I think bends come away gradually from the bottom of the hoof at open end of the shoe. They differ from turndowns, which come away more abruptly, basically perpendicular to the bottom of the hoof. I'm not sure how the two differ in gripping power, but you would think that turndowns have more "bite" to them.
