Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology in the test: The white Shark among the battery vacuums?

Last updated: 20.07.2022

Still rather unknown in Germany, but already found in many households in the USA and Great Britain:

The innovative hoovers from Shark.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is a brand new cordless vacuum cleaner that has recently hit the market. πŸ™Œ

And it's supposed to be able to do a lot!

  • Unique DuoClean floorhead for hard floors and carpets
  • Innovative anti-hair-wrap technology

The new device promises all this.

So, of course, we wanted to see whether the cordless hoover also delivers what it promises. πŸ€”

We took a close look at the Shark Anti Hair Wrap teat in our test. πŸ‘‡

Can the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology pass our cleaning test?

When we held the Shark IZ300 Anti Hair Wrap Flexology in our hands for the first time, the excitement was naturally high.

After all, the device promises a lot.

But can the cordless hoover pass our endurance test, or are these promises just hot air? πŸ€”

How do we test cordless vacuum cleaners?

To find out how good a cordless vacuum cleaner is, we spread 50 grams each of oat flakes, lentils and sand on different surfaces (hard floors and short- and long-pile carpets). Then we vacuumed the floor with our test device and measured how much dirt the hoover could pick up. In addition, the test device is also used at home. This is the best way to discover how the cordless vacuum cleaner performs in everyday use.

The cleaning test on hard floors

The very first thing the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology has to do is work on hard floors.

In the first test phase, we spread sand, lentils and oat flakes on laminate flooring one after the other.

We then vacuum the test area with the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

And lo and behold? The battery hoover removes 100% of the dirt without any difficulty. πŸš€

You can see the cleaning results of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology on hard floors.

Here is our complete test of the best cordless hoovers for hard floors.

The cleaning test on short carpeting

But how does the Shark cordless vacuum perform on short carpeting?

At this point, cleaning becomes a little more difficult.

But here, too, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology can convince us all along the line. πŸ™Œ

You can see the cleaning results on the short carpet.

Again, the cordless hoover can remove 100% of the oatmeal and lentils in one go. πŸ₯³

Even with finer sand, hardly anything remains in the carpet's fibres.

The cleaning test on long carpets

Now we come to the supreme discipline: cleaning on long carpets.

This is where many cordless hoovers struggle, as our test of the best cordless hoovers for carpets shows.

But not so, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology. πŸ‘‡

The device removes 96 % of the dispersed sand and 100 % of the lentils and oat flakes.

You can see the cleaning results of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology on a long carpet.

There is only one thing left to say: strong performance! πŸ’ͺ

Cleaning in corners and edges

To ensure that your floors are perfectly clean, the cordless vacuum cleaner must also clean corners and edges effortlessly.

As the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is equipped with enough suction power, it is also no problem. πŸ‘‡

You can see how the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology vacuums in corners.

You can see how the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology vacuums in edges.

This cordless vacuum cleaner can easily remove dirt from corners and edges. πŸ™Œ

Cleaning in everyday life

To get a particularly good picture of how the Shark Anti Hair Wrap performs in everyday life, we also used the test device at home for a longer period.

After intensive use, we can say that the cordless vacuum cleaner was convincing in our endurance test and removed all dirt in everyday use without any problems. πŸ₯³

Only the heavyweight makes it a bit unwieldy when vacuuming stairs.

However, we would like to go into this in more detail later.

The design of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology

We were thrilled when we first took the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology out of its packaging. 🀩

Here we would like to tell you why.

Modern design, high-quality craft

The design is particularly modern, and the craft is of high quality.

The similarity to the Dyson devices is unmistakable.

You can see the design of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

All the plug connections of the battery-powered vacuum cleaner are well-made; when plugged together, all the parts fit tightly.

We have nothing to complain about here. πŸ™Œ

With a practical LED display and three buttons

There is an LED display on the handle of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the battery, suction level and floor type (carpet or hard floor).

Info: The Shark Anti Hair Wrap offers a suction mode for carpets and one for hard floors. We would like to go into this in more detail below.

You can see the display of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

Directly below the display are three buttons for operating the cordless vacuum cleaner.

You can easily reach these with your thumb during vacuuming. This makes the hoover easy to operate with one hand. πŸ™Œ

A relatively large dirt bin

A modern cordless hoover today is usually bagless.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is no exception. πŸ₯³

The appliance has a dirt bin located directly behind the motor unit.

We could easily remove it with a button.

You can see the motor unit of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the removed dirt container of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

Info: With 700 ml, the dirt container is quite large.

This allows a lot of dirt to be collected before the dust bin needs to be emptied. πŸ™Œ

How big is the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology?

No matter what your size, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is a universal wrap that can be used by young and old alike.

Particularly practical: You can angle the Flexology suction tube by 360Β°. This means the vacuum cleaner is only 70 cm high.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology cordless vacuum cleaner is seen.

You can see the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology with the suction tube bent.

And this is how big the stick hoover is in detail:

Category Dimensions
Total size as a floor vacuum cleaner 118 cm
Total height folded 69 cm
Length motor unit 40 cm
Height motor unit 20 cm
Brush width 26 cm
Brush length 24 cm
Brush height 8 cm

With an angled Flexology suction tube, you can store the Shark Anti Hair Wrap in a particularly space-saving way.

How heavy is the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology?

Another interesting question is, of course, how much the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology weighs. βš–οΈ

The motor unit of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is weighed.

To do this, we disassembled the battery-powered vacuum cleaner into its parts and weighed them. πŸ‘‡

Category Weight
Total weight floor vacuum cleaner 4,1 kg
Motor unit 1,75 kg
Suction pipe 0,51 kg
Floor nozzle 1,84 kg

With a total weight of over 4.1 kg, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is quite heavy.

Info: The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is even the heaviest device we have had in our test.

But thanks to the floor castors and the good weight distribution, the high weight is no problem when vacuuming floors.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology accessories - What's included?

What accessories are included with the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology? πŸ€”

The scope of delivery is manageable.

You can see the accessories of the Shar Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

With some Dyson devices, there's a lot more to it.

Info: Here, you can find our detailed review of the Dyson V15 Detect, our test winner. πŸ†

Nevertheless, we didn't miss anything in our review of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap cordless vacuum cleaner.

But let's take a closer look at the available accessories together. πŸ‘‡

The DuoClean floorhead for carpets and hard floors

With the DuoClean floorhead, you can clean both hard floors and carpets. πŸ™Œ

You can see the Shark Anti Hair Wrap DuoClean floorhead.

Particularly practical: This innovative floor nozzle is no longer necessary to change the attachments for different floor types (carpet or hard floor).

We would like to take a closer look at the exact technology used here in the next chapter on cleaning features.

The flexible Flexology intake manifold

The flexibility is already in the name here.

The Flexology suction tube of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap cordless vacuum cleaner can be angled up to 360Β°.

You can see the suction tube of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap hoover.

You can see the flexible Flexology suction tube of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap vacuum cleaner.

This not only makes cleaning under furniture particularly easy but also guarantees space-saving storage of the appliance. You can literally store anywhere πŸ™Œ

Info: A wall bracket is not included in the scope of delivery.

However, the flexible wand bends, so you can completely bend the suction tube, which means that it’s easy to store the hoover.

The crevice tool for corners and edges

The Shark DuoClean floorhead can be quickly and easily replaced with the supplied crevice tool.

You can see the crevice tool of the Shark Anti Hair Flexology.

Shark Anti Hair Wrap is seen cleaning the edges of a blanket.

This way, you can also remove dirt from hard-to-reach places. πŸ™Œ

Attention: As the Shark Anti Hair Wrap is quite heavy, our arms tired quite quickly in the test when we wanted to clean the edges of our blanket.

The 2-in-1 upholstery and dust nozzle

The included 2-in-1 upholstery and dust nozzle are suitable for cleaning furniture and sofas.

You can easily remove the bristle attachment for cleaning sensitive surfaces. πŸ™Œ

You can see the 2-in-1 upholstery and dust nozzle of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the upholstery nozzle of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

This bristle brush attachment is especially suitable for converting the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology into a hand vacuum.

Motorised Turbo Brush: Only with True Pet variant

We tested the TruePet version of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology in our home.

Info: We would like to detail the different variants of the cordless hoover below.

This version comes with an additional Turbo Brush for the hand vacuum.

You can see the turbo brush of the True Pet variant of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap cordless vacuum cleaner.

You can see the Anti Hair Wrap technology of the Turbo Brush of the True Pet variant.

Like the main brush, this motorised turbo brush also features Anti-Hair-Wrap technology.

This prevents animal hair from getting caught in the rollers. It’s also a very powerful dusting brush. πŸ‘

Instructions, charging cable and a shoulder bag

In addition to the necessary attachments, which are needed for cleaning, there is a charging cable in the scope of delivery. No need to buy an extra charger! πŸ”Œ

Info: There is also a version of the cordless stick vacuum cleaner with an additional single battery. But more about this later!

In addition, a practical manual in all possible languages is also included in the accessories.

However, we wonder why such a manual is still printed today when it could simply be made available as a PDF. Considering the environment, that would be a lot better... πŸ˜•

The Shark shoulder bag is seen.

And last but not least, there's a Shark shoulder bag on top.

Whether you prefer to use them to store the various Shark attachments or for shopping is up to you πŸ˜†

Our conclusion on the scope of delivery - everything you need is included

When we opened the box of the Shark cordless vacuum cleaner for the first time and took a closer look at the contents, we noticed that there were far fewer accessories than with many other models.

Unlike other cordless vacuums, however, the brush of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is optimised for both hard and carpeted floors.

Therefore, instead of 2 attachments, only one is needed here. We like this solution very much. πŸ™Œ

You can see the instructions for the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

However, we missed a wall mount for storing the unit in our test.

On the other hand, you can store the Shark Anti Hair Wrap in a space-saving way thanks to the Flexology suction tube. So a good solution has also been found here. πŸ‘

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is seen.

Some appliances from other manufacturers also have a special accessory holder to attach important accessories directly to the suction tube and always have them to hand during cleaning.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology also does without it.

In conclusion, however, we think the delivery scope has been designed relatively cleverly. πŸ™Œ

It has everything you need, and you won't have unnecessary attachments and gadgets lying around at home.

The cleaning features in the test - Unique brush roll and more innovations

When it comes to vacuuming, suction power is not everything that counts.

And once again, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology shows this quite clearly.

The appliance convinced us with its particularly innovative floor nozzle, which we have never seen on any other appliance. πŸ₯³

On top of that, there are a few familiar features.

But see for yourself. πŸ‘‡

The DuoClean floorhead with PowerFins and Anti Hair Wrap Technology

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology offers something that no other cordless vacuum cleaner has: A floor nozzle for carpet and hard floor in one πŸ₯³

You can see the floor nozzle off the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology vacuum cleaner.

The manufacturer calls this nozzle the DuoClean floorhead with PowerFins and Anti Hair Wrap Technology. That sounds anything but simple at first. 🀯

Therefore, we first disassembled the floor nozzle in our test to get a more accurate picture. πŸ‘‡

2 castors: For hard floors and carpets

The floor nozzle has two motorised brush rollers: a soft brush roller for hard floors and a harder roller for carpets.

You can see the two brush rollers of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap.

The carpet brush roll is equipped with flexible silicone fins, which Shark calls PowerFins.

You can see the Power Fins of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

This way, you can also remove dirt from the depths of your carpet. πŸ™Œ

The Anti Hair Wrap Technology

A kind of comb is attached directly to the soft roller of the floor nozzle.

This comb prevents hair from getting caught and wrapped around the roller.

You can see the Anti Hair Wrap technology.

In our test, this Anti Hair Wrap technology worked perfectly.

No hair could get caught in the floor nozzle - it’s tangle-free πŸ₯³

Info: The Turbo Brush (included in the True Pet variant) also has this Anti-Hair-Wrap technology.

Another unique selling point: Extra suction mode for carpet and hard floor

It is not only the unique DuoClean floorhead that makes this cordless hoover special.

On top of that, the device also offers a separate suction mode for carpets and hard floors.

For example, the brushes of the vacuum cleaner rotate a little faster in carpet mode to get the dirt out of the depths of the fibres even better. πŸ™Œ

3 suction modes: Eco, Standard and Boost

On top of that, there are also three different suction modes: Eco for less soiling, Standard for everyday cleaning and Boost mode for particularly heavy soiling.

This way, you can always adjust the suction power to the degree of soiling. πŸ’ͺ

You can see the buttons of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

Attention: This appliance has no automatic suction level adjustment.

LED headlights to detect dust under furniture

There are a total of 6 LED lights on the floor nozzle.

So you can see dust and dirt even under furniture and in poor lighting conditions without any problems. That makes the device the perfect upholstery tool. πŸ”¦

You can see the LED lights of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology with its LED lights in the dark.

Thanks to these practical lights, you are guaranteed to have sparkling clean floors. ✨

Optimal for allergy sufferers thanks to different filters

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is equipped with various pre-filters and an effective HEPA filter.

You can see the pre-filters of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the HEPA filter of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

This way, over 99.9 % of suspended matter, bacteria, viruses, etc., can be filtered.

So you can be sure that only clean air leaves the cordless vacuum cleaner.

This also makes the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology the optimal choice for allergy sufferers.

You can see the different filter classes in the overview.

In our test of the best cordless hoovers for allergy sufferers, you can find out more about this topic.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap as a hand hoover in the test

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap is not only suitable for vacuuming your floors, but can also be quickly and easily converted into a hand hoover. πŸ₯³

You can also clean hard-to-reach places, ceilings, upholstered furniture and cars.

Info: If you are interested in a device for cleaning hard-to-reach places, our test of the best cordless handheld hoovers might be something for you.

The conversion to a cordless hand hoover

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology can be converted into a handheld hoover in just a few simple steps.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is seen as a handheld hoover.

Simply remove the floor nozzle and the Flexology suction tube to only have the motor unit in your hands.

Now you can put on the different attachments - done!

The crevice tool for hard-to-reach places

With the included crevice tool, you can clean hard-to-reach places and corners and edges.

We were also able to thoroughly clean the slits between our upholstered furniture in our test. πŸ‘

Thanks to the Anti Hair Wrap technology, hair is also prevented from getting caught in the brush roll.

How handy is the Shark Anti Hair Wrap as a handheld hoover?

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap hand hoover is one of the heaviest devices we have had in our test.

Does the question naturally arise whether this is also the case with the hand hoover? πŸ€”

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap is a handheld hoover.

Here we have to say: Yes! Even as a handheld hoover, the device is quite clunky and heavy.

The motor unit alone is over 40 cm long.

But even though the device may not win the prize for the handiest cordless hand hoover, it is still well suited for removing pet hair and cleaning hard-to-reach areas. πŸ‘

These different models are available

Like almost all manufacturers, Shark offers different versions of its Anti-Hair Wrap Flexology cordless hoover.

The individual models do not differ in their range of functions.

Instead, the difference lies in the scope of delivery. πŸ‘‡

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap under review

In our test, we also looked at how well you get on with the Shark Anti Hair Wrap in practice.

How easy is it to put the unit into operation?

How manoeuvrable is the cordless hoover?

And can you also clean under your furniture with it? πŸ›‹

Here we would like to share our experiences with you.

Simple and uncomplicated delivery

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is delivered in a cardboard box.

Styrofoam is not used here. That's already a point in terms of the environment. πŸ‘

However, the individual parts are each wrapped in coated paper.

Is so much rubbish still necessary today? πŸ˜•

Info: If you register your Shark cordless vacuum cleaner on the Shark website, you will receive a 5-year warranty on your device.

You can see the packaging of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology IZ201UK.

You can see how the individual parts of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology are packed.

However, commissioning is extraordinarily easy.

Simply attach the dirt container to the motor unit and plug in the suction tube and floor nozzle - done. πŸ₯³

You can start vacuuming right away! Or at least almost.

First, the battery has to be charged.

We like that: All plug connections are of high quality and fit together perfectly so that nothing wobbles or jerks. πŸ™Œ

Various buttons for operation

There are three buttons under the display on the motor unit:

  • The power button for switching on and off
  • Button for selecting the suction level (3 levels)
  • Button for selecting carpet or hard floor mode

You can see the buttons of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the operation of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology buttons.

The buttons can be easily reached and operated with the thumb during cleaning.

You don't have to keep the buttons pressed during the cleaning process. Instead, you can easily switch through the different suction modes by pressing them several times. πŸ™Œ

Is the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology manoeuvrable?

At over 4 kg, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is not precisely a flyweight.

Therefore, one might mistakenly assume that the unit is anything but easy to move across the floor.

But in our test, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap proved to be exceptionally manoeuvrable. πŸ™Œ

You can see the different rollers on the underside of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

The various rollers on the underside of the floor nozzle are one of the reasons for the good manoeuvrability:

  1. Large rollers at the back of the floor nozzle
  2. Sliding pad
  3. Small side castors
  4. Soft roll
The cordless handheld vacuum cleaner runs for the most part on the motorised soft roller, and can thus be moved without effort.

In addition, the floor nozzle is equipped with a movable joint.

You can see the movable joint of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap cordless vacuum cleaner.

This allows the Shark Anti Hair Wrap to be manoeuvred across the floor without any problems.

Only when vacuuming stairs does the rather high weight of the cordless hoover become noticeable. In our opinion, the device is a little too heavy here. πŸ˜•

Perfect for cleaning under furniture

You might have guessed: the flexible Flexology suction tube makes the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology perfect for cleaning under furniture. πŸ₯³

And the best thing? You hardly have to bend over!

With the particularly flexible joint of the floor nozzle and the low height of only 8 cm, the floor is also vacuumed sparkling clean under your furniture.

For the innovative Flexology suction tube, the cordless hoover, therefore, gets a thumbs-up from us. πŸ‘

How loud is the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology in our test?

We also paid attention to the volume of the cordless vacuum cleaner.

We measured the noise level at the different suction levels to do this.

Here, depending on the suction power, the cordless hoover reaches 85.3 decibels.

You can see the Shark Anti Hair Wrap volume on the volume scale.

This is roughly equivalent to the volume of a piano playing. This means that the cordless vacuum cleaner is not quiet. πŸ‘‚

Here you can see the measured volume of the individual suction levels again:

Suction stage Measured volume
Eco 75 dB
Standard 80 dB
Boost 85 dB

But at least we did not notice any unpleasant whistling noises during operation in our test.

However, if you have particularly sensitive ears, there are much quieter models. Click here for our big review of the best cordless hoovers.

How long does the battery of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap cordless vacuum cleaner last

Another important point that we looked at very closely in our test is the battery life of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap. πŸ”‹

After all, you want to vacuum your entire home in one go without having to recharge the device at the socket in between.

The manufacturer states a running time of 60 minutes. That already sounds respectable.

However, the Shark Anti Hair Wrap only achieves this runtime in Eco mode. With a non-motorised attachment, i.e. you can forget about the innovative DuoClean floorhead.

You can see the battery level indicator on the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

In our test, we were able to vacuum through our flat for 40 minutes in standard vacuum mode and with the DuoClean floorhead. πŸ™Œ

In boost mode, the runtime is reduced accordingly. Here, the battery lasts for about 11 minutes.

The battery life of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is in the mid-range of cordless hoovers.

You can always read the remaining battery level on the practical LED display on the handle. So you always know exactly how long you have left to vacuum.

Info: The scope of delivery only includes a power supply unit for charging. A complete charger has been omitted.

This is how long the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology charges.

When the cordless vacuum cleaner is empty, you must recharge it before using it again.

It takes about 4 hours to charge the unit once fully. ⏱

That's not exactly fast.

Tip: The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology variant with dual battery comes with a spare battery.

The battery can be charged either while it is still in the battery-powered vacuum cleaner or when it has been removed.

You can simply replace it with the spare battery and continue vacuuming. πŸ₯³

Our experience in maintaining the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology

High effort with the Shark Anti Hair Wrap? - No way!

And we have also had this experience in terms of maintenance. πŸ₯³

However, to enjoy your cordless hoover for a long time, it is essential to carry out the following tasks regularly:

  • Empty the dirt container
  • Clean the filters
  • Clean the dirt tank
  • Clean the floor nozzle

We would like to talk you through these individual tasks step by step in the following. This way, nothing can go wrong.

Empty the dirt tank

With a capacity of 700 ml, the dirt container of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is quite large. However, that doesn't mean it won't get full. πŸ˜†

But don't worry, emptying the container is quick and easy.

First of all, remove the motor unit of the appliance.

Practical: When the motor unit is removed, the floor nozzle and the suction tube can stand freely in the room. You don't have to lean them against the wall.

You can see the button for opening the dirt bin.

You can see the button to open the dirt bin.

There is a button on the right side of the collection container.

The flap pops open when you press it, and you can easily empty the dirt.

Our tip for emptying the dirt tank

When emptying the dirt container, hold it so that the flap opens upwards.

The intake manifold is in this position on the underside of the motor unit. πŸ‘‡

The dirt container of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is seen being emptied.

This way, the collected dirt can simply fall out.

Clean the filters of the battery vacuum cleaner

The appliance is equipped with several filters to ensure that only clean air comes out of the cordless vacuum during vacuuming. πŸ™Œ

You must clean these filters at regular intervals to keep them that way.

This is the only way to guarantee that microscopic particles continue to be filtered out of the outgoing air.

Remove the dirt container

To be able to clean the filters, you must first remove the complete dirt container from the motor unit.

There is a button on the left side for this purpose.

You can see the button to remove the dirt container of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

You can see the removed dirt container of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology

When you press this button, the dirt container comes off.

Remove the filters and clean them

Now you can remove the two pre-filters located on the top of the dirt container.

You can detach the round HEPA filter from the motor unit itself.

The pre-filters are taken out of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

The HEPA filter is taken out of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

These filters can now simply be washed out under running water.

Caution: Ensure that the filters are completely dry before reinstalling them.

We recommend that you let them air dry for at least 24 hours. This will prevent bacteria from forming. 🦠

Clean the dirt tank

You must also clean the dirt container itself at regular intervals.

The dirt container can simply be rinsed out with water. This is not possible with most devices from other manufacturers.

You can see the dirt bin of the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology.

Allow the dirt container to air dry for at least 24 hours before reinserting it.

There is also a filter in the dirt container itself, but you cannot remove it. Therefore, it is unfortunately not possible to wash this filter individually under running water.

Clean the floor nozzle

Last but not least, you must clean the floor rollers of the DuoClean floorhead.

No hair gets caught in the brush thanks to the Anti Hair Wrap technology. So cleaning is relatively easy.

Clean the soft roll

There is a blue button on the side of the floor nozzle. When you press this button, the soft roller is released.

You can see the button to release the soft roller from the floor nozzle.

You can see the loosened floor roll.

Now you can easily clean the soft roll under running water.

Again, wait 24 hours for the roll to dry completely before putting it back in the machine.

Remove the glide pad and clean the suction tube

There are three eyelets on the underside of the floor nozzle that you can unlock with a coin.

After unlocking, you can remove the sliding pad from the floor nozzle to expose the opening of the suction tube and remove possible blockages.

You can see the eyelets for removing the glide pad.

You can see how the glide pad is removed.

However, we noticed in our test that you could not remove the second brush for carpeted floors from the device.

Nevertheless, all in all, we were satisfied with the simple and uncomplicated maintenance. πŸ₯³

Spare parts and accessories for the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology

There are all kinds of spare parts and accessories available online, if something should break. You can find those on the official Shark Website.

Here you can also find, for example, replacement batteries or additional attachments for the hand vacuum cleaner. πŸ™Œ

Whether it's the suction tube, motor unit, dirt container or anything else, you can easily reorder them online and don't have to replace your entire battery-powered vacuum cleaner.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology in price comparison

With the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology, you get a premium device at a fair price.

Compared to the high-quality devices from Dyson, you can save about half - what a bargain πŸ€‘

On the other hand, this device is not a true Dyson. This is particularly evident in the clunky and heavy design.

The cleaning performance, on the other hand, is great!

In the end, we can say that the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology is a powerful cordless vacuum cleaner at a good value for money. πŸ™Œ

You can save a few more quid if you do without the included spare battery and the True Pet version with Turbo Brush.

The Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology Review - Our conclusion

For our UK review, we put the Shark Anti Hair Wrap Flexology to the test.

The cordless hoover achieved impeccable cleaning results on hard floors and short and long carpets - and all without changing the floor nozzle. πŸ₯³

The Shark DuoClean Technology lets you vacuum hard floors and carpets with the same nozzle!

The cordless vacuum cleaner also has no difficulty cleaning corners and edges. πŸ™Œ

Overall, the handling is good, even though the cordless vacuum cleaner is clunky and heavy. However, its heavyweight is only noticeable when vacuuming stairs and used as a hand vacuum.

Otherwise, we were thrilled with the Anti Hair Wrap technology. No hair got caught in the brushes during our test. πŸš€

Overall, the Shark Anti Hair Warp Flexology is recommended to anyone who wants to vacuum a few stairs and is looking for a device with a good price-performance ratio.

More on the topic

  • How loud is the Shark IZ300 Anti Hair Wrap Flexology?


    The Shark IZ300 Anti Hair Wrap Flexology can be comparatively loud depending on the selected suction level. In our test, we measured a volume of about 75 dB in the lowest suction mode and 85.3 dB in the highest mode. This is roughly equivalent to the volume of a piano concert.

  • Is Shark better than Dyson?


    Shark offers high-quality and powerful cordless hoovers at a comparatively low price. The cleaning performance convinced us in any case.

    All in all, however, the devices do not come close to the innovative models from Dyson. But, on the other hand, they are only about half as expensive.Β 

    In conclusion, we can say that with a Shark cordless vacuum cleaner, you get a premium device at a good price-performance ratio.
