If you look closely at the leading edge you will see some triangles. These multiple triangular shaped segments create a smooth and clean transition between leading edge and canopy. These segments improve the airflow and results in better overall performance. Also, the triangular segments make it so that the leading edge does not twist and turn. By preventing creasing, stability and flow are increased.

Multiple reinforcements improve the durability. The leading edge and struts are built with the most durable Dacron. The leading edge has been reinforced along the entire seam to protect it from getting damaged when crashing or getting a pounding in the waves, making it hands down one of the toughest kites on the market.
Clean leading edge
For extra reinforcement

We wanted to make sure that the leading edge would be able to sustain even the hardest of crashes from 10+ meters so that trying all tricks would not result in a split leading edge. All the bridle attachment points are reinforced with Dacron patches that are stitched on the inside of the leading edge. Jump higher and higher without worrying about breaking the leading edge apart!
