The Rokkaku or 'Rok' for short is a design of 'ancient' Japanese origin. Nobody knows exactly how old the design is, but it is at least hundreds of years old. It is very efficient and is a favorite for lifting payloads reliably. It is a favorite for KAP because it does not require a tail for stability, has an angle of attack or AoA that is simple to adjust for the wind and is easy to set-up. All seams along it's 6 panels are french felled along stretch lines for added strength and longevity. Top-shelf carbon tube frame fits into edge-bound Kevlar pockets.

Our Roks are often the choice of kite aerial photographers for their performance and reliability. Our 'Roks' have been used for KAP to successfully shoot archeological surveys, Myan pyramids and ruins, breaching whales, pool parties, lighthouses and more. 

I designed the 
7' version of our Rok with balance in mind. It has a wide range and can reach into the low end and the mid-range. While it performs best in comfortable to fly in moderate winds, it's range makes it the best 'utility' kite of our Roks. If you are getting started, or need to make your first Jones Airfoils kite really count, this is usually the way to go, unless your prevalent winds dictate another model to start with.
