ROLLER SKATE Application filed December 14, 1928. Serial No. 325,947.
This invention relates to improvements in roller skates and has particular reference to a two wheel skate.
The primary object of the invention resides in a two wheel skate in which the foot rest is pivotally mounted in the skate frame to enable the user to tilt the same forward to engage the ground to obtain a firm purchase by which a forward propelling action may be had without fear of the skate slipping backward.
Another object of the invention is to provide a roller skate having a tiltable foot rest which may be tilted into engagement with the ground at the will of the skater to set up a breaking action to retard the forward momentum of the skate.
A further object is the provision of a roller skate having the above mentioned features, which is simple of construction, easy to operate, and strong and durable for the purpose intended.
With these and other objects in view, the invention resides in certain novel construction and combination and arrangement of parts, the essential features of which are hereinafter fully described, are particularly pointed out in the appended claim, and are illustrated in the accompanying drawing, in which Figure 1 is a side elevational view showing my improved roller skate in use. Figure 2 is a side elevation of my roller skate with parts broken away in section.
Figure 3 is a top plan view of the same.
Figure l is a vertical transverse sectional View on the line H of Figure 3.
Referring to the drawing by reference characters, the numeral 10 designates my improved roller skate in its entirety, which includes a frame 11 which is continuous to provide parallel side rails 12 and end loops 13 which constitute front and rear bumpers. The ends of the side rails are stepped up from the intermediate portion which is disposed in close proximity to the ground to give the frame a low center of gravity, while front and rear wheels 14: and 15 respectively are journalled between the side rails Within the stepped up ends. Although the conventional type of bearings have been shown in the drawing, it will be understood that in practice the wheels will be journalled in ball bearings.
Pivoted mediate the wheels 14 and 15 is a foot rest or pedal 16, the pivot 17 of which is disposed forward of the transverse center so that the ieel end of the foot rest over-balances the toe between the side rails 12 interend. A transverse stop bar 18 bridges the side rails beneath the heel end of the foot rest to normally support the foot rest on a horizontal plane. The toe end of the foot rest 16 has its underside bevelled as at 19 for engagement with the ground when the weight of the skater is placed on the toe end for a purpose to be hereinafter explained.
Attaching straps 20 are carried by the toe and heel ends of the foot rest by which the skate may be securely attached to the foot of a user.
In practice, a pair of skates 10 are attached to the two feet of a user as shown in Figure 1 of the drawing, and in use, one of the skaters feet is tilted forward to cause the toe end of the foot rest to engage the ground to give the skate a firm purchase thereon which will enable the skater to give himself a forward push, the foot rest of the other skate being free of the ground. These two positions are clearly shown in Figure 1 and it will be seen that by alternately engaging the foot rests of the two skates with the ground, the skater may propel himself for ward at a high speed. When suificient speed 8 has been maintained both foot rests may be rocked back free of the ground and the skates allowed to coast. The foot rests may also be used as brakes when it is desired to stop, at which time either or both may be engaged with the ground to drag thereover. The degree of braking action is controlled by the forward pressure applied to the foot rests.
While I have described what I deem to be the most desirable embodiment of my inven- 9 tion, it is obvious that many of the details may be varied without in any way departing from the spirit of my invention, and I therefore do not limit myself to the exact details of construction herein set forth nor to anything less than the whole of my invention limited only by the appended claim.
What is claimed as new is A roller skate comprising a frame, said frame including a continuous outer structure and having wheels journalled therein, a foot rest pivotally mounted in said frame between said wheels, the axis of the pivot being forward of the transverse center of said foot rest so that the heel end overloalances the toe end thereof a stop on said frame in the path of the heel end of said foot rest for preventing backward tilting thereof,
whereby the toe end of saidfoot rest may be tilted forward into engagement with the surface over which said roller skate is adapted to travel, said toe end being beveled for slidable engagement with the ground surface, and said frame including looped bumper portions, at front and rear, outside of both wheels, and attaching means carried by said foot rest for securing said roller skate to the foot of a user.
In testimony whereof I have affixed my signature. I PAUL FEHRE,
