The new Triflex HX2: The most powerful vacuum cleaner* from Miele

Gütersloh/Berlin, August 31, 2022 No. 069/2022
  • 60% more power compared with previous model
  • Patented 3-in-1 design for greatest flexibility

Cordless vacuum cleaning is practical and effective – providing that suction, battery power and user convenience align. The positive feedback reflected this when Miele launched the Triflex HX1, its first cordless handstick, in 2019. Now, the second generation of this compact allrounder from Miele's Bielefeld plant, the Triflex HX2, brings together the unique flexibility of its predecessor with further increased suction power and improved user convenience. Following a technical and optical facelift, the Triflex HX1 will remain in the range as a new entry-line model. The market launch of the two-model series was already in April, now the trade fair premiere follows at the IFA.

Whether 'regular' vacuum cleaner or handstick for difficult-to-access places: Like its predecessor, the Triflex HX2 is a veritable allrounder. Thanks to the patented 3-in-1 design, the PowerUnit, consisting of a motor assembly, a rechargeable battery, and a dust box, can be reconfigured in just a few seconds. If the PowerUnit is fitted at the top, the unit lends itself to vacuuming under furniture or along the ceiling. When fitted close to the floor, the centre of gravity shifts, providing the perfect balance for vacuuming large areas without experiencing fatigue. In this configuration, the Triflex can also stand upright - unsupported - which is practical for short breaks in work when, for example, the phone rings or food must be removed from the hob. In solo mode, the PowerUnit is ideal for removing crumbs from the breakfast table or cleaning the car. New is the accessory holder with which the upholstery nozzle, the crevice nozzle and the dusting brush are held securely on the suction tube and are ready for use at a moment's notice.

The clearly improved cleaning performance of the Triflex HX2 is above all attributable to the new Digital Efficiency motor with its 60% increased performance, developed and produced at Miele's Euskirchen plant (Technology Center Drives). The first-class cleaning performance of the Triflex HX2 results from the interplay of the new motor, the proven and particularly effective mono-cyclone design (Vortex Technology) and the high-performance Multi Floor XXL electrobrush. The rotating brush linked with its intelligent detection of floor coverings which reduces rotational speed on hard floors saves energy and prolongs battery charge. This intelligence will also encompass the motor on the Triflex HX2. Motor power is increased or reduced depending on the type of flooring. In addition, depending on the model, the electrobrush with its LED headlight (BrilliantLight) sheds light in even the darkest corners, leaving not a speck of dust undetected.

The necessary power comes from a lithium-ion battery from the German premium manufacturer Varta and comprises seven high-performance cells. Consequently, the Triflex achieves a battery life of up to 60 minutes which, depending on the model, can be extended to as much as 120 minutes using the second rechargeable battery provided as standard.

Highly efficient HEPA filtration and hygienic cleaning

The Triflex HX2 models equipped with a HEPA** lifetime filter retain 99.999%*** of all particles and even reliably filter out allergens. Convenient filter cleaning in-between times is assured by the new ComfortClean function: Just a few turns of the filter lid is sufficient to shake dirt particles into the container. This ensures that the high-level suction power of the unit remains constant. For more thorough, manual cleaning of the fine dust filter, required only every three months, the filter can be removed from the unit at the flick of a wrist. When emptying the dust container, dust is released at the touch of a button without any physical contact with its contents (Twist2open).

The Triflex HX2 is available in four elegant colours, each combined with subdued colour elements in rose gold and a crystal grey dustbox. Even prior to the market launch, the Triflex HX2 was awarded the coveted Red Dot Product Design Award for its innovative 3-in-1 design.

The Triflex HX1 Facelift features the ComfortClean function with immediate effect and is available in new colour schemes – and will remain in the range as an entry-line model at a reduced price despite all these upgrades. All models with their features and colours are covered in the following overview.
