The classic umbrella has remained virtually unchanged for ages. While the humble umbrella does its job adequately to protect you from both rain and sunshine, there may be times you wish it was better designed. One of those times is when your umbrella fails on you in strong winds. It doesn’t take much of a wind to cause an umbrella to turn inside out or collapse. What you need is the Blunt Umbrella, an umbrella that its maker calls the ultimate defense against the elements.

The Blunt Umbrella is a marvel of engineering. It doesn’t look that much different from a standard umbrella but it has a host of state-of-the-art technology incorporated. The most impressive technology of all is arguably the Radial Tensioning System (RTS) that gives the Blunt Umbrella superior strength that can withstand winds reaching speeds of a hurricane. The Blunt Umbrella has been tested in wind tunnels at conditions beyond users would feel comfortable using an umbrella in.

The umbrella’s canopy has also been designed to be very aerodynamic to give the user the best protection from both wind and rain. Also, due to the excellent aerodynamics, the Blunt Umbrella is a whole lot more stable when held in high wind conditions and therefore less likely to fly right out of your hands.

Both the ribs and the shaft of the umbrella is made from fiberglass to keep the weight down while maintaining maximum strength. However, the Blunt Umbrella is still a little heavier than a standard umbrella as it is constructed from stronger and heavier material. The extra weight is not really that noticeable unless you have two umbrellas to compare with at the same time.
