I would like to also ask one Q: What is a difference between bow and SLE kites?

Hi Hanyz,

welcome!

Don't worry about your English, we will understand you!
But a good tool for better English (and good for learning too!) comes for free with the Mozilla Firefox browser. There are "Add-Ons" with English spell checking.

And do ask questions like yours on the main "kitesurfing" forum, if it is about kitesurfing kites.

But as a quick reply:

The difference between SLE and BOWs:

A SLE supports the leading edge with a bridle or lines attached to it. It can be C type kite or bow.
A bow is just a flatter shape with normally also a bridle attached to the leading edge. But just flatter, no C shape.

Maybe a bit stupid question but it is finally clear in my head :)

I had to ask myself ;-)

But I'm sure some people see this differently...but it should be about right!
