GAN 356 Air SM
The cube has 48 built-in magnets. What does this mean? – The magnets are on the inside of the corner- and edge pieces and are pointed towards the adjacent pieces. This makes it so the pieces will be pulled towards one another when the magnets are close enough. The effect will make the layer snap into correct position after you turn it. The magnets are strong enough to subtly make it easier for you to keep control of the cube while you turn it fast. The magnets in the GAN 356 Air SM aren’t glued by hand like many previous magnetic cubes, this cube has attachments for the magnets so they don’t come loose.
New design inside the cube
The cube has received a new design for the contact surfaces. This is the first time this type of design is used in a cube. GAN calls this design Honeycomb due to its texture. The intention is for the silicon to evenly distribute through the cube when lubricating, giving it a longer life span. It also gives it a new fresh feeling to the cube.
New core with a new elasticity system
GAN has continued developing their system for the core, springs and adjustments. The cube has a new updated core and new GES-springs. The springs included with the Air SM 2019 are called GES V3. With purchase you get four colors of springs, green, yellow, blue and purple, each color representing a specific strength of the springs. By changing the springs to a different color you give the cube a new feeling to it and you can adjust it to suit your desire.
The cube as a whole
The size of the cube is 56 mm which has become a standard for 3×3 speedcubes. Just like the other cubes in the Air-series, it’s very light at 76 grams. Despite all the upgrades, it keeps the GAN-feeling that you’re used to from previous GAN-cubes. Gan 356 Air SM is very resistant to corner twists and is safe from pops. This cube is exceptional when it comes to corner cutting. As a whole this is absolutely one of the best cubes on the market. It is strongly recommended for those who want something more than the usual.
