The Rubik's Cube World Record

When Erno Rubik invented the cube in 1974, he had no idea if his new puzzle could actually be solved. In fact, it took him over a month to solve his own cube.

Fast forward to the present day and the time to beat is an unbelievable 4.69 seconds! That amazing time was achieved by Patrick Ponce of the USA. Unsurprisingly, robots are even faster, easily beating Ponce's World Record. A robot solved the Rubik’s Cube in 0.637 seconds! Speed cubes are becoming lighter, slicker, faster – who knows what the next Rubik’s Cube World Record will be?

The Best Speed Cube Yet?

The Best Speed Cube Yet?

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

Speed cubes 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!

Famous Cubers

Pop star Justin Bieber can solve the Rubik’s Cube in 83 seconds. Actor Will Smith is faster, with a time of 55 seconds. In fact, he’s even quicker than the cube’s inventor Erno Rubik – who solves is own puzzle in 60 seconds. What’s your best time?

Try our new speed cube and see how fast you can solve the cube.

Just when you thought it couldn't get tougher… how about unscrambling the Rubik’s Cube with your feet… or even blindfolded? The possibilities are endless!

Finger Tricks with Rubik’s Cube

What’s the best way to solve the Rubik’s Cube even faster? Finger tricks!

Finger tricks involve a series of moves that you can complete using one fluid hand movement.

By using just your fingers instead of your hand, you save loads of time as you don't need to re-grip your cube between each move.

Repeating a series of moves over and over again helps your fingers get used to the moves, becoming faster and faster. Best of all, you can practice on the bus, while you’re watching video clips… anywhere!  

You’ll find some great examples of Finger Trick videos on YouTube – take a look at Alexander Lau’s introduction video for some fantastic tips.

Customise Your Cube

No two speed cubes are the same! Customise yours to make it absolutely right for you.

You can adjust the tension of your speed cube so that it moves easily and you’re in control. Read our Cube Customisation guide to see how to change springs and tension – and how to apply cube lube.

Using cube lube keeps your Rubik’s Cube turning smoothly and quickly for maximum speed.

We recommend that you apply Rubik’s Lube after you have started using your Rubik’s cube, allowing your cube’s mechanics to get used to working first. Rubik’s Lube uses our own unique formula, maximising your cube’s potential and helping you to achieve faster and faster times. Why settle for an inferior lube? Make your speed cube the quickest it can be! 

The Nations Cup

In July 2017, the first ever Nations Cup contest was held. 72 teams from 42 countries competed for The Nations Cup.

Throughout the 35-year history of competitive speedcubing, entrants have solved the iconic puzzle alone, but the new Rubik’s Nations Cup format saw teams of three complete the Rubik’s Cube in relay.  

In teams of three, the members solved one 3x3x3 cube one after the other. The winning team was the team with the best combined score.  

Germany won this year's competition – being crowned the fastest cubing country in the world!

The team winners were:

  Sebastian Weyer

  Philipp Weyer

  Cornelius Dieckmann
