The GAN 356 Air SM has arrived! This highly-anticipated successor to the GAN 356 Air UM features an all-new design that has been optimized for magnetization, with specialized slots for holding the magnets, a new and improved elasticity system (GES V2), and a unique honeycomb design on the pieces. The Air SM feels very fast and quiet right out of the box. Each Air SM comes with a full set of 7 GES V2 spring components, GAN full bright stickers, a GAN CFOP tutorial pamphlet, plastic adjusting tool, and a GAN 356 Air SM VIP card.

The current 3x3 WR Average of 5.97 seconds was set by Feliks Zemdegs using this cube.

Fixes the Gan Air UM
By Jisu Kim on 16 September 2017
Product: GAN 356 Air SM
After solving, lubing, and tensioning (with the GES nuts) the previously released Gan Air UM for two months, I came to the conclusion that a lot of other people had. The magnets were too strong, there were catching issues, and even for an cube enthusiast, the lubing and tensioning experimentation was too tedious (sometimes, even a 15 degree turn on the GES nuts completely changed the tensioning). The Original GAN Air 356 was soft and somewhat tactile, but it seemed like the UM was just a completely different puzzle, at least for me. I was using mainly yellow springs with Weight 3 lube, and DNM-37 with medium tension.

The SM however has changed almost all of these problems. With lighter magnets, and a change in the pieces' design, the cube feels lighter (although it's a couple grams heavier), crunchier (feels more tactile and pleasant compared to the too artificially smooth feeling of the UM), and after tinkering around with the new GES springs and tensions, found a setting for me that allows me to turn as fast as I want with virtually no catching (once I have warmed up). I have my cube at yellow springs, weight 3 on the core, Lubicle Silk and just a drop of dnm 37 on the contact pieces to achieve a fast and tactile cube that is reminiscent of the old Weilong GTS (in terms of tactileness) but keeps the same Gan Air feeling that the UM just seemed to miss.

Some of the problems might be that the puzzle doesn't have as much corner cutting as other puzzles like the Weilong GTS2M, but with the magnets and stability this puzzle provides, I have had no problem with it once I did around a hundred solves to get used to the turning of this the puzzle just looks so pretty...

I got this cube not to long ago (just to let you know It was set up and lubed with lubicle black by the pro shop) and it was very smooth. Corner cutting was past 45 degrees. And the stability was good (it had the blue GES nuts) After all, this cube is very good besides that mine did not come with the card in the picture. I would definitely recommend this cube!!!!! :)

The GAN 356 Air SM
By Jack McNeill on 11 February 2018
Product: GAN 356 Air SM
A great puzzle, to say the least.
But also a very wild ride out of the box that must be controlled. Lubicle Silk on the core and DNM-37 did the job of controlling the cube exellently, and switching the GES nuts from yellow to green vastly improved the cube's overall feel for me. As a whole, the puzzle is a feat of engineering, but not for the faint of heart. Coming from a GuoGuan YueXiao, a great puzzle in its own right, this cube was a bit overwhelming before i found the right setup.
