SL-R or Legacy-R

I was looking for an all mountain/freeride board for a couple of weeks and right now I just saw that I can get the legacy-r or the sl-r (never summer) for 350$. So I am 6.00feet, 190 pounds and wear size 12 boots. Which one would be better and in what size should I get it? (I will mainly just freeride with that board.) Ty.

With a size 12 boot like I have I went with the Legacy bc its essentially the same thing as the SL just the Legacy is a mid-wide board so less heel/toe drag. And either a 159-161

You can fit size 12 boots on a SL 161 just fine unless you have a very narrow canteen stance. Don't get the extra width if you don't need it.

Ok so from what I did understand is that 1 guy says that size 12 is better on legacy. Other says that it can fit well too on sl and a third guy that says the graphics on the legacy are better. I just want to know with my stats which board will be best for me...?

You could probably get away with a size 12 on a SL-R as long as you went no shorter than 161. It has 25.5cm waist..a buddy of mine wears size 13 Rulers(that are supposed to be shrunk down to near size 12's) on a board thats 25.9cm and has some overhang but not too bad...

Getting a legacy-R would allow you to get a shorter size and still fit.

Honestly at 190 you can get around a 158ish if you wanted...in which case legacy.

I wouldn't bother going shorter than 161. Just got my 161 SL-R and it handles like a 155, but carves and bombs like a 161. Just no need to go down that notch in effective edge to gain maneuverability, it's plenty quick to turn and spin. Nice to have the extra speed and float as well as more edge when you hit ice.

I'm only a size 10 boot, but from eyeballing my setup, I'd say you shouldn't have a problem with a size 12.
