The Pelham bit can have different kinds of mouthpieces and lever shafts with two bands for two rein.
The Pelham bit is sometimes mistaken for a doubleseam, but there are not two bit but only two bridles. Doubles bridles comprise the normal bridles, or bridles, reigns and a kerb strap group. A few drivers have difficulties with two rows of reigns. The Pelham bit converter is a strap to fix the reigns to the bit and link them with a simple harness to it.
