Viberg lasts are not based on nor do they have anything to do with U.K sizing. Would you say Wolverine 1000 Mile boots are U.K. sizing? No, of course not. But most people go one size to a full size down in the 1000 Mile boots. Although recommendations may be made using UK sizing as a reference, it would be the same thing as using Alden or Red Wing shoes/boots as a reference.
So, the 2030 fits pretty much the same as the barrie and trubalance. I think it is actually closer to the barrie last bc the trubalance can be a bit more blobby. Again, bc the Viberg lasts are not based on UK sizing I don't think your logic quite follows.
Now, I will say it is narrow compared to the 110 last or some other of the more full Viberg lasts.
