Genesis® Excel™ Classic protection tapes provide you with superior protection against blisters, cuts and abrasions. They are available in five distinct styles that range in texture, thickness and material stretch properties. This gives you a multitude of options to fine tune the speed of your release, plus the ability to layer pieces for the perfect fit with less waste, and the power of Kinesiology to increase blood flow and control swelling. The easy to read visual guides on the back of the packaging quickly let you determine which Excel™ is best for you.

Excel™ Classic 1 - Fastest Release
Our thinnest performance tape also happens to be the quickest releasing tape in the Excel™ line. It features a quality synthetic material that has a fine knit weave for a smooth, almost silky, feel. Plus, the extra thin profile gives it the most stretch in either direction. If you like a quicker than normal release, you'll have no hang ups here.
Excel™ Classic 2 - Med-Fast Release
Excel™ Classic 2 has a release speed that is close to, if not slightly quicker than, bare skin. It has a smooth feel to its medium weave pattern, and is a step up in both thickness and texture from Excel™ 1. If you are looking more for protection and fit from your tape, without a drastic change to your release speed, then blue is for you.
Excel™ Classic 3 - Medium Release
Excel™ Classic 3 is the thickest of the three synthetic tapes, yet provides a medium release speed for the line. It will be slightly slower than bare skin, and has a tighter weave pattern with a soft, almost fuzzy, feel. A very "middle of the road" style for fit and release, yet it offers a high level of protection.
Excel™ Classic 4 - Med-Slow Release
Excel™ 4 is a cotton tape with a medium weave that is similar to Excel™ 2 in appearance, but with a much thicker profile. You will notice a slower release speed due to the higher friction material, but the protection is outstanding. The combination of thickness and weave pattern make this a great "base" option for layering tape.
Excel™ Classic 5 - Slow Release
Our thickest tape has a loose weave pattern and coarse texture that will noticeably slow down your release speed. Its feel is soft, but coarse enough that we don't even print our logos on it. Excel™ 5 is best chosen for its release speed more than for its maximum level of fit and protection.
