About Goat Tape
Back in 2011 we taped our hands for CrossFit® workouts with traditional athletic tape. Very quickly we realized that the tape did not stick, resulting in ripped hands and a bad grip. After testing athletic tapes on the market, we recognized the need for a tape that could endure abuse and withstand intensive workouts. So we created Goat Tape.
Goat Tape is created by athletes for athletes. It is crafted using an extra-strength adhesive specially formulated to withstand tough, sweaty environments. Goat Tape gives athletes the best grip. It enhances their game. And it allows gyms, companies and events the opportunity to advertise their own brand. Wearing Goat Tape’s distinctive logo sends an important message: athletes care about performance.
The Goat Keeps Giving
Athletes have a long tradition of helping others. They care about making the world a better place. We do too. Every week Goat Tape donates a goat to a family in need, through the charitable organization Mercy Corps (www.mercycorps.org). The nutritious milk from one goat changes the lives of families in some of the world's poorest regions. Goat Tape has partnered with Mercy Corp since 2011.
