Title: Device for receiving a foot or a boot on a gliding apparatus

Abstract: A device for receiving a foot or a boot on a gliding apparatus, the receiving device including a base plate that extends along a longitudinal direction, from a rear end to a front end, as well as a rear support element, the rear support element being articulated with respect to the base plate, in the area of the rear end, in order to be capable of being folded, selectively, towards the base plate or deployed rearwardly. The receiving device includes an abutment that limits the deployment of the rear support element with respect to the base plate. The abutment is fixed to the base plate, the abutment has a self-supporting structure, and the abutment limits the deployment of the rear support element by acting along the longitudinal direction (L). The abutment is transversely flexible in order to assume the shape of the rear support element when the latter is deployed rearward.
