A new BIKE ??

I think I am going to buy a new bike, I only ride north shore, dirt jump, parks ... no more trail
I was thinking of these
1=Transition Trail or park
2= Santa cruz Jackall
3= Evil emperial ( or imperial not sure)

could you please help to choose the right one for my style of riding ??

I'm all for transition bikes now, and love the t-o-p. I would go for the t-o-p for sure. Plus if you ever wanted to get back into some trails you would die with the imperial, where if you had the t-o-p you would be flying.
