Title (EN) SKI AND HINGED BOOT APPARATUS WITH CENTRAL FLEXED STRUCTURE
(FR) ENSEMBLE SKI ET CHAUSSURE DE SKI AVEC STRUCTURE CENTRALE FLEXIBLE
Abstract:
(EN) A ski (10), ski boot (20) and bindings assembly cooperate with one another by positioning a fulcrum element (50) along a central section of the ski (10) between the bindings (12, 14). The ski boot (20) is flexible so that flexing of the ski boot (20) against the fulcrum element (50) applies a bending force to the central section. The fulcrum element (50) may be mounted on the ski (10), the ski boot (20) or one of the bindings (12, 14), and can be integrally constructed with any of these structures. The fulcrum element (50) may be adjustable in position and height and provides a low friction contact surface area. Preferably, the fulcrum element (50) is transverse to the ski (10) proximate to the flexing axis of the ski boot (20).
(FR) On obtient un mouvement de coopération réciproque entre un ski (10), une chaussure de ski (20) et une unité de fixation en disposant un élément de point d'appui de levier (50) le long d'une section centrale du ski (10) entre les deux parties (12, 14) de l'unité de fixation. La chaussure de ski (20) est flexible, de sorte que son fléchissement contre l'élément de point d'appui de levier (50) exerce une force de flexion sur la section centrale. L'élément de point d'appui de levier (50) peut être monté sur le ski (10), sur la chaussure de ski (20) ou sur l'une des deux parties (12, 14) de l'unité de fixation et il peut être conçu solidaire avec l'une de ces structures. L'élément de point d'appui de levier (50) peut être de position et de hauteur réglables et forme une zone de surface de contact à faible friction. L'élément de point d'appui de levier (50) est de préférence disposé transversalement au ski (10) à proximité de l'axe de fléchissement de la chaussure de ski (20).
