Getting Started

So, you're just getting started on your speed cubing journey. Let's walk through a few things and guide you into making the best decision. We'll talk you through magnets, lubes and basic essentials to get you started.

First things first, let's go through a few things you need to know before buying your first speed cube.


There's a few options when it comes to magnets, but what do they all mean?
Let's find out...


Non-magnetic cubes have absolutely no magnets hidden inside them. This means that layers must align at the hands of the cuber.

Magnetic cubes have strong magnets hidden in the edge pieces and the corner pieces which makes aligning layers super easy. Most cubers these days are magnetic.

Maglev cubes feature magnets inside the edges and corners but also have more magnets under the center caps. Most older cubes used a spring to keep tension, newer (maglev) cubes use 2 repelling magnets to create tension.

Ball-core cubes are often magnetic (as before) and also maglev. They also feature magnets at the base of the corners which attract (or repel) from magnets surrounding the core of the cube. Often maglev and ballcore cubes are ultra fast and responsive making them feel really good to new cubers but to an experienced cuber they are uncontrollable. Speed is not always a good thing when it comes to speedsolving.
