This cheek style can be used for training, pleasure riding or competition. It has a 2-1/2” purchase with a 5” shank. The shank is swept back like the 6” style, but to a lesser degree, offering more leverage. When properly adjusted it is still a mild cheek, but has plenty of control at increased speeds.
