The X-Man Bell Magnetic Pyraminx is created by the same company that made the very popular Qiyi-puzzles. It is no surprise then that this Pyraminx looks the same as the QiYi Pyraminx when you look inside. Because the X-Man Bell builds on one of the previous successful Pyraminx puzzles on the market, the puzzle performs very well in aspects of speed, corner cutting and stability.
What are the magnets for? Usually a Pyraminx is created with holes and pegs to help the stability of the puzzle by locking itself between each turn. Thanks to magnets, this same function is achieved but with reduced friction. The puzzle doesn’t click into position quite as hard which makes it easy and smooth to turn.
Magnetic Pyraminxes have been approved for official competitions.
