My issue was seldom with the toe strap. It almost never randomly tightened and when it falls down I simply push it back in place when I clear the snow. All one motion. I had most of the issue with the upper rachet tightening and it had nothing to do with how I moved while skating. If that issue happens with this years straps/rachets then it would be the same for the both style straps. I will say that the single strap is more comfortable then the new type. The only reason I got the SE over the AT was because it is more flexible.
By the way, comparing stiffness ratings between companies is not accurate. Every company has their own scale and what is considered soft/hard will vary a good bit company to company.
