Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9720604A1] A shock absorbing device (2, 40) for a ski (1) or the like, including two parallel spaced transmission rods (20, 21, 45, 46); at least one fixed connecting means (22, 43) for rigidly connecting the first ends (20a, 21a) of the two rods to the ski; and at least one housing (23, 23a, 23b, 42) rigidly connectable to the ski (1) at a certain distance (D) from the fixed connecting means (22, 43). Said housing has an opening (231a, 231b) engaged by an insertable portion (20b, 21b) of each rod, and at least one cavity (230, 230a, 230b) containing a visco-elastic material in contact with the longitudinal sliding surface over at least part of the length (l) of the portion of each rod that is inserted into the cavity. Said material is shear-stressed when each rod portion moves within the cavity. The device is useful for absorbing both bending and twisting strains in the parts of the ski that are most exposed to such forces.
