The new Dyson Omni-glide in Malaysia is a new cordless vacuum that sports a unique redesigned linear in-line form factor somewhat akin to a broom and a special cleaning Omni-glide cleaning attachment that makes it absolutely ideal for the close quarters and low height furniture typically festooning homes in Malaysia.
Cleaning is an onerous chore that’s become all the more important of late seeing as we’re spending most of our time indoors at home but Dyson’s latest offering aims to make it a cinch.
At first glance, the Dyson Omni-glide looks like a very high tech looking broom and the resemblance is intentional as all the components have been slimmed down and aligned in a row to make it one of their lightest and slimmest vacuums ever made at 1.9kg. It’s light enough to wield one-handed and the extension wand lets you use it comfortably at waist height or up-close in a very compact form factor.
It’s even easier to use one-handed than the prior Digital Slim vacuum and it retains Dyson’s vaunted Hyperdymium digital motor that can spin at 105,000rpm and 98,000G of centrifugal force for exceptional suction power that allows it to suck up even tiny motes of dust for a pristine floor.
The Dyson Omni-glide also has the same high performance 5-stage HEPA grade filtration system as its brethren that can capture particles as small as 0.3 microns and up to 99.99% of the particles it encounters, allowing it to effectively capture not only dust but challengingly small debris like pollen and shed skin with all of that captured crud plonked into the front-mounted dust receptacle for easy cleaning and disposal.
Where it truly impresses is its uniquely designed omnidirectional cleaner head that can spin on a dime with 360-degree manoeuvrability. This nimbleness is on account of a series of specially engineered rollers and bearings in the omnidirectional cleaner head attachment allows you to literally glide it across the floor as if it was on roller skates, which it is, in a way.
The cleaner head is so nimble that it can move around corners and chair legs, vacuum all the way up to the edges of a wall and it can continue performing even when working entirely flat on the ground such as when cleaning under a bed or closet. It also changes the traditional trigger setup for a button to start it and stop it, which also makes it easier to use as you needn’t have to keep the trigger down for it to work.
Primarily designed for cleaning the hard floors typical to homes in Malaysia, the Dyson Omni-glide is intended for daily touch-ups with the ability to provide 20 minutes of powerful cleaning per charge.
