KK Conrad ULTRA Bits are adapted to the anatomy of the horse's mouth by:
1) Shortening the lozenge in the centre
2) Turning the angle of the link by 45° so the rounded link rests on the tongue without squeezing it
3) put no pressure on the palate
4) utilize the horse's sense of touch so clear instructions are received through the reins
*Genuine patented AURIGAN bits are only manufacturedby Herm. Sprenger.
It is oxidized AURIGAN bits that produce the distinctive and pleasant taste horses love. This particular taste encourages horses to chew and produce saliva which leads to the rapid acceptance of the AURIGAN bit.
The extraordinary advantages of AURIGAN as a material for bits has been proved by scientific research. The excellent acceptance of AURIGAN in the horse's mouth has been confirmed by a long-term study at the University of Hanover.
AURIGAN is a special nickel-free alloy which, due to the inclusion of silicon, combines the oxidation advantages of pure copper with maximum strength. This is guaranteed by the unique formula and composition of AURIGAN which exceeds the quality of the approved German Silver.
A high copper content in a bit material does not necessarily result in optimum oxidization. Aluminum and nickel ingredients actually inhibit the oxidization process of the metal in the horse's mouth, slowing down the reaction!
