Enerskin’s compression knee sleeves aren’t the same as any other knee sleeve. They utilize a unique silicone taping pattern that simulates the effects of therapeutic or kinesiology taping in a reusable form and are easy to use and doesn’t damage your skin like traditional taping would. All Enerskin products are made from a unique fabric called GASTEX®, which combines XTRA life Lycra and other stretchable fabrics for a truly unique fabric. GASTEX® is extremely comfortable, durable, allows for easy mobility and is usable for hours at a time. GASTEX® is also water repellent, and wicks away sweat easily, making it great for water sports or for excessively sweaty activities.

Our patented silicone taping technology utilizes an intricate printing system that prints various cells of silicone directly onto the GASTEX®. This taping allows for our products to utilize dual functionality, based on how they are worn. Wearing the taping on the inside provides enhanced benefits for high intensity activities, while wearing the taping on the outside enables faster recovery and less soreness during low intensity activities and post-workout recovery. This taping system helps prevent one of the most common issues with any knee sleeve, slippage. Slippage can be quite troublesome, but our taping system prevents this by nearly sticking onto your skin.

Our compression sleeves help users improve their jumping ability, their muscular force and explosive strength, as well as their speed and endurance.
