The hotly-anticipated Gans 356 is now available! This futuristic-looking cube appears to be somewhat based on the earlier Gans 357, but it features a more stable core design and various improvements to the pieces.
This cube comes fully stickered, with 1 sets of factory stickers, an instruction manual, and tensioning tool. The entire package comes in a large plastic case.
Limited Edition Versions: The Blue version is limited edition. It comes pre-stickered with full-brights + sky blue and a Metal Nut Driver and Gans Spring Set. These items and stickers may be purchased separately on our site for the other versions.
New Center Caps: The center caps for the Gans 356 have recently been redesigned for even better performance. The version with the new center caps is called the Gans 356S. Currently, all of our existing inventory have the new center caps installed. If you would like to purchase the caps only, please click here.

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.

This was my first 3x3 ever. at that time the cube was awesome. now its not so good. The stickers have become very dull and have chipped and cut under my fingernail (ouch). overall buy lubicle silk with this if you get it.
This cube turns great out of the box. I had to adjust it a little bit to fit my turning style, but overall, a very great cube.
This is a very nice cube!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
this cube I my new main and is so good I would get it if I were you
I got this cube a while ago from a friend for my Bday and I LOVE it. It is buttery smooth with a soft plastic. It is a bit unstable but is is still very good. Catching can happen if you have a rough turning style though the center caps mostly eliminate this. If you want a REALLY good cube, get the gans 356 V2. Overall this is a good cube but would recommend the V2
This cube is buttery smooth, and can corner cut anywhere. The reverse cutting on this cube is absolutely effortless. It is very fast, but still very controllable. This cube doesn't pop at all. The only real gripe I have with this cube is the fact that it catches. A lot.
First off, the feeling. It feels very smooth and quiet feeling,a dn flows really well. The new center caps greatly reduce catches, but due to the cubes floppiness, I still do get a few catches as the pieces move around a lot. Secondly, pops and corner twists. They are both non-existent, so I won't say much here. Thirdly, design flaws. I already said that the cube is very floppy, so, yeah. I can't really think of much. And also, the corner cutting is way beyond what is needed. Past 45 with little to no effort, with 3/4 piece of reverse. And it's still comparable to the YueXiao. Only thing is that it's expensive. I'd say it's not that worth it. But if you can get it, get it! It still remains my main over the YueXiao, as it is more controllable.
Overall grade: A
If you have any Gans DO NOT let it touch sand or anything else small or bumpy or the ridges will wear out. Other than that this cube is really good. I play a lot with my friends and it is really smooth. If you try to pop it to tighten tensions it is hard to.
I really like this cube, it is my main and I have gotten my personal best. The only issue is a few lockups which I have sortof fixed with some modiffications. The lockup issue is almost completely fixed on the v2 though
The gans 356S is by far the fastest cube I have ever felt. As a fast turner, this cube was perfect for me after putting some weight 4 in the core and weight 1 on the pieces. I fell in love with this cube right out of the box and as of yet I have found almost no flaws making it instantly my new main. The only issue I have found with it is that it can sometimes catch on very rare occasion, but loosening the pieces a tiny bit fixed this problem almost entirely. The last thing I wanted to note is the extraordinary corner cutting, as it cuts literally everywhere, so you won't have a problem with lockups. I broke my PB 6 times for the 3 weeks I've had it, so if you like fast, don't refrain from buying this ultimate PB renewer.
