  • Patent number: 10117477
    Abstract: A sports boot having a rigid shell base designed to hold the foot of a user, the shell base including a sole and two lateral sides extending from the sole and defining an upper recess therebetween. The boot includes a mechanism for tightening the shell base around the foot of the user, the tightening mechanism including a filiform element for tightening the sides towards one another, the filiform element being tightened by pivoting a lever of the mechanism. The lever is provided to be pivoted in a notch of a rack designed to cover the two sides of the shell base in the tightened configuration and to bend the sides towards the sole under the pivoting action of the lever. The rack extends across the upper recess E2.

  • Patent number: 10112357
    Abstract: Method for manufacturing a hollow object from a material comprising threads mechanically linked to one another to form a first shell. The method comprises a reference step that involves shaping the first shell on a support, a first step, subsequent to the reference step, that involves covering the first shell with a sealed membrane and obtaining a pressure difference on opposite sides of the membrane, the pressure on the side of a surface of the membrane in contact with the first shell being less than the pressure on the side of a free surface of the membrane, and a second step, simultaneous with and/or following the first subsequent step, that involves causing a change of state and/or the bonding of some or all of the threads forming the first shell.

  • Publication number: 20180295939
    Abstract: Flexible shoe extending between rear and front ends, between lateral and medial sides, and between the sole assembly and an upper end of an upper. The upper includes an outer shell including an inner and outer layers, the latter having a foot insertion opening with rear and front divisions, the latter extending between lateral and medial edges. A device tightens the upper by bringing the lateral edge toward the medial edger. The inner layer extends opposite the outer layer and in the area of the front division of the foot insertion opening, between the lateral and medial edges. The inner layer is liquid-impermeable and flexible. When the lateral and medial edges of the outer layer are brought toward one another, the distance between the lateral and medial edges is shorter than the portion of the inner layer in the area of the front division or the foot insertion opening.

  • Patent number: 10010782
    Abstract: The invention relates to a heel-piece for binding a boot on a gliding board that includes a frame including a vertical extension; a body rotatably mounted about the extension; at least two rods supported by the body, extending on respective sides of the vertical extension, the two rods each having a free end to cooperate with a housing in the heel of the boot; and a holding mechanism for maintaining a spacing between the free ends of the rods. The vertical extension supports at least one contact zone fixed in relation to the frame. Each rod cooperates with a respective portion of the contact zone, specific to each rod. The contact zone is arranged such that a rotation of the body about the extension, from a descent configuration, causes an increased spacing between the two rods. The invention also relates to a binding system and a gliding board equipped with such a binding.

  • Patent number: 9795862
    Abstract: A toe-piece for binding a boot to a gliding board, the toe-piece including a frame; two wings each pivotable in relation to the frame about an axis of rotation and supporting a lateral interface surface designed to come into contact with a front portion of the boot when the toe-piece is in a descent configuration. The toe-piece further includes a lateral release mechanism that includes a connecting element connected to the wings such that the displacement of the connecting element causes the rotation of the wings about their axes of rotation; a first elastic member, a first end of which is connected to the connecting member; and a body against which a second end of the first elastic member presses.
