Kite Glossary: Leading Edge

The Kiters Inn Wiki answers all questions about the kite sport. Especially beginners should find it easier to get started with kiting. If you miss some term, please feel free to get in touch with us. We always like to update our kite wiki.

Take a look at the picture, there we have marked the leading edge in red.

The leading edge or front tube is the leading edge of the kite. The air-filled front tube gives the tube kite its unique profile. The front tube is filled with air through a valve and thus gives the kite a stable profile shape.

The opposite side of the kite is called trailing edge.
