Rocktape Knee Caps – Red
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.
- Heat sealed seams for better contouring
- Added height for VMO support*
- Thickness: 5mm / 7mm
- Materials: 90% Neoprene 10% nylon
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.
Great product but...Review by t020673
Pros: Excellent support when I was doing front/back squats. Very comfortable to wear. I think the added thickness helps me lift an extra 2-3 kilos because you can feel the tension in them when you're in the low position. As an added bonus, they help keep my legs warm.
Cons: They bunch up a bit on the back of my knee when my legs are bent. It is slightly uncomfortable, but I can live with it. Also, the extra thickness interferes with my OLY lifting because the barbell clips them during my first pull. Because I also use neoprene calf sleeves, as a work-around I pull the top of the calf sleeve over the first 1/2" of the knee sleeves. Maybe the 5 mm versions would be better.
BEST ones yet!!!!Review by kataca
