KT Tape

KT Tape is the England Athletics Official Tape Partner.

KT Tape is an elastic sports tape designed to relieve pain while supporting muscles, tendons, and ligaments*

How does KT Tape work?

KT Tape 2 women running up stepsWhen an area of the body is injured through impact or over-use, the lymphatic fluid builds up causing inflammation and swelling. This accumulation of lymphatic fluids may cause increased pressure on muscles and tissue which can cause significant discomfort or pain*.

It is believed that when applied correctly, KT Tape lifts the skin, decompressing the layers of fascia, allowing for greater movement of lymphatic fluid which transports white blood cells throughout the body and removes waste products, cellular debris, and bacteria.

What is KT Tape made of?

KT Tape woman runningKT Tape Original and Gentle tape are made of 100% cotton fibers with specialized elastic cores. KT Tape PRO, PRO Extreme and PRO X are made using a highly engineered, ultra-durable synthetic fabric with 30% stronger elastic cores. Both the cotton and synthetic materials create unidirectional elasticity which allows the athletic tape to stretch in length but not in width. As a result, the elastic fibers provide stable support without restricting range of motion like a traditional rigid athletic tape.

KT Tape PRO’s fibers allow for moisture release which is critical for comfort and wearability. As a result, the sports tape provides greater comfort over a longer period.

KT Tape’s specially formulated adhesive is latex-free, hypo-allergenic, and designed to last through humidity, sweat and showers, and multiple days of wear.
