Rim Bite

This term refers to the nature of the radius between the upper face of the rim and the side wall of the mouthpiece’s cup. A high rim bite indicates that the radius on the cup is small, i.e. there is a relatively sharp edge at that point.It is illustrated on the diagram below.

You may experiment with changing the throat bite in the interactive panel below:
