Leader lines are used as extension lines
on a kitesurfing bar to protect the flyer from comming in contact
with their potentially dangerous flying lines. Leader lines are
thicker and provide some protection against the flyer getting
tangled or cut by their flying lines. The outside leader lines
also provide the flyer with a relatively safe line to grab, when
they need to pull their kite around after it has landed nose down
in the water.

line as Q-PowerLine is to the line market. Made
from 100% Spectra fiber, utilizing a modification of the technology
used to create Q-PowerLine. Available in two configurations

for added flotation and to provide a better and safer grip for
the outside leader lines on your bar. Both lines come with a high
