The use of Kinesiology-Type Tape (KTT) has become increasingly popular in sports for injury prevention, injury management, and performance enhancement. Many cyclists use patella KTT; however, the benefits of such interventions remain unclear, especially in uninjured elite cyclists. We aimed to determine the acute physiological, kinematic, and electromyographic (EMG) responses to applying patella KTT in elite cyclists.
