Taping to Increase your
Cycling Performance

Each of the circles in the image designates a point where the body fatigues during cycling. But what does it do? 

Using RockTape, we can better engage and coordinate your movements to increase your efficiency and decrease fatigue by reducing muscle vibration, increasing blood flow and muscular proprioception.

Read our Facebook post here to see what effect taping each area has.
