Well, my 4K's arent that heavy. They're actaully pretty light to me. But the 5K's are DAMN heavy. I don't think it has to do with the pump cause that's just an air chamber, but the boot itself is really heavy.

I was thinking of taking the blade holder off my 5K's and putting my chassis and wheels on my 5K, but I would be better off sticking with my 4K's. Lighter, more comfortable, and look better IMO.

You're right. my rbk 4k is not very heavy, but the rbk 5k inline is very heavy, but that model doesn't have the pump, so I am not sure why it is so heavy.

Well, I have the 5K's for ICE so the pump, blade, protection, etc. all add up to making it heavy.

I've never held the 5K for inlines yet.
