readimag I have the imperial and ride mid flex bindings and love the setup. If I do need them a little less stiff all I do is undo the laces a touch. I came from some ride orion’s way softer but I always loved stiffer boots I think I want to get some K2 UFO’s for this season.

i got them with a proto/forces set up
if i had to upgrade one area boots are first on the list...just a tad to soft but been in them for just two weeks til this point

but i was just giving my impressions... while i may be riding for many years i am not the one to give advice about the gear...just my feel of the boots correlated with my riding...they are mid stiff or what not..just for me they packed out way to much way to fast...

maybe the mid stiff is the word but in my book it definitely tends to softer side of the spectrum!!! hope that helps

What boots did you have before the ambush?

protik Really appreciate the reply guys. Just a quick one should my partner go for a size 5 or 5.5 Axel or size 5 or 6 Felix (no 5.5 for Felix)?
She measured size 5 on the slidey thingy, surprisingly found Mint (5) to be cramped, fitted Emerald (5.5) and found Ride Sage size 5 to be snug actually.
Thanks in advance!

The ambush and emerald are a 5 on stiffness, so they are right in the middle. Maybe try the axel for the lady and for you, try the moto, which is a 3, the rampant is a 4, and the hail or restricted hail, which are both 4. The rampant and restricted hail have dynolite outsole making them lighter.
My wife also has full speedzone lacing, the convenience and adjustability makes it essential in her view.
