Conquer the Elements

After three years of development the new Roca was born in Cabo da Roca at Europe’s west coast. The Roca was fine tuned and calibrated to excel in all conditions for incredible grunt, easy handling and outstanding jumping characteristics.

Jumping Ability

With direct and fast steering and its medium to high aspect ratio the Roca is “built to boost”. Radical jumps have never been easier. The Roca offers you full control while enjoying enough hang time to finish you trick.

Depower

The Roca is easy to tame. The delta shape with swept wing tips provide precise and wide depower for a flawless “sheet and go”: Pull the bar and the kite instantly responds with power. Let go off the bar and you’re back in the comfort zone. The Roca is made for everybody.

Stability

We designed the Roca with innovative safety features such as our 3D Foam Bridle Deflectors. The kite offers remarkably easy relaunch and tangible overall stability. Trailing Edge Battens and the new Vibration Dampening System increase the profile stability while absorbing gusts by smoothing the transitions of power load onto the full canopy surface. Stability and responsiveness for great confidence on the water.

Low End

The Roca is ignited by the softest breeze. The sizes 14 and 17 can be ridden in winds below 10 knots. Also looking at its depower characteristics, the Roca covers a huge wind range. Just perfect for traveling, even a two-kite-quiver will cover any conditions.

Additional Information

The Roca is a four line kite. It flies best with the Best Red bar and suits riders of all levels. The Best Roca comes with a kite sleeve, backpack, sticker set, pump nozzle and kite service kit.

Pro Cut Off

3D Bridle Deflector

Striving to make kiteboarding as safe as possible, we challenged existing designs of bridle deflectors. Our 3D deflectors made of soft and light foam effectively deflect bridles and tremendously reduce the risk of deathloops.

Tri Strut Design

Tri Strut Design

The tri-strut design is not only ultra light but also provides rock solid stability and exceptional downwind drift. Fast, responsive steering and incredible upwind characteristics make it a favorite for freeriding and surfing waves.

Twist Lock Valve

Twist Lock Valve

Ride more, pump less. With 3x the air flow of a standard kite valve our new Twist-Lock-Valve is the simplest and most reliable inflate/deflate valve you’ll ever use. It has a unique quick-twist locking mechanism and is Exclusive to Best.
