The Best Speed Cube Yet?

Speedcubing needs quick fingers and an even faster brain. Plus, of course, the right tools.

Speedcubes are different to regular Rubik’s cubes. They look the same – but a speed cube is lighter and easier to turn, making it faster to use. If you want to solve the Rubik’s Cube in your fastest possible time, then a speed cube is for you. It’ll take you to the next level of speedcubing – and introduce you to a new dimension of fun!
