1. Lubricant

Finally, we can conclusively say that lubricant is one of the most, if not the most, important speed cube accessory that we recommend to every single speed cuber and twisty puzzle solver. Lubricants do a range of important things for speed cubes, including

  • Extending the lifespan of your speed cube by reducing friction where pieces contact each other internally
  • Changing the turn speed of a puzzle (to slow down or speed up)
  • Changing the feel of a puzzle (gummy, smooth)
  • Reducing internal spring noise

We offer lubricant in a number of sizes, bundles, and of different properties to fit every use case imaginable.
