I gave 4 starts because so far they have been easy to set up, and easy to get into and out of when messing around on the carpet at home. I jumped around with them set up on the board to test them, and they not feel bulky. They feel very stable and comfortable. I like that i'm able to zone them in to where I want them tighter or looser. I got them in mid-March right when all the snow was melting up here (bummer) so I haven't taken them on the hill yet, but once I do I will update.
