The RockTape Assassins Knee Sleeves are specifically designed to provide compression, warmth and lateral stability when performing functional movements such as dead lifts, pistols and squats. Unlike other supports, Assassins are ‘extra tall’ and designed to compress the VMO at its insertion point above the patella to help ensure proper stability and tracking. Assassins also provide compression and warmth while the vented back panel keeps knees cool during extended workouts.
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.
• 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
Built for Competition
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.
Measure the circumference of your knee around the center 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.
