Dyson V6 Absolute Dual Head Stick Vacuum

Dyson technology tackles debris big and small. V6 Absolute: Two Dyson engineered cleaner heads. One machine.
Big debris or microscopic dust? Most vacuum cleaners suck up one or the other, leaving either crevices full of dust, or piles of Cheerios snow ploughed to the wall. Dyson’s latest cordless machine reinvents the way you tackle dirt  big and small, ensuring particles of all sizes are sucked up into the bin. The first Dyson cordless with HEPA Filtration to capture allergens and expel cleaner air, it removes 99.97% of particles as small as 0.3 microns. 
The problem:
To pick-up fine dust, a machine needs to have a tight all-round seal to the floor. Keeping this seal means that larger particles, like cereals or rice, pile up in front of the machine. Introduce a gap for large debris and the machine is no longer sealed, the suction drops, and fine dust is left behind. 
The solution: 
Using a soft roller cleaner head, Dyson engineers have radically redesigned the traditional cleaner head so that it tackles both big and small debris. Rather than strips of hard bristles, the Dyson soft roller cleaner head has a full-width roller, covered with a soft nylon material and rows of carbon fibre filaments. 
Large debris are enveloped by the soft material and flung inside the cleaner head, while the antistatic qualities of the carbon fibre filaments gently remove fine dust, without damaging floors. 
James Dyson said, “To engineer a machine that tackles both fine dust and larger debris, like Cheerios, we needed to change the way we pick-up the dirt from the floor. The power of our patented V6 Dyson Digital Motor, combined with our revolutionized cleaner head, means V6 Absolute can tackle dust and that pesky cereal.”
V6 Absolute is also the first cordless machine to include two Dyson engineered cleaner heads: a soft roller cleaner head and a Motorhead. The soft roller cleaner head uses a large roller covered in soft woven nylon, while Motorhead features a second, direct drive motor and stiff nylon bristles for powerful performance on carpets.
