Speed Lube is a popular lubricant option among speed cubers who are looking to achieve a longer-lasting and specific feel.
Note: Not recommended for cubers inexperienced with puzzle maintenance and setup.
Cosmic lube is far easier to apply and is recommended until you are comfortable with completely disassembling and re-assembling your puzzle.
How it works:
Speed Lube is offered in 8 different weights, each "weight" being a different viscosity or "thickness".
The larger the number, the thicker or more viscous the lubricant. This will in turn create a smoother, more controllable feel.
We find that many cubers will mix different Speed Lubes. A common example would be a higher weight on the core and a lower weight on the pieces to create a quick, smooth feel.
Recommended for: All puzzles (especially big cubes)
