Outside Magazine answered some questions about Kinesio Tex tape...
" A recent analysis of 10 studies conducted on the tape’s effectiveness found that Kinesio taping provided “trivial” pain relief, and inconsistent range-of-motion results. The article concluded that Kinesio tape “may have a small beneficial role in improving strength” and range of motion in certain injured athletes, but that there’s “little quality evidence” to support the use of Kinesio tape over other types of elastic tape to manage or prevent sports injuries. "
Those 10 studies didn't mention anything about the extra Rockstar points you get when you wear the stuff.
Looking Pro decreases pain, increases watts. Plus, you get a built in excuse if you can't hold the pace. I'll take 2 rolls.
