Title (EN) STEERING ASSEMBLY USING TWO LEVERS
(FR) ENSEMBLE DE DIRECTION À DEUX LEVIERS
Abstract:
(EN) A steering assembly for vehicle (1), such as an ATV5 comprising two adjacent steering levers (5,6) connected to front wheels (2) via linkages (9, etc). To turn vehicle (1) levers (5, 6) are moved simultaneously in substantially opposite directions to each other with one moving forwardly and the other rearwardly. Due to the angling of the pivots of levers (5, 6) each lever also moves laterally away from longitudinal axis (L) during rearward movement and towards axis (L) during forward movement. The abovementioned lateral movement of lever (5, 6) during rearward movement prevents the rearward lever (5, 6) coming close to the rider's body and facilitates the use of a twist throttle on handgrips (7,8) if desired.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un ensemble de direction pour véhicule (1), tel qu’un ATV5, comprenant deux leviers de direction adjacents (5, 6) reliés aux roues avant (2) par l’intérmédiaire de tringleries (9, etc). Pour faire tourner le véhicule (1), les leviers (5, 6) sont déplacés simultanément dans des directions sensiblement opposées, un levier étant déplacé vers l’avant tandis que l’autre est déplacé vers l’arrière. En raison de l’inclinaison des pivots des leviers (5, 6), chaque levier se déplace également latéralement vers l’extérieur par rapport à l’axe longitudinal (L) lors de son déplacement vers l’arrière et en direction de l’axe (L) lors de son déplacement vers l’avant. Ledit mouvement latéral du levier (5, 6) lors du déplacement vers l’arrière, empêche le levier déplacé vers larrière (5, 6) de venir à proximité du corps du conducteur et facilite éventuellement l’utilisation de l’accélérateur sur les poignées (7, 8).
