Product Description

The GAN 356 Air S Master is now available! This version is the non-magnetized version of the Air SM with a design that prioritizes soft feel and light weight, a new and improved elasticity system (GES V2), and a unique honeycomb design on the pieces. The magnet slots that are present in the Air SM have been removed in the Air S in order to make the puzzle as light as possible, and the standard clear GES V2 nuts are pre-installed.

The Air S feels very fast and quiet right out of the box. Each Air S comes with a set of G-Series GES V2 parts, GAN full bright stickers, a GAN CFOP tutorial pamphlet, and plastic adjusting tool.

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.

Really good

Before I got this cube my times were 3 minutes+. Now I am getting 1 minute solves. Very fast and smooth.

One of the best!

I've had this cube for six months now and have been very surprised by it. The feel is extremely smooth and soft and pretty fast, even though I've lubed it with compound X.

I've settled on clear nuts which give the cube stability without making it feel flimsy and lubing the core with weight 5, the tracks with silk and compound X and the pieces with a little dnm-37 has made it the best non-magnetic cube I've ever had.
This makes the cube a bit slower and softer without having any drag on the pieces and I haven't experienced locking up, popping or corner twisting ever since I set this up.Corner cutting is over 45 when lubed and tensioned and reverse cuts go over one cubie.

All in all I feel this cube is one of the best cubes out there and I'm able to get my average on it even though I use a Gans UM/GTS 2M as my main.
Definitely buy it if you can, great cube at an ok price.

Great cube really light

I like the magnetic one better but I’m currently using this as my oh main this cube is very light It’s very great for one handed solves or if you like lighter cubes

Good cube, some problems

This cube is a very smooth cube right out of the box but a little harsh before changing the GES nuts and tensioning. But for some reason over-lubing this cube is SUPER easy. Aside from that I do experience minor catches which can be annoying. If you have the extra money to spend on the SM, Get it instead. Good cube overall.

Definitely better than a regular Gans

I haven't gotten a Gans cube since the 356 came out and comparing them or any cube for that matter.. the air S is EXTREMELY light
OOTB: Really tight and sandy. Although it was dry it still moved really quick almost as if it was lubed. Did not corner cut 45 which isn't really that big a deal for me.
I only added 1 drop of silk and dnm and the cube was ready to go, I tensioned it with the green tensions which seems to have the best stability (except for white) out of the 3 that came with the cube.
Overall the cube performs really well.. could possibly become my main.

This cube was my first speedcube and ootb it was amazing Imessed around with the springs and i loved the blue ones it was fast yet somewhat controlable if you add lube it is amazing. definently worth the price.

Great cube

So I got this cube to magnetize it and make a cheaper SM and it turned out amazing. After 3 hours of tensioning I settled with yellow springs and I lubed it with lubicle one on the pieces

Great Cube, Shipping Could be Better

I already have experience with a friend's GAN 356 Air S, and the cube is a beauty with a performance that lives up to its price. The only issue I had was that when you add in the additional payment of 3.99$ for the professional Cubicle Lube Service, you don't receive a tracking number and, even though there was a 2-5 day shipping expectation, I didn't receive the tracking number until Day 5. The only thing I find inconvenient is the shipping. Everything else was perfect.

Great cube!

Turns very well, corner cutting is great. I used dnm-37 and silk on this and it worked great.
