ROCKTAPE ASSASSINS KNEE SLEEVES - 5MM - PAIR
Several factors help set Rocktape’s new Assassins apart from many standard knee sleeves on the market. First is quality construction; Assassins are made from a synthetic fabric shell bonded to SBR neoprene (5mm thick) and secured with double-mauser stitching. Second, these sleeves are designed for the high-performance athlete training at the competition level—with extended length for greater stability and tracking of the knee through a wide range of functional athletic movements (including weightlifting, where lateral stability is critical). Third, it’s the graphics—few sleeves have a design that stands out quite like the Assassins. And finally, there’s the value, as all Rocktape sleeves are sold in pairs and packaged with a one-year warranty.
Beneficial for athletes of all sizes and skill levels, Rocktape Assassins effectively compress the vastus medialis (a part of the quad muscle critical to knee extension) just above the patella. This design, combined with heat-sealing seams, ensures optimal comfort, contouring, and blood flow. Wearing a pair of Assassins can result in better performance today and reduced knee pain tomorrow.

For sizing, measure around the center of your patella.
*The vastus medialis muscle is one of four quadriceps muscles. It is located on the inner part of the front of the thigh. The lowest part of the vastus medialis, called the vastus medialis oblique (VMO), achieves its maximum contraction during full extension. The VMO helps to stabilize the patella and allow it to track properly.
