Title
(EN) IMPROVED PEDAL AND CLEAT ASSEMBLY
(FR) ENSEMBLE PÉDALE ET CALE PERFECTIONNÉ
Abstract
(EN)
Pedal and cleat assemblies are described. The pedal has first and second retainers (280a, 280b) biased to an engagement position for coupling the cleat (200). The cleat (200) comprises first and second portions (212a, 212b) configured to be secured by the first and second retainers (280a, 280b). The second portion (212b) has first and second urging surfaces. Either one or both of the first and second retainers (280a, 280b) is/are urged to permit the first and second portions (212a, 212b) to be secured by the first and second retainers (280a, 280b). Either one or both of the first and second retainers (280a, 280b) is/are urged to permit the secured second portion (212b) to be released from the second retainer (280b) when a force or contact is applied by the second urging surface (220b) onto a lateral surface of the second retainer (280b). At least one of the second urging surface (220b) and the lateral surface of the second retainer (280b) is made of a material having a measure of hardness that is greater than hardened steel. Preferably, the material is a carbide.
(FR)
L'invention porte sur des ensembles pédale et cale. La pédale comprend des premier et second organes de retenue (280a, 280b) sollicités vers une position de prise pour accoupler la cale (200). La cale (200) comprend des première et seconde parties (212a, 212b) conçues pour être fixées par les premier et second organes de retenue (280a, 280b). La seconde partie (212b) a des première et seconde surfaces de sollicitation. L'un des premier et second organes de retenue (280a, 280b), ou les deux, est sollicité pour permettre aux première et seconde parties (212a, 212b) d'être fixées par les organes de retenue (280a, 280b). L'un des premier et second organes de retenue (280a, 280b), ou les deux, est sollicité pour permettre à la seconde partie fixée (212b) de se dégager du second organe de retenue (280b), lorsqu'une force ou un contact est appliqué par la seconde surface de sollicitation (220b) sur une surface latérale du second organe de retenue (280b). Au moins l'une de la seconde surface de sollicitation (220b) et de la surface latérale du second organe de retenue (280b) est réalisée en un matériau ayant un degré de dureté supérieur à celui de l'acier trempé. Le matériau est de préférence un carbure.
