What the professionals say
“SPORTTAPE have helped me out massively over the last couple of months by supporting me and donating tape to help preparation for my major competitions and for the training in the build-up. I use SPORTTAPE to help me recover from competitions and hard training sessions, to prevent me from getting an injury, and I can honestly say it 100% works. I’ll keep on using for the rest of my life”
“A big thank you to SPORTTAPE for supplying us with the best kinesiology tape around to keep the Team Raleigh GAC boys in top condition. Pro Cycling is a tough sport and SPORTTAPE Flex gives our riders the confidence that they can push their bodies when required. The best situation for the team is to have 100% good health, and to never need to apply the tape, but the reality is that SPORTTAPE is an essential product in our team carers arsenal; and even better that is comes in Team Raleigh GAC colours”
