Dyson unveils a brand new way to clean, with the first Omni-directional Fluffy™ cleaner head

Dyson’s Omni-glide™ cordless vacuum all-new compact cord free format engineered for city living delivers a brand new way to clean hard floors. Featuring the first omni-directional Fluffy™ cleaner head that glides in all directions – forwards, backwards, and even sideways – and picks up large debris and fine dust. It floats across floors effortlessly, maneuvers around obstacles and fits into tight spaces1

Chasing fine, floating dust across the living room floor. Reaching under the sofa to capture hidden dust. Catching the last piece of cereal under the kitchen table. Traditional vacuums typically struggle with getting into hard-to-reach spaces and are inflexible to the daily assault course of cleaning obstacles at home.

A brand new way to clean hard floors

The Dyson Omni-glide™ vacuum delivers a brand new way to clean hard floors. It’s the first ever Dyson vacuum cleaner engineered for daily cleaning in city homes, making it the perfect choice for users who like to vacuum often and get into the difficult nooks and crannies. Its omnidirectional Fluffy™ cleaner head2 has been engineered to glide in all directions – forwards, backwards and even sideways. Rearranged into a new in-line format, the machine can lie flat and clean in tight spaces.

Dyson's slimmest, most maneuverable vacuum5

The Dyson Omni-glide™ has also been engineered with an in-line format, with the separation system, the motor, filter and handle all aligned, to enable the machine to lie flat to the floor3 and clean in tight spaces, such as under a sofa or between furniture. This new format is the result of extensive research, including 470 hours of trials with 277 users in their homes across six countries.

Engineered with powerful Dyson technology

With this new format, the engineers had to design a machine that had the core Dyson technologies – including a Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor – concentrated and rearranged in-line but still able to achieve no loss of suction, and spins at up to 105,000rpm. Dyson engineers have also maintained the Dyson five-stage filtration proprietary technology, even in this compact format, which ensures the machine can efficiently suck up fine dust hidden in those hard-to-reach places and capture 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns, all while expelling cleaner air.

Dyson Omnidirectional Fluffy™ cleaner head

The Dyson Omni-glide™ is the first omnidirectional Fluffy™ cleaner head that floats on four 360° stabilising castors which allow it to move effortlessly in all directions and into tight spaces. It is our most maneuverable vacuum due to two core technologies: the omnidirectional fluffy cleaner head and the in-line format. The castors' height and placement were engineered to ensure minimal resistance – whether rolling forwards, backwards or sideways. Sealed ball bearings also allow for a smooth change of direction and minimise build-up of dirt.

“We’re pioneers in the vacuum cleaner industry – we created our cyclone technology, removed the bag, and cut the cord with the introduction of our powerful cord-free machines. Today, we’re introducing a brand new way to clean hard floors with the Dyson Omni-glide™ vacuum,” says James Dyson, Founder and Chief Engineer. “The new omnidirectional Fluffy™ cleaner head is a true testament to our engineering capabilities, and is powered by a Dyson Hyperdymium™ motor, and features two counter-rotating brush bars that spin at the same speed for pick up in both directions.”

Other key features of the Dyson Omni-glide™ include:

  • Easy, smoother bin emptying: the straight, slim bin has an ejection mechanism with a rotary catch to drive out dust in one smooth action. A silicone collar wipes down the mesh shroud to drive out dust without dirtying your hands.
  • Power button: it has a power button instead of the classic trigger, meaning users can swap hands while navigating obstacles, making cleaning that much easier.
  • Easy maintenance: to remove dust build-up, you can wash the bin, filter, brush bar, and any tools without electronic components.
  • Removable, fade-free, energy-dense battery: enables up to 20 minutes run time4. Swapping the battery has been made easy with the click-in structure where owners can remove and replace at the press of a button. *Additional battery and charger are available to buy separately on
  • The wall dock: enables users to lean the machine into the recharging dock, ready for your next clean.
