The low-profile switches are available in Linear and Clicky. The Linear switches has an actuation point of just 1.2mm with 2.8mm of total travel and an actuation force of just 45g. On the other hand, the Clicky switches’ actuation point is 1.5mm with tactile feedback at the same point, and a full travel of 2.8mm from 50g of actuation force.
