This guy is sort of entertaining. Not gixxerbill entertaining. But like "try to get the ball on a string into the cup on a stick" entertaining.

I would think you'd have to change your body position to navigate off them at bit to switch sides in a chicane, that would be a consequence. I agree with you that I should try them instead of contemplating here online, but elaborate more on the gimmicks please...

They aren't sticky, and don't hinder your movement. They just give you a better texture for when you need the grip.

I don't slide on the seat when moving side to side anyhow; use your ankles to get off the seat a bit.

Neither do I, I tend to "stand" on the pegs when shifting weight.
I guess I'll never know until I try them.
