Conquer the elements

Three years ago we challenged our R&D team to redefine the standards of freeriding by developing a new kite. A short time later the first prototype of the Roca was born in the harshest conditions where huge atlantic waves shatter at the cliffs of Europe's most westerly point, Cabo da Roca. Years of fastidious and persistent testing in all conditions, all oceans and with different riders followed. The Roca was fine tuned and calibrated to excel in all those settings and situations to guarantee incredible grunt, easy handling and outstanding jumping characteristics.

Jumping Ability

The Roca’s direct and fast steering combined with the medium to high aspect ratio results in what we call “build to boost”. Radical jumps have never been easier. The wide canopy furthermore acts as a parachute so the rider slowly descends back to the water in full control enjoying enough hang time to finish his tricks.

Depower

Even though the Roca is extremely grunty with a powerful pull, it can be easily tamed. Thanks to the delta shape with swept wing tips the kite has a precise and wide depower that follows the concept of “sheet and go”: Pull the bar and the kite instantly responds with power and pull. Let go of the bar and you are back in the comfort zone. Due to this design, the Roca is made for all conditions and even the harshest gusts and storms can be dealt with.

Stability

Performance and progression can only be achieved with gear that supports the rider. Therefore we designed the Roca not only with innovative safety features such as our 3D Foam Bridle Deflectors, ensured a remarkably easy relaunch but also built the kite as stable as possible. Trailing Edge Battens and our new contemporary Vibration Dampening System increase the profile stability while absorbing gusts by smoothing the transitions of power load onto the full canopy surface. No matter if in the midst of a kiteloop or while having the kite at 12, the Roca’s stability and responsiveness always ensures the highest level of confidence.

Low End

Due to the wide canopy and ultra light tri-strut design, the Roca is ignited by the softest breeze. The sizes 14 and 17 can be ridden in winds below 10 knots. Combined with the depower characteristics, the Roca covers a huge wind range. This also makes the Roca being your kite of choice for traveling, any two-kite-quiver will cover all conditions at most destinations.

Additional Information

The Roca is a four line kite and calibrated to fly best with the Best RP bar. It suits riders of all levels and comes with a kite sleeve, backpack, sticker set, pump nozzle and kite repair kit.

Designer’s Vision

Over the past years kiteboarding has grown different aspects of riding styles for which we have development specific kites. The newly developed Roca combines the best characterists for the proven waterman. This making the Roca one of the most versatile kites.
