The asker has declined this answer Comment: yes, I say it is a ski boot in my question. I'm looking for what *part* of the ski boot the sabot is.
2 hrs confidence:
has to be a part of the boot
Explanation: but which part???
You'll find your text (I think) on the Web. Search for "ski", "spoiler", and "sabot" and you'll find a Quechua site. Since Quechua is the Decathlon brand, try ringing or dropping into your local Decathlon shop and interrogating their sales people, possibly with a printout of their site in hand. If they don't know, try head office (get details from your local store), and maybe they can put you in touch with their specialist designers.
As long as you can find out from them WHAT the "sabot" is, it should be easy to then find out how to say it in English, even if they don't know.
Otherwise, try the same with any of the French manufacturers (Rossignol, etc.). In my experience people are pleased and flattered to be able to help, even if your question does not directly concern one of their own products.
