Safety Binding for a Snowboard
The invention relates to a safety binding (1) for a snowboard, particularly a safety binding to be attached in pairs to a snowboard. The invention solves the problem of reducing force peaks on the lower extremities of the athlete, which, for example, in the event of a fall exceed a force value which can be set, and in this event also enabling a three-dimensional rotation of the lower extremities. This is achieved in that a lower binding part (2), which can be fixed to the snowboard, and an upper binding part (3), which can be fixed to the shoe, are disposed on mutually facing support surfaces in a sliding manner, wherein the support surfaces are designed as the surface elements of two spherical caps, the common center of curvature of which is located above the lower binding part.; The safety binding comprises at least one elastic connecting element (5), which is engaged in both binding parts and dimensioned such that it generates a physiologically allowed restoring force during the deformation thereof as a result of a displacement of the upper binding part out the normal position.
