                Ring Lube 

                On even layer cubes, the center pieces (under the outer layer) do not rotate, rather a ring on top of the center piece rotates with the face. In order to provide controllability and smoothness, lubing this ring is necessary.

                Magnets 

                Magnets give your puzzle a distinct snap when the layers align as well as providing stability and control.

                • LightThis option will give you the lightest, most subtle magnetic pull between the pieces. Good for one handed solvers.
                • StandardThis is our recommended magnetic strength. It gives the puzzle a moderate magnetic feel.
                • StrongThis is the strongest magnetic strength which ideal who want the most tactility in their cube.

                Gear Compression

                • 1-9Compressing the springs makes the spring travel distance shorter for less flex with a more controllable feel. Compression Level 1 is no compression and Compression Level 9 is max compression. We suggest a compression of 6-7.

                GES

                The GAN Elasticity System is a set of interchangeable springs that changes the feel of your puzzle.

                • YellowThis option is the strongest spring and provides a more snappy, controllable feel.
                • GreenThis option is a bit weaker, but still provides decent controllability.
                • BlueThis GES option is on the weaker side and will make your puzzle fast and less controllable.
                • PurpleThis option is the weakest spring, meaning your puzzle will be extremely fast and uncontrollable.

                  Numerical GES Tension

                  • 0.6 - This is the tightest setting on the numerical GES. It is the most controllable and stable setting.
                  • 0.8 - This is a slightly looser feeling setting, making the puzzle less stable and faster.
                  • 1 - This is the loosest setting on the numerical GES. It is the fastest and least stable option.

                  GMS

                  The GAN Magnetic System is a set of interchangeable magnet capsules that allows you to change the strength of magnet in the puzzle.

                  • ClearThis is the strongest magnetic option and provides very noticeable feedback when you align the layers.
                  • YellowThis option gives a slightly lighter magnetic pull.
                  • GreenThis is the lightest magnetic feel GMS. This option would be best suited for one handed.
                  • NullThis option makes the puzzle non-magnetic.
