Rocktape Knee Caps – Manifesto

Rocktape Knee Caps are knee compression 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.

  • Generation III. Knee Caps now are sewn using “double” Mouser stitches which greatly enhances durability.
  • Added height for VMO support*
  • SBR neoprene is a more durable neoprene which adds durability and comfort.
  • 4-way Lycra liner provides a softer feel and better breathability.
  • Thickness: 5mm / 7mm
  • Materials: 90% Neoprene 10% nylon
  • 12-month warranty

5mm: Knee support that won’t greatly reduce your range of motion and mobility. Good for metabolic conditioning.

7mm: A slightly more heavy-duty knee sleeve that delivers extra support for powerlifters, Olympic lifters, Strongmen, etc.

*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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like them I have to wrap when I squat (Old Army knees) and thought I would give these a try, I PR'd my front squat with these first time wearing them, I can with out a doubt recommend these.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from BEST ones yet!!!! I really love squats and these knee caps from Rocktape are just amazing. I love how extended they are compared to other brands. I got the 7mm thick caps and these make me feel totally secure when going heavy on squats. My knees used to be sore after doing squats but not after getting these bad boys. Don't hesitate…just buy them! You definitely won't regret it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great I was torn between getting Rehband and getting these. I read a lot of reviews about Rehband because I work out at an affiliate and a lot of people use them so I figured they must be good. I thought I'd try these out and I love them. I got the 7mm knee caps and they are very well designed and was surprised at how much they helped. They keep your knees noticeably warmer and give exceptional support. Squatting is much easier with these and you don't feel as loose in the hole. I wouldn't adivse getting these for running or anything other than lifting.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Rocktape Knee Caps I purchased the 5mm Medium knee caps. I wear a small in the grey rehband sleeves and based on the sizing listed, I went with the medium rocktape knee caps (my measurement at the patella is 14.75). What I prefer about the Rocktape sleeve is the fact that they are longer and seem to stay in place a bit better. I do seem to sweat more with the Rocktape sleeves, but not enough to where Im dripping like the Tommy Kono sleeves. As far as preference, I would say I prefer the Rocktapes simply because they are longer, but both brands get the job done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Quality Product - just what you expect and want I have been experiencing issues with my knees for the past 6 months or so--coincidentally the time that the OLY component of my training went up in both volume and intensity. I've been wanting to invest in a pair of knee sleeves for some time and finally grabbed these. I purchased the 7mm small knee caps. I have never owned a pair of rehband's so can't compare. So far I have used to: - A - heavy squat session (wearing 1 sleeve on right knee) - B - longer OLY session (snatch, C&J, and F.Squat) Initial thoughts: - Exactly what you'd expect. A neoprene sleeve keeps your knees warm and improves tracking of your movements at high load and especially in the bottom position. - I definitely notice no pain in my knees when lifting, while over the past couple of months I've felt some pain the bottom of my squat position. - Knees are substantially warmer and have noticeable compression. I'll update this review in a few months as to whether the material is breaking down or holding up as expected.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely awesome sleeves They work phenomenally. The compression is enough to provide a good amount of support, but not so much that other movements such as running or double-unders are difficult. Also, I've experience little to no pinching during squats. Overall, awesome.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I purchased these to use during my first CrossFit Competition. They work great and I really notice when I don't use them. I like to use them for all types of squats but peel them off when rowing or running.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from AMAZING Been having some some knee issues due to heave squats and sumo DL's. My coach suggessted that I get a pair of knee sleeves. There are many out there but decided to go with the 7mm ones. So glad I did. I swear they're magic. It's like having little personal heaters on your knees. Mobility was outstanding....and the support was even better. Highly recommended.
