Assassins can be used in a variety of sports and fitness pursuits, including: weightlifting, high-intensity interval training, obstacle course racing, running, cycling and other functional fitness endeavours.
Assassins are available in sizes extra small through extra large, with two thickness options: 5mm for moderate support and 7mm for maximum support (7mm available on seperate listing).
Assassins were formulated with the unique needs of athletes in mind, and unlike sleeves from other companies, are much more than a re-purposed medical knee support.
RockTape fine-tuned Assassins through three years of feedback from both RockTape customers and professional athletes Ashley Horner, Marcus Filly, and Neal Maddox to provide the ultimate knee supports.
The result is a pair of knee sleeves that are suitable for the most gruelling workouts, lifting events, and obstacle course races - yet comfortable enough for the weekend warrior.
Taller than standard sleeves, and carefully constructed with a unique organic design, Assassins support the knee and compresse the vastus medals oblique (VMO) at its insertion point above the patella. This helps ensure proper stability and tracking of the knee, and can often dramatically reduce non-specific knee pain, particularly during squats.
The extra-tall design also keeps sleeves in place - preventing excess slippage and shifting during workouts - a common complaint of competing sleeves.
Protective gear should always be reasonably priced and available to anyone. ROckTape also believe that every athlete deserves two sleeves - that's why Assassins are always sold as a pair.
RockTape say that Assassins' quality and price can't be matched.
Engineered with a synthetic fabric shell bonded to SBR neoprene and secured via double-mauser stitching, Assassins comfortably support the knee joint through countless workouts.
Rigorous life-cycle testing by both RockTape athletes and automated test programs guarantee superior quality. If any pair of Assassins fails to carry out their purpose, RockTape offers the industry’s only one-year warranty against defects and premature failure from date of purchase.

Measure the circumference of your knee around the center of your patella. Assassins start very snug and can take a few sessions to break in. If you measure on the higher end of a size, we recommend ordering the next size up.
