As the official adhesive tape supplier to the USA Skeleton team, tesa tape, inc. will provides the team with highly-specialized adhesive tapes to optimize the team’s equipment. According to Tuffy Latour, skeleton head coach, “tesa tape is an important part of our equipment because it actually holds the padding to the pod and helps the aerodynamic flow around the sled. We use tesa on any open areas to reduce drag, which is essential in a sport measured to the hundredths of a second. We trust tesa tape as a world leader in adhesive tapes to help take us to the podium.”
