Eureka's new AirSpeed ONE models weigh less than 10 pounds, but are proven to clean carpets better than the No. 1 selling bagless upright brands. AirSpeed ONE is engineered to reach under furniture, and also offers easy maneuverability around the whole home and convenient, compact storage. At the same time, the lightweight upright is packed with power – including Eureka-exclusive AirSpeed Technology, which uses an efficient air path with limited bends and turns to allow more air to pass through the vacuum for more powerful suction. Plus, an innovative AirSpeed Airflow Control Switch concentrates suction power where it’s needed most – the floor or the tools.
