|BLUNT UMBRELLAS - DESIGNED IN NEW ZEALAND
Blunt is the creation of kiwi Greig Brebner. Greig was tired of seeing blown out umbrellas in rubbish bins and set about finding a solution. Blunt has become an awesome international success with people all over the world loving the elegant engineering and fabulous design!
major flaw of conventional umbrella design is that in even light
winds the fabric can tear away from a tip or come away from the
ribs. When this happens, the whole structure collapses and the
umbrella heads straight to the landfill. The Blunt solution is a
uniquely tensioned canopy combined with a flatter aerodynamic
profile. This revolution in umbrella design also eliminates any
sharp edges and weak points.
the Blunt canopy unfurls the additional DOUBLE STRUTS redirect
the user's effort into the specially designed FLOATING RIBS.
These ribs are telescopic, and reach out like fingers stretching
into a glove. They transfer the opening force into the patented
BLUNT TIPS on the end of each rib. The tips then open like
miniature umbrellas in their specially designed pockets, evenly
distributing the tension right to the edge, where it is most
needed. The result is an unflappable
aerodynamic structure that sits effortlessly in the wind and
provides maximum control, even in the most demanding weather
