New lines


I'm new to power kiting and don't know much about it. My kite was supplied with ozone lines and the breaking strain is expressed as 180/110. Does this mean that two of the lines have a 180kg rating and the other two have one of 110 because i have heard that when flying with 4 lines, the break lines don't need to be as strong as the flying lines. If so how do i know which are which as it doesn't say( 2 are pink, 2 are orange)

Yes, that is correct. The heavy lines are the lead (power) lines and the lightler are the brake lines.

If your lines are not marked somehow (or referred to in the instructions), you can tell which are the heavier lead lines by looking at them carefully. The 180k line will be phisically fatter than the 110.
