Default Bataleon Edge Wrap?

Do the Bataleon boards have full wrap edges, specifically the Riot? If not, where do they end; just past (1"-2") the contact point, or ...? Thanks.

not by much... keep in mind that edge which is probably about a foot in length will only way a few ounces... so no big loss

Lib Tech uses UHMW Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene. So there is an edge cover, if you will, but it isn't like a traditional steel edge.
