Yeah… Dyson Malaysia revealed the Dyson Digital Slim vacuum, a lightweight and powerful cord free vacuum engineered to deliver a barefoot clean. The new Dyson Digital Slim vacuum is both 20% smaller and 30% lighter, with no loss of suction, featuring a powerful Dyson Hyperdymium motor, highly efficient cyclones and carbon fibre filaments for fine dust pick up.
Engineered with Asian owners in mind, home trials were conducted to better understand cleaning habits and the ergonomics behind cord free vacuuming. Dyson engineers discovered cleaning is more frequent in Asian homes and that the prevalence of hard floors demands superior fine dust pick up. In developing the Dyson Digital Slim vacuum, Dyson engineers focused on making a lighter machine more suited to frequent cleaning habits, with a shorter wand to complement those with a smaller physique, and with powerful suction to give a barefoot clean.

Dyson engineers also stitched the carbon fibre filament and felt on the cleaner head together, rather than using adhesive, which enabled significant weight-loss. Despite the downsizing, the Dyson Digital Slim vacuum achieves similar pick-up as the V11 cord-free vacuum, picking up large debris and fine dust simultaneously.
The airflow path through the cleaner head was also re-engineered to create a more direct path for the airflow. Smoothing out sharp corners and creating a more direct and even route for the airflow from the floor into the neck of the cleaner head, which means better edge cleaning performance.
A lighter body and smaller wand
While the Dyson V11 cord-free vacuum cleaner’s main body is made of two pieces, the Dyson Digital Slim cord-free vacuum cleaner is one piece, with seals, rivets and the thickness of walls all paired down, to achieve weight reduction. The Dyson Digital Slim wand is 15% shorter and 6.3 mm thinnerv than the Dyson V11 series. Other engineering features in the Dyson Digital Slim vacuum include:
An adapted Dyson Hyperdymium motor
The motor spins up to 120,000rpm, creating powerful suction. Its ceramic shaft is cured at 1,600°C to make it three times harder than steel, yet with half the density.
11 scrolled cyclones
At 100,000g, the 11 scrolled cyclones have been redesigned to fit the machine and ensure they remove more dust and dirt from the airflow. A wider radius at the entry point reduces energy losses, scrolling air in at a less tangential angle to reduce air resistance. As the cyclones narrow, air is accelerated to create the centrifugal forces that capture fine particles.
Maintenance is easier as the machine has been engineered for smoother, easier dirt ejection. The brush bar, clear bin, combined pre/post motor filter, and light-up crevice tool are all washable.
The removable, fade-free, energy-dense battery is made up of five nickel-cobalt-aluminium battery cells that run for up to 40 minutes in eco mode on hard floors, and up to 5 minutes in boost mode. The battery is also swappable, providing up to 80 minutes run time in eco mode.
The Dyson Digital Slim vacuum is available, priced from RM2,599 to RM2,799 at www.dyson.my and Dyson Demo stores at The Gardens Mall and Mid Valley Southkey. Additional battery and charger are available to buy separately on the Dyson website from 2021 onwards. What are you waiting for? Go grab yours now!
