All of our twisty puzzles & Rubik's Cubes are brand new. Due to the nature of these puzzles they may become loose after the first hour or so of playing/twisting. Don't be alarmed, most puzzles allow you to 'Re-Adjust' them and set them up exactly as you want them. Simply read our "How to adjust your cube" blog for instructions on how to do this.
Please Note: Not all puzzles allow adjusting.

I'm a relative newbie at cubing, and my first 2x2 was the QiYi Valk, which is 51mm and felt a little big to me. I bought the GAN 249 as 49mm sounded like it might be more comfortable. While I like it a lot, I've since found that properly lubing and setting up my Valk has made it more comfortable and useable, and if anything the GAN is perhaps a little small for my hands! It's a lot lighter than the Valk, which may appeal to some, and has a "scratchy" sound and feel compared to the "buttery" Valk. Anyway - it's a great cube – I just think the Valk is better! Also, the matte feel of the fades may not be for everyone. I personally prefer the glossy feel of the Valk and my MoYu cubes.
This is a very controllable puzzle. It has a medium to strong magnetic click. It is certainly much better than the v1 and I can see much pro's using it!
This cube comes perfect out of the box. The turning is slightly bumpy but unlike most cubes this simply adds character to each turn. Although it is a bit small for my liking, its the most fun 2x2 i have ever turned, whitch is why its my main.
