The full cheek has two transverse bars on the jaw piece. This shape creates more pressure on the horse's cheeks. This makes a horse easier to maneuver and a bit cannot be pulled through the mouth as easily. In addition, this bit is quiet and stable in the mouth. The full cheek is ideal for young horses due to the pressure distribution or spirited horses to prevent the bit from being pulled through the mouth. With the TRUST full cheek, the bars on the jaw piece are slightly bent outwards so that they cannot come into contact with the side of the horse's head. It is therefore important that you hang the bit in the mouth with the rods facing out, so that they cannot cause wounds.

A Waterford mouthpiece consists of a series of rounded links. It is a flexible bit that molds to the horse's mouth and creates even pressure. It can move in all directions making it difficult for the horse to grasp the bit so that the rider maintains proper control. This bit is not suitable for inexperienced riders. In soft hands this mouthpiece is friendly but with a hard hand the bit can be sharp.

The Sweet Iron bits are made of steel and have a recognizable blue color. Sweet Iron develops surface rust through contact with (air) moisture that tastes sweet and stimulates the horse's saliva production in a natural way. This will cause the horse to foam more, which ensures better acceptance of the bit. This rusting process (oxidation) changes the blue color of the TRUST bits to brown-gray.
