The cube’s sides measure 51 mm, which means that it is slightly larger than the standard 50 mm sides. X-Man Flare 2×2 M is manufactured by QiYi, the same company that manufactures the extremely popular Valk 2 M. In comparison, this one with its 66 grams is lighter than Valk 2 M at 80 grams. It is also noticeably faster, but still stable. The cube gives a slightly “crispy” feeling when turning quickly. The magnetic strength is adjusted by sliding the magnets accessible on the green-red-white corner piece. To get a strong magnetic feeling, slide the two magnets on each side of the piece outwards. For the medium strength, slide one of the magnets outwards and the other inwards, on each side of the piece. To get a weak magnetic feeling, slide both magnets inwards, on each side of the piece. The cube is delivered in a stylish package in which you will find a nice display box to store the cube in when not in use. Additionally, you will find a cube guide and a trading card.
