Campbell, Calif. – April 24, 2018 – RockTape Inc., a leader in sports medicine products and education, is proud to announce the addition of three new Assassins knee sleeve designs to its protective line. RockTape Assassins are now available in solid Black, Halftone, and limited edition Tropical patterns.

These new designs make a statement while delivering uncompromising performance, protection and comfort. The first of three designs, a simple black, has been requested by many and is plainly adorned with a small RockTape logo. The bolder Halftone design pays homage to the 80’s and 90’s fashion revival of computer-generated patterns. Lastly, the trendy Tropical sleeve, adorned with palm fronds and exotic flowers is available only for a limited time.

These new additions join the three original designs – Red Camo and Skull, and Manifesto – doubling the Assassins collection, to offer six unique styles.*

“Top powerlifters, Olympic lifters, and weekend warriors depend on our sleeves to deliver support, warmth and durability,” says RockTape Product Manager, Cullen Maroney. “Assassins are a product of years of feedback from weekend warriors and top athletes like Ashley Horner, Neal Maddox and Marcus Filly; they can agree we’ve built the best knee sleeves on the market, but no two athletes are alike. We wanted to offer something for everyone’s tastes.”

As a leader in functional fitness, RockTape has been at the forefront of innovation when it comes to protective gear for athletes. Assassins are designed to be extra tall, and were carefully engineered to support the knee and compress the vastus medialis oblique (VMO) at its insertion point above the patella—proven to help ensure proper stability and tracking, and to minimize knee discomfort*. This extra-tall construction also prevents the sleeves from shifting or slipping during workouts, a common complaint of competing sleeves.

With its synthetic fabric shell bonded with unique SBR neoprene secured via double-mauser stitching, Assassins are virtually indestructible. If any pair of Assassins fails to carry out its purpose, RockTape boasts the industry’s only one-year warranty against defects and premature failure.

Assassins are are available in sizes small through extra large, with two thickness options: 5mm for moderate and 7mm for maximum support. The new Assassins are available now at, and major retailers and distributors shortly thereafter.

*Discontinued Skull and Manifesto, and limited edition Tropical designs available only while supplies last.
