Sore Muscles, Joints and Tendons-Rejoice.
Need support that will endure multiple lighter workouts? Then original KT TAPE is for you. It provides targeted pain relief and will stay in place through multiple workouts for up to 3 days, through daily showers, humidity, cold, even in the pool.
Each box comes with 20 precut strips of tape on a roll and a quick start guide with step-by-step instructions for the most common injuries.
KT TAPE is engineered to perform in the harshest environments, to last for up to three days, through multiple runs, daily showers, in humidity, cold or in the pool. And just like KT TAPE PRO, Original KT TAPE features a patented Secondskin Adhesive that will go as long as you do, and-no offense-probably longer.
KT TAPE elastic core delivers strong support for muscles, joints and tendons without restricting comfort and range of motion.
KT TAPE's cotton fibers are weaved together in a mesh design that moves comfortably with the body. The mesh design is breathable and releases moisture which is critical to long lasting comfort and wear-ability.
KT TAPE is precut and ready to apply right out of the box. Precut strips have rounded corners which help to prevent the corners from snagging on things or edges fraying. Each roll contains 20 10-inch “I” strips. That's 16.6 feet for tape, all 2 inches wide for your mathletes out there
KT TAPE comes in 8 colors: Beige, Blue, Lime, Navy, Pink, Purple and Red. The tape is all the same, the different colors are so you can style yourself out.
KT TAPE uses an acrylic based medical grade adhesive that is gentle on skin. That means you can scratch your itch to exercise without having to scratch the itch that often comes with braces and traditional athletic tape.

SOME FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
DO DIFFERENT COLORS DO DIFFERENT THINGS?
No. The colors are just to give you the option to be fashionable. The tape is produced to the same specifications for all colors.
THE VIDEO SHOWED 2 COLORS, DO I NEED 2 ROLLS TO USE IT?
No. We use more than one color in the videos to make it easier to see when there are multiple strips of tape in the application. A single color has 20 strips which is enough for 8-10 applications on average.
HOW LONG CAN I WEAR THE TAPE?
KT TAPE generally lasts up to a week at a time if applied correctly. The length of time it lasts depends on which part of the body it is applied to and environmental conditions such as humidity. We recommend removing the tape after 7 days to let the skin breathe before re-taping.
IS THE TAPE 1-TIME USE OR CAN I RE-USE IT?
It's one time use. Each box of KT TAPE has 20 strips of tape, enough for approximately 8-10 applications. Each application should last for up to a week.
DOES THE TAPE REALLY WORK OR IS IT A FITNESS FAD?
The use of taping to prevent and treat injuries is a practice that can be traced back to Hippocrates in ancient Greece. In the past 40 years, kinesiology tape has grown in popularity with medical and healthcare professionals world-wide in helping patients treat and prevent injury
HOW DO I APPLY KT TAPE?
Applying the tape is easy. Just go to kttape.com/instructions for a quick video that shows you how to apply for nearly every common injury.
CAN I USE IT IN WATER?
Yes. KT TAPE and KT TAPE Pro are designed to be worn in the water and and while sweating without coming off.
CAN I TAPE MORE THAN ONE APPLICATION AT A TIME?
Yes. Applying more than one application will not cause any problems and many times it can help significantly.
WHAT'S IN THE TAPE?
Nothing. KT Tape has no additives or preservatives and is non-medicated.
WHAT IF I APPLY IT INCORRECTLY?
Unlike medications and other sports injury products, it's unlikely that you'll hurt yourself applying KT TAPE incorrectly. Applying incorrectly will limit effectiveness. A benefit of tape is that it's easy to remove if it doesn't feel right.
DO I HAVE TO SHAVE FIRST?
No, not normally. However, if you have excess hair you will need to trim the area to about 1/8" so the tape can adhere directly to the skin.
