The Blunt umbrella is a perfect blend of form and function. The key functional elements that needed improving from the traditional umbrella were resolved through the development of the patented Blunt tip. The Blunt tips open like miniature umbrellas within custom pockets at the canopy edge and perform multiple purposes to make the Blunt umbrella what it is. They complete the Radial Tensioning System by transferring the unique radial force evenly into the canopy. This even tensioning of the canopy creates a far superior structure and aerodynamic surface for overall superior performance. They reinforce the umbrella in a traditional area of weakness by eliminating the point loading at the rib end where umbrellas typically fail. The design means that Blunt umbrellas perform in all weather conditions – including winds of up to 115kmh.
