The GAN 251 M is the newest 2x2 speed cube from GAN. This cube features all of the same characteristics of the 249 V2 M like great corner cutting, matte finish, a light/airy feel, and a medium magnetic strength. This small increase in size (2mm), although seemingly insignificant, is definitely noticeable and gives the solver much more control over the puzzle and ultimately leads to a better solving experience!
The Explorer version features an extra set of GES nuts: yellow, blue, and purple.

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.

GAN 251 M
Ootb, this cube is very fast and light. Turning and corner cutting are great; however, the magnets are a little weak. The one big issue is the stickers. After about 100 solves, the stickers began to chip and peel. Though not a huge issue at the moment, TheCubicle does not offer replacement sets which makes this quite inconvenient.
Thanks for your review! Our Valk 2 sticker set should fit the 251 fairly well.
It was soft, silent and had a super cool feel. But the magnets ware too weak for me
If you want a fast, light, controllable 2x2 for less than 27 bucks, this is a good deal. It is high quality an my main. I'm not great at 2x2 (I barely average sub 5), but I know a good cube when I feel one. I think it has mega potential if it is setup well. I average quite a bit faster on this cube than any other 2x2 I've used. I have done thousands of solves, and it never disappoints. I have never had any problems with the cube, I really think it is amazing. It has a nice plastic, and comes with a really nice box and bag. The shipping from thecubicle is also great!
Great service, great product.
I do love the feel of the cube itself it works fine best 2x2 I have tried. Turns smooth and fast while still having strong enough magnets to help control it. Only problem I do have is I didn't get my set of GES nuts that's is said to come with it. So I only can try the default clear that came in it. Other then that disappointment great cube.
Thanks for your review! I see that the wording on the product page may be confusing, but we were trying to say that the Explorer version comes with extra springs while the Standard does not. Nonetheless, I am glad to hear that you are enjoying your cube!
Love the size, love the feel, the noise isn’t too loud, 99.9% my main and overall very good for its price.
I love the GAN 251 M and it is very delightful and is very pleasant I made it as my Main 2x2 cube.
The cube is super fast with a kind of smooth / crispy feeling which most of the 2by2 speedcubers like me love it
I love the balance between speed and magnets
But this cube has some problems the first and the biggest is corner cutting which is a big problem and I have some catches specially in small scarmbles which I want to the fastest turns that I can
And the second problem is corner twisting which is a lot more than gan 249 V2 and also more than valk and wuxia and...
Yes you need to loose the cube for improving corner cut or tight for having less corner twist which you can't have both...
But anyways I think it's a good if you can turn accuratly and your finger tricks are good
Best 2x2 ive ever owned
