Title: MAGNETIC NON-POSITIVE CONNECTION BETWEEN A BICYCLE PEDAL AND THE SHOE OF A CYCLIST
Abstract:
The invention relates to a magnetic non-positive connection between a bicycle pedal and the shoe of a cyclist, generated by planar permanent magnet elements (1,1'), with a displaceable guided mounting in the open regions (3,3') of the pedals, which undergo an even, easily detachable, magnetic non-positive interaction with soft magnetic non-positive connection elements (11), inserted in the tread region of the conventional bicycle shoe (12) and hence an unlimited relative movement, in particular, in rotation, between the bicycle shoe and the pedal, without causing undesired separation of the magnetic non-positive connection.
