra large 41cm – 46cm
Designed for Performance
Taller than standard sleeves, and carefully constructed with a unique organic design, Assassins 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 – preventing excess slippage and shifting during workouts – a common complaint of competing sleeves.
- SBR Neoprene
- Double Mauser stitching
- Durable-yet flexible front panels
- 4-way stretch lycra side panels
- Extra tall design for VMO compression
Protective gear should always be reasonably priced and available to anyone. We also believe that every athlete deserves two sleeves – that’s why Assassins are always sold as a pair.
When compared to the competition, Assassins’ quality and price can’t be matched.
