Neue Schule bits have been ergonomically designed using the latest technology to produce high performance superior bits for all disciplines and levels of riding. Neue Schule bits are made with Neue Schule Salox Gold which is a high copper alloy used for its high thermal conductivity and anti-tarnishing properties; Salox Gold quickly reaches body temperature and so encourages relaxation and acceptance of the bit. The Turtle Topâ ¢ is an anatomy inspired double jointed bit with enhanced mouthpiece stability.

The Turtle Topâ ¢ Universal also features Flex technology which is a development of the Tranz range. The Flex mouthpiece offers gently curving cannons to form a wide arch over the tongue. This wide arch is held in place by the Turtle Topâ ¢ meaning it is more securely centered on the tongue and less likely to be pulled through the mouth. The Flex Universal features a slightly different angled hole meaning the bit sits in the horse's mouth at the optimum angle and does not rotate once a contact is picked up with the reins. This mouthpiece is ideal for horse's that are over active in the mouth and helps to focus the inattentive mouth to achieve a soft consistent contact.
