KK ULTRA – Compared to conventional bits, the double jointed KK ULTRAs have a middle link – also known as the bean – that is shortened and angled forward by 45°.
Only with this angle the middle link lies gently on the tongue resulting in even and constant contact to allow clear instructions through the reins.
The innovative KK ULTRA bits take advantage of the exceptional sensitvity of the horse‘s tongue which multiplies the perceptions from signals given by the bit. When the reins are pulled the middle part of the KK ULTRA fully rests on the tongue without squeezing and the connection rings roll on the tongue. The tongue‘s sense of touch is utilised and clear instructions can be given.
The KK ULTRA bits provide an incomparable precise contact between rider and horse. A huge improvement can normally be seen immediately when switching to a KK ULTRA bit.
The anatomically adapted mouthpiece is very comfortable for the horse as the rider can give softer instructions and the horse‘s suppleness is supported harmoniously.

The Horse Bit Bank suggested this bit for my ex racehorse. I had been struggling to get a soft, accepting consistant contact without a huge fight, and was finding that I had to drop my hands to get him to work into a frame. I had tried cheaper loose ring lozenges which didnt seem to suit him and had settled for a sprenger Eggbut which was ok but he was getting fixed on the contact. As soon as I put him in this bit I was able to carry my hands but maintain him in a deeper outline. We compete at elementary affiliated dressage and the comments changed from always being about an inconsistant contact and needing to accept the contact to on the forehand, needs to work through more (but no-one's perfect and we're working on those things!) I was surprised at the difference between this and some of the other loose rings I've tried which looked really similar so I would encourage anyone who is having contact issues to get one on trial and see what you think. The smaller mouthpiece also seems to suit him so worth considering.
