Clarification about the Imus Line of Bits

We are often asked to clarify what exactly we improved about the Imus Line of Bits

Important Note:  Phoenix Rising Saddles is the sole distributor of the Imus line of products. Our 2nd Generation Imus bits cost more to produce than what the imitations retail for. Other companies sell cheaper imitations of the older style bit made overseas and sell them under the name "Comfort Gait Bit" or "Training Transition Bit" and some of them even have the name “IMUS” stamped on them. All authentic 2nd Generation Imus bits have the registered trademark 4-Beat® log engraved on them to assure authenticity and can be purchased only through Phoenix Rising Saddles. If you have one of these bits and it has failed, we recommend contacting the original place of purchase to inquire about a warranty.These are not authentic Imus bits and Phoenix Rising Saddles has nothing to do with the manufacture, sale, or profit from the knock-offs.

  • They are now precision engineered and made in the USA with the highest quality material available
  • Re-engineered internal workings to strengthen working parts and facilitate the smoothest movement
  • Lengthened and slightly flattened the copper roller to cover all moveable parts in the mouthpiece.  This completely covers the bushings to keep the bit completely pinchless, and prevents damage to structural integrity from torque. (pictures of lookalike bits often have their mouthpieces and copper rollers edited to look this way, but the bushings are actually exposed)
  • Made bushings internal on the cheek-pieces to strengthen and prevent loosening and pinching
  • Removed the side D's to make the bit lighter and less bulky.  If you would like to have the benefits of the mouthpiece while working off a non-leverage snaffle setup, you can do this with our 2nd Generation Imus Training Transition Bit™
  • Manufactured with their original purchase-to-shank ratio, which is key to effect the proper sequence of actions with the bit
  • Manufactured with proper angles of lower shanks
  • Backed by a 5 Year warranty
  • Lab-tested 100% free of lead and heavy metals
