I am having the same problem with the T1 and Axl binding. The front of the boots have been torn off. The 22 design guys weren't much help. Binding is set at the stiff setting. Problem is the plastic flex plate doesn't extent towards the front of the boot far enough. Combination of riding a stiff boot, with a stiff binding setting and riding low. Didn't see this problem with T2 boots.
