Product Description

- Celeritas is our first two-part lubricant, featuring Reagent A and Reagent B. Similar to other two-part products such as epoxy resins and silicone curing compounds, Celeritas undergoes a chemical reaction when the two components are mixed, and cannot be packaged as a one-part compound. This lubricant creates a fast and smooth turning experience. 

Reagent A:

  1.  As a special silicone suspension of carbon based monomers. The silicone and special additives prevent the monomers from cross-linking prematurely, until it is mixed with Reagent B. 

Reagent B: 

  1. Activates the chemical reaction in Reagent A, and cross-links all of the monomers to produce a unique gliding feeling in the cube. 
  2. Extends the longevity of this feeling, allowing this gliding feeling to persist throughout common usage of the puzzle. Celeritas is not a simple water-based, or silicone based lubricant. It combines the best features of multiple lubricant features into one product.

How to use:

  1. Add 1-2 drops reagent A into a clean, dry cube which has been cleaned of previous lubricant. Be careful not to add too much, because the initial lubricity of Reagent A is significantly different from the final feeling. Adding too much will result in an overly slow cube. Do many turns to ensure that Reagent A has coated the inner surfaces of the puzzle. This should take about 2 solves.
  2. Add 2-3 drops of Reagent B, and quickly begin to turn the puzzle to allow consistent reaction between the two Reagents.
  3. After step 3, the cube may either be too fast, or too slow. If it is too fast, it is recommended to use a heavy silicone to slow the puzzle down. If it is too slow, we recommend cleaning the puzzle out, and adding less Reagent A.

 Comes with:

  • 3cc bottle of Reagent A
  • 3cc bottle of Reagent B 

Note: Some puzzles react better to Celeritas than others. For big cube use, we recommend using less Reagent A, and more Reagent B.

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.

Works great, if used correctly.

I bought this lubricant during its debut at Nats 2019, and I can honestly say, that this lube is one of the best substances for speeding up your puzzle, if used correctly.

So what do you do to apply you might be asking. Well first, you will receive 2 bottles, Reagent A and Reagent B. Reagent A is the first to apply, the more you put in of this substance, the slower the puzzle might feel when you apply Reagent B. Once you apply the first substance, break it in with about 2-3 solves, I found this number of solves to work the best. After break-in, apply Reagent B, and immediately start turning, you will notice a very big improvement in speed. The pieces will seem to glide on each other, with barely any friction.

Anyways, so my opinion on this lube is great, Chris Tran did an amazing job at making a very interesting lubricant to improve the speed of our puzzles.

Don’t really know. EDIT: ITS MUCH BETTER THAN I THOUGHT I GIVE 5 STARS edit 2: just get mystic

Honestly, I haven’t really seen a huge difference after multiple times attempting to set up my puzzle with it. When I finally did see a difference, I didn’t really like the feel. I personally wish I got mystic or silk instead, especially since they would last me longer that the celeritas will. Maybe I just need more experience setting up puzzles, but I like the basic angstrom setup much more

EDIT:

Okay so I wrote a review previously about it. At the time, I didn’t know that you had to use celeritas on a dry cube, and every single time I tried previously I had usually had dignitas already on the cube, or maybe some other lubes. I really didn’t think it was worth it then. After rereading the instructions in the description, and Cameron R.’s steps (they are basically the same) I ended up truly feeling the the superiority in celeritas, so far I have had it in my rs3m with dignitas and dim-37 added after, and my mgc 5 the same way. So far both setups are incredible. I no longer know whether you should get the 10cc of mystic or silk, I will have to try them both out before tellling not to get you this.

The lube has that signature gliding feeling, which is really nice. My mgc 5 feels godly after setting it up. It fast, controllable, smooth, and almost effortless to turn, even in the second layer.

Also, using the proper celeritas setup in my rs3m (which I previously preferred my valk 3 which I set up with the regular angstrom setup) and now I prefer it over my valk, even though I liked the valk by a wide margin. So now it’s currently my main.

If you aren’t going to be able to try any lube you want, are on a budget, or dint know 100% what lubes you should get, I’ll tell you in order of best uses. 1.Dnm-37, 2. Weight 5(for a the core and peices, but I wouldn’t use it in the peices if you have the angstrom lube bundle as I fell dignitas slows the cube down but feels way better)3. Angstrom lube bundle ( I wouldn’t get either alone as they work extremely well with each other and some dnm) 4. Silk/mystic 5. Celeritas 6. Lubicle Black (replaces weight 5 as a core lube, but this is really the last lube you wanna get.)

Personally not a fan of lubicle speedy, and lubicle 1 as I feel like dnm are way better than them, and lubicle gummy is doodoo (unless you are a weirdo that like gummy
cubes)

Sorry that most of it was off topic and rambling, and that the review itself was only 5 sentences but I just wanted this information to be known.

Edit no.2
I think mystic is way better, as it’s better priced and superior in most situations. In harsher/louder cubes like Gan 11 or wrm 2019 mystic is way better. And then smoother cubes like mgc 5x5 of rs3m 2020 I prefer mystic by a little bit. So overall it’s better then celeritas

Celeritas Got Me A 10.21 Ao5 With An Aolong V1 and Nursed Me Back to Health When I Broke My Leg

Celeritas works wonders in reducing friction between the pieces of any puzzle. This seems to lower the force required to begin a turn. I recommend Celeritas specifically for big cubes, heavier cubes, or cubes with stronger magnets. It feels like the Cubicle's answer to the Valk Power M. Very practical, lovely feel. 5/5

It's an extremely good lube and it makes my cube a lot faster. It came without the holder ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Good lubes, maybe a little lower of price but that’s irrelevant

Good lubes, work well together, I do with the price was a little lower but it is what it is, good lube and reliable

Great.

There are so many great combinations with this it's unreal, paired with mystic, you get so much control, on its own, just a buttery, gliding feel, with gravitas on core+tracks along with DNM-37, utterly smooth and fast. Overall, this lube is great, use the instructions from Camron R down below and it's just amazing.

good lube

I wish that a chart existed for celeritas that showed speed and stuff like the lube pamphlet but for the different amount of drops for celeritas, because it says that a different ratio of A to B is a different feel. Great lube though, really makes a cube fast

Try it, you'll like it

This lube is great but I feel it works best on its own. In my opinion this is not a bad thing. As far as I'm concerned Celeritas A/B is the only lube I'll ever need to buy so it's very cost effective and it makes my 3x3 cubes feel perfect!

The best thing is that you can change the feel of your cube simply by using different amounts of A and B until you find the perfect feel. In my WR M Maglev I like to use 3 drops part A then 3 drops part B. In my Gan 11 M Pro I like to use 2 drops of part A and 3 drops of part B. Part A makes the cube feel smooth and plush and part B adds speed so you can adjust the feel and the speed of your cube very easily without adding other types of lube.

I've tried Mystic, Gravitas, Dignitas, Max Fleet, Max Command, DNM-37, Traxxas, etc. and all kinds of combinations of these. Now I keep it simple and just use Celeritas. Try it, you'll like it!

Edit: This actually works great combined with Mystic! If you like a fast cube try 2 drops part A on a clean cube then 2 drops part B then 2 drops Mystic.

greatest lube

this lube is extremely nice. I usually apply 2 drops of reagent a and 3 drops of reagent b on my 11m duo, then some weight 5 on the tracks and if needed a little dnm on top. blue thing on 3 and spring on the 4th click from the top. is extremely fast stable and controllable. and not only that but sooo smooth and glidy. basically feels glidy like maglev but without the heavier weight of the magnets. thanks thecubicle for making this lube and my main cube even nicer :)

Wow

This lube is amazing. if you follow Cameron R's rules, it turns effortlessly, can be paired with many things and overall is amazing. some combinations include: with mystic: smooth, with either angstrom lubes (or both): quick, but smooth, and with mystic and traxx 10k, controllable and fast.
