Question Curved mouthpieces on bits- Can they still cause nutcracker action?

Can a bit with a single joint, but curved bars, still cause the nutcracker action and hit the pallet? I would think that because it's curved, it wouldn't... but you tell me!

Here is a picture of the kind of bit I'm referring to, but I'm referring to all brands, not just Sprenger:

It still would, but to a lesser degree.

That style will hit the pallet especially if the pallet is low - that is why the French link is popular now as the extra joint(s) soften the action.
