Default Burton Ambush Vs Rampant, please read.

I am looking to buy my boots really soon , and I need some advice on which ones to go with due to my type of riding.

I ride All Mountain - and I slowly want to get into park/jumping. Please help me decide...
My options:
2012 Burton Rampant
Flex rating: 4
Traditional Laces
Lightest boot they have
2012 Burton Ambush
Flex rating: 5
Non-traditional laces, (the one you pull to tighten)
Second lightest boot they have

I really want to find the right boot to go with my setup, and type of riding. (all mountain, easing my way into park/jumping)

Please help me decide!! Any advice would help!


Board: 2012 Never Summer SL 153
Bindings: 2012 Burton Cartels M
Boots: ???

If this helps:
Height: 5, 6'
Weight: 155
Shoe size: 9

Both boots are really similar. They are extremely lightweight, both have b3 gel cushioning, and are both super light. If you are able to try them on, I would try both of them on since they have different liners and see which one you prefer.

Yeah, they would both be good for all mountain and park/jumping. Generally, a sofer flexing boot is preferred for park, but since they are so close in flex rating, it won't really matter which one you go with. That's why you should try them if you can. One might feel a little better, or you might prefer the traditional laces to the speed lacing.

traditional looks better, compared to speed lacing, but which one is better overall?

The rampant seems to be designed more for park then all mountain. If you ride mostly all mountain, I would go with the ambush, but if you are going to ride more park, I would go with the rampant.

Thanks Knox, that just answered my question. I'm sure I will figure it out.
