KT Tape Handles the Heat

KT Tape Handles the Heat

Pro Cyclist, Registered Nurse and avid KT Tape user Susannah Breen recently competed in Chico, California for a road race with KT Tape in tow.  Susannah is a rider and co-manager of the Wells Fargo Racing Team.  She sent us this great testimonial about how well KT Tape performs under extreme heat and sweat.  Thanks Susannah!

"I have been wearing KT Tape all the time, at work, when I sleep, etc, etc, and I am continually impressed at how well the adhesive remains intact after showers and repeated days of wear. I believe the best benefit is actually cumulative; the more (not just during sports activities) and longer (even at night during sleep) you wear the tape, the better the benefits of healing and support it offers.

This weekend, I was especially impressed as the team participated in a small stage race in Chico, Ca.  I applied KT Tape to my thigh Friday morning before the 90 mile road race and it stayed intact throughout the entire event despite 100 plus degree temperatures.  After the race I cooled off in the river, showered, and went to bed.  The next morning the tape still looked and felt good, so I re-applied sunscreen over it and felt great in the 45 minute criterion, another shower, and 10 mile time trial – both under the same blistering hot temps and seriously sweaty conditions. 

Many of the other cyclists asked me about the tape and how well it worked under such extreme conditions and I was happy to tell them about my positive experience.  Thanks again to KT Tape for totally turning my season around!
