X-Man Tornado V3 Pioneer Core Upgrade Kit


  • $10.99 USD

Product Description

The X-Man Tornado V3 Core Upgrade Kit is a new, simpler, more robust core from QiYi. It has fewer parts and the magnets are now embedded in the core. 

This one is for the Pioneer (MagLev) Tornado V3.

Important notes: If your cube doesn't have screws, you already have this core. It is intended for people who bought the cube early on and received a core with the older, more fragile design. Due to the different center cap designs between the Flagship and Pioneer versions, this product is NOT compatible with Flagship Tornadoes.

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.

a great replacement!

My core recently snapped while i was trying to lube some pieces, and i needed a replacement pretty fast, so i just got this one. I must say, this core is pretty sturdy. however, my solves have been a bit locky because the pieces have been broken in and the core hadn’t. i definitely suggest this over buying a new pioneer!

H.M. (United States)

It snapped in half when i tried to us on my tornado v3 flagship what a disgrace i am expecting a refund

As stated in bold in the product description, this kit is not compatible with the Flagship.
