Dust Pick-Up Surpassing a Conventional Vacuum Cleaner
With the cleaning performance equivalent to a 2400 watt* vacuum cleaner, the Athlet excels in dust pick-up, just like a conventional vacuum cleaner.
Uninterrupted Vacuuming for Up to 60 Minutes
The Athlet runs on Lithium Ion battery pack, providing ultra high performance and an extra long runtime, within a short charging time.
Flex and Glide Your Way to a Perfect Clean
The Athlet makes vacuuming an all-round comfort with its flexible nozzle joint.
SensorBagless™ Technology
The SensorBagless™ Technology is smart enough to moniter the Athlet’s performance, signalling when cleaning is required.
Airflow System
The powerful airflow system picks up dirt and stubborn grime, and transfers them right into the dust container, providing a thorough clean.
Easy to use
Powerful cleaning performance in a light and handy appliance.
Ultra light – for the highest comfort while vacuuming
The Athlet is a lightweight vacuum cleaner. It has a low centre of gravity and, thanks to its sophisticated ergonomic parameters, it fits perfectly in your hand.
Maximum flexibility while vacuuming around and under furniture
Thanks to its flexible nozzle attachment, the Athlet is flexible to manoeuvre. This allows it to vacuum reliably even in hard-to-reach corners – and in places where there is no socket in sight.
Easy to store - a real plus when charging and storing the appliance, or when taking short breaks during vacuuming
The Athlet boasts an attractive, slim design that saves space by fitting in any gap. It can also be left in the open area.
Extra-long runtime – up to 60 minutes without interruption
Thanks to its highly efficient system and high-capacity Bosch Lithium Ion batteries, the Athlet vacuums for up to 60 minutes without interruption.
Short charging time: after just 3 hours, the battery pack is 80% charged.
No more long waits until the vacuum cleaner is ready to use again. After just three hours, the battery pack is 80 % charged. A three-stage electronic protection system reliably prevents overcharging, overheating and deep discharge of the rechargeable batteries.
Long-lasting high performance – thanks to the proven Bosch Lithium Ion Technology.
Bosch Lithium Ion Technology has been proven to work in Bosch Power Tools and E-Bikes, and is synonymous with high performance and a long service life of the rechargeable batteries. When combined with the highly efficient and aerodynamically optimised LongLife Motor, this technology ensures that the Athlet is designed for intensive use.
