The Dyson Omni-Glide Packs Quite a Punch

Dyson’s cordless vacuums have been a game-changer for while now and as I’ve mentioned, each new iteration feels like a worthy upgrade. Today, Dyson launched the V15 Detect Total Clean and also the Omni-Glide, one of the company’s ‘slimmest, most maneuverable vacuum for hard floors.’

Powering the Omni-Glide is an omnidirectional soft roller cleaner head that has two motorized soft rollers that pick up large debris and fine particles from your hard floors. What I think makes this a great piece of tech to pick up for your condo, is the articulating neck with four castors, giving you maneuverability to vacuum around obstacles in your home. I’m prone to smashing my Dyson into my chair because while it has a swivel head, it doesn’t get the corners I want it to, with the Omni-Glide, this is no longer an issue it seems.


Where the Dyson V15 Detect Total Clean’s Hyperdymium motor spins at 125,000 RPM, the Omni-Glide spins upwards of 105,000 RPM and boasts a battery life of roughly 20 minutes. And if you like to spot clean as I do, the Omni-Glide quickly transforms into a handheld vacuum cleaner, making your cleanup easier thanks to the versatility the device offers.

I often struggle with clearing my vents because a duster isn’t anywhere as trustworthy as a vacuum, and while my older V model does the job, it isn’t nearly as powerful as the Omni-Glide’s suction capabilities. I think the inclusion of a two-button set-up for power and max suction is better than a trigger the other models use so I’m glad to see it’s as easy as pressing a button to get your house clean.


A new in-line format allows the machine to lay flat on the floor, so it’s easy to clean under low furniture.


Furthermore, the Dyson Omni-Glide uses a five-stage filtration system with ePTFE porous membranes that capture 99.99% of particles down to 0.3 microns. And once you’re done, the entire slim bin is easily disposable into the garbage bin. From there, you can even wash the bin, filter, and soft roller cleaner head with water.

The Dyson Omni-Glide is available in Dyson Demo Stores in Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary and online at DysonCanada for $499.99.
