BR Single Broken Eggbutt Soft Contact 16 mm Ø 55 mm

This high-quality single jointed eggbutt bit is made of solid Cuprigan with stainless steel rings. Cuprigan is an alloy consisting of 89% copper, 7% aluminum, 3% iron and 1% zinc. The oxidation process of the material gives a pleasant smell and taste. The anatomical design follows the shape of the horse's mouth, creating a soft and even pressure distribution. Due to the combination of the design and the unique composition of Cuprigan, the chewing process and the saliva formation are stimulated, allowing a fine connection to the sensitive horse mouth. The bit has a soft effect on the mouth. The mouthpiece has a thickness of 16 mm and the oval bit guards have a diameter of 55 mm. A Eggbutt Bit has rings that cannot rotate freely, which means that aids act more directly. This type of bit is generally well accepted because the mouthpiece is relatively firm in the mouth.

Maintenance of bits

It is wise to clean the bit after each use, this can be done under the tap or in a bucket of water. A bit of good and extensive cleaning is best with a little lukewarm / warm water and a soft cloth. After washing, dry the bit with a dry cloth. Cooking your bit once a month in a pan of water ensures an optimal clean result and is the most effective way to get the bit clean.


  • Never use soap and / or detergents in connection with allergic reactions when washing
  • If the bit is very dirty, let it soak in hot water for a while
