True craftsmanship and carefully selected materials
The initial idea was to develop a thinner mouthpiece with the proven effect of the Tongue Port Bit. During the phase of development Beris also became inspired by the characteristics of the Butterfly Bit. In conclusion the KONNEX-Bit is to be understood as the deliberate summary of positive characteristics of both.
The bit itself is slimmer, it positions itself very comfortable in the horse’s mouth. Moreover, the proved Beris Tongue Port offers generous space to the sensitive tongue musclein the KONNEX-Bit. Additionally the bit widens in the area of the port. That means to spread the pressure of the rein on a greater area of the tongue, the tongue will be protected from too much pressure on a small area.
The KONNEX-Bit is suitable for horses with little space in their mouth, e.g. thoroughbred type horses, or older horses (due to the dental changes), horses with large-scale tongues and especially the ones who do not tolerate too much pressure on the tongue.
Beris PRIME is made of a food safe plastic compound with a surface refinement unequalled so far in the range of plastic bits. The chosen plastic compound is made of a super soft material, increasing chewing activity and causing more salivation. Therefore the „Eraser like effect“ will not occur with Beris PRIME. Even if the horse doesn’t salivate that much this bit slides easily in the mouth because of its refined surface.
To be on the safe side an inlay of steel was implemented inside the super soft material of beris PRIME. The stainless steel cheeks are made with the most significant artisan knowledge and finally fitted precisely to their sockets
