PUMA PWR ACTV is a next level performance collection, with first-to-market use of both athletic taping and compression within the apparel. The shirt, fitted shorts and shinguards feature ACTV tape that is strategically placed within the garment to provide micro-massages on the skin, working with the human body to help maximise performance and provide players with a faster, more effective energy supply to the active muscles.

The ACTV tape is placed in strategic positions on the shirt to fulfil different functions and results, creating a combined effect that supports physiological performance. Tape on the front of the shirt is designed to relax the midriff for deeper breathing and stimulate the abdominal muscles for stability and balance. Tape on the back of the shirt is located on the shoulder blades and lower back, helping assist posture and increase stability.
