Description

  • The invention relates to a ski binding according to the preamble of claim 1.
  • At one of the DE 26 60 145 C2 known ski binding of this type is the suitable for touring walking plate locked in its rear area by two laterally arranged locking elements against two fixed to the ski headband. In order to release the plate for the tour position, these locking elements must be moved or pivoted. The EP 0 219 717 describes a ski binding, with a plate on which a sole holder and a heel holder are mounted. The plate is held in a down position in the front and rear of locking elements, wherein the front locking element in front of the sole holder and the rear locking element behind the heel holder are arranged under or behind the plate. To ensure that the plate does not bend even under extreme loads, thereby releasing the locking mechanism by the rear locking element, the plate must be designed to be rigid. From the FR 2 741 543 is a ski binding with a plate known, wherein the plate in its front region forms a hinge for an arranged in the ski boot sole axis and in the rear region has a longitudinally displaceable along the ski wedge wedge, which can be pushed to touring under the sole of the ski boot. The US 4,029,336 relates to a ski binding in which the ski boot is connected by means of a cable and a spiral spring connected to the cable in a first position for the downhill and in a second position for the ski touring. From the DT 24 62 549 A1 is a ski binding, with a plate to be fastened in the front region of the sole of the ski boot, which forms a pivot connection with a base connected to the ski. Behind the ski boot, a locking device is firmly connected to the ski, by means of which the ski boot can be locked to the ski boot sole or a plate inserted in the rear part of the ski boot sole. The DE 24 01 639 A1 describes a ski binding that is suitable for alpine skiing as well as for touring, with a front in the area about an axis lying transversely to the longitudinal axis upwards pivotable plate for the ski boot. The ski boot can be fixed in the rear area via a rear locking element on an abutment mounted on the ski.
  • An advantage of this arrangement of locking elements is that they are positioned within the binding region, ie between the front sole holder and the rear heel holder. Compared to the usual locking elements of touring plates, which are fixable behind the heel holder on the ski, results in a lower tension of the ski and a better power transmission when skiing. A disadvantage of the known embodiment, however, is that the plate must be made relatively stiff in order to identify sufficient strength in alpine skiing and to prevent the plate tilts especially when edges of the ski in the front area. This leads to a low tilting stiffness, which is necessary especially in alpine skiing.
  • So far, there are either special touring bindings with specific characteristics for touring and adverse effects on downhills, or there are alpine ski bindings that have the specific characteristics of alpine skiing but no touring characteristics.
  • Recently, a new ski technique is increasingly used, which is known by the term "freeriding". As a rule, a wider ski than conventional is used in order to be able to drive off-piste in deep snow. Nevertheless, great importance is attached to a stable behavior when driving off, esp. A large tilting rigidity. In order to get to places off the track, also a tour property is desired, i. a way to allow by swinging the ski boot a Gehmöglichkeit, which usually requires a mitschwenkenden plate.
  • The desirable specific properties of such a ski binding are contrary to one another, so that there is still no satisfactory example in the prior art. It is therefore an object of the invention to provide a ski binding, which also offers unrestricted possibilities of downhill skiing in addition to good touring properties, without the Kippsteifigkeit the ski binding is impaired. Nevertheless, the ski binding should not be much heavier than a conventional ski binding, ie the mitschwenkende plate should either be flexible and / or can consist of a lightweight material.
  • According to the invention, this object is achieved by the characterizing features of claim 1.
  • Advantageous embodiments of the invention are described in the subclaims.
  • The invention is therefore based on the general idea that the plate is fixed and stiffened on the ski like a conventional alpine ski binding by the additional locking element in the front region of the ski binding, esp. In the ball area of the ski boot, i. The plate is anchored in the locked state at the front and at the rear end and in between several times on skifesten parts.
  • The invention will be explained in more detail with reference to the drawing. Show

  • Fig. 9 a perspective view of a variant of this embodiment (with front lever 24),
  • Fig. 10 a side view of this variant and
  • Fig. 11 a vertical central longitudinal section of this variant.
  • In the Fig. 1 shown ski binding 1 has a front sole holder 2 and a heel holder 3, which hold a sole 4 of a conventional alpine ski boot or a touring ski boot on a plate 5. The triggering function, the mechanics and adjustability of this front sole holder 2 and the heel holder 3 are basically known and will therefore not be described in detail here.
  • The plate 5 is, as is known, pivotable about a front axis 6 upwards. In this case, this axis 6 is arranged below the front sole holder 2 transversely to the ski longitudinal direction on a ski bearing part 7. In order to achieve this pivoting of the plate 5, the rear end of the plate 5 in the direction of arrow "T" must be freely movable upwards, i. be positionable from a locked position to an unlocked position.
  • The inventive ski binding 1 therefore has in the in Fig. 1 illustrated embodiment, front locking elements 8 and rear locking elements 9, which are arranged below the plate 5. The locking elements consist of a ski arranged on the lever mechanism 10, which has two coupling 11, 11 ', which are fixed at one end to a hub 12 and at the other of locking pins 13, 13'.
  • Preferably, the front locking element 8 is arranged below the ball area of the shoe sole and the rear locking element 9 below the heel area in order to allow a good power transmission to the ski. This arrangement has the other Advantage that the locking elements are within the binding area or the area of the shoe sole and not outside, so that the natural Skidurchbiegung is practically not adversely affected.
  • On the plate 5 are now recesses 14, 14 'provided in bearing elements 15, 15', in which engage the locking pins 13, 13 'for locking the plate 5 on the ski. Instead of two recesses and locking pins, as in Fig. 1 shown, of course, only one recess and each 1 latch pin can be provided. Also, the locking pin may have a different shape than shown in the embodiment.
  • To unlock the plate 5 for touring, only the turntable 12 in the direction of rotation "A" (see Fig. 2 ) are twisted. The fixed to the hub 12 couplings 11, 11 'are rotated with and thus the locking pins 13, 13' synchronously pushed out of the recesses 14, 14 '. Thereafter, the locking elements 8 and 9 are unlocked and the plate 5 can be pivoted together with the shoe in the direction of arrow "T" for touring. In order to re-lock the plate 5 for alpine downhill skiing, it is necessary to proceed in the opposite order as described above. To operate the threshing wheel 12 easily, this has a non-illustrated handle, which can protrude laterally from the ski binding. Of course, other operating means are possible without departing from the scope of the invention.
  • In the 3 and 4 another embodiment is shown in which the ski binding 1 also front 8 and rear locking elements 9 has. In contrast to the exemplary embodiment described above, however, the entire plate 5 is displaced here from the ski bearings 15, 15 'or their recesses 16, 16' in the longitudinal direction of the ski (see arrow "B"), whereby the bar webs 17 fastened underneath the plate are moved , 17 'from the in Fig. 3 illustrated locked position for the downhill running in the Fig. 4 shown unlocked position shifted for the touring ski, so that a pivoting of the plate is also possible up here.
  • In order to move the locking bars 17, 17 'and thus also the plate 5 in the direction of arrow "B" and vice versa, a not-shown lever mechanism is provided which, as in the embodiment according to Fig. 1 may be formed from a crank mechanism but also from any other adjustment mechanism. It is also included This embodiment also possible to provide only one locking element, for example in the central region of the plate.
  • It should be noted that the present invention is not limited to the described and illustrated embodiment, but that modifications apparent to those skilled in the art are intended to be included.
  • Based on Fig. 5 to 11 In the following, a particularly preferred embodiment will be described in which, to the greatest possible extent, reference is made to FIGS 3 and 4 illustrated design principles use is made.
  • On the ski 20, two flexible base plates 21 and 22 (in Fig. 5 not shown), which are designed so that they do not oppose flexural movements of the ski 20 any significant resistance. On these base plates 21 and 22 guide rails 21 'and 22' are formed, for example, as angle profiles with one formed on the associated base plate 21 and 22 vertical leg and a molded on the upper edge of the vertical leg horizontal leg, said horizontal legs in opposite directions can point outwards. On the guide rails of the front in the longitudinal direction of the base plate 21, the bearing part 7 is guided longitudinally displaceable. For this purpose, the bearing part 7 has substantially complementary to the guide rails shaped guide elements 23 which engage around the aforementioned horizontal leg of the guide rails, so that the bearing part 7 is held virtually free of play on the front base plate 21 by positive engagement with the guide rails in the transverse and vertical directions.
  • The bearing part 7 can be moved by means of a hand lever 24 between a front in the ski longitudinal direction and a rear end position in the ski longitudinal direction, when the hand lever is folded from its resting on the ski top layer in the other on the ski top resting position. The hand lever 24 is pivotally mounted on the front base plate 21 or on the Skioberseite fixed bearing blocks about an axis parallel to Skiquerachse and forms together with a leaf spring 25, one end of which is fixedly connected to the bearing part 7 and the other end by means of a transverse axis 26th is hinged to the hand lever 24, a toggle-like unit. The leaf spring 25 is formed with a certain bias, such that with the hand lever 24th hingedly connected leaf spring end, the hand lever 24 in each case placed on the ski top position to stretch, with the toggle lever formed by the leaf spring 25 and the lever 24 is in a dead center or Übertotpunktlage when the hand lever 24 placed in one direction or the other on the ski top is. Accordingly, the bearing member 7 is held immovably in the forward or rearward position in the ski longitudinal direction depending on the position taken by the hand lever 24, resting on the ski top end position.
  • On the bearing part 7, the base plate 5 is pivotally mounted about the transverse axis 2 6 . In this case, the base plate 5 is held virtually immovable on the ski upper side when the bearing part 7 is displaced when placed on the ski upper side base plate 5 from its rear end in the ski longitudinal direction in the front longitudinal direction in the ski longitudinal direction.
  • In this forward displacement of the resting on the top of the ski stand 5 act on the bottom of the base plate 5 arranged guide elements 28 which are shaped similar to the guide elements 23 of the bearing part 7, latching with the horizontal webs of the guide rails 21 'on the front base plate 21 and similar guide rails 22nd 'on the base plate 22 together. If the base plate 5 is placed in the rear in the longitudinal direction of the bearing part 7 on the ski top, take the near the front end of the base plate 5 arranged guide elements 28 a position behind the longitudinal direction in the rear ends of the guide rails 21 'of the front base plate 21, while the arranged further rear guide elements 28 of the base plate 5 each have a position on corresponding recesses of the horizontal leg of the guide rails 22 'of the rear base plate 22 occupy. Now, if the bearing part 7 is moved forward in the ski longitudinal direction by the hand lever 24 is folded from its resting on the ski top layer position by about 180 ° in its other resting on the ski top layer, the guide elements 28 are each moved to a position, in which they encompass the horizontal webs of the guide rails 21 'and 22' of the base plates 21 and 22, so that the base plate 5 is held without play on the base plates 21 and 22 in the transverse and vertical direction, but remains displaceable in the longitudinal direction of the ski. This displacement in the longitudinal direction is important in flexing the ski. Since the base plate 5 has a more or less large vertical distance from the neutral bending zone of the ski, occur during flexing movements of the ski inevitably Relativverschiebungen in the longitudinal direction of the ski between the base plate 5 and the base plates 21 and 22, in particular, the relative movements between the rear base plate 22 and the base plate 5 are relatively large, because the region of the rear base plate 22 has a relatively large distance from the bearing part 7, which is held immovably by the leaf spring 25 and resting on the top of the ski hand lever 24.
  • Thus, as soon as the bearing part 7 has been adjusted by means of the hand lever 24 in its rear in the ski longitudinal position, the base plate 5 takes its about the transverse axis 27 relative to the ski 20 upwardly pivotable, ie liftable from the ski upper side, as he is desired when touring. After taking off the base plate 5 from the top of the ski, a support bracket 29 from the in Fig. 6 shown non-use position by pivoting clockwise about 90 ° or 180 ° clockwise in a first or second latched position of use are pivoted. In the first position of use, the heel-side end of the base plate 5 is supported in a predetermined by the length of the long leg 29 'of the support bracket 29 distance from the top of the rear base plate. This is particularly advantageous if you want to overcome slopes with great steepness while touring. In the second position of use, ie when the support bracket 29 from the non-use position of Fig. 6 is pivoted clockwise by 180 °, the heel-side end of the base plate opposite the top of the rear base plate 22 and the ski top side is supported in a predetermined by the length of the short leg 29 '' of the support bracket 29 distance. This setting is selected if you want to overcome comparatively flat gradients when touring.
  • Because when touring, i. at relatively pivotable to the ski 20 base plate 5, the bearing part 7 takes its rear in the ski longitudinal position is readily ensured that the center of gravity of the ski 20 in the longitudinal direction of the transverse axis 27 to which the base plate 5 pivots on the bearing part 7, and the ski tip always looking to sink downwards when the skier lifts the foot and thus the respective ski. The mentioned center of gravity of the ski is particularly advantageous in switchbacks or similar maneuvers.
  • Optionally, 22 recesses may be arranged on the upper side of the rear base plate, in which the support bracket 29 when placed on the base plate 22 einenkbar is. This gives the patch with the support bracket 29 on the base plate 22 base plate 5 increased stability in Skiquerrichtung.
  • The front sole holder assembly 2 is fastened together with the base plate 5 by the transverse axis 27 on the bearing part 7, wherein a stationary relative to the base plate 5 stationary mounting of the housing of the front sole holder assembly 2 is ensured by a positive connection between the housing of the sole holder assembly 2 and the front end of the base plate 5 , When a ski boot is inserted into the ski binding 1, the front sole end of the ski boot is held in place by the sole holders 30 of the front sole holder assembly 2, the sole holders 30 laterally encompassing the front sole end. Ski boots for downhill skiing have standardized thicknesses, so that by adjusting the shape of the sole holder 30 easily a vertically backlash-free bracket can be guaranteed. The conditions are different with touring ski boots. There, the sole thicknesses can be very different compared to shoes for downhill skiing. Therefore, the front sole holder assembly 2 is combined with a vertically adjustable support assembly 31. This has a carriage 32 which is guided with lateral guide elements 33 on lateral guide webs 34 of the base plate 5 slidably. The guide webs 34 are arranged obliquely to the plane of the base plate 5, so that the carriage 32 is displaced in longitudinal direction in the direction of the guide webs 34 relative to the base plate 5 in the vertical direction. The position of the carriage 32 on the guide webs 34 is adjustable by means of a set screw 35 whose head is mounted on the bearing part 7 axially and radially, and the threaded portion is screwed into a nut 36 which is supported on the carriage 32 radially and axially with wobble.
  • On the upper side of the carriage 32, a transversely displaceable slide plate 37 is arranged, which is tensioned by a helical compression spring 38 in a central position. Preferably, the slide plate 37 is guided on the carriage 32 on a curved path, the center of which falls into the heel area of the ski boot. By appropriate selection of the materials can be readily ensured that the slide plate 37 is easily slidable on the carriage 32. Thus, the front end of the ski boot sole relative to the front sole holder assembly 2 is also supported with smooth mobility in the transverse direction, as is desirable for a good release function of the front sole holder assembly 2. This smooth movement is also then guaranteed if the bottom of the shoe sole should have a slip-resistant rubber profile.
  • The according to Fig. 5 heel holder assembly 3 combined with a ski brake assembly is slidably mounted on the base plate 5 in the longitudinal direction. For this purpose, 5 side guide webs 39 are arranged on the base plate, which cooperate positively with guide elements 40, ie the heel holder assembly 3 is held without play on the guide webs 39 in vertical and sideways direction. The holder of the heel holder assembly 3 in the longitudinal direction of the base plate 5 by means of an adjusting screw 41 which is rotatably mounted within a housing part of the heel holder assembly 3 and is tensioned by a starting spring 42 against a housing-fixed stop 43. The adjusting screw 41 has a helical outer threaded portion whose threaded ridge engages in transverse slots of a toothed belt 44 which is arranged immovably on the upper side of the base plate 5 below the sliding in the guide webs 39 housing the heel holder assembly 3. By turning adjustment of the adjusting screw 41, the adjusting screw 41 is moved together with the heel holder assembly 3 on the toothed belt 44 and thus in the longitudinal direction of the base plate 5. Accordingly, the heel holder assembly 3 can be positioned in adaptation to the respective length of the ski boot sole. In this case, the heel holder assembly 3 remains displaceable relative to the clamping force of the trained as a helical compression spring spring 42 so that the ski boot sole can be clamped clearance in the sole longitudinal direction, such that the starting spring 42 the heel-side sole holder 45 in a basically known manner resiliently in contact with the rear Sole end stops.
  • As in particular the FIGS. 7 and 8 on the one hand and the FIGS. 9 and 10 can be removed on the other hand, the hand lever 24 may be arranged in the ski longitudinal direction in front of or behind the bearing part 7. When arranged behind the bearing part 7 a corresponding recess 46 must be present in the base plate 5 in order to accommodate the hand lever 24 on the ski top side or on the top of the front base plate 21 pivotally adjustable.
