Our Promise to You
All of our products are guaranteed to be free of defects, or we will replace and reship at no cost to you. Please contact us within 4 weeks (28 days) past the delivery date to report any issues with items you have purchased.
Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop". This is when one or more parts of a puzzle pop out without any damage actually being done to any of the pieces. This also occurs from time to time during normal usage. Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.
The corners on 2x2 puzzles should not be twisted as doing so may snap the piece. Damage caused by corner twisting is not considered to be a defect.

I purchased this looking for a cube somewhere in between my Moyu RS3 M 2020 and my Gan 12 Maglev (Chan Edition). I wanted something faster than the RS3 that I could use for practicing finger tricks and algorithms, while using the Gan for timed solves, and I no longer use my Gan. Out of the box, it definitely felt gunky and slow, but it broke in much faster than I had read it would. Now, it has the smoothness of the RS3 M, but blockier and more controllable. The Gan may be a little faster, but it feels more forced, whereas the Ångstrom Valk 3 M feels much more natural and fluid. This is my first cube from the Valk line as well as my first Cubicle Premium cube, and it definitely will not be the last. I'm hooked.
This cube freakin rocks. I’m just getting into cubing again after 5-6 years, I average around 15-16 seconds on 3x3. I understand there’s lots of cubes out there and I’ve definitely tried a few newer GAN and Moyu puzzles. They are definitely worth their price too but man this cube is also just so freaking good. It’s super stable and controllable, yet it can still be super fast when I try to turn faster and the controllability with how it’s lubed has definitely helped me turn more accurately. Corner cutting is on par, cube feels a little blocky and isn’t exactly quiet but I can get over that because of how good it performs.
By far one of my favorite cubes I own was a little heavy on the Angstrom but after wiping a little out and adding some of the new speedy lube has become one if my top 3 go to cubes
Out of the box the cube is quite slow. There's a bit of a sandy feel and it took me about a week to fully break it in and get rid of the sandiness. After that, it was the perfect speed, really controllable, and super smooth. This replaced my GTS3M as my main as it is more controllable. One of the biggest differences between this and the GTS3M is the magnet strength. The Valk's magnet strength is much much lighter. Overall, highly recommend if you enjoy smooth controllable cubes.
Great cube, fits my turning style perfectly
the cube dosent have much of a difference but the cube is perfect for me I get better times than on my XS because of my turning style yes I did change it to my own it is my main and no problems locking up and so controlible and stable and good speed. and I recommend it for anyone
after I messed up my xs I did not know what style to use for this cube or which cube to pick so I went with this one so I changed my style to Lucas etter style. So I recommend it to anyone that likes fast cubes you can slow it down with lubes like gravitas. so I wold give it infinity stars if I could so highly recommend it.
This cube is absolutely insane. I got it as an upgrade to my Little Magic M, and got a sub-10 within a few days! Very smooth, but after a month or two of using, needs to be re-lubed. Magnets are just right for my turning style, and I can get sub-10s a lot more often than with my YLMM. Definitely buy this if you're still using a budget cube, and need an upgrade!
Out of the box they put a lot of lube on it which makes it a bit gummy and slippery to hold on the outside. After a couple days of breaking it in that goes away and it feels really good. The magnets are in my opinion the perfect middle strength: Stronger than the GTS3, weaker than the Cubicle Labs little Magic M and roughly the same strength as my main, the MF3RS2. It doesn't cut corners quite as smoothly as the MF3RS2 but it's also not as "spongey" when turning. It has that perfect middle of the road feel and I'm quickly switching to this cube as my main. The smaller size is great for me as I have smaller hands and I'm finding I get slightly more consistent and better times on this cube than all my others.
