PowerTape

Gavin Leung, Coordinator of the Sports Aid Program for SportMedBC says “the feedback from trainers and athletes has been overwhelming. Since the tape does not use a skin adhesive and is made of a softer material, it is more comfortable to wear for the athletes, and more effective for the trainers in treating injuries”. Currently used by WhiteCaps Men’s and Residential teams, as well as most CFL teams and a number of major universities, this tape is gaining ground with trainers and athletes alike.

I packed them in my bag during a day hike and they melted a bit with the warm weather.” - Adventure Racing Athlete Overall Rating: 4/5 1=very poor choice 2=...
