They have the yellow rubber cushions in them. The actions aren't click actions, they are showing 1 thread. I am fairly certain I am going to run out of adjustment on Friday when I take them out for a spin, and I've already ordered softer urethanes (grey). I was already suspicious it was the firmness of these cushions making it hard to feel the adjustment.

I'm glad I read somewhere these were hard to get undone the first time, I don't know who does them up at the roll-line factory, but I'm not arm wrestling with them anytime soon! I played around with them for another hour this morning, as they are loosening up a bit, I think I am starting to feel where that point is. You can feel it get a bit harder, and then you can literally see the truck start tilting. Pretty cool to watch actually.

These are the best things I've ever owned, before this I had a pair of crazy's which I destroyed in a couple of months, so it's been a huge learning curve reading up on just how adjustable a good pair of skates can be, but with that adjustment comes slight trepidation on getting it wrong!
