PhantomI fit boots for a living and if you walked into the shop I'd ask you a lot more questions.
do you plan on using them for park? all mountain/freeride? will you be touring in them at all/most of the time?
Then it would depend on your height/weight for the flex.
Without knowing your build I could give you some general recommendations like the salomon quest pro 130 which is pretty light (1800 g) with three buckles and a walkable cuff. If you wanted something purely for touring I'd check out the atomic backland (1058 g) but the boot doesn't have din compatible soles, it's tech only.
If you can fill us in with some more details we could probably give you even better recommendations.
