Default Union Force sizing

Hey Guys,

I am thinking about trying out the union forces, but I have read conflicting things on which size I should get.

I wear a size 10 Ride Crew BOA boot, so would a m/l or l/xl be best for me? Also, is there a big difference between the Union Forces and the Rome 390s for freeriding?

For freeriding, I'd go with the Forces because the 390's are more for freestyle.

thanks guys! I will try to get the forces, but I will have to sell 390s first.

I wear a 9.5 boot and ride the m/l in the Forces. I tried the l/xl and it's definitely too big- way too much space on the sides. I set in the toe ramp in the middle position and it works good for me. If you're a 10 I'd definitely say try both. You can always exchange for online purchases.

This is a tough call. Some size 10 boots have a much smaller outer profile (like mine) than others so a 10 in one model will fit the m/l while a 10 in another model wont. You should try them out. Take ur boots into a store that sells them if you can and have the shop tech adjust them...even if you dont buy them from them.

Why don't you take your boot into your local shop and see for yourself?

Agreed

FWIW, I wear a size 10 32 Focus Boa and the M/L Union Forces are fine with the ramp all the way out. I tried them on before I bought so I suggest you do the same

IF that's true, then you get a pass...lol. Anyways, I tried on the Ride Focus boa last season. It's not a low profile boot, so you should go with the L/XL.
