What Does KT Tape Pro Do?
KT Tape is an elastic sports tape that can be used before, during and after workouts. When stretched and applied to the skin, it is designed to help prevent and alleviate pain, as well as boost blood flow to effect pain perception and reduce swelling. Its synthetic fibre and elastic core design also make it a reliable support device that eases pressure on your muscles, soft tissue, ligaments and tendons.
Incredibly Versatile Design
Due to the tape design of KT Tape Pro, it is applicable nearly anywhere on the body for specific, highly targeted support wherever you need it. The KT Tape is already cut into convenient 10" strips but is easy to trim down even further to perfectly fit the body part that it is applied to.

How Do I Apply the KT Tape Pro?
Designed to be as easy to apply as possible, the KT Tape is ready to use straight out of the box. A detailed guide is included to help you get the most out of the kinesiology tape but below are some simplified instructions:
- Before applying, make sure the skin is clean, dry and free from any creams or oils (e.g. sun cream or moisturiser). You can also trim the hair for better adhesion. For best results, apply tape an hour before athletic activity.
- If applying KT Tape to a joint, move it into a fully bent position. If you apply the kinesiology tape to an extended joint, you risk pulling off the tape. Maintain bent position during whole application.
- When applying the tape, the ends of the piece you are using should be applied directly to the skin without stretching, otherwise it could pull up and not stick.
- The middle part of the tape can be stretched over the selected area but do not overstretch as this can lead to skin irritation or abrasions.
- Finally, make sure the adhesive is set by firmly going over the tape with your fingers, making sure that all edges are down.

Who Can Make Gains With KT Tape Pro?
Chronic pain can make it difficult to exercise as much as you would like and as such, recovery is an incredibly important part of making fitness progress. Using KT Tape Pro reduces swelling and takes pressure off of your muscles, tendons and joints, making those crucial last few workouts of the week less painful. It is also perfect for serious swimmers, or those who cross train with swimming as the adhesive is water resistant.
Sticks To Your Body For Up To a Week!
While the KT Tape Original is made with very strong adhesive that sticks to your body for up three days, KT Tape Pro is engineered for even higher performance and can stay in place for up to seven days. With its new synthetic design, KT Tape Pro can withstand daily showers, multiple trips to the gym or pool and still be ready for the next workout. The KT Tape Pro is made for people who exercise hard, everyday.
Engineered with Secondskin Adhesive to perform in the harshest environments, the KT Pro kinesiology tape performs in both cold and humid environments as well.
100% Synthetic Build
While other kinesiology tapes on the market are made of cotton, the KT Tape Pro is made completely from synthetic microfibers that are engineered for performance. The material offers far superior strength to weight ratios and is anti-microbial to keep you fresh even if you wear the KT Pro for a full seven days.
The Very Best Kinesiology Tape for Swimming
Due to the synthetic build of the KT Tape Pro, it does not absorb water, and is accordingly moisture wicking and super fast drying. This makes the KT Pro kinesiology tape ideal for swimming, surfing, triathlons and other water sports.
Precut Into Convenient Strips and Can Be Trimmed Further
This model of the KT Tape is precut into strips that are ten inches (25.4cm) long and 2 inches (5.08cm) wide. The strips also have rounded corners to make application easier and avoid fraying edges. Although already cut for your convenience, the strips are easy to trim even smaller or into specific shapes to conform to your body.
Unbeatable Brace-Like Support
The KT Tape Pro has a completely synthetic build and features a long elastic core that supports your muscles, joints and tendons like a brace. It does so without compromising flexibility or comfort and unlike a traditional brace, kinesiology tape is not limited to specific body parts.
Stay Safe At Night With Reflective Safety
Running at night or even in the day during winter can be dangerous because of low light conditions. The KT Tape Pro features accents across its surface that reflect light to keep you safe, even when visibility is poor. Don't let winter stop you being your best!
Ideal for Proprioception
Proprioception (also known kinaesthesia) is your body's awareness of its own movement, force and body position. For some athletic training programmes, proprioception is used to gain superior body control in order to maximise energy efficiency, improve performance and maintain proper form. Kinesiology tape like the KT Pro makes this much easier and helps athletes be more aware of their movements and what muscles they are using while exercising.
Latex Free and Kind to Your Skin
The synthetic design of the tape is breathable, moisture wicking and quick drying, keeping your skin fresh even after multiple workouts covered in tape. It is also completely latex free and the adhesive used is medical-grade and acrylic-based so is non-itchy and gentle.
