I would say the Ambush, unless you really need the extra stiffness of Imperial. Both the Level 3 liner and the Level 2 footbeds are notable upgrades over the Ruler (even if the footbeds should still be replaced for extensive riding) and so is the ESS shank. The Ambush also has the biggest flex panels, which is significant because Burton does not really do articulating cuffs (except for on the SLX).Which one would be the best choice for the price
anyone have any of them?
That is a pretty sweet set-up and a great deal.Good to know because I just snagged a pair of 2013 Ambush on sale - paid only $65 which is even less than the cheapest Rulers that I have seen.
Planning to pair them with my NS Brothers in Arms Cobra and 13 Genesis bindings. Total cost of the set-up was $600.
You must have been doing something wrong with tightening them or maybe there was an issue with the liners because this is no where near the experience I have had with them. To each his own though.I bought the Ambush last year and although they are very light and the lace system is good I found them extremely soft and the inner Velcro section would sometimes change positions while riding.
Might be my fault for buying them on a whim and not really researching Burton boots. I had heard that Burton made softer boots but this was just ridiculous, might as well ride sorels.
For park only they would be good but if you ride anything else way too soft.
I had 32 Team2s before and loved them.
They will both fit relatively the same as both are Burton. However the Ambush are much more comfortable (to me). The imprint 3 liners in the Ambush are much nicer than the imprint 1 liners in the Moto's. Best way to look at it is that the Ambush is just a much higher end boot compared to the Moto. But the fitment of each should be relatively the same.Can someone please tell me whether Ambush and Moto both have the same fit? If I am a size 11 in Motos.. should I go with the same size for Ambush?
