Luboss Silicone Oil – Lubricant for your speedcubes
Luboss Medium and Luboss High have been created specifically for speedcubing. The lubricant is suitable for all kinds of cubes and can be used to get different effects. By just using a very small amount of Luboss Medium or High, your cube instantly speeds up and gives it a smoother feeling. The cube may also get quieter. By using a larger amount of silicone in the cube, you can also make your cube slower. This can be useful as today’s cubes can be hard to control due to their speed.
How to lubricate a cube with Luboss Medium/High
The bottle has a small tip to prevent you from accidentally using too much silicone. The easiest way to lubricate the cube is to pour a drop of silicone in a crevice between the pieces, and then scrambling the cube. Modern 3×3 speedcubes tend to have small gaps by the corner pieces, so you won’t need to pull apart the pieces to reach inside. For larger cubes you can pour a drop for each layer. Add more lubricant if needed. If you use a lot of silicone the cube will become slower. The small tip on the bottle makes it easy to lubricate even the smallest pieces inside the core if you wish to be more thorough.
Differences between Medium and High
Both Medium and High use the same type of silicone. The difference is the viscosity, namely how loose and runny it is. As a guideline, heavier silicone (with higher viscosity) is tougher and therefore slower. Lighter silicone (with lower viscosity) will make your cube fast but is also thin and tends to not be too noticeable when it comes to the general feel of the cube. Lower viscosity will also make the lubricant dry out faster. If you’d like a balanced lubricant, we recommend Luboss Medium. Luboss High is slightly heavier and is recommended if you don’t want your cube to be too fast. Both bottles contain 10 ml of silicone oil.
If you love fast cubes then we recommend Luboss Drive. You can also combine both types of silicone to get a bit of both effects combined.
