Rocktape Knee Caps are compression knee sleeves designed specifically for the functional movements of weightlifting-- where lateral stability is critical. Use these during squats, Olympic lifts, or any other movement that places stress on the knee.
Extended higher on the leg than most athletic knee sleeves, Rocktape Knee Caps 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 tracking, contouring, and blood flow.
Heat sealed seams for better contouring.Added height for VMO support.

very effective for Olympic lifts squats and even running. would recommend to anyone looking to support the knees and keep them warm, simply having them on and keeping the knees warm makes quite a difference. the quality of the rock tape knee caps are great and couldn't flaw them

Newitts Verified Purchase (12 May 2015)
Excellent item, very secure and confidence inspiring fit. Used for both heavy lifts and crossfit wod's that require higher rep squatting/lifting and the kneecaps perform superbly at both. Definitely recommended!

I bought these after seeing them in a magazine and i can thoroughly recommend them. I have a bad knee but once i had managed to get them on as they are super tight and supportive when doing squats. My legs felt more sturdy when going deep. They are super quality, a good thick, warm product. Worth every penny

Like these a lot, they keep my knees aligned well when squatting and are easy to put on but a bit more difficult to pull of and a bit expensive hence 4*'s.

Rock Tape Knee Caps - Excellent this product does exactly what it says on the tin. Good support stays up well without slipping down the quads and minimal bunching behind the knee.

I bought these knee caps on a recommendation at the start of Smolov for Squats. Came to Newitts since they had the best price, and delivery was impressively quick. The knee caps have surpassed expectations - despite the demands of Smolov, they have kept all knee twinges at bay. Well made and comfortable. What more could you ask? Would recommend 100%.

I've used the knee sleeves now 5-6 times and have no complaints. They are warm, protect the knees, support well and don't slip even when doing burpees etc. If I had to say something negative, it would be that the was tags tend to stick out from under the sleeve. Whereas it doesn't affect the functionality, it's not the best look. Maybe washing instructions could be printed on instead of a tag?
