The PRO USA tape and 4-inch wide strips of PRO Wide tape are now available online at KTTape.com and can be found at retailers across the U.S. starting in early 2018. KT Tape is the official kinesiology tape licensee of Team USA, and with each roll of PRO USA tape sold, a donation is made to support the athletes of Team USA. With the 2018 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games less than three months away and ski season beginning across North America, the KT Tape PRO USA tape arrives at the perfect time. The long-lasting PRO USA tape is engineered to provide pain relief and support exactly where needed and to endure intense workouts. The PRO USA tape box showcases KT Tape athlete Mancuso, the most decorated American woman in Olympic alpine skiing. A four-time Olympian and winner of four Olympic medals, Mancuso has utilized KT Tape throughout her recovery from surgery and as she trains and races. The PRO USA tape is available in red, blue and black, and it features a unique design with USA lettering. Every roll sold supports Team USA. “The countdown to PyeongChang is underway, and we’re thrilled to support Team USA and showcase Julia Mancuso with the KT Tape PRO USA tape. Julia is a champion on and off the slopes – we’ve been proud to help her through her recovery journey and as she returns to racing with her eyes focused on a fifth Olympics,” said Greg Venner, CEO of KT Tape. “This month, ski resorts are opening around the U.S., and athletes everywhere can turn to KT Tape as a drug-free solution to pain relief and support muscles through long days on the slopes.” The new KT Tape PRO Wide™ provides support for the lower back and larger muscle groups. The 4-inch wide, 10-inch long strips are performance engineered to work in harsh environments and deliver better support for muscles, joints, and tendons without restricting comfort or range of motion. It's the only 100% synthetic nationally branded kinesiology tape, and it features a stronger adhesive to stick through daily showers, humidity, cold, the pool, and to outlast demanding workouts for up to 4-7 days. KT Tape is a lightweight, elastic sports and fitness tape designed for muscle, ligament and tendon pain relief and support for many sports-related injuries.
