I don't have specific weights for the skates, but I'm pretty sure highs are the heaviest, FRs being slightly lighter, and Trix being much lighter (nearly half the weight of highs).

Weight isn't as important as you might think though. Highs are a very good all-around skate, and well suited for slalom, but they're also notoriously heavy. Some people view this as a good thing, as it develops leg strength for when you do switch to a high-end carbon fiber skate.

Twisters are decent skates as well, but probably not as well suited for slalom as highs/trix. They might be the best option if they fit your feet, but that doesn't seem to be an option for you. Another option you might want to look into are Powerslide S4s or EVOs.
