Re: 22 Design Axl bindings damaging front part of sole of boots

Yeah one would think... It sucks as the axle is at a reasonable price point with otherwise solid construction and have heard and read stellar reviews. I understand that flimsy flex plate enables the three pin change but I'd take a solid targa style toe plate (stronger material) and have to open it u...

Re: 22 Design Axl bindings damaging front part of sole of boots

Sorry for your frustration. It really blows to drop a bunch of cash on an expensive hobby only to be in worse shape than when you bought it soon after. I had brought up the issue (read about a few instances on backcountry) before buying axl's from the authorized dealer and he assured me that it does...

Re: 22 Design Axl bindings damaging front part of sole of boots

yeah, i never sanded them or narrowed them. Of all the cases online I have read on this everyone has been a scarpa t1 or race. I got a full refund on the binding as I paid full retail trying to support a local shop but now that i got newer t1s as a replacement I wish I could see if they line up like...

Re: 22 Design Axl bindings damaging front part of sole of boots

Bindings were this years model and the flex plates were the newest version. They updated the flex plate to address this issue and the newer ones carry the 22 designs logo which mine did. This was the first thing I discussed when I contacted them so unfortunately that is not the simple answer

Re: 22 Design Axl bindings damaging front part of sole of boots

For the people who have had this problem: Do you have a certain year boot or a certain size as I'm hypothesizing that the duckbill comes out to far on my boot for this binding which led to the damage?

Re: 22 Design Axl bindings damaging front part of sole of boots

This is my right toe after a half day on my axl's IMG_0880.JPG this my left boot with an incision from the flex plate after a half day on the axl's IMG_0881.JPG IMG_0887 (1).JPG I think I found the answer thanks to my left boot which was less damaged than the right. Whether it is the size, year or w...
