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

15 July 2021

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, manoeuvres 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.

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 head has been engineered to glide in all directions – forwards, backwards and even sideways2. Rearranged into a new in-line format, the machine can lie flat and clean in tight spaces.

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 floor3and 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.

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 99.99% of particles as small as 0.3 microns4, all while expelling cleaner air.

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 manoeuvrable 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.”

The Dyson Omni-glide also comes with three tools – for cleaning up high, down low and anywhere in between. These tools include a mini motorised tool to tackle hair and ground-in dirt from mattresses and upholstery, a worktop tool and a combination tool. The Dyson Omni-glide+ comes with an additional light pipe crevice tool with LED lights to show you where you’re cleaning, even in dark spaces.

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 time5 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.

[1] Tight spaces refer to gaps that are wider than 20.7cm.
[2] Compared to all cordless vacuum cleaners with soft roller cleaner heads and 360° castor wheels, according to GFK sales tracking data.
[3] Lie flat backwards only.
[4] Based on ASTM F1977-04 test standard. Tests performed by third-party independent laboratories under the required test conditions. A standard test method for determining the initial filtration efficiency of a vacuum cleaner system. The filtration efficiency of six particulates of non-continuous diameter is measured by the entire vacuum cleaner system (0.3 micron, 0.5 micron, 0.7 micron, 1.0 micron, 2.0 micron, and 3.0 micron or more), the vacuum cleaner system is placed in a fixed state throughout the test process, by counting the number of upstream particles and downstream particles for analysis and obtaining results. Test environment: air temperature (21.1 ° C ± 2.8 ° C) and humidity range 35% – 55%.
[5] Applies in Eco mode when using a non-motorised tool. Up to 18 minute runtime in eco-mode for full product with motorised tool. Run time may vary depending on usage and floor type.
