If they are the same as previous years, it has integrated chain tensioners, there is a small hole underneath each drop out. It is at a weird angle, inside the hole is a small allen headed grub screw, just pop a small key in there and turn it and it will adjust.

below is a pic where the bolt comes out, so you need to go under the frame to access the bolt head.
